Hypnosis at its Best

Mind control is something people never seem to take seriously. Being "mind controlled" is something that would come straight out a movie scene. That part of the movie is now becoming a reality. It is a scary thought that the one thing that any human can control, its own mind, can be tampered with. I find it interesting that technology has come this far. However, the question I am worried about is how far should it really go?
In my opinion, it is perfectly fine to be advancing technology but to put someone in control of your body, that's where the line it crosses the line. Just imagine having the center of your being controlled by someone else. If this new technology would fall into the wrong hands, there would a serious problem. Also, I think it is ethically wrong for someone to want to control another person's mind. The mind is where stems the morals and values we have and having them meddled with can be detrimental to a society. On the other hand, mind control can in fact be beneficial to one's health. For example, people who cannot move their bodies themselves would be able to if someone took over their mind. Further research can eventually lead to this kind of "cure". It would be a breakthrough in the medical field and could potentially save many lives from being ruined by such diseases.
It is a interesting research and the results can and will be dangerous if it succeeds. For the sake of humanity, let's just hope that if it does succeed, it does not fall within the wrong hands.
The question that now needs to be answered is: would you let someone take control over your mind? Even for a experiment?
