Actual mind reading, in my opinion, doesn't happen, yet. Yes, tech has come a long way, (I watch those shows too) but not true mind reading like knowing the words to a thought of another person. Technology can measure and map the brain while asking the patient to think of certain things. They can make a thought fly one of those toy helicopters in one show I watched, but the guy was wearing head gear connected to a computer. I think its very fascinating. They want to be able to use the brain waves to make, say, a disabled person be able to feel his legs so they can walk again. Its going to happen. I mean look at Steven Hawking. He can write on computer just by looking at the letters on a screen keyboard. That is awesome!!! And then there is my family, who knew something bad was about to happen. They were calling everybody in the family to find what was wrong. It ended up being me and my son. Our house burned to the ground, and my son's bed was already on fire when a friend went in to save him. We are gifted people. Then there is the point that I can send thoughts. I used to call my kids in for supper just by thinking about it. I had no control yet as to how I was doing it, but it happened more times than not. Cool, heh?
But to actually 'read' someone's mind; I don't think its possible yet. And I say yet, because I know it is coming. Wondering how much trouble that will be...lol Blessed Be...
