Yea, that's exactly what the zombie masters want you to get. An easy-open hatch to the BRAAAAAAIIIIIINS!

So now, if someone says "I have a crystal skull", they might be talking about their own head?

You don't need to tell me what on your mind, I can see for myself.

Looks like Naegleria fowleri to me.

Dr William Beaumont shrugs, goes back to monitoring digestion in 1822.

The Time Life Science series covered this in the 60s in their book on the mind. Pics are NSFL for the queasy, so I'll leave you to your own medical research gore acquisition methods.

Would not simply evolving until a body is no longer needed to house the brain more efficient?

Yttria-stabilized zirconia? Is  that anything like transparent aluminum?

If the idea is to do it through the glass, wouldn't even the tiniest imperfection or blur, or even the curvature of the glass cause the laser to be off, and fark up your brain?

If the idea is to have the implant open for surgeries, wouldn't it not need to be see-through?

I think that they could correct for any imperfections in the glass fairly easily, as the window won't give direct views of the brain. The window replaces bone from the skull, but the Dura, Arachoid, and Pia Matter (whatever they are) still block a line of sight to the brain, and the laser only needs a window because the skull is too thick to allow manipulation through it.
