Good News - Bad News - Who Knows?

Scientists can map the brain to "read thoughts" & can map the tongue to engineer tastes so the brain explodes with desire & addictive behavior. Good or bad - who knows?
If reading the thoughts - phenomena interpreted by subjects & psychologists - if ever it invades the spheres of law & punishment a la the thought police or is used wirelessly like water-boarding is evil. If it is used for brain surgery & better medicine & perhaps to guide via NLP like processes a person to be able to heal themself then I would judge it good.
Anything weaponized is evil in my value judgement.
The Golden Rule always applies. The same goes for mapping the tongue & perhaps the nose for perfumes & smells.
Brainwashing would be evil in my judgment, the M$M notwithstanding!
