University of Texas at Austin can help you with your “problematic” thoughts.

Still no internet here other than my phone, but someone mentioned the article below on Twitter and I found it interesting enough to share.

It’s good to know that with all the serious issues in the world, university researchers are spending our tax dollars on trying to solve the really important problems:

“We might be able to use this method to reduce other preexisting, yet undesired, thoughts and beliefs.”

I wonder who shall decide what constitutes “undesired” thoughts or beliefs that need reducing in others?

Even if you consider yourself a left wing liberal progressive, this little gem of sciency-goodness should cast a chill over your warm summer evening.

  1. It seems that all my lfe, someone has been proposing methods to learn while sleeping. It hasn’t worked yet. It would be nice. Languages come to mind.
    I don’t think it will work for behavior modification either. What we do as we sleep is not going to be understood anytime soon.
