‘World Wide Mind’ - Total Connectedness, and Its Consequences by Micheal Chorost

‘World Wide Mind’ - Total Connectedness, and Its Consequences - NYTimes.com:

"Imagine, Michael Chorost proposes, that four police officers on a drug raid are connected mentally in a way that allows them to sense what their colleagues are seeing and feeling. ...That scene, from his new book, 'World Wide Mind,' is an example of what Mr. Chorost sees as 'the coming integration of humanity, machines, and the Internet.” The prediction is conceptually feasible, he tells us, something that technology does not yet permit but that breaks no known physical laws.'"
