Get Out Of My Head!

It's only a matter of time before we're all linked neurologically, like The Borg; a collective consciousness. We'll be able to hear each others thoughts, and effectively communicate telepathically... we won't be able to run or hide from anyone, or any entity, and data will be transmitted en masse, or ideas will be disseminated on a mass scale, and even behavioral drugs: "OBEY!" "DESTROY!" "KILL!" "SLEEP!" What's scarily humorous about news like this is that literature and film have long predicted society's development of these kinds of questionable ideas, and their potential ramifications, both short and long term, good and bad... from HG Wells, to Aldous Huxley, and their present-day spawn...

Check out this article from Time Magazine:

Soldiers barking orders at each other is so 20th Century. That's why the U.S. Army has just awarded a $4 million contract to begin developing "thought helmets" that would harness silent brain waves for secure communication among troops... Ultimately, the Army hopes the project will "lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone"... The Army's initial goal is to capture those brain waves with incredibly sophisticated software that then translates the waves into audible radio messages for other troops in the field... "Having a soldier gain the ability to communicate without any overt movement would be invaluable both in the battlefield as well as in combat casualty care," the Army said in last year's contract solicitation... "It would provide a revolutionary technology for silent communication and orientation that is inherently immune to external environmental sound and light"... And don't overlook potential civilian benefits.
