So, yeah. Telepathy is kinda already a thing, sort of. We just haven’t noticed it and it’s really not the province of individual humans, even though it sure is good at reading our individual minds, and getting better at it every passing day.
I’m going to write about this in more detail on my Patreon next week (I’m aiming for Tuesday (Feb 20th)), but here’s the basic premise for you to think about:
A large proportion of the world is online.
A HUGE proportion of the first world is online.
Our buying, browsing, app, and social media habits are recorded, monitored, and analyzed by dozens upon dozens of different companies. Perhaps even our conversations if they’re in range of a smartphone, tablet, or even PC microphone.
This info can be used to build a SCARY accurate picture of who we are, what we think, and what we want.
This info and these analyses are not centralized, limiting their effectiveness and application.
That decentralization is not necessary.
You can’t read minds. But something is reading yours.
Hope you sleep well tonight. Sweet dreams.
Hope to see you Tuesday on Patreon.
