Tik-Tok is going to get Big Tech in trouble. Let me give you an example.
Recently, I came out of the shower and looked on the floor. I saw how wet the floor was and thought about how I didn’t want to get my feet wet.
I did not tell anyone this. I didn’t write a blog post, text any one, nothing. The concept’s sole existence was in my mind.
Within moments, I looked at my Tik-Tok For You Page and, surprise, what video do I see, but one about to keep your bathroom floor from getting wet when you take a shower.
This type of thing happens so often with Tik-Tok that they have to be reading my — and millions of other people’s — mind.
If Tik-Tok has this technology, then Facebook and Google do, too. (Facebook has a patent on such technology, by the way.) And it’s possible that was why Tik-Tok was so bent out of shape about giving its algorithm to any new American owner — they were worried their extremely good, extremely intrusive Digital Telepathy technology would fall into the hands of the Americans.
So, I suspect China’s government is using Tik-Tok to read American minds.
