BRAIN PRINT IDENTIFIER’S ASTONISHING ACCURACY & SOME VERY ...
No one likes talking about mind control, or mind reading, or thought manipulation technologies. After all, beyond the fact that they seem magical, almost unbelievable, no one likes to admit that human minds could be subject to manipulation and external influence; it violates a sense of our individuality and sovereignty that is deeply embedded in our culture. And the implications of such technology challenge our understandings of the relationship of the brain, the mind, and even jurisprudence. Is someone under "mind control" responsible or not for their actions? And if so, to what degree? There is for example a clear case that the alleged assassin of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan, exhibits patterns of behavior and suggestibility that suggest that he was a victim of such techniques and technologies.
Yet, the evidence for their existence cannot be denied. There are any number of patents concerning them over the decades - some of which I have talked about in some of my books such as Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men - which indicate an ongoing interest in them by scientists, and by our increasingly paranoid deep state. And now, they have taken yet another turn, according this important article shared by Ms. K.F.:
Scientists can now Identify individuals based on Brain Waves
Note the crux of the new technology:
But now, researchers from Binghamton University have found a more efficient way to identify people—using brain waves.
Because people react to various stimuli—such as foods, or words, or celebrities—differently, it means people’s brain waves will also exhibit varying patterns when these things are presented to them. No two people will show the same brain pattern when presented an image of, say, a dog.
This led researchers to look into how this can be applied to security and identification. They tested the brain activity of 50 individuals who wore electroencephalogram devices as they were shown 500 images (which included images of pizza, Anne Hathaway, a boat, and words).
The result? Significant discrepancies in brain activity that was enough to define a ‘brainprint’ with 100 percent accuracy.
Now let your mind invoke the craft of imagination, and to speculate and extrapolate possible implications. In doing so I am quite confident that you, the reader, willl see many of the same potentials that I see. Note, for example, that individuals respond to images of various things differently, and this response, recorded on an electroencephalogram, can identify that individual with 100% accuracy. From there it is a short step to the conclusion that a statistical sampling of many different individuals, viewing the same sets of images, might exhibit similarities of wave structure, even though individual responses are slightly different. The reason for the differences? Perhaps the image - we'll call it the "statement" - is embedded in each individual's responses in a different context, and hence, the response of the brain's neuron structure is slightly different. Over time, it is conceivable, if this hypothesis should prove true, that a stastistical database could be compiled to allow one to read someone's thoughts: "She's looking at an apple; he's thinking of his dog," and so on. Indeed, I've blogged about precisely this possibility in conjunction with Japanese neurological research on this website.
Go a step further: if such should eventually be achieved, then it would become possible to reverse the process by stimulating various parts of the brain via electromagnetic signals and thus to inject thoughts into an individual's brain. Again, this technology has already been written about and various patents have already been taken out for such devices.
Go a step further, and here, we are now entering our very high octane speculation: suppose that one individual's brain waves could be modulated, like carrier waves, with the "brain print" of another individual. In effect, what this would produce was one person who would have not only his or her own thoughts (and, presumably, memories), but someone else's thoughts and memories. It might, with enough research and money, even be possible to produce a more or less permanent "coupling" via such techniques between individuals. And this, in its turn, would be an invaluable technology, for miltary communications and operations, for "population control", for "insider trading"... the possibilities are almost limitless.
So what's the bottom line here? Just this: if we can think of it, rest assured, the black projects-deep state world has thought of it too, and has been hard at work on it for a very long time. We're familiar with the "psychic driving" and "de-patterning" torture techniques of CIA MK-ULTRA "psychologists" like Dr. Ewen Cameron. But these, I suspect, are the tip of an iceberg, a kind of Frankenstein glimpse we were allowed to see. I suspect the real technogies were much more subtle, and that such studies have been underway for a very very long time...
... and that should give one pause.
See you on the flip side...

Whoa whoa whoa. I always knew my ex-girlfriend’s school was up to no good lol. What I’m unsure of here is after obtaining that statistical analysis is it possible to have a lock on a person’s “brainprint”? For example could they then, without showing an image, pick a participant in the experiment out of a crowd using their unique brain signature? If our phones are already recording our heart rates, who’s to say they aren’t collecting out brainwaves everytime we look at an image on the screen?
The TV series Babylon V has always been one of my favorite series for reasons similar to X-Files and Fringe. There were times when one was exposed to ideas that seemed more “current” than “futuristic”–give a decade or two. With its cosmic war themes, advanced technologies, an ancient history of conflict between harbingers for order (the Vorlons) and chaos (the Shadows) one can find a veritable pot potpourri of ideas often discussed here in these forums with some very engaging stories.
There were three episodes in Season II and III that have implications to this and previous postings. In Season II episode 6 (“A Spider in the Web”) we have the story of an individual who is recovered and brain-dead, then is “re-programmed” as an assassin for covert operations. In this episode the object is an attempt to commit corporate sabotage by destroying two representatives representing Mars and a technology firm. In Season III episode 4 (“Passing Through Gethsemane”) we have the story of the reformation of a serial killer by “death by personality”–where capital punishment has been replaced by a “reprogrammed personality” who serves the community through a suitable charitable organization. (In this case by becoming a Jesuit priest.) In both of these episodes the agents performing the procedure are members of an organization named PsyCorp. Though not directly mentioned the consistent use of psychic manipulation implies the possibility of technologies under review here. In a slightly different vein, series III episode 14 (“Ship of Tears”) discussed the use of advanced psychics who are electronically enhanced and become the CPUs for Shadow vessels through brain implants. Though the mechanisms are not directly addressed one wonders if the implants functioned as a translator of brain-waves between two different biological entities into a common communication layer. (In this one one of the victims is awakened and she interfaces with B5 itself–so one has to consider several of the prior episodes to get bigger picture. What is curious about this episode is the presentation of the program required to get from one to the other.)
If TV is not directly penetrated by someone to condition the public to certain ideas, it certainly appears to be. There are an additional number of episodes using other means of mind manipulation through parasitic entities and the tampering of B5’s chief of security by psychic driving and depatterning. When you consider the other forms of manipulation used to influence people’s behaviors and the amount of time spent on these themes, one would think the series is really about the use of technologies and techniques to “evolve” the cosmos via mind-control toward goals set by agents advocating two poles (order and chaos)–and the “human” response to push the “third” way between them. It wasn’t until I started reading works in these areas a decade ago that I realized how pervasive these themes were here and how dark a future they painted in its direction. For a series that pushes the envelop of mind-control to its extremes I can think of no better place to start. It’s not a pretty picture.
I recommend anyone interested in the esoteric agenda that lies behind Hollywood check out the website Jay’s Analysis.
OrigensChild, thanks from an old B5 fan! Best SF show ever; if you have not watched it, you are well-behind the curve…
B5 was near-unique in incorporating ESP as a fundamental part of its Universe, good and bad. As well, other species were shown with ESP as fundamental, assimilated parts of their culture. Ground-breaking, and probably a partial reason why the series was ‘disappeared’.
B5 was also ground-breaking in its melding of mind-control technology with telepathic techniques. Probably also why the B5 Universe was ‘disappeared’. Too close…
I think, like “The X-Files”, B5 was an ‘awakening’ show that was overlooked until its themes rang a bell in the populace. Then, the boot came down…
Wikipedia on “A Spider in the Web”:
“Sheridan recalls details of a project codenamed Lazarus, an Earth Force cyber-experiment from the 2230s which sounds similar to what Talia described regarding Horn. Further research, using the computer, reveals that it involved using subjects on the verge of death and hard-wiring their brains with a computer intelligence. Telepaths would focus the mind of the subject on the moment of death, shutting out all other conscious thought, with the computer taking complete control over the body.”
Wikipedia on “Passing Through Gethsemane”:
“…sentenced to “death of personality”, the 23rd century response to the death penalty that obliterates a criminal’s mind and restructures it … so, minus his criminal tendencies and his memory of his previous life, he performs constructive rather than destructive acts for the rest of his days.”
Wikipedia on “Ship of Tears”:
“The Shadows have infiltrated the Psi Corps to acquire telepaths for use as living processor cores to protect the connection between the being and the ship from telepathic interference.”
Yep. I have been a fan all of these years. My wife and I were enjoying the series again these past few weeks when it suddenly dawned on me how steeped the program was with all forms of mind control. As I was reading this article, I realized telepathy may be just another technique of reading one’s brain waveform–hence the flavor of my examples here. Telepaths were the result of selective breeding and genetic research in the B5 universe. In our time, once machines are designed to achieve telepathic capabilities it’s a logical progression to human enhancement to achieve the same effect. Since humans are bioelectric systems, with the development of additional sensory tissues that measure human brain waveforms, telepathy may become a realized ability in the human species.
Thank you for summarizing the episodes though. I thought my response was already too lengthy and wanted to focus on linkages to this revised view.
OrigensChild, how would you classify that Shadow-side creepy-crawly that perched on your shoulder, sent-in a neural cord to your brain and nervous system, and took-over your being? (On Londo and on Mars ‘rebels’.)
Also, there was long-range telepathy when Sheridan and Delenn were orbiting Z’ha’dum, the Shadows ‘reached-out’ telepathically, and they all were ‘ordered’ to descend to the surface. Only Lennier’s ‘dead man’s switch’ got them away by taking over the ship’s controls and flying them away…
Those creepy crawlies (mentioned in the first as a parasitic creature) didn’t necessarily imply telepathic control. These were neural interfaces interwoven into the host directly linking the brains of each, but with the parasite having a totally different agenda than the ones in Season III episode 7. In “Exogenesis” the parasites collect the experiences and memories of races through the cosmos and time to preserve them from loss. The parasite in the Mars episode you refer to are a different species than the ones infecting Minbari leaders (Londo and others), but both were bred by the Shadows to infiltrate governments and execute a predetermined agenda. The parasites in “Exogenesis” were cooperative and provided mental and physical advantages to the host. They provided greater health, long life and the opportunity to experience worlds that were otherwise out of reach to for normal people. The “keeper” infecting Londo were far more manipulative and controlling. When they could not coerce the host, they assumed control of the host to execute the task. Yet, as I pondered the implications of both, it dawned on me that you still have some mind-control occurring between both. No one said all mind-control techniques had to be used for evil purposes, but the external influence is undeniable.
In the second episode you mentioned Z’ha’dum was loaded with technologies of many kinds. You may have also observed that the Shadows may have been telepathic, too. (Their ability to communicate with Morden seems to imply such a connection, but like so many technical details, not a lot of this actually explained. The mystery was part of the story line itself.) If any race had the ability to amplify and project telepathic signals to scan and modify brain wave functions for communications and remote control, the Shadows would. Given that their corporeal bodies seem to lie in a different “frequency” (at least in the light spectrum) than most species presented in the series the frequency itself may have actually been an additional natural layer not discussed but having a direct bearing on the strength of all of their sensory inputs and outputs. Even then we cannot rule out the use of technologies to enhance those at a distance.
Goshawks, thank you for the brain exercises, but it’s just speculation here. The point is, this article has given me some reason to rethink some of the curiosities of the B5 universe–and it’s links to brain waves, consciousness (as non-local) and mind control. There are many things about the B5 universe I cannot explain and I wouldn’t want to reduce everything to one grand unified theory of science behind it. I am definitely not a scientific materialist, either, and I do recognize the outlines of a basic metaphysic of an eastern flavor within it’s broad outlines. Any solutions I could offer are childish guesses. B5 is a complex pot potpourri of techniques and technologies of all flavors–which is part of it’s enduring legacy for those who have observed it with interest.
Centari leaders, not Minbari. Sorry.
OrigensChild, thank you for such a wonderful reply! You sparked some neural connections (remembrances) that had long fallen into dormancy. It is nice to swap memories with a fellow traveler…
In memory of the Vorlons; Kosh-isms:
Delenn: That is why Kosh cannot leave his encounter suit. He would be recognized.
Capt. John Sheridan: Recognized? By whom?
Kosh: Being seen by so many at once was a great strain. I returned to my ship to rest. You have a question?
Sheridan: Nobody knows it was you. Everyone saw something different, something from the… the legends of their own world. But it was still a terrible risk. After taking such care to hide what you really are, why take that chance?
Kosh: It was necessary.
Sheridan: [sighs] Well, as answers go, short, to the point, utterly useless, and totally consistent with what I’ve come to expect from a Vorlon.
Sheridan: You know, I just had a thought. You’ve been back and forth to your homeworld so many times since you got here — how do I know you’re the same Vorlon? Inside that encounter suit, you could be anyone.
Kosh: I have always been here.
Sheridan: Oh yeah? You said that about me, too.
Sheridan: I really hate it when you do that.
Sheridan: Why are you here?
Kosh: We were never away. For the first time, your mind is quiet enough to hear me.
Sheridan: Why am I here?
Kosh: You have always been here.
Sheridan: What’s inside there?
Kosh: One moment of perfect beauty.
[Sheridan experiences one moment of perfect beauty.]
Sheridan: I had no idea. No idea at all!
Sheridan: Thank you.
[Exit Kosh; enter Ivanova.]
Ivanova: Another lesson? What this time?
Sheridan: Beauty. In the dark.
Ivanova: Must be working. You’re beginning to talk just like a Vorlon.
Kosh: Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Talia: Ambassador! Ambassador Kosh!
Kosh: There is a question?
Talia: Yes! I’ve been scanning Mr. Abbut all day and his mind is still just as empty as when we started; and these phrases that you keep speaking in, they don’t make any sense.
Kosh: Ah, you seek meaning? Then listen to the music, not the song.
Talia: Ambassador, I’ve thought it over, and I don’t believe that I can continue with this assignment.
Kosh: Your belief does not enter into it; we have a contract!
Talia: I know that, but you don’t really need a telepath.
Kosh: What is need compared to the path?
Kosh: The truth points to itself.
Kosh: They are alone. They are a dying people. We should let them pass.
Cmdr. Jeffrey Sinclair: Who, the Narn or the Centauri?
Sinclair: Why? (the Vorlons having just destroyed Deathwalker’s ship)
Kosh: You are not ready for immortality.
Kosh: The avalanche has already started; it is too late for the pebbles to vote.
Kosh: And so it begins.
Sheridan: Damnit, what do you want? What do you want?
Kosh: Never ask that question.
Sheridan: At least I got a response out of you. So what’ll it be, Ambassador?
Kosh: I will teach you.
Sheridan: About yourself?
Kosh: About you. Until you are ready.
Sheridan: For what?
Kosh: To fight legends.
It is totally not surprised me! This had going on for ages, who knows which level of technology now they are using.
Besides, as far as I do notice something interesting, music for example, some people respond to certain music, but the same type of music may not effect other type of people, for one good example – The Beatles, their fans so crazy, they could chase behind them like a bunch of mindless creature, if you are not one of their fan, you will not understand what cause such a sensation, and that not just Beatles, like back in my younger time, many of my childhood friends will fancy an Idol or two, some go as far as holding banners and bring flowers and gifts, usually we call their action = Chasing a Star. But for whatever reason non of the idol hit me as hard as hitting some of my friends, I have no idea why.
Therefore I suspect certain type of music resonance only have effect or have some kind of attraction on certain type of people, could be the synchronicity of the brain wave?
I remember when I read the news back in those years – Leslie Cheung hitting the paparazzi for calling him gor gor 哥哥 (meaning brother). I have this odd feeling that he may have some kind of anxiety, if he doesn’t seek help, something going to happen to him, few months later, he jumped down from his hotel room >.<!
perhaps a little autotuning sample might give an insight
our first thought is usually to consider the social and personal impact on the singer and the media
might be better to consider that our understanding is the tip of a much bigger iceberg and that we as energy beings are constantly being tuned. if our media can be tuned up so to speak, imagine what can be done to our attitudes, desired, goals – everything
heck we might even chase stars to our own detriment.
we might even be driven to addictive destructive behavior
kinda like those rats that chose cocaine over food to their own death
please keep in mind those lab rats were imprisoned and deprived of healthy environment
rats with healthy more natural lives ignored the cocaine stimulus completely
so keep positive and work at being the natural form we want to be, right?
I can tell you when my mind is racing and my brain’s voltage is sky high, listening to fast paced music is calming while listening to slow music is anxiety inducing. So the entrainment is fluid depending on the current state of the brain.
TPTB have been programming the sheep for centuries. The more I see of these mind control experiments the more I’m convinced that we have the abilities and power to create a much different world than fear, control and slavery. I think much of the brain research is for clones/robots as well as controlling humanity.
They have created a materialistic world and left spirituality out. Psychedelics are illegal because they open the mind to new dimensions and spiritual experiences they don’t want known. What are they scared of?
Meanwhile you have the elites and high level govt officials attending summer camp where they praise a 40 foot stone owl and perform mock human sacrifice rituals.
People are waking up more and more, the majority don’t trust MSM and “illuminati”, at least the word is also well known in just the past few years.
At the current level of research, this method is simply a fancy ‘identification’ machine. 100% accurate, or so they say.
This brings up sub-personalities, or – in the vernacular – multiple personalities. Extensive research has been done on some people, where MP1 has different brainwaves than MP2, MP3, and so on. Plus, different associations, likes and dislikes, even left-right brain dominance. So: Would you be able to record your initial scan for the corporation, police, alphabet agency, etc, under MP2 – and then ‘defeat’ the system by coming-in as MP1?
In a darker mode of the above, alleged MK-ULTRA techniques included splitting the personality by traumatic means and then ‘implanting’ one personality with the desired agenda. ‘Shift’ of the personality in charge was accomplished through keywords. What if this technique was ‘black budget’ research specifically-designed to defeat ‘100%-sure identification’ techniques such as Joseph mentioned?
thought you’d enjoy adam ruins everything. fingerprints were a ruse by none other than francis galton and mr global for generations. lie detectors too
gotta love the videos since it’s clear how the conspiracies are being mainstreamed progressively faster. that’s the more curious aspect for me.
meanwhile, as below so above. i’m more into understanding intent (and i have only good intent for doing so). good in terms of good outcome as well as good accuracy. good in an e w deming kinda way.
so neil sanders as mentioned below is way scarier than adam conover above. they’re both useful for context though. so far i’ve found context the most vital part of building good intent.
anyone ever considered what resonant beings we are? and the ease with which any and all resonant beings are entrained? just like any good receiver, though, we must be good transmitters as well.
and toward that end
“I Am HAARP” – Power of the Human Mind
As in Dr. Farrell’s The Third Way and his reference to CERN.
your thoughts are not your own?
sanders makes a good point to keep positive
my logic goes to considering possibilities and their consequences. it may seem a challenge at times. it always feels imperative to keep positive. just as it’s hard to picture a wild animal feeling sorry for itself, it’s hard to picture a successful survivalist picturing anything other than their own survival. many such survivors have been researched. the one common trait they held is their clear intent to pass through whatever their current hardship. think back on the last seriously scary thing you survived well. you may have had doubts about any number of aspects. you necessarily had no doubt of some positive outcome
using this logic, one can also get past mr global’s predictive programming of decades if not centuries, to realize any major dude with half a heart…. in other words it all goes to intent. even and especially the worst require our best. for our sakes. and perhaps theirs too.
meanwhile, mr global, michael aquino, heinz kissinger and any number of such folk who apparently clearly demonstrate and publish ill intent for the world if not universe seem intent on doing their best to daze, confuse, constrain, limit, off balance,…. the rest of us.
ZDB, I am going to go semi-mystical here, so pass-on if that is not your bag…
The baddies do not want us to learn one important thing: We are Creators, no matter whether we are conscious of that capability or not. Whether it is a ‘collapse of the waveform’ mechanism or simply invoking God through us, it is there. And ‘On’ all of the time…
One teacher explained it this way: Thoughts + Emotions = Manifestation. You can think of it in a ‘car’ metaphor. Thoughts are the steering wheel, and emotions are the gas pedal. This is why obsessive thoughts bring no manifestation if there is little emotion behind them. Contrariwise, muse about something with great emotion behind it, and voilà! This holds both at the individual level and at the collective level.
Hence, the baddies’ effort to keep us Negatively picturing the future, rather than Positively picturing it. Oh, and inciting our emotions to get the manifestation on it’s way…
yeh. well said. james redfield worked at getting that out in practical ways. thank you. funny that rumsfeld’s and other ziocon quotes after 911 came to mind – it was just a failure of imagination,… yeh right it was.
come to think of it that’s meditation is all about. and quickly one learns that the best meditation comes after attending to better diet, sleep, rest, training,…
so proof as ever what comes around goes around
now as to what tidbits of tech we’re allowed to glimpse, how can we use what little we’re given to good ends? i imagine freshly freed slaves felt a little like this as they gradually learned more about the wider world.
it seems the “coupling” also occurs naturally and can even manifest in one’s and another’s experience of reality.
Regarding the mind control aspect, it’s a line one should never cross.
moxie, Charles Tart wrote in one of his books about a man and a woman who he hypnotized so as to be able to exist in virtual ‘telepathic-communication’ with each other. The two existed in such an increasingly-bonded state that it freaked them out, and the experiment was terminated. Borg, or bliss?
Interesting concept goshawks.
It sort of confirms the notion that reality responds and that we share the field. Once one realizes such things, it implies responsibility for your own thoughts. And more so, that it has a purpose…
bottle imp scenario. careful what you wish for eh? funny that a little forethought might have made it a pleasant trip rather than scary.
When one ponders about our mind and memory not being inside our head, aka non-local, then what are these mad scientists up to. For sure the black world is doing research, but to what end, AND it costs a lot of money, so who is financing it and to what purpose?????
People change and over time their brains’ responses to stimuli change, so a brainprint would have to be kept current.
A much more interesting prospect is that telepathy might become universal via the mechanism described by Persinger in the link below, and it would make tech like “brain prints” look puny.
A similar topic was brought up by Joseph in the near past. I recall that myself and another person responded that someone or some enterprising engineering group will come up with an “anti-mind control” device to counter this. (If the PTB that are behind this brainwave identity research haven’ done so already, in order to protect themselves from becoming victims of their own nefarious mind control machines)
The “anti-mind control” would probably be some device one could carry on one’s persons, the size of a cell phone, which would block any reading or manipulation of one’s brainwaves without one’s permission.
It would be interesting to get a scientist like Dr. William A. Tiller, Ph.D. in material physics, who is a non-materialist, thoughts on all this. He’s convinced that thoughts are non-material and has double blind experiments to back it up. He’s used devices to send thoughts and intentions long distances with success. Here’s his website for those interested:
This is a bit like being shown a 2D stick figure drawing with a chorus of Oohs and Aahs when the reality is that they can already identify human brainwave patterns and regularly seek to entrain them via satellites circling the world and by objects moving inside earth’s atmosphere especially when a population is asleep.
Shades of the short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale”. Movie version “Total Recall” well our pan-ultimate power junkies wet dreams of slavery. The joke is in the end they are the real slaves for in the end anyone who wish to enslave others are themselves in the end the real slaves.
After all the human race was engineered to be precisely this: manipulated slaves. Highly plastic material baked into the cake.
Perfect for a parasitic host.
Like Little Red Riding Hood’s Big Bad Wolf…
All the better to eat you with.
In the Eastern relegions and New Age philosophies there is the very old concept that each individual has his or her own reasonant frequency. That exist in a sea of frequencies.. A la Christ’s comment “Every rock and stone will start to sing.” The brain, is after all, a very sophisticated transceiver. Therefore, to be able to identify someone based on their brain print is not that much of a strech. Now, is this crossing the barrier between science and mysticism? Possibly. We are after all, if you look at where the Break Aways and the MIC are technology wise; especially, in bio-tech/cloning land. We are definitely in the 2nd coming of Atlantis phase.
Aridzonan_13, have you heard of radionics or psychotronics? This is where specific ‘electro-machinery’ is tuned to an individual or area, and the ‘link’ is used as a conduit for making changes – for good or ill. I investigated this for a while, and it does work.
However, the ultimate ‘link-up’ mechanism seems to be in consciousness itself, not in the ‘machinery’. The machinery simply seems to be a way of holding the link once the person’s attention has moved-on to other things. In a certain manner of speaking, the machinery simply functions as the modern equivalent of a ‘spell’…
(And yes, I am sure the Break Aways and the MIC are well-aware of this ‘technology’…)
ironic? more like syncronous. i just sold a copy of richard alan miller’s “esp induction…” read it years ago and came to that same conclusion gosh. that and the idea that i don’t like the idea of working at learning how to play myself with a machine only to make myself more vulnerable to being played by someone else with a better machine.
besides, just like this kid at the link above with the autotuning on his computer, why would i want to use a machine to do for me what i can learn to do for myself. that kid on the youtube vid has a good voice. sad that he’s convinced he sucks and dependent on the autotuner. i’ve heard kids similar with a minimum of training crank out goosebumps on small crowds.
Just asking but…It seems to me one of those ideas we’re always rediscovering the ideas of Free Will and our almost infinite changeability given the choices we make (including choices of attitude). In other words any given They can predict and control our actions/identities over the short term, but over months and/or years our choices could make a substantive enough difference so that these identifications would be (to be kind) unreliable.
Until I see a realistic and definitive refutation of Free Will I’m going to have to be skeptical of the utility of brain prints.
