Unlimited Thought Electromagnetically Induced - Hyper Mental Agility, What's It Worth, Your Mind?

March 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

As someone who runs a think tank which happens to operate online, I put a lot of thought into the category of thinking itself. What is it for instance which allows some people to be more creative than others and solve problems, and what is it that allows some people to have almost an infallible memory to the point of having savant tendencies? The human mind is incredible, and yet, what if we can improve on this biological wonder, and give the human brain more energy, energy which it doesn't have to create from within? What if we could slightly boost it, without overheating it? Okay so, let's talk about this for a moment, because I'm not the only one asking this question.

It turns out that there are many people working on this problem, for a variety of reasons - for instance to increase the uptake in learning, rote memorization, and increase the speed of training. In fact, there was an interesting article on the MIT Mim's Blog titled; "DIY Kit Overclocks Your Brain With Direct Current - Transcranial direct current stimulation works, and you can try it at home," by Christopher Mims posted on March 8, 2012 which took me aback. The article stated;

"DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. The long-term effects of TDCS are unknown, and if you mess up and put orders of magnitude more current through your brain than is typically used in TDCS, obviously, you could kill yourself."

Scared yet, well, I am and definitely hear what Chris is saying here, and the neuroscientist at GoFlow did admit the safety concern, but there are also advantages too. GoFlow, the company creating this device stated; "Air Force researchers were delighted recently to learn that they could cut [the time required to train drone pilots] in half by delivering a mild electrical current (two milliamperes of direct current for 30 minutes) to pilot's brains during training sessions on video simulators. There is also evidence that TDSC can induce the state of creative nirvana known as the flow."

Okay so, they did mention safety concerns, and I agree with the skeptical issues and safety concerns, so it's wise that they are addressing this as they proceed. I see unlimited applications. And bet someday battery operated devices like this maybe in football helmets in the NFL, racing helmets in NASCAR, attack pilot helmets, as well as being worn by writers, thinkers, scientists, and even politicians while debating under their hairline or pointed at them with a direct energy beam source.

Still, I wonder how many of us would actually be willing to try it without knowing the long-term effects. We do know that increased microwave frequencies from cell phones can cause brain damage, but under low doses there seems to be a positive effect in cognitive function. Right, noticed I use the words; "seems to be," and nevertheless, this line of inquiry is intriguing, and worthy of our attention. Indeed, that is all for now, but I surely hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
