They call it “Targeted Dream Incubation,” and they’re pretty sure they can make it work. Critics call it “weaponizing sleep”–against the sleeper–and warn that it might be done through “Alexa” units that the unsuspecting consumer already has in his bedroom.
The good news is that the Federal Trade Commission has the authority to ban this. The bad news is, how would we ever know they really did?
And what about what might happen if governments get their hot little hands on this technology? Wow: Democrats unanimously elected! And suddenly everyone is so obedient! The CDC wants to see what happens if they inject you with Gorilla Glue? Why, sure! Where do I sign up to volunteer?
Go ahead, tell me this stuff doesn’t come from the pit of Hell and smell of brimstone. I won’t believe you, but tell me anyway.
Wood yiu beleave it??? We stil has peeple heer “at” Collidge thay “Thinck” Bad Thawts!!!! Thay doughnt think Rite Things “at awl” and In Facked thay think Wroong Things!!!

Remember, ten years ago, a number of TV “reporters”–and Judge Judy, too–suddenly started talking gibberish? On camera, in fact. They couldn’t help themselves. And as far as I know, nobody ever found out what was wrong with them.
In 1957, in a Young Adult “science adventure” novel by Hal Goodwin (dba John G. Blaine), The Electronic Mind Reader, the bad guys get hold of a new technology that enables them to stop scientific projects by scrambling the scientists’ brains. The victims are reduced to spouting gibberish.
Hal Goodwin was in the loop. He’d worked for quite a few different government agencies, traveled the world, and knew a lot of people high up on the ladder.
So what had he heard of, or glimpsed, in 1957 that inspired him to write that book? Which seems a particularly scary little book today, now that big-name Scientists are talking about hatching a new technology that will allow them to put stuff into someone’s brain without cutting him open. Or take stuff out. And–get this!–they describe it as “reading” the subject’s brain. As in The Electronic Mind Reader.
Using technology wisely, we can all become sock puppets. The only question to be asked is… whose?
Are they, uh, daring God to intervene? Does that ever turn out well?
Hey! How come nobody ever invents something that can help get government off our backs? Like, press a button and a Deep State computer fries itself, all data lost forever. That would do us some good. But no–they’ve just gotta invent more ways for Big Brother to feed us to the fishes.
I’ll have more to say about this later today, when I review a Young Adults “science adventure” story from the 1950s that accurately predicted this research.
You put the little cap on, see–the one with the electrodes in it–and they can extract all kinds of information out of your mind. And maybe, someday, they’ll be able to put things in! Now they can take things out; tomorrow they can put things in.
We need rescuing from sin and folly. Satan plays the tune on his hornpipe, and we’re dancing off the cliff.
I was washin my Prefesser’s Toylet Paper to Save The Planet it is reely hard “to” do becose i alyaws fall apart “befour” i can hang It Up to dreye whenn he Come in he has got Grate News!!
He sayed “soon thay goin” To has Compueters thay can “deleat” yuor thohghts without yiu Even know it hapens and The compueters thay can reed yuor Mind and aslo Put thuhghts In! He sayed boy “That “is” jist” fan tastic! “Thay can” take all The Bad thouhgts out and Put good thoohghts in!
Do yiu seee waht this meens!? Noboddy thay wont has no bad thuhhgts anymore! Us Intellecturals whoo are Smart we wil de-side waht Ordrinary “dum” peple thay wil “Think from” now on!! thay wil ownly Think watever thuohgts we lett Them think!! It wil bee lyke al of them thay are In “sensativvity trainin al” the tyme Evry day!!! So now “thay wil” al beleave in Climbit Change and Gender Fludity and Woorld Govermint! and aslo thare wont Be “no moore” christins and evry boddy wil suport A Wimmin’s Rihght To chose!
So yiu see it “is” jist lyke we alyaws Say, that Sceince it alyays has Got the Antser! and oncet We gets al “them ” Peple plugged In To the compueters thare Wont “be no” moar Questoins neether!!!
Yeah, I know–first you have to find some before you can delete ’em. But for those of us who still have thoughts, we are now warned about “machines that can read our thoughts,” brought to you by the exciting new field of neurotechnology.
This, they say, could lead to “brain hacking” and other “intrusions.” Like, you wake up in the morning and find yourself thinking, “Y’know, it really is time for a world government! And George Soros is just the one to run it! Man, I love Hillary Clinton!”
The horror, the horror…
We might even get computers that allow you to “type just by thinking.” That doesn’t promise much in the way of readability, let alone literary quality.
Anyway, it truly bothers me to contemplate foolish, power-hungry, sinners getting so much power. And you know they’ll pitch it to us the greatest thing since duct tape. Just wait’ll you see the sales job that they do on this. Don’t be the only one on your block who doesn’t have a computer interface!
God’s word is the antidote. He won’t just sit up there and watch the fun.
I found comfort today in Psalm 46. So here it is, King James Version.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
God is able to deal with nincompoops who try to rule the world.
The catch is, in order for them to hack your brain, you have to help them out by putting on some kind of “wearable,” or a cap with electrodes. You can get one of these–it’s used by video gamers who are too lazy to manipulate a mouse or a joystick–for just $300: “to control games.”
But the real game is on you, kimosabe, and you’re the pawn.
In the meantime, “ye shall be as gods,” just like the Serpent in the Garden promised.
Well… some more than others. It depends on who’s at what end of the electrodes.
“The scientists have discovered a way to implant associations in people’s brains without the subjects being aware of it happening,” reports The Daily Mail.
Isn’t it wonderful? To quote from the news report, “The people taking part [in the experiment] thought they were seeing the color red when looking at black and white stripes, and had no idea this was happening.”
What a boon for our permanent ruling class. Imagine lording it over a whole population that “knows” only what you stuff into their defenseless brains.
Hmm… sounds kind of like college, doesn’t it?
How high will God let these people grow before He cuts them down?
