So my wife is watching Beneath the Planet of the Apes and Victor Buono is telepathically bossing Charlton Heston around. Charlton Heston hears Victor Buono’s thoughts, Victor Buono can hear Charlton Heston’s thoughts. Victor Buono makes a Bette Davis joke, Charlton Heston god damns him all to hell. Then I see this story in Huffington Post…People Talk Brain to Brain For the First Time Ever. “We were able to directly and non-invasively transmit a thought from one person to another, without them having to speak or write,” said Dr. Alvaro Pascual-Leone. Apparently a brain in India thought “Hola” to a brain in France, and the brain in France thought “Ciao” right back at him. One of those Watson, my friend, I need you kind of things. Pretty cool. And so Beneath the Planet of the Apes is real. Or the telepathy part is anyway, though maybe not the silly costumes. The future is already here, apparently with or without Roddy McDowell in an ape suit. Though that was another movie..
