Mindreading no longer science fiction?
How many thoughts does the average human think each day, do you suppose? Estimates range between 12,357 and 60,000. No doubt that variation reflects variations in how you count thoughts - or how thoughtful someone is! Driving to work one day, I was struck by a news report on the radio. A science professor from the University of California Berkeley was talking about their latest experiments. Work has been undertaken to identify the thoughts that, though unspoken, race around inside our heads.
