Comment Loopback brain interface? (Score 0) 77

Could it be possible to insert somekind of electrode in the emtions center of the brain then another one to stimulate it? Someone could then learn to read emotional state and control it. No more irrational phobias or anxieties. You could stay calm and coherant in the worst situation. It could be the ultimate tool to control or emotional and mental health problems. It could be the perfect biofeedback tool to behavioral therapie. Oh my! So much potential! You could control a virtual emotional arm that could touch one own emotional state.

In videogames, you play against your own competence or against other players. The one which shows the most mastery at the game win. The goal of the game is competition. In simulators, you get to do something you could not because it would be too dangerous to attempt in reality. Driving a race car, an airplane, a train, ship, etc. The goal of the game/simulator is to procure an experience otherwise impossible or not convenient. I didn't get to play a lot of Postal. I don't remember if it was the first or the second but I remember the developers saying "it's a life simulator, the game doesn't require you to kill people. If you kill innocents, it's your own choice." Kind of hypocrite to give player guns and nothing to shoot. I guess Postal ain't a game, it IS a simulator: a civilian killing simulator. Let the game developers do what they want, but when they produce tasteless crap like Postal, don't support them. God damn, even GTA was a fucking masterpiece compared to that postal crap. And I don't like GTA.

Jailbreaking an iPhone is like reorganizing the desk of a control freak... it is only fun because they are some uptight. (sic)

So basically, you know better and you want to impose your opinion. What's the difference between you and Steve Jobs then? It's ok to act like you want to because you KNOW you are right? I'm sure Steve thinks he's right too. Blindly defending a cause doesn't make it right. And when everybody thinks they're right and act on that belief: war.
