I went from zero to nothing in 0.0 seconds. World Record.

Welcome to Mondays: Theories, Postulates, and other Life Threatening Illnesses. Today's program is brought to you by the color: Q and the letter: Sand.

Language. Language is the medium in which all thoughts are communicated. It may be a written language, facial language, body language, censored language, practical and/or impractical language. Whatever it is, it's a means to a goal. Now imagine removing those means. You're left with only the goal. I am going to make a related tangent to texting. Besides the Textually Transmitted Diseases that we may contract while participating in text messaging, there lies a greater threat: miscommunication. A slight miscommunication can start a war, can scare away a love interest, or it can even cause a horrendously dangerous volcano to erupt in an urban marketplace. Let's examine what life would be like if our mode of communication was simply ideas. If ideas could transfer from brain to brain within the time frame of nothing seconds. Boundaries would not be a problem, busy signals could pack up and move to Northern Canada where other unwanted things go to be alone and co-start hot chocolate shacks that end up not doing so well.
           Imagine presenting instantaneously to a producer a screenplay that could revolutionize the world, while at the same time he is critiquing your work. This speed and accuracy of thought transfer would spin us into another age of unceasing technological advancement. The only problem that we could foresee in this circumstance would be that the human brain is small and 90% worthless. And if we were to try and use more than the allotted 10%, we would end up looking like this:

I think the phrase "textually transmitted diseases" is now one of my favorites. And idea transferring sounds like a great idea to me. It would definitely solve a lot of problems...but it might cause a few more too.

Kyle, I can only imagine what it must be like to see the world through your eyes.

@polkadotsock Would one of those problems happen to involve everyone looking like that heart-stopping monstrosity seen in the above photo?
