Here is something to get your mind off the election. If you cannot see the embedded video (directly from the CBS site), click on the title and it will take you there.

I watched this report with an increasingly tense bipolar morbid-and-sheer-admiration fascination. After the video got rolling, my jaw dropped open in awe and I don't think I closed my mouth until it was over.

Shades of Ken Wilber controlling his own brain waves by volition...

What a time to be alive!

We all can control our brainwaves by volition. Interfacing to the external world is another question. That is technologically conditioned in extreme cases. Google <bio-feedback>. The real heroism is staying sane while suffering from a "locked in" condition. I would fail the test (I am fairly sure). If I had ALS, I would kill myself before I lost control over my limbs.

Do you realize what this means?

Your body has become unimportant.

Your mind is everything.

Control a voice unit?

Hell's bells, man! You can control a starship! Think of it.. literally... put your mind to work...
