Trope a Day: Hive Mind

Hive Mind: While anyone with a BCI can communicate “telepathically” with others it isn’t true thought-sharing, anymore than a phone call or text message is.  Because everyone has a differently-shaped brain the sharing of actual thoughts or memories runs into firmware incompatibility issues.  It is possible to translate the thoughts of one person into a format that another can view but the emulation software has to be customized to each pair of users.

Thus far, the only way to create a “hive mind” or any sort is with a group of bioprinted clones with brains shaped from the ground up to be all but identical to the original.
