How we can have our pets speak - let's look at advances in neuroscience that can highly likely lead us to a position of being able to develop speech in any creature having brains.

What happens in the brain when we hear something? Researchers took a patient who plays a piano well and recorded his brain activity when playing.

Then they turned the sound off and the same was done once again: this time the sound existed only in the brain. The striking results may suggest a way of developing a certain area in the brain that can compose music. And then a human - or any other creature with brains - can play the music by using mental power only. The sound of the music can be scanned or read from the brain directly - and music can be played out loud, in the form of sound waves and be heard by others.

Another way of advancing this result is to try to develop certain areas of the brain to reflect ideas we usualy express through words, that is speech. And then process the sound generated in the brain in a similar way - convert or translate the activity into sound that can be heard.

It is worth working in this direction to make a device that is able of reading brain activity in a creature and translate it straightaway into speech understandable by others.

Actually we might want to have this kind of reader-translator as we want to please all people keeping whatever pet they keep - dogs, cats, parrots, snakes, lizards, tortoises, even fish!

The goal at that is to make owners of pets even happier by enabling their pets with ability to sing songs, speak and have conversations.

Lets get back to the study which however was done on humans.

First, the participant played two piano pieces on an electronic piano with the sound volume of the digital keyboard on. Second, the participant replayed the same piano pieces, but without auditory feedback, and the participant was asked to imagine hearing the music in his mind. The result is similarities between perception and imagery was found.

The experiment done was a pretty simple one. Of our interest are ways to advance it.

The first thing we need to do is to determine what makes the two conditions different. That is to determine different mechanisms in the brain that are involved in a) generating music that is imaginary, unheard and b) actual hearing the sound in physical form. We are going to support this research and get involved in it many different teams.

The original paper is called "Neural Encoding of Auditory Features during Music Perception and Imagery: Insight into the Brain of a Piano Player". In terms of authors this research task is laid out this way:

"It remains unclear how the human cortex represents spectrotemporal sound features during auditory imagery, and how this representation compares to auditory perception.

This is the first turning point for further research.

The second is to replace recording electrocorticographic signals from electrodes in the brain with more suitable non-invasive technique to move towards developing devices for mass user, ones doing scanning and translation.

And the third turning point in research work to be done. We first focus on music, on auditory information that is reperesented by high and low frequency sounds. In more advanced research we are going to work on linguistic information, on its representation in the brain and ways to scan and translate it to be able to recreate it to be heard.

First of all, let me ask you a question. Why do most people not live in a presidential way?


I daresay most perhaps lack imagination, not money. Now let me defend the point made. And let me put this in this way: we perhaps have to gather developers, ambitious ones, and create a brain network, a mass one, to have people plugged in so that they see directly in their mind all those things modern technology can deliver and make affordable to everyone.


Building a network where people’s minds, not computers, are linked up to each other is a step in the direction developers’ ambitions may be satisfied with, as this is a step into a future where we want to have abilities to construct the world around us by effort of mind.


As we all live in times when the whole of humanity is going to move house and settle in outer space – to live in Orbital Trains – we can use the power of thought to present people a way of life everybody can afford in space before long most visually.


Building Space Trains around the Globe shall go along with creating a brain network for all.


Look! Have a look at a car across the street. And ask yourself: what held back people who lived a hundred years ago from having such a car? Lack of imagination? Or lack of money?


Things undreamt-of a century ago are ubiquitous today, everyone can afford them. And they are not even looked upon as luxury. Just things to live.


If we are to survive as the human race and make outer space our home, we have got a goal to let people – everyone – see how they can have in the near future things unthinkable today. And the best way to deliver them rich life is to let them have a new kind of mindset, one where you are god . But what is it that’ll bring about this?


Building mass brain network, connecting minds of people through it, and advancing technologies to read, send, receive and share thoughts is thus a means of reaching a better life for billions. A life even presidents can’t dream of, have and afford now that they don’t use the power of imagination at full. None of the rich has had in his imagination an idea of building a network like this, a space where you are at the center of universe you create by yourself.


But what we want above all is to let ordinary people see in their minds a vast range of opportunities to improve their lives, and setting their minds to what they see suit them better, get moving ahead to have it in their possession.


Building up such a network is not an easy thing to do, and is going to be a real feat even for a best team of developers with ambitions. The objective able to satisfy our ambitions and the objective achievable if we pull together.


So the first thing to do is to rethink what is valuable. Let everybody answer the question to himself: what makes things so valuable? And the task of our team is to build a brain network so that people who are signed in can see in their mind a world full of opportunities.


And the first thing people are going to see is a way of life they have dreamed and deserve. A way of life in Orbital Trains – a way of life at the next level of human evolution if it happens to come – can only be feasible if advances in technologies have been made to create living room over there in outer space.


We cannot make people want to set off for Space through linking up to their minds using the network to come.


But what we can do is present all advances in technologies merged into a whole to give birth to an absolutely new, fresh and unthinkable-of before lifestyle and create an absolutely new thing of new value.


So if we set creating a brain network for billions a priority and pull together we’re made.

Again, we can’t make people want to leave for space, but through connected minds we can prompt the process of sharing thoughts so as to wake people’s imagination.


Through direct mind vision people will see themselves rich and prosperous, they’ll see all those truly valuable stuffs they want to have. And in this precisely way we, developers of new lifestyle, will come to know what there is the demand for.


We will come to know what things people want to have, how they see they are going to use them. We’ ll see unprecedented opportunities to brighten up lives of everyone knowing what he or she is up for. Let’s talk about this invaluable knowledge. There’s plenty of it to come. Much more than men could ever express in words, gestures, drawing pictures or using other means they used to, other than pure mental activity and direct interaction between minds. We will need more advanced ways of sorting these mountains of knowledge out. How do we go about it?


One way of doing well here is thinking about what people as a race will need as a species destined to live in space and enjoy having got to the next level in its evolution. And the point is: to create a mass market for all those people of space cars for them – and with that getting around to having Orbital Trains, these space homes for billions, long trains of them around the Earth, - we need to have got an unimaginable lot of things. There are plenty, a huge multiplicity of things. The number is so incredibly high it is impossible to go about their design and manufacturing through any conventional means we used to at the present time level.


Living in space and enjoy having new living space will require lots of absolutely new things interacting with people and each other in innumerate ways to add difficulty to design, developing and planning. To this end, for developers and makers  to manage the process of creating these products people are really going to need, enjoy and appreciate it will be imperative to have a brain network and have staff in it.


On the other hand, customers have to speed up their wanting and longing for things, their passing from one desire to another, having the desires understood in unmistakable way – and along with that they have to see how they can actually get these things.


Through getting plugged into a brain network people will be able to think over their needs and demand for as many things and at as high speed as have not been possible ever before. Then they can send their thoughts of things they have this way mentally modeled – again at ever increasing rate allowing refining desires, - and see – again in their minds – how the process of actual making and delivering is getting along. What our customers need are highly customized and personalized things the way in which they – lots of them – are going to improve lives not even being able to be fully understood through any means used to.


The brain network will connect two parts, customers and producers which is one way of thinking of what it does, a way used to.


It  will make dreaming of valuable things and lifestyle more efficient, in more precise terms with encompassing a more vast range of things. It will enable people with artificial imagination and there will emerge new markets with a variety of providers of brainpieces, brain networking devices and sevices and whatever it takes to do well in a world where brain power matters. Which is yet another way of thinking of it in terms used to. Brain network goes beyond it and the only way to realize how it is going to be part of our life is to be part of it. Creating it is not only about advancing technology but also letting humanity live on. It is also about having an individual - every one of us - developing.


Our developers face an unprecedented challenge. The challenge is to create something so valuable as to make up for lack of imagination in most of us and make most people part of a new world of rich opportunities for everyone never seen before.


If you are some one wanting to join the community of developers facing most impossible challenge, join us! Much more is to come.
