Technology is already in development to allow a user to take their own EEG scans on their mobile devices. What if an app was developed that could allow interactive narratives for children to be written in response to a child's brain activity?
The parent might be able to set targets for the type of brain developments that they wish their child to undergo and the program would construct narratives taking the child's responses, the parent's targets and a database of neurological understanding?
Is this too much control over what is an ancient and natural process of a child's understanding of the world developing through their interactions with fictions in play and stories? If the results and activity could be uploaded and compared with other data, would the competitive edge of parenting over take the desire to allow a child's own self-discovery? What is the value of and who is the author in such a context?
