Get out of my head!! How about Brain to Brain connections?

The first “social network” of brains lets three people transmit thoughts to each other’s heads.
Then things start to get interesting...

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Interesting but Nope…

The non intrusive reading of thought patterns through EEG etc isn’t so bad, but the injection of patterns/ information sets my alarm bells ringing.  Fumbling around with something so complex and more importantly, self balanced, as the brain will only result in trauma IMO. 

The brain has evolved to be a closed system, it can handle/ adapt to any kind of input/ stimulus through its own sensory channels but bypassing them is a kin to turning on a room light by injecting a high voltage into the wiring loom close to the light… fuses are gonna pop.

The brains sensory maps are just as plastic as the rest of the brain, the patterns they produce in response to external stimulus are influenced by the higher non sensory cortical regions. The hierarchy of sensory signals has to be followed precisely or the sensory cortex will learn the new invasive patterns, at the deficit of recognising the bodies own.   

TMS is like typing on a keyboard with hand grenades… nope.

It thunk... therefore it is!

None for me, thank you. IMO it sounds like the ultimate goal would be to share thoughts, possibly memories like Yager Pilots in the movie Pacific Rim. And do I have to detail out past misdeeds of alphabet agencies? I highly doubt it hasn't occurred to someone as worse things have happened.

Do you want someone knowing your innermost thoughts and ongoing dialog? Do you want to know thiers? Possibly how they beat their wife, steal from the church collection plate, or what could even be personal opinions, thoughts or fantasies about you? Would things ever be the same in how you saw them? Because, believe me, you never really know what's going on inside someones mind. My mind is lovely, dark and deep. But I have secrets to keep and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.

When I worked in the Mental Health field there were clients smaller in stature than me I never turned my back on or let them position themselves behind me. Staff have been killed on duty by clients and I've been attacked with Tonka trucks, chairs and other makeshift weapons more times than I could count. The mind can be a dark, sick scary place and yet they keep all outside proper appearances.

I would be more open to the DARPA Matrix style project where a human directly interfaces with a computer. I would not, however, be open to implanted chips under any circumstances. The thought of Administrating my machines from the comfort of my recliner does have a certain appeal to me and seems like it would be an orderly, logical process.

Unlike interfacing with a creature driven by emotions, hormones, adrenalin connecting to my wetware and possibly infecting or influencing it with their thoughts.
