IAN: Amazing article! That "the [brain] implant becomes naturally 'wired' into the patient's brain as neurones grow into the cones and attach themselves to the electrodes mounted inside," and that "An FM transmitter under the scalp transmits the signal without wires, and...no batteries," to operate the cursor on a computer is hard to believe!
It's actually bionic "telekinesis." Now if it works this way, it must surely be able to work the other way, that is, signals sent to a brain could control that brain from a distant location. The central planner's wet dream come true! Armies of ideal citizens, jumping to the central commands. "I think I love the Great Leader, oh Great Leader, to serve your plans brings happiness to my mind, but when I question the plan I feel pain, so serving the Great Leader's plan is good."
