What most people don’t realize about technology is that there is an upside, and a downside, to every piece of modern advancement. Yes, it would be nice to know what a man you’re dating is really thinking when he’s taking you out, but you have to draw the line at being able to read the minds of every single person you come into contact with.

Frankly, the noise would drive you crazy. But Listening dares to ask the question: what would happen if, indeed, you could hear what every single person was really thinking? And how could you manipulate the technology to do what it was you wanted it to do when you wanted it to do it? Could you, in fact, threaten the future of free will itself? (Spoiler alert: yes)
