It is a bit strange to wrap your head around this type of thing at first, Nadine, I will admit. And I still don't 100 percent grasp how it is possible--I suppose that would only come with experiencing it first hand. But it is pretty cool and could have some good applications.

That book sounds interesting, Blac, and worth a look. This definitely is an invention that would've appeared in scifi before it made it to real life.

Actually, that quote is from Arthur C. Clarke, a master of science fiction, and was the third of his three "laws":
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clarke's_three_laws
The other two were, IMO, more interesting
    1.    When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
    2.    The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

vimalkumarp, you are welcome. Tracking down who said what can be tough, even with (or because of) Internet sources. Being a lifelong sci-fi fan, I happen to remember that one from many years ago, but checked it in Wikipedia to make sure my own memory wasn't at fault.

@Ann: To be frank i am very particular about this and i very rarely make these kinds of mistake. I had a doubt about this long ago. But somehow it got fixed in my mind that it was Alan Kay who said this. I am a big fan of Alan Kay. any way thank you very much once again for taking time to explain.

vimalkumarp, I know from your previous comments and our prior exchanges that you are very precise and 99% accurate. I'm like that, too. Perhaps because of being a reporter, though, I always check what I think are "facts." Alan Kay sure could have said that one. He's known for "The best way to predict the future is to invent it." which sounds a bit like Clarke's second law.

I have always been a big fan of great inventions but I have mixed feelings about this one. Has it been verifies to be 100% working or is it just one of those things that people usually just wish would be possible. If it is possible then what happens when this kind of technology falls into the wrong hands? If someone is able to control your actions then what is to stop them from using you to do their dirty work?I think that it is a great invention but people do not really need it that much.
