BRAIN-READING COMPUTER DANGER
READ MY WRITTEN WORKS, NOT MY BRAIN PLEASE(9/5/2011)
On September 3, 2011, TechMediaNetwork.com published an article, repeated on FoxNews.Com about how brain-reading devices could replace the computer keyboard. On the matrix below the axis term is the 7th lowest ELS of BRAIN READING. It shares a letter kuf with an ELS of KEYBOARD. An obvious danger of such a system is that the Government could first read our thoughts too, and then perhaps CONTROL them, as an ELS of that word indicates. In the open text is ALL FORGOTTEN which may refer to what would happen to our independent thoughts (and freedom) if this system is developed, however this phrase was only found a-posteriori. There are three other short (3-letter) words that are highlighted. POWER and SATAN were found a-priori and were sought because the ability to read brains implies POWER that could be used for Satanic purposes. The Israeli unit of money, the SHEKEL was only seen a-posteriori. It also shares the letter kuf with BRAIN READING andKEYBOARD. The first letter of SHEKEL is the first letter of SATAN. Obviously a company that could read the brains of its potential consumers would stand to make a fortune (i.e, a lot of shekels). The news story about this technology follows the matrix.
Brain-Reading Devices Could Kill the Keyboard

The QWERTY keyboard has dominated computer typing for more than 40 years, but a new breakthrough that translates human thought into digital text may spell the beginning of the end for manual word processing. A first step toward such mind-reading has come from using brain scans to identify certain thoughts with certain words.
The fMRI brain scans showed certain patterns of human brain activity sparked by thinking about physical objects, such as a horse or a house. Researchers also used the brain scans to identify brain activity shared by words related to certain topics — thinking about "eye" or "foot" showed patterns similar to those of other words related to body parts.
"The basic idea is that whatever subject is on someone's mind — not just topics or concepts, but also emotions, plans or socially oriented thoughts — is ultimately reflected in the pattern of activity across all areas of his or her brain," said Matthew Botvinick, a psychologist at Princeton University's Neuroscience Institute.
Brain-reading devices would likely first help paralyzed people such as physicist Stephen Hawking, but still won't happen for years, Botvinick cautioned. There is also the problem of making brain scan technologies more portable, if ordinary people hope to get a shot at freeing up their hands from typing.
Yet Botvinick envisioned a future where such technology could translate any mental content about not just objects, but also people, actions, abstract concepts and relationships.
One existing technology allows patients suffering from complete paralysis — known as locked-in syndrome — to use their eyes to select one letter at a time to form words. Another lab prototype allows patients to make synthesized voices by using their thoughts to create certain vowel sounds, even if they can't yet form coherent words. But truly direct thought-to-word translation remains out of reach.
That's where the current work comes into play. Botvinick had first worked with Francisco Pereira, a Princeton postdoctoral researcher, and Greg Detre, a researcher who obtained his Ph.D. from Princeton, on using brain-activity patterns to reconstruct images that volunteers viewed during a brain scan. But the research soon inspired them to try expressing certain elements in words rather than pictures.
First, they used a Princeton-developed computer program to come up with 40 possible topics based on Wikipedia articles that contained words associated with such topics. They then created a color-coded system to identify probability of certain words being related to an object that a volunteer thought about while reading a Wikipedia article during a brain scan.
In one case, a more red word showed that a person was more likely to associate it with "cow." A bright blue word suggested a strong connection to "carrot," and black or grey words had no specific association.
There are still limits. The researchers can tell if participants had thought of vegetables, but can't distinguish between "carrot" versus "celery." They hope to make their method more sensitive to such details in the future.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no value is allowed for the axis term, here BRAIN READING. There was only 1 chance in 693 to have the single Torah hit of ALL FORGOTTEN on the matrix, but since it and SHEKEL were only found a-posteriori, neither can be included in the matrix value calculation. Of what remains the most significant term (that established the size of the matrix area searched) was KEYBOARD. It was there against odds of about 115 to 1. CONTROL had about 1 chance in 5 to be there, and SATAN was there against odds of a about 6 to 1. Because the matrix was only based on the 7th lowest ELS of BRAIN READING the initial combined odds of a-priori key terms is divided by 7, leaving a final p value of about 0.002. The matrix was thus found against odds of about 498 to 1.
