    Are scientist currently working on ways to make it become a reality? Also what is the thing in the brain that makes us have a mind? (I hope I phrased it well)

    for a long time scientists are always working on mind control ...except they(especially the military.) don't let anyone know...

    I didn't understand your 2nd question...
    If I'm thinking what you're thinking...it's the question being asked for many ages...
    We all know how the body was shaped, where did it come from and so forth but no one was able to explain it...perhaps no one will

    If by mind control you mean direct mental manipulation? I don't think that's quite a reality yet. But we've made decent progress in the realm of mental suggestion with drugs, mental conditioning, and as previously stated, religion.

    hmm religions and philosophies can really be mind control? how? they seem to be more like suggestions or doors that could be opened to several chances and possibilities.

    Mapping the brain is currently only in the very early stages.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRAIN_Initiative
    Brain Activity Map Project) is a proposed collaborative research initiative announced by the Obama administration on April 2, 2013, with the goal of mapping the activity of every neuron in the human brain

    Here's what they'll be mapping...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuron
    The human brain has a huge number of synapses. Each of the 10 (to the 11th power) (one hundred billion) neurons has on average 7,000 synaptic connections to other neurons. It has been estimated that the brain of a three-year-old child has about 10 (to the 15th power) synapses (1 quadrillion). This number declines with age, stabilizing by adulthood. Estimates vary for an adult, ranging from 10 (to the 14th power) to 5 x 10 (to the 14th power) synapses (100 to 500 trillion).

    No, not literal mind control. Mental conditioning.

    I read somewhere that there are more connections in the human brain than there are atoms in the as-of-now known universe. Is that true?

    I've had neither time, opportunity nor inclination to count all the atoms in the universe though here I sit at home on a Saturday night so I guess I could have started this evening.

    I think the oft-quoted thing you meant to say is that many have said that there are more connections than stars?

    If so, then...

    http://decodethemind.wordpress.com/2010/09/10/more-brain-connections-than-stars-in-the-universe-no-not-even-close/

    Neurons (rough overestimate for adults): 10^11, or 100 billion

    Synapses (based on 1000 per neuron estimate): 10^14, or 100 trillion

    Stars (estimate for observable universe): 7 x 10^22; that’s 70 sextillion


    So not as many but still pretty damned complex.

    No, it isn't
    It is estimated that there are around 10^80 atoms in the universe
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observable_universe#Matter_content

    and the number of synapses in an adult human brain are far way lower
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuron#Connectivity
    In fact a single drop of water has more number of atoms than the number of connections in our brain.

    My Information is limited, but the closest I've read of is about brainwashing camps in nazi times. Method involved periodic electric shock treatments over several months, blocking out all sound in the environment except for a tape playing of a voice telling them what to believe, occasional torture treatments etc. The result: they managed to make individuals forget completely their past and sort of reset their memories to square 1. Not really controlling actions, but they erased their memories entirely.

    Watch a few video's of Derren Brown.. he's a master of mind control
