Here is what I have noticed from my experience. There is an unbelievably massive problem in the world. Blindness. Read this, what I think is part of the life experience of the unskilled: People who suffer from blindness are relegated to the superfluous. They struggle to really learn anything. Also these people can operate with next to no foresight which can cause various sets of crisis over one's lifetime... imagine being totally oblivious to the actual fact that one is inside crisis. Now imagine that an overwhelming proportion of the population is inside this category. Are you going to let this continue? Here, the answer I found to help solve this: http://www.technologyreview.com/Biotech/19767/ What I noticed: After reading this you might notice that 35 researchers were working on this and the information was built up gradually. Imagine many more researchers devoted to this task. We would have a speed similar to the Human Genome Project which was completed in 15 years. Competition, due to Craig Venter helped there to speed up progress. Imagine setting up a similar race except with neuroscience. We could set these people free within their lifetime! Now these people can learn from experience and can face new problems by themselves. So if you are in any position of authority or are lucky enough to be listened to, shout and spread the word. Lobby people in power, people in science and help end this undeserved life experience for good.
