Software to Map Dreams

Scientists are claiming that the secret world of dreams has been unlocked with the invention of technology capable of illustrating images taken directly from human brains during sleep.

See the Telegraph article.

A team of Japanese scientists have created a device that enables the processing and imaging of thoughts and dreams as experienced in the brain to appear on a computer screen.

I wonder what a jumble of odd images would be the record of one person’s dream?

It would be possible for someone with the power or authority to scrutinise our dreams. This marvel would have been seized upon by some totalitarian states in the past if they had had the technology. Perhaps it will be developed as a means of getting information out of reluctant prisoners. Just to late to be used in Guantánamo Bay!

I would not like someone seeing into my dreams. It is not because I have anything to hide, I just feel it is the ultimate loss of privacy. Imagine someone somewhere knowing your every thought, your every dream. Imagine having to give an account for them at some future time. Ah… there is.

It is a good job I know I am on his side.

The LORD is righteous in all his ways and loving towards all he has made. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfils the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. (Psalm 145:17-20)
