“The Vagueness Machine” / Memorable Fancies #1119

     Science, NPR tells us, has invented a vagueness machine that you can wear comfortably on your belt. Inconspicuous wires lead to the back of your head, and then through tiny custom-drilled holes in your skull and into your brain. The vagueness machine produces blurs: not visual, but conceptual. Early adopters report confused thoughts, ambiguous desires.

   The first few users complained of some discomfort, but weren’t able to tell physicians quite where it hurt.

     Demand, NPR says, may be building rapidly, but no one is really sure.
