The Ethics of Imagination: The Space Between Your Ears

Abstract:
What is ethics? Currently the idea of neuronanotechnology is very different for most people. And therefore coming to an ethical consensus on what ethics in relation to neuronanotechnology might be is not a foreseeable thing. Yet, I don't think we need to look for consensus in order to look for a more ethical process of analyzing new technologies in general, and neurotechnologies in particular.

Most of what people know today about nanotechnology is based on the confabulations of a popular imagination; things in the popular press; extravagant movies; things of this nature; doomsday scenarios; AI intelligence overtaking humanity; and then decimating any sort of consciousness that resembles a human entity.
