Interesting information. People are already interafacing with computers.

I'm sure we will at some point. And it may not be that far away.

It makes me think of all of the Sci-Fi stories about the future and telepathy. Or even the stories of aliens being telepathic.

For the sake of the following thought, let's assume those stories have some truth behind them.
Maybe these "aliens" aren't telepathic at all, but are interfacing with powerful computers that can influence the thought patterns of those that aren't connected. Sort of a form of projection.
If that were the case, they could appear to someone and communicate with them, without ever leaving their ship.... leaving no trace of the visitation.

If I were a Sci-Fi writer, I think I'd run with that idea.

Of course the hero of the story would discover the interface and realize it was their Achilles heel.... That's if they weren't benevolent.
Ha! A little like the "Borg", but a lot less blunt.
