What if everybody’s brains were connected somehow? Like nodes on a block-chain network. Would everybody know everything? If so, it would be impossible to truly be ignorant… but could you still chose to be? What if our brains didn’t only share technical information, but what if other functions of the brain were shared as well. Emotions? Physical pain? Pleasure?
What if emotions could be shared? What if when you insult someone online, you could feel how they feel? What if someone halfway across the world loses a loved one to a natural disaster, would you feel their angst? Would this be true empathy? How would that affect humanity?
What would society be like if you physically could not ignore scientific fact? Would that be a good thing or a bad thing?
