So far we have barely touched upon the possibilities of neuroscience. And yet, the potential is enormous.
With more detailed knowledge of how the human brain and the peripheral neural system work, three main possibilities will open:
- directly reading the mind states
- altering the mind states
- intercepting and modifying sensory data
- reading the brain commands to organs
- inducing intense orgasms via brain-computer interface technology for ultimate cybersex experience
Of course, that would require a detailed understanding of how the human brain functions, including understanding such phenomena as consciousness, perception, memory, intelligence, imagination, etc. The development of brain-computer interfaces to nervous system will proceed in parallel with research into functioning of the brain. At the same time, faster computers will allow to use our better understanding of the brain to build detailed simulations, leading to improvements in artificial intelligence and eventually the uploading technology.
