Mind Meld

Interestingly, as I was surfing the web yesterday, this comment popped out:

"Mind-reading technology is a joke. It appears to be useful only if people believe it works - like a lie-detector test. There is no way to verify either technology. Obviously, if people believe that you have the means to read minds, then you can accuse people of all kinds of criminal intentions (pre-crime, anyone?)."

So, it may not catch criminals, but it can surely put us all into a hightened nervous state of mind. Never mind watching our backs, now we must watch our minds! Imagine having to stop a thought before it starts....Actually, that did happen once.... There was this Professor who was lecturing on Buddhism, and he said he was going to teach us all how to meditate. "Close your eyes and relax", he said. Then, "Now, ask yourself what your next thought is going to be." Well, Bingo! The lights went on! Because doing that leaves your mind empty of all thought!

Which gives us the way to beat that machine: Empty your mind before-hand, and there will be nothing for the machine to read. EXCEPT that it works with pictures, gauging your reaction to a visual stimulus. Not exactly what the movie Minority Report was talking about;

"The Minority Report" is a science fiction short story by Philip K. Dick first published in Fantastic Universe January 1956. It is about a future society where murders are prevented through the efforts of three mutants who can see the future."

Precrime is a system which punishes people with imprisonment for murders they would have committed, had they not been prevented.

Precogs are produced by identifying the talent within a "subject" and developing it in a government-operated training school —

Each of the three precogs generates its own report or prediction. The reports of all the precogs are analyzed by a computer and, if these reports differ from one another, the computer identifies the two reports with the greatest overlap and produces a majority report, taking this as the accurate prediction of the future.

The existence of three apparent minority reports suggests the possibility of three future time paths, all existing simultaneously, any of which an individual could choose to follow or be sent along following an enticement.//

Isn't it strange that the things that go on now were intuited by this author in 1956? It's really quite amazing.

here's my take:

Precrime=Our system of Justice. It has become a system of Guilty until proven Innocent. My friend is sitting in prison right now because his whole trial was about that. The accused--him--having to prove his innocence, rather than the prosecutors having to prove his guilt. Precrime turns the justice system on its head, as does the new Modus Operandi of "guilty until proven innocent."

Mutant precogs= Remote Viewers.

3 paths existing simultaneously=Shroedinger's Box.

There are just so many many ways for us to be stifled, monitored, controlled, silenced.

It makes one wonder why they are so afraid, and what exactly are they so afraid of? Ever tried applying for a job online? It's a weird psychological exam if ever there was one. Much more so than is required to work a cash register for $8.00 an hour.

Seriously, it feels as if we are butterflies pinned to a board....our wings fluttering while they peer with magnifying glasses inside us.

But...that door is opening again. That door of us that is not a butterfly on a board, but a butterfly soaring freely through the air. Open and beautiful and full of wonder. This time we don't fall.


As of writing this two years ago... today, January 16, 2013, I read this:

US Police

22:42 14/01/2013

WASHINGTON January 14 (RIA Novosti) - It seems like a scene from the sci-fi thriller Minority Report, but police in three US cities are already using or testing new technology for predicting crimes before they happen – and taking preemptive, concrete steps to prevent them, US media reported.

The crime prediction software, developed by Richard Berk, a criminology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, was designed for use by probation officers to calculate which recently released inmates are most likely to commit murder in the future.

“When a person goes on probation or parole they are supervised by an officer. The question that officer has to answer is ‘what level of supervision do you provide?’” Berk told ABC News.

Traditionally parole officers use criminal records and their professional judgment to decide what level of supervision a parolee needs. Now however those decisions are being made in part based on the predictions from Berk’s “precognition” software in the cities where it is being used.

To create the software, researchers analyzed a collection of data of more than 60,000 crimes, including homicides, then created an algorithm to find the people behind the crimes who were more likely to commit murder when paroled or released on probation, according to a Wired Magazine report.

Berk said the program could correctly identify eight future murderers out of 100.

The crime predicting program is already being used in Baltimore and Philadelphia and police in Washington DC are testing the system as well for minor crimes and plan to expand its use to more serious crimes if they conclude it is successful.

In the future, Berk said the algorithm could also be used to help set bail amounts, decide sentences, and predict lesser crimes.

A company that develops crowd control weapons for the military and law enforcement personnel have now created an advanced ’Minority Report’ style facial – and emotion - recognition system.

The Fraunhofer Institute which receives over 70% of its funding from government bodies, have developed technology that they are calling a Sophisticated High-speed Object Recognition Engine (SHORE).

The system can recognise faces with 91.5% accuracy, determine gender with 94.3% accuracy and estimate age with a mean absolute error of 6.85 years, all in realtime.

The eternal mystery we live in....the untapped frontiers of the mind. Mind over matter, reading minds.....

All skills long lost to us?

Lost, or hidden?
