We’ve spent the past decade handing Mark Zuckerberg our cherished memories, beloved photographs and intimate details of our day to day lives.

But that’s not enough for the social media titan: he wants to get inside your brain and access your thoughts directly.

Zuck has hinted that social networks of the future will be powered by telepathy, allowing ordinary people to beam their brainwaves and emotions directly onto the internet.

We’ve spent the past decade handing Mark Zuckerberg our cherished memories, beloved photographs and intimate details of our day to day lives.

But that’s not enough for the social media titan: he wants to get inside your brain and access your thoughts directly.

Zuck has hinted that social networks of the future will be powered by telepathy, allowing ordinary people to beam their brainwaves and emotions directly onto the internet.

He said there was already “crazy” scientific research underway which could help his dream become a reality.

Zuck said government researchers had already worked out how to remove the memory of solving a maze from one rat’s head and then implant it in another rodent’s noggin.

“Then that mouse, without ever having been through the maze, was able to go do it.

“That’s just straight out of the Matrix, right?”

He also discussed an experiment at Berkeley University in which researchers “can predict what you’re thinking about” by carrying out an MRI scan.

If this all sounds terrifying, then you might take a little solace from the fact Zuckerberg has at least thought about the implications of technology which allows humans beings’ mind to be read like a book.

And he appears to have decided that it’s best just to perform this super-creepy task effectively.

“There are all these ethical questions and all these interesting questions about how you do that well,” he added.

Currently, Facebook isn’t planning to try and read users’ minds.

But Zuck thinks telepathy could be a reality within 50 years.

If the human species survives that long, we could be living in a very scary world indeed.

something to look forward to?

  3. Hello Seeker.

    All of this reminds me of the saying: “Just because you can, does not mean you should.”

    But then, as far as I recall, Zuckerberg was funded and set up using NSA funding (or a similar source), but I can’t recall where I can across that nugget.

    A recent article in the London Review of Books, that dealt with Bitcoin and whoever it was that set it up, pointed out that people such as Zuckerberg and Gates, et al, who tend to have more or less marked Asperger or autistic tendencies, can’t deal at all well with mere unpredictable human entities (aka you and me). The Zuckerbergs and Gates of this world may be effective at manipulating data, but their solution to the “human problem” is to treat us as if we just need some hardware / software attached to make us more transparent and tractable.

    This is what Zuckerberg is going on about.

    I’m sure that what he is channeling is already done and feasible, it’s just not marketable at the moment.

    All the best to you, Seeker.

      very good point..and i also liked this:

      they most likely are..nerds incorporated..no social skills so they marry their computers..we know zuck was useless at being with people..😉
