"Deep image reconstruction from human brain activity"

Yes that's what it sounds like - image reconstruction from brain scans. Scroll to the images and be amazed and/or terrified.

So what does this lead us to? Being able to record and watch dreams? Or thought police? Why not both?

I was just thinking "that's not how memories work". Especially with how it was supposedly used at the end. Again, there were definite similarities with "The Entire History of You" with the rewatching of memories.

The thought police will have a hard time reading my thoughts, I haven't had a clear thought in decades.

Joking aside this is pretty big, I wouldn't think we would have to worry about nefarious government agencies checking we are thinking according to party line.
