If it worked like the article says, it would be awesome.

However, the powers that be would most likely uses this sell toothpaste and find out who has thoughts that don't fit the narrative.

The holy grail for liberal fascists is to get inside our heads and be able to censor our thoughts.

No, they'll pretend they can do it. They'll convince people that their terminally ill parent who opted to live in the cloud is really them. How? They've got every search they ever made, including all voice searches, messages etc. They know all their family, friends, wishes, fears etc. No wonder people will believe them. These pretend, would be dead friends and relatives will say how everything is better in the cloud, that they can have everything they ever wished for, every desire no matter how bad that desire is legal in the cloud. You can be superman or spiderman if you like. Everything about it is better than the old analogue life.

Then they'll allow a select few healthy people to download their brains into the computer. They too will say how wonderful it is and how everyone should do it. It'll all be so convincing that even you will believe it's real. You'll save up your money and happily pay to download your brain. Then they'll plug you in, the lights will go out and that'll be the end of you. Sure a perfect simulation of you will be used to convince people you know to join you. You'll be stone cold dead.

It'll be the biggest mass murder in the history of the world, and you'll have queued up and paid to be murdered.

Honestly that's normal I don't know why these media giants can't find any experts who aren't on drugs. I can't remember the last time these "experts" were right about something.

Does anyone else think the “superbrain” idea seems more likely to result in the Borg than in some sort of communal nirvana superpower?

Are they that different?

[–] Thisismyvoatusername [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Probably not, now that you mention it.

Get the chip in your brain goy so you can be on the internet... We won't backdoor it and turn you into a bio-robot I promise.

This is obvious. Perhaps we'll be more nonjudgmental to negative thoughts and appreciate everything for what it is.

Ha, who am I kidding.

[–] Merlynn 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Isn't that what we already have?

[–] Thisismyvoatusername [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Not really. Currently very few people use their brains on the internet.

I dunno,I see lots of people trying.
