Starting with lab animals, develop a method of introducing
bargaining into voltage shock training. So, if the rat turns down the
wrong hallway in a maze, he will immediately feel a very low level
of electro-shock, that is not uncomfortable but will alert him that
the game is on. Then, on his
Google Glasses, some kind of exchange
system will pop up visually, in which he can trade, with gaze
recognition, virtual food for going back in the right direction. This
will work together with time, over which the level of electric shock
will slowly increase, and distance from the right path, which will
increase the level of shock. I don't know, something like that. You
figure it out science guys. I just think that choice and bargaining
should be introduced into electro shock training.
||I think they've tried this with college students.
||This approach has been used in the UK for some
time to produce Britain's Got Talent.
The electric shock continues until the
subject bargains for it to stop? The point of electric
shock training is to create a deterrent that
conditions the subject to avoid an unrelated object
or action in the future by providing a brief corrective
jolt in response to an undesired choice. Continuing to
induce pain until the subject complies with your
demands is nothing more than torture.
||If we can convince mice of the misery of existence, we're on our way to bringing about the first mouse Emil Cioran, which must be worth something. All we need to do after that is to teach them to communicate with us.
