transcranial Oscillating Current Stimulation of mothers brain readout via blanket

Sensors on the mother, tOCS device, to mimic mother being and thinking in close proximity of infant. The tOCS would be by a electrode laden hooded blanket and receiving and modulation device.

Of course, being without scientific investigate and having a lot of large jump extrapolation, this product is only thought to give an electromagnetic parental comfort shaddow to the child.

But still, possibly the ultimate in cute, ahhh, electrified security.

A stepping stone suddenly surfaced, tDCS_20infant_20one..._20and_20cleverness
with a few bubbly ripples. I'll use it to step forward with my full weight. [wjt, Feb 01 2018, last modified Feb 02 2018]

       Can it also include an electric fence for the top rail of the crib?

       Yes, although at random intervals so no behavior is given unfair re-enforcement.

       If you want to give unfair reinforcement to, specifically, no behaviour, surely something that kills the behaver would result in preferential no behaviour at all, and hence, have dominant reinforcement. I’m not sure how you’d randomise it, my guess would be that it would be such an unfair dominant strategy — that of no behaviour at all, once it achieves dominant equilibrium — that it would act as an asymptote and clamp to only no behaviour, not allowing other forms of behaviour to occur thereafter.

       Random electrocutions would tend to lead to the phenomenon of Learned Helplessness, which is a seriously nasty thing to do to anyone.

       Ah yes, thanks for reminding me. Nothing like a good imaginary ceiling on achievement and ambition.

       In reality the cot with the random electrification rail( always non lethal,just annoying), the child has one behavior, getting out of the cot. Just like life and desktop cold fusion, sometimes you can, mostly you can't. Helplessness is when you don't have that window of can.

       I didn’t realise you could even get cans in a window. Is that a new way of packaging cans?

       I think it has something to do with Andy Warhol.
