This could be interesting if it is possible to develop it further.

Being able to relive moments from your past would be amazing to say the least, and might even have therapeutic and recreational uses.

I, for one, wouldn't mind reliving some choice moments in my life while I was on my death bed or something.

#1 This is not new by any means.  This was a known effect in the fifties.
#2 I have never wanted to return to either of my ex-wives or the abusive people I lived with as a kid.  I am perfectly happy where I am time wise.

Reminds me of this move, where people 'record' experiences using a device on top of their skull, bank robberies, sex, etc..and sell them to other people like recreational drugs...

They used to (and in some countries, including the US, still do) use electricity to "cure" the "mentally ill" by destroying brain tissue. How convenient that they can find area's of the brain to destroy for, oh I don't know, some kind of specific control or suppression.

Yea, count me out folks.

Underrated cyberpunk classic. The Y2K paranoia became a bit wonky, but Strange Days was a perfect reflection of the fears of the time.

Directed by Kathryn Bigelow. She's covered a lot of ground.

Let me summarize this article:

Weird shiat happens when you plant electrodes in people's brains and shoot electricity into them.  We don't know why it happens or what it means.  Maybe some day we will.

Any bets that 90 per cent of the women treated will have "flashbacks" to being sexually abused by their parents and forced to bear children which were then used as sacrifices in Satanic cults, which somehow left absolutely no physical evidence on their bodies and a five-year investigation by the local cops will reveal the nearest thing to a Satanic cult within a hundred miles of them was an all-night exorcist movie marathon at the Drive-In?

Having only read the headline (fark the dailymail) I was hoping we were getting a Hardfought movie. Bummer.
