To the junkyard you go... [/quote] Imagine if you will, such an implant thing becoming sophisticated enough that you can [i]read webpages[/i] with it. Imagine if you will, being able to read and post on GLP simply by thinking about it. Being able to send/receive texts just by thinking about it. Being able to store your personal data inside your own head, instead of on some corporate owned cloud or home PC Being able to access all the knowledge of the world just by thinking about it. Details step by step instructions for anything and everything instantly available to your brain. That would be a pretty big bootstrap augmentation for many many people! Well these things have been in sci-fi novels for decades, not much more sinister than the comm-pads that did all this stuff, such as in star trek, which have now come to life in the form of the tablet pc :1dunno1: [/quote] There have been experiments in Russia using complete darkness. Complete darkness is very hard to obtain. It has there been noticed that all life, from plant to ant, put out light. It was also noticed that if any life form is threatened it puts out more light. It also can quickly learn if the threat is just threat or if there is full intent to harm. We know. It is more important in learning not to know. We limit what we allow ourselves to know. The best definition of wisdom is the knowledge of what to reveal and what to conceal. That's a pretty fucking lazy existence.

Scientists have created a "sixth sense" by creating a brain implant through which infrared light can be detected.
Although the light could not be seen lab rats were able to detect it via electrodes in the part of the brain responsible for their sense of touch.
Similar devices have previously been used to make up for lost capabilities, for example giving paralysed patients the ability to move a cursor around the screen with their thoughts.
