Yes, mind reading. But it’s not what you are thinking (get it?). I apologize if you came here looking for how to get thoughts directly from one mind to another in the science-fiction, ESP, fantastical sense.
Telepathy is the use of media for mind-to-mind communication. I call it Technologically-Mediated Telepathy, or TMT for short, which includes talking, writing, phones, tv, graffiti, the Internet, or any human communication medium including ones we’re working on, like direct neural links between brains with the help of a computer.
This blog also is about
- origin of the alphabet
- the feedback loop between mind and media
- future of media.
- the conquest of the electromagnetic spectrum
- science and religion
- readings of texts, histories and mysteries that flow from the Jews, the first fully alphabetized people, and
- occasional political rants without apologies but against my better judgment.
