The Hive Mind scenario

You know how you read in fiction stories about the hive mind, where many people all think the same controlled thoughts? Or indeed, for those who love their Star Trek, you have the beloved Borg, who like to assimilate people to all think just as they do? Well yes, up to now, its pure fiction, but we may be taking the first steps towards making it a reality!

Mind, of course, at the moment the Mind Meld being planned is more to see if many minds can work together, to see if they can get things done, but how long before its the minds being controlled? Or those powerful linked minds, controlling the minds of others? Not going to happen, well read this!

Agreed, this is at a very basic stage, and has only been tested on animals so far, but give it time…human tests must happen at some point! And yes, you’re right, I’d love to be part of that. And yes, is it so far fetched that in the future, a group of powerful minds might just be used to control the thoughts of others?

Mind, once you’re part of the all encompassing mind, will you know, or care?

OK, the other amusing piece of mind controlling amusement I had today, was in an email. I’ve got an assessment thing on Tuesday for a job, and I got an email from ‘System Integration’ telling me I had to report to them on arrival! Could I really be that lucky, getting my mind integrated into their system? Oh please, but I’m sure that sadly, its not going to happen. But a girl can dream.

Right the video. I remember this song still, though it must be nearly 50 years ago that I heard it for the first time, if not more. Amazingly, for a song that old, I found a live show performance

OK, lastly, 2 more things. On Thursday night, I went to a charity fashion show, and the wonderful photographer took a picture of me, after my hair had been styled, and here it is

Me in lacy dress

And very lastly, and I promise, the last request until just before it closes, the fund raiser to help me pay for my name change. Just imagine being able to read the blogs of Stephanie Harlean Carpenter, and give, however small.
