     Very thought provoking and well written article. I believe that "no privacy of thought" will be all the way true at some point in human/spiritual evolution. "I think" :) the ability to read and know another's thoughts and read their corresponding emotions will be the way of the future for the the human spirit. Notwithstanding, at this point and time it is almost a necessary "protection" that we have a space for privacy for many reasons , mainly having  to do with the present "State of the human collective" in general. The one thing I would have liked to see different in the article is wrapped up in this one sentence : "If we spend our days victimized by negative energies, negative thoughts, if we yield to depression, melancholia, bitterness, these energies pollute the atmosphere." Considering the fact that in our modern world so many people, even children, communities, nations are victimized by other's thoughts of greed, lust for power and domination, revenge, superiority, violence and even sexual exploitation of all kinds, and the result being that numerous people often end up struggling from depression, mental illness and melancholia, I don't see this as a helpful statement.  Those struggling with depression for example were often  victimized as children or just early in life. PTSD for example changes the brain chemistry causing things like depression and melancholia. People living in war zones, especially children born into them, often don't have the ability to "just change their thoughts to be more positive. It's a lot more complicated than that.  Try meditating when you are starving or living in constant physical trauma towards self and/or others. What is considered  "positive" or "negative" is also  quiet relative. But if those of us on this planet, aware and able to focus our thoughts and meditation and prayers on improving our thought life with thoughts of empathy, love and integrity - while at the same time challenging every thought of war, violence, self absorption, exploitation of others etc - then we can be of help changing the world. At least that's what "I think". Namaste.

Don’t you think challenging every thought of war, violence, self-absorption, exploitation of others – might likely lead to yield to depression, melancholia, bitterness ? – just referring to the first comment. The focus on meditations,  prayers and improving our thought is also much more contagious and I believe it would yield more useful energies and outcomes on our environment. Directly challenging the status quo in the present time is very exhaustive ventures. Focus on prayers, meditation, prayers, empathy, love and integrity is more effective influence on our environment.
