July 23 Mind Wars Recap & October 2 Future of The Lowline Announcement

If you missed our July 23 meetup with Jonathan Moreno, here are highlights:

  • Best traits for Beating a Lie Detector: Stupidity, Delusions of Grandeur or Mental Illness
  • As we extend the battlezone to thousands of miles away with drones and other remote technology, do we expose the US mainland to more retaliation?
  • Considerations for Ethical Principles:  Cognitive Liberty, Reversability, International Law
  • Roborat Video – Wirelessly Guided Brain – are humans a future possibility?: 
  • Samsung’s Robo Soldier – tested near the Korean Demilitarized Zone - How much autonomy do we give up in our defense systems?

  • Best Solutions for Cognitive Enhancement: Sleep and eat well!
  • Oxytocin as an inhalable spray could build trust in interrogations – currently illegal under chemical weapons convention. Is it any more ethical than waterboarding?
  • Compelling mind control clips from the original Manchurian Candidate movie.
  • Video and photos from this meetup will be posted soon.


Our next meetup is tentatively scheduled for October 2 to learn about The Future of The Lowline from its founders. Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have worked tenaciously to transform a long abandoned underground Lower East Side train yard into an extraordinary public space.  Using specially created mirrors to channel in and amplify natural sunlight, their creation will also depend on strong public/private partnerships.  If you’re a fan innovative architecture, design, technology or development, you’ll want to hear how they are making it happen and get a glimpse of their futurist vision:

We are also developing Fall/Winter programs on the Share Economy and The Ocean.
