________________________________

Thinking Outside the "Plot"!
________________________________

~ A Question for the Members: If a disembodied brain which has been removed from a man's body can establish telepathic communication with a willing recipient, could modern medicine set up a facility which provides "rescued brains" like the one in this movie with living surrogates? Confused

~ My Theory: I think this could become a thriving industry in the future for deceased wealthy people who are willing to pay vast fortunes to have their brains preserved after the death of their bodies — so they could then inhabit the minds of impoverish volunteers.

These would be desperate people who'd actually LOVE to become the willing vessels of these rich and powerful individuals! It would allow them to live virtual "fantasy lives" as the "Rich and Famous" people whose brains controlled their bodies! Shocked

Their own weak-willed minds would be suppressed by the consciousness of the "preserved brains" who inhabited them! But they would still experience all the physical pleasures and personal ambitions of their "host" minds! Shocked

The world would end up being populated by droves of "common people" who have surrendered their bodies and minds to the powerful brains being preserved in tanks of nutrients whicn kept them alive for centuries!






(Wow, what a creepy concept. What do you guys think?)

With today's explosion of technology, I don't doubt that horrors like this are in our future.
