Re: It was only a matter of time
Most of human behaviour is driven by the non-conscious parts of the
brain. This is why criminal profiling is useful, and how lie
detectors work. If we were always 100% conscious of our decisions and
actions, and had full control over them, then such behavioural
predictive measures would be useless.
I agree with your point, but what makes you think that lie detectors
work? Over here they're _forbidden_, precisely because they _don't_
work. They measure how excited/agitated you are, not whether you're lying.
