Muntlinational Nooscope

  [vote for,

a single state Nooscope will fail because of the inherent bias of the engineers it is important that this become a multinational effort if anyone is to reap results from it. Perhaps some day the Nooscope may serve as an group sense serve that will give macro view of another countries feelings so work can be altered accordingly.+ world peace!?

       I think the US would do well to develop its own instrument, to determine the likely consequences of electing Trump. It would be called the Ohnoscope.

       The data from the nooscope will probably be censored especially if throws up information that is hard to take. Nobody likes having their faults pointed out.

       Muntlinational: munt-lee-na-shun-al. (n), somone known internationally to be a complete dick. See also a. Donald Trump or b. government of Russia, where I hear from the Ministry of Truth that the production of boots is on the rise.

       Can a nooscope be used to determine what something is not?

       [bungston] Mmmm.... determine, recognise,match. By matching anything else, the nooscope would partially match not something. If every match try had a bingo line, their tries could be relinquished. Of course the sky is the limit for how many other searches need to be 'negated'.   

       My imagining of the brain reckons it works slightly differently. It is pattern flow rather than match. The neurons have paths that accept passed patterns. The waves in the river determin the water going left or right in the fork. It's all semantic turbulence.

       Actually, it's chaotic (in the mathematical sense)

       Could a mammalian cell register the subtle effects of consciousness. I doubt it. It would need a data window on the outside of the body.   

       Weather may have another dimension but we'll have to do some very fancy tricks to sample that data.
