Scientists can already control the actions of mice with the push of a button on a wireless controller. But why bother pushing a button when you can just “think the control signals.” And why control mice, when you can control human slaves?
Scientists have discovered that one good brain can telepathically provide guidance and support for multiple brains that are, shall we say, a bit weaker. Using this techno-telepathy, an intelligent and conscientious slave master can increase the value of the work of dozens of human slaves — without even thinking about it!
“We now have the tools to read and write to the brain,” he says. “So why not start thinking about things like synchrony and resonance? What happens if I measure the peak frequency and phase of your brain waves in a certain band and then stimulate someone else’s brain in the same area at that frequency and phase? Are there behavioural consequences to this type of physiological synchrony?”
Synchronisation could be extended to more than two people. BMIs could be used to create brain networks with multiple people experiencing the same transmissions. To return to the musical analogy, could this technology become the instrumental equivalent of autotune, where a band might only need one good musician – whose creative brain waves are being transmitted to everyone else in the band – for them all to seemingly perform well together live? __ http://www.irishtimes.com/business/mind-control-is-no-longer-science-fiction-1.2310259
It will be possible for one man to mind-manage many dozens of slaves at one time, by “fortifying” their executive function — steadying their weak and scattered minds “telepathically,” to allow them to better focus on the job, more conscientiously.
Another method of modifying the brains of slaves involves careful control over their diet. Making sure the proper nutrients — and microbes — are included in the diets of slaves will go a long way toward making them strong, non-violent, up-beat, mild-mannered, and conscientiously hard-working.
A 2011 study split a group of mice based on their personality: timid vs adventurous. Then the researchers took another set of mice with microbe-free guts. In half, they installed the microbiome of timid mice, and in the other half they placed the microbiome of adventurous mice. Lo and behold those germ-free mice took on the personality traits of the microbiome-owner.
In a 2013 study, using another mice model, researchers at the California Institute of Technology found that mice with autistic features—such as stress, anti-social nature, and troubling gastrointestinal symptoms—had much lower levels of Bacteroides fragilis than normal mice did. Worse still, when injected a chemical (4-ethylphenylsulphate) found in the guts of autistic mice in to normal mice, they developed autistic symptoms too.
In a 2014 study, researchers at University College Cork found that mice born via C-sections were found to have a greater risk of suffering from depression than mice born vaginally. Turns out, the C-section mice had far less diverse species of microbes in their gut, most likely because they couldn’t pick up the beneficial microbes found in their mother’s vagina.
If you want to get the most from your mind-controlled slaves, be sure to include plenty of carbs — along with the protein — in their diet. The brain will not work properly without carbs — particularly if it is being driven hard by techno-telpathy. If working in cold environments, also include plenty of fat in the diet.
In the coming age of superfluous humans, many slaves will be of relatively high intelligence. It is important to obtain a complete genome printout of each slave, in order to understand what the slaves’ limits are likely to be — both mentally and physically.
Published today in Molecular Psychiatry, the King’s College London study selected 1,400 high-intelligence individuals from the Duke University Talent Identification Program. Representing the top 0.03 per cent of the ‘intelligence distribution’, these individuals have an IQ of 170 or more – substantially higher than that of Nobel Prize winners, who have an average IQ of around 145.
… The researchers did not find any individual protein-altering SNPs that met strict criteria for differences between the high-intelligence group and the control group. However, for SNPs that showed some difference between the groups, the rare allele was less frequently observed in the high intelligence group. This observation is consistent with research indicating that rare functional alleles are more often detrimental than beneficial to intelligence.__ http://medicalxpress.com/news/2015-08-genetic-analysis-people-extremely-high.html#nRlv
The above study indicates that it is “bad genes” that primarily distinguish between the highly intelligent and the less intelligent. The fewer the bad genes one has, the more intelligent he is apt to be. We should not give up on the possibility of discovering (or devising) “good genes” for intelligence, however. That is where the true payoff will be found.
