Acoustic processors analyze vocal patterns, for example, and by Fourier transform continuously synthesize spectral time samples which can be kicked out by the hundreds every second, correlated with stored prototypes in the processor and decoded to probable sentence-patterns. Since the human brain can process 5,000 bits of information per second, the capacity of current market computers to perform hundreds of millions of calculations a second through injection logic circuits easily explains how the subject’s actions and ideas may be anticipated through analysis of preverbal thinking. It explains as well how computer response programs modulated to typed vocal patterns can produce the effect of voices discharging in one’s brain as if in answer to thoughts, actions or ideas not yet clearly formulated in the mind of the subject (since the computerized vocal-patterns bypass auditory circuitry and resonate the brainlobes directly, no detection of mechanical artifice arises; the brain directly interprets the signal as human speech-pattern without tinny resonance, robotic diction etc.).

To take it a step further the more that we are able to make experiences richer with music and scenery and the congruence of these two abstract but powerful values, the more impact certain moments can have and the more meaningful memories can be.

For applications outside academia, co-author Katsumi Watanabe from Waseda University and the University of Tokyo in Japan considers that the platform could be used for therapeutic purposes, for example for mood disorders by inducing positive attitude change from retelling affective memories or by redescribing emotionally laden events in a modified tone of voice. It might also be possible to enhance the emotional impact of Karaoke or live singing performances, or maybe to alter the emotional atmosphere of conversations in online meetings and gaming.
