	You may be getting a bit ahead of technology when you talk about brain
	to brain contact.  To use an analogy, think of a tape recorder.  Erasing
	is easy; no real knowledge involved there.  To read is harder, and to
	write is harder still.  The experiments with selecting letters is not 
	yet at the "Think of A, Computer writes A" stage.  It is more along
	the lines of a person thinking in one way to get a computer to move a
	pointer to a letter, then selecting the letter.  Last I heard, anyway.
