fMRI mind-reading of faces

The ability to decode one person's internal representation of perceptions gives rise to the possibility of re-mapping one person's representation to match someone else's. Then all that's needed is some sort of playback mechanism - a volume-filling nanotube mesh or something that would allow the appropriate pattern of stimulation, to give us real, working telepathy.

Wait we are defining Eigen-Faces now? What do I have to do to be the "X-axis" of faces?

Why aren't the squares all brown?

(ooooh, faces...)

Because it comes in all sorts of colours:
the shit on the streets of our town
come in different shades of brown
what i mean can be seen and be found
take a stroll and look down on the ground

sometimes a man can’t understand
about mother natures grand plan
what is chocolate and golden and tan
where we walk around or just stand

some has a slight reddish hue
a bright yellow is quite common too
there’s a rainbow in that residue
to be witnessed by me and by you

and out of some doggie’s behind
comes a rare an an unusual find
its that chalky white albino kind
it blows and it boggles my mind

the shit on the streets of our town
come in different shades of brown
what i mean can be seen and be found
take a stroll and look down on the ground

I love the word eigenface, despite its utter meaninglessness. You don't get through MIT without knowing what eigenfunctions are - Yale, not so much.
