Wireless brain interface

Today I read with fascination an article about the first wireless direct brain interface. I realize that it is just a first step, but it is the first step into what in the future will be a vast new universe.

There will come a point when we will be able to control anything anywhere in the world just by thinking about it. This is so far beyond the way we think about our interactions with the world now that the impact is difficult even to imagine.

I don’t know whether to think of this as a good thing or a bad thing, but then again I am looking at this from the point of view of someone, to use an analogy, who is trying to imagine what written language will be like in a world before written language.

I imagine that to future generations this will all seem perfectly normal and ordinary. They may look back on us with pity that we did not have this power.
