I’ve read some of Sony’s patents of the type mentioned here. They’re such hilarious bullshit. They amount to, “Some day, some technology will exist that allows direct manipulation of the brain. Our idea is to use it for games.” Pure patent trolling, although it would get tossed pretty fast given all the prior art that must exist.

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one thing to you. Just one thing.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: Tin foil hats.
Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?
Mr. McGuire: There's a great future in tin foil hats. Think about it. Will you think about it?

Embarrassment and horror.

I don’t want to know everything that goes though my spouse’s and friends’ minds unfiltered. I also don’t need them knowing everything I’ve ever thought.

What makes me myself is being able to filter every stupid-ass thought programmed into myself by society and the systems that pervade it.
