Abstract

This is a fictional story, which marries technological advances in thefield of brain computer interfacing (BCI) with the writer’s interest in music, film,sport and science fiction. It occurs in two years, at the time of the LondonOlympics. The technology mentioned in the story is either working in specialistlaboratories around the world, or indeed is under development. The aspectwhereby the BCI provides a telepathic duplex communication system betweenhumans may be plausible sometime in the future, but currently is the realms ofscience fiction. The information provided as the context to the imagined dialog istrue and can be evidenced by appropriate searching.
