It seems to me we’re already there. Take away the thick cables and death, and humans already do this to other humans.

It’s still physical access though. Media isn’t passive:
Example: Arms of an Angel TV commercial. Through music and images it changes our brain chemistry and we empathize and feel bad about animals and want to pay money to make that pain go away.

I don’t think direct brain access will necessary be even noticeable though. Think about how we use someone else’s brainspace now: We put an idea in their heads. They think about it. They get enthusiastic about it. They get mad about it.

Their reactions are the output.
