Would you trade the pen for a brain that writes what you think?

    Do you love the feel of a writing utensil between your fingers or keys beneath them portraying your deepest thoughts? Or would you trade that for a brain chip that automatically records what you're thinking?

      I would have way too much editing to do, if I had a brain recorder.

    Trade it then I could conserve the energy of my fingers for other things

    I think I'd opt for the brain chip, as long as I could turn it off occasionally, not sure I'd want it recording everything I thought. smile

      I would have to agree with VooDoo.  I think it would be very handy to have a chip that would record my thoughts, as I have some great ones, "spur of the moment", that I can't actually re-create when it comes to putting them to paper later, so to speak.  However, it would most certainly have to be something I was in complete control of, as I wouldn't want most of the random stuff floating through my mind recorded.

      I can recall a time when visiting my parents in Hilton Head, SC where I was outside having a cigarette.  Looking at the Spanish Moss dripping off of the Live Oaks in their yard, I couldn't help but to come up with a couple of descriptive lines which personified the trees as basically, "old bearded wise men who had seen it all".  But when my smoke was finished, and I ran inside to write the words down, it didn't sound anything like it did in my head.

      Then again...I would hate to have to "re-read" the various dubious thoughts I might have throughout the day.  I would probably end up hating myself!  lol

    I like my brain left as Nature intended it, and I love the clickety-clack of typing - so I'll skip the chip.  (Besides, if it malfunctioned it might spew out stuff I don't want put in writing.  smile  ).
