……. Supposing it were found that there is indeed a special pentapeptide released into the blood on the telling a lie, or some queer glycolipid in the sweat of one’s palms, or, worst of all, something chemically detectable in balloons of exhaled breath. The next thing to happen would surely be new industries in Texas and Japan for the manufacture of electronic sensing devices to be carried in one’s pocket, or perhaps worn conspicuously on one’s sleeve depending on the consumer’s particular need. Governments would become involved, sooner or later, and the lawyers and ethicists would have one field day after another. Before long we would stop speaking to each other, television would be abolished as a habitual felon, politicians would be confined to house arrest, and civilization would become to a standstill.~ Page 130
