A diminished reality experiment of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology < MIT > Has suffered a setback and 5000 people have disappeared from the face of the earth.
The diminished reality emerged decades ago associated with its antagonistic augmented reality and it´s the ability to remove information from our perception of reality.
At the moment it is used for example to remove elements of a photo a posteriori or to visualize an altered reality, with less information, through some device like glasses or a smartphone, in real time.
But the experiment Maelstrom that MIT has done this week wanted to go further by implanting a filter on an individual’s cornea and a thin layer over the neural network hippocampus, Connected to the brain.
With this, the engineers of the MIT pretend that a person, can eliminate of his sensorial perception anything of the reality, including the alive beings.
Huge success and death of success.
The Maelstrom project team moved to downtown Boston, specifically the busy BroadPath street, and there volunteer engineer George Zemeckis, with all devices activated, took a one hour The area, trying to eliminate people from their visual perception.
When returning to the meeting point with the team, he commented that it had been an absolute success and that he had not seen anyone during his walk.
The problem came hours later when thousands of families showed up at police stations reporting disappearances of their loved ones.
The police do not give in and there is a generalized chaos in the city, which has spread to the rest of the United States, forcing the White House to displace a cabinet Of crisis to the city.
The official MIT communiqué says that this should not have happened since the diminished reality only removes elements of the individual’s perception, not reality, for What they are investigating may have happened.
The latest information points to a possible quantum entanglement between Zemeckis neurons and missing individuals, having passed these to the imagination of the engineer or more likely to a Parallel dimension , connected to ours through the neural network coupled to George’s head.
Reactions of private opinion
After the unprecedented experiment in science and the subsequent scandal for the disappeared, millions of people have spoken on Twitter, including some illustrious names, Whose visions we gather below:
@donaldTrump has said he likes the idea and will donate 100 million dollars to propel the Maelstrom project in the future, if he wins the election.
@ StephenHawking believes that the 5000 people will not return anymore, as they have moved to a parallel dimension, at best and entered a black hole with epicenter in Boston, at worst.
@davidCopperfield has stated that he knows the experiment and that he himself participated in the Beta phase of the project some years ago.
@ladyAddict has commented that he intends to order one so that in his photos people do not appear behind, spoiling them.
This is all that is known at the moment. From Digital Pessimism we will continue to inform you promptly. Be careful what you want to see and what you do not want. Good afternoon.
