There is one invention that has always been desired by all, but is yet to seem likely. This is a machine/ technique to read the minds of others.
Communication would be so much more easier if there were no miscommunication. If we could read the other person’s mind, there would be no scope for any perplexity. Team work would be not the hardest but the easiest thing to achieve. There would be no chances of misunderstanding anyone, and so on and so forth.
For the understanding of those of my readers who fail to connect to anything which does not directly talk of them or their situations, no offences : think of knowing exactly how the person in front of you feels for you: friend or foe. Does he/she respect you? Do they look down to you for certain actions of yours? Wouldn’t it be so much easier to now communicate with that person.
For the others, let’s look at the broader picture, it is well known that the root of any problem is misunderstanding. This invention removes the scope for that.
Let’s now look at the other side of the coin. I pose a few questions to the customers to my invention idea, which includes me.
- Will this invention not negate the necessity or rather the existence of speech?
- Do we wish everyone around us to know what we are thinking?
- Do we REALLY want to know what exactly the other person is thinking of u?
- Right to speech may not be absolute but right to thought is, do we really wish to have to think before thinking each thought?
Personally, for the last few days, I wish such a technique had been invented and that I could know exactly what the person in front of me was thinking about me. Am I respected and liked? Or is it completely the opposite? It would be good to know. But then, do I really wish to know? I’ll have to think about that.
Also a thought is, that should anyone else matter so much as to affect my thinking of myself on the basis of his/ her thoughts of me. How much importance do others need to have in our image of ourselves, specially someone not in our immediate family? But that’s another days discussion, i guess. 🙂
You also think over it sometime.
