TORONTO, April 1, 2012 /CNW/ - There has been quite a bit of hoopla of late with the release of studies demonstrating that an MRI can be used to read thoughts. However, it now appears that such possibilities existed in the first half of the last century and were significant contributors to the development of Sigmund Freud's Oedipus Complex theories.
In the past, it was thought that Freud initially developed his psychoanalytic theories based on self-reflection and his experience treating a series of patients. However, the existence of the "Freudoscope", a mind reading device that was deployed by Freud to gain insight into the thoughts of his patients, both their conscious and unconscious thoughts, has recently been discovered.
Bezpala Brown Gallery (BBG) has been fortunate to obtain the Freudoscope, discovered by Oleg Lipchenko, which will be on display beginning April 5th . This discovery will undoubtedly rock the psychoanalytic community as they now must reassess their opinions on Freudian psychology with the knowledge that he had a secret weapon.
BBG will be hosting an opening reception to an exhibition focusing on Freud, entitled Freudoscope, April 5th beginning at 6 pm. Patrons wishing to read the minds of friends and enemies should arrive early as it is expected that a significant queue will form for the curious who wish to test out the device.
BBG is conveniently located at 17 Church Street, just one block east of St. Lawrence Market, steps below Front Street.
