What if it were possible to literally take pictures of the mind's eye? There is no doubt that if such an ability existed it would completely transform everything from how we communicate across language barriers, save our memories, replay our dreams, how we communicate with ourselves (psychology), how we communicate with computers (HCI), and on and on the list goes. The evidence is now on the horizon that taking these pictures is in fact possible and could be made within the decade.
