When Hurricane Florence slowed to a Category 1, people breathed a sigh of relief in hopes that the damage would not be as great as had been originally feared. People scoffed, “It’s ONLY a Category 1. We’ve seen worse before.”

Feeding knowledge directly into your brain, just like in sci-fi classic The Matrix, could soon take as much effort as falling asleep, scientists believe.

They believe it could be the first steps in developing advanced software that will make Matrix-style instant learning a reality.
