The Cutting Edge of Mind Control: Pupillometry

Big brother is here, and he has some shocking new technologies up his sleeve that give him unprecedented access to your thoughts, feelings and intentions. Mind control is more sophisticated than ever, and you may not even be aware that your eyes are giving high-tech intruders access to your mind.

Biometrics is the use of technology to measure human characteristics and traits, and at the cutting edge of biometrics is pupillometry, the science of using measurements of the pupil of the human eye to make psychological predictions and gather predictive intelligence.

It has been recognized since the early 1900’s that pupil size changes with emotional state and brain activity, and since the 1950’s and ’60’s, there have been numerous experiments in using measurements of the pupil to determine a psychological link to a behavior.

Most notoriously, the government of Canada used a ‘fruit machine‘ to determine if members of law enforcement were homosexuals by seeing if their pupils reacted to pornographic images.  

A Window to the Preconscious

Pupils react to many different stimuli including lightness and darkness, intoxication, excitement, neurological condition, cognitive effort, and so on, and they’re movements are incredibly precise. Scientists can detect and measure things like sleepiness, emotional state, sexual interest, race bias, moral judgments, schizophrenia, memory, attention, depression and even autism.

Science has also discovered that the harder you are working to solve a problem, the increasingly dilated your pupils will become, and nurses have even been able to read the pupils of paralyzed patients to determine if their intention is ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in response to important questions.

Much like a computer that displays a performance bar when heavy processing is underway, measuring pupillary responses can see what kind of processing load the mind is engaged in.
