    Imagine walking into a store one day (Chips R Us?) and being able to shop for your own spiritual/mystical experience brain chip. A whole array of microchips offering experiences ranging from buddhist nirvana to out of body experiences. The hunger for a return to the spirtual basis of human consciousness would be well stoked by then due to the demise of traditional religion. People would probably be willing to pay thousands just for a few hours in a transcendental state. Tastes ofcourse would vary. Conjugation with the Goddess herself. Or half a day spent in Elysian Fields.

    For a little more you could even have your spiritual package customized for you. Past life regressions based on the activation of subconscious personality patterns. Premium gnostic apotheosis package complete with lucid dream bonus level! Imagine the possibilities open to us with an electronically-enhanced soul. What heights might we NOT aspire to? What esoteric mysteries of metaphysical truth would unfold before us, providing us the ultimate escape from our mundane little lives?

    Only if you don't mind dancing a jig on the corpse of your murdered lover! Which Goddess did you have in mind?

    What kind of experiences have you had? I tried LSD once and just saw light streamers everywhere.

    No...I wish to be the Greek goddess Eirene...the goddess of peace and diplomacy. And I would sprinkle endless amounts of pixie dust upon all of my devout followers....weeeee!

    Aphrodite would make a good second choice.

    Bin done. Alastair Reynolds in his 'Revelation Space' series has belief viruses. Also modulated magnetic fields applied to the temporal lobes can induce religious fervour. I even invented the SUBTLE bomb (Synchronous Unipolar Burst Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), a microwave weapon that causes the enemy to invent a new faith. Could go either way though.

    I was playing the newer shadowrun games on android and pc recently,dragonfall and shadrowrun returns etc and reliving nostalgia and this reminds me of BTL better than life chip in shadowrun

    A "Better Than Life" chip (also called "DreamChips"). An illegal cyber-data chip which provides the user a combination of artificial reality coupled with direct stimulation of different centers of the brain. Though typically designed to provide a pre-programmed fantasy, the artificial reality need not be coherent, i.e. it can provide a totally hallucinatory environment. Chips are typically designed to burn out after one use, both to prevent the users brain from overloading from the sustained stimulation, and to force the user to purchase additional chips. BTL chips are psychologically addictive and repeated, frequent use causes permanent brain damage.
