Wow. I'm slightly concerned about being able to trigger this with flashes of light.

Certainly that is an over simplification of optogenetics, buy it has scary implications.

It would appear to require still altering the subject at least. Imagine when such methods move beyond that. That is, being able to externally trigger such things, with benign acts/stimuli like light.

Dang! And to think about how we had strobe lights in our band back in the last century. We were so unenlightened.



Haha, I made a pun. Oh, Magoo, you've done it again.
