Quantum computing gets a lot of mentions but another technological advancement may circumvent necessity of breaking keys altogether. Just lift passwords and seeds from memories.

The tech may be far away in the future but rudimentary capability already exists to detect impulses in the brain and map them to what they might be, like images vs other senses. Perhaps eventually there won’t even be a need for direct on brain probes, or even headgear of any sort – just approach the subject and download.

Some of you may have gasped at the prospect of contents of your mind becoming public. From “oh my god this stoner have not had an original thought since 1980” to “you’re one perverted sicko.” But focusing on just the topic at hand I’m not memorizing my seeds, folks. However I do have to memorize passwords to many other things including password managers containing random passwords and such.
