Last week, scientists revealed some big news: At Duke University, they linked the brains of two rats so they could communicate with each other. The rats didn’t really know they were communicating, but one of the rats relayed information to the other through a form of telepathy.
The implications for this are huge. Imagine if we were one day able to link some of the greatest minds together to form an organic supercomputer capable of huge leaps forward in science and technology? We could finally have teleportation, flying cars, and puppies that never stop looking like puppies.
So my question for you is: If this technology were developed to the point that you could be inside someone else’s mind for a few minutes, communicating with them, experiencing the way they think, and tapping into their memories, with whose mind would you choose to link? I’ll answer for myself based on those categories, but I’m curious to hear your answer in the comments.
What about you?
