    Neuroweapons, war crimes and the preconscious brain

    Interesting idea. It seems as though it would be difficult to get more than targeting information this way though. thinking the word "fire" would be slightly faster than saying it, but if a fighter is primed i'm not sure it would actually be faster than pressing a button, but if under a lot of Gs or something using thoughts as the trigger might make sense.

    we are that much closer to a Firefox type scenario seeming plausible.

    if the unconscious thought becomes the weapon, how can we possibly prosecute a war crime?

    I'm not particularly cohesive at the moment, but that in particular caught my eye.
