Ethics of memory manipulation and the plausibility of the technology.
Since our body is capable of learning and mastering skills is it logical to say that a change occured in our body? Is it reasonable to assume that there was a change in your mind that is responsable for this? In a lot of movies (The matrix, Inception) memory "implants" are depicted where a person can instantly learn something. In the past many inventions were first depicted in works of fiction.
If technology were able to manipulate the way the human mind learns and stores information would we be able to instantly know everything? How would this change society? Would life suddenly become a lot less valuable? Would life be more or less interesting? How would we judge anyones usefulness when compared to another? Could the world function if this technology were real? Do you think that this technology is able to be invented?
