      Hi. What do you think? ...Look:

      Telepathy is direct transference of thought from one person (sender
      or agent) to another (receiver or percipient) without using the
      usual sensory channels of communication, hence a form of
      extrasensory perception (ESP). While the existence of telepathy has
      not yet been proved, some parapsychological research studies have
      produced favorable results using such techniques as card guessing
      with a special deck of five sets of five cards. The agent may simply
      think of a random order of the five card symbols while the
      percipient tries to think of the order on which the agent is
      Telepathy in History
      Very few anecdotal accounts of telepathy have been noted in many
      ancient cultures since historical records have been kept.
      In the Bible, some prophets appear to have the ability to see into
      the future (precognition, time travel, grid travel). This seems to
      be a common claim from ancient and primitive people. But the sending
      and receiving of messages from individual to individual by mind
      alone is never mentioned at all. As with all psi phenomena, there is
      wide disagreement and controversy within the sciences, even within
      parapsychology, as to the existence of telepathy.
      Western scientific investigation of telepathy is generally
      recognized as having begun with the initial program or research of
      the Society for Psychical Research. The apex of their early
      investigations was the report published in 1886 as the two-volume
      work Phantasms of the Living.
      It was with this work that the term "telepathy" was introduced,
      replacing the earlier term "thought transference". Although much of
      the initial investigations consisted largely of gathering anecdotal
      accounts with follow-up investigations, they also conducted
      experiments with some of those who claimed telepathic abilities.
      However, their experimental protocols were not very strict by
      today's standards.
      In 1917, psychologist John E. Coover from Stanford University
      conducted a series of telepathy tests involving
      transmitting/guessing playing cards. His participants were able to
      guess the identity of cards with overall odds against chance of 160
      to 1; however, Coover did not consider the results to be significant
      enough to report this as a positive result.
      Perhaps the most well-known telepathy experiments were those of J.
      B. Rhine and his associates at Duke University, beginning in the
      1927 using the distinctive ESP Cards of Karl Zener. These involved
      more rigorous and systematic experimental protocols than those from
      the 19th century, used what were assumed to be 'average'
      participants rather than those who claimed exceptional ability, and
      used new developments in the field of statistics to evaluate
      results. Results of these and other experiments were published by
      Rhine in his popular book Extra Sensory Perception, which
      popularized the term "ESP".
      Another influential book about telepathy in its day was Mental
      Radio, published in 1930 by the Pulitzer prize-winning author Upton
      Sinclair (with foreword by Albert Einstein). In it Sinclair
      describes the apparent ability of his wife at times to reproduce
      sketches made by himself and others, even when separated by several
      miles, in apparently informal experiments that are reminiscent of
      some of those to be used by remote viewing researchers in later
      times. They note in their book that the results could also be
      explained by more general clairvoyance, and they did some
      experiments whose results suggested that in fact no sender was
      necessary, and some drawings could be reproduced precognitively.
      By the 1960s, many parapsychologists had become dissatisfied with
      the forced-choice experiments of J. B. Rhine, partly because of
      boredom on the part of test participants after many repetitions of
      monotonous card-guessing and refusing the suggestion by magicians of
      adding cards that were totally blank, partly because of the
      observed "decline effect" where the accuracy of card guessing would
      decrease over time for a given participant, which some
      parapsychologists attributed to this boredom.
      Some parapsychologists turned to free response experimental formats
      where the target was not limited to a small finite predetermined set
      of responses (e.g., Zener cards), but rather could be any sort of
      picture, drawing, photograph, movie clip, piece of music etc.
      As a result of surveys of spontaneous psi experiences which reported
      that more than half of these occurred in the dreaming state,
      researchers Montaque Ullman and Stanley Krippner at the Maimonides
      Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, undertook a series of
      experiments to test for telepathy in the dream state.
      A "receiver" participant in a soundproof, electronically shielded
      room would be monitored while sleeping for EEG patterns and rapid
      eye movements (REMs) indicating dream state.
      A "sender" in another room would then attempt to send an image,
      randomly selected from a pool of images, to the receiver by focusing
      on the image during the detected dream states. Near the end of each
      REM period, the receiver would be awakened and asked to describe
      their dream during that period. The data gathered suggested that
      sometimes the sent image was incorporated in some way into the
      content of the receiver's dreams.
      While the dream telepathy experiments results were interesting, to
      run such experiments required many resources (time, effort,
      personnel). Other researchers looked for more streamlined
      alternatives, such as the so-called ganzfeld experiments.
      To date there has not yet been any satisfactory experimental
      protocol designed to distinguish telepathy from other forms of ESP
      such as clairvoyance.There have been rare claims of shared of visual
      hallucinations in folie a deux ­ shared psychotic disorder. These are
      beyond the scope of science at this time. The phenomena cannot be
      produced or reproduced on demand.
      Telepathy and Science
      Telepathy proponents point generally to controversially scientific
      concepts such as psychology and quantum mechanics, as areas of
      research that are considered to be deeply based in the scientific
      method, but have equally problematic and unexplainable links to the
      exclusively physical description of reality.
      Quantum Mechanics
      In seeking a "scientific explanation," some telepathy proponents
      have claimed there to be connections between scientific quantum
      theory as a basis for telepathy. Such modern concepts of telepathy
      have attempted to draw both legitimacy and scientific curiosity, by
      making both general and specific analogies between the "unaccepted
      unknowns" of religion and parapsychology, and the "accepted
      unknowns" in the quantum sciences, where the classical and
      understood concepts of physics (time and space) don't generally
      apply. The clear example is in quantum mechanics and its inherently
      theoretical cousin, string theory. Both have radically changed
      modern concepts regarding the nature of time, space, energy, and
      matter, and the relationships between each.
      In general the concept is that the mind (human or otherwise) is
      simply evolved physical scaffold for an entity of electrical and
      quantum impulses. This system, in turn is claimed to have been
      developed abilities to influencing and receiving "quantum
      fluctuations" from other minds. In essence, proponents claim that
      telepathy is not "extrasensory", rather that the brain is the
      telepathic organ, its connections to other brains are not physical,
      but psychic, and the very definition of the psychic medium is the
      localized inertial frame of reference which is affected by the mind.
      This new and "scientifically-grounded" concept of telepathy provides
      the context for further speculations. However, physicists and
      skeptics state that quantum mechanics does not show classical
      effects until objects are at sub-nanometer scales, and since the
      physical components of the mind are all much larger, these quantum
      effects are considered negligible. Proponents counter that the
      scientific statements carry two flawed assumptions, namely that the
      experience of telepathy need be a classical effect, and that the
      mind is sensitive to only classical effects.
      Some physicists, such as Nick Herbert, have pondered whether or not
      quantum mechanics' "non-locality" (or "spooky action at a distance")
      principle would permit instantaneous communication such as
      telepathy. Experiments have been conducted (by scientists such as
      Gao Shen at the Institute of Quantum Physics in Beijing, China) to
      study whether or not quantum entanglements (connections allowing
      instantaneous information exchange) demonstrated at the level of
      electrons can also be verified between human minds. Such experiments
      usually include monitoring for synchronous EEG patterns between two
      hypothetically "entangled" minds.
      Technologically-assisted telepathy
      Some, for example the science-fiction writer Spider Robinson in the
      book Deathkiller, have envisioned neurological research leading to
      technologically-assisted telepathy, also called techlepathy. As of
      2004, scientists have demonstrated that brain imaging can be
      successfully used to recognise distinct thought patterns, and tell,
      for example, whether experimental monkeys thought about juice or
      water, and whether a human participant thought about a rotating cube
      or moving his paralyzed arm. Both implanted electrodes recording
      neurons' activity and outside electrodes recording electromagnetic
      activity of the brain can be used.
      Telepathic communication between humans and animals
      Some people believe that it is possible for humans and animals to
      communicate through telepathy. In the past, this type of
      interspecies communication was thought to be a normal part of life,
      such as in Native American culture. For more information on this
      subject, see books by Rupert Sheldrake (Dogs who know when their
      owners are coming home), and professional animal communicators
      Penelope Smith and Marta Williams.
      Delusions of telepathy - Schizophrenia can produce delusions that
      the sufferer is in telepathic communication with others; such
      delusions include thought broadcasting and thought extraction.
      Other Facts
      There is a long tradition of anecdotal evidence for foreseeing the
      future in dreams and by various devices such as observing the flight
      of birds or examining the entrails of sacrificial animals.
      Precognition has been tested with subjects required to predict the
      future order of cards in a deck about to be shuffled or to foretell
      results of dice throws, but the statistical support for it has
      generally been less convincing than that from experiments in
      telepathy and clairvoyance.
      Telepathy is instinctual. Primitive species used it as a survival
      mechanism. It involves mind to mind contact - communication - of one
      mind with another by means beyond the normal or ordinary - beyond
      the frequencies of the five physical senses - sight, hearing, touch,
      taste, smell.
      No all psychics are telepathic or can read minds.
      Telepathic abilities are about connecting frequency. It is like
      turning on a radio and finding the right station. You just have to
      know how to 'tune in' and the frequency of the program. For a few
      people this skill comes easy - but on the norm - telepathy is never
      developed though many people try. Different meditation techniques
      and learning to focus the mind are the key. The more you practice
      the better you get.
      Once you open the door to telepathy - it should work like a light
      switch. You can turn it off - tune off - or turn it on by focusing
      your thoughts. Rarely does one find that they are bombarded by the
      thoughts of others all the time. It would drive you crazy.
      Human DNA is not activated in a way that makes us natural telepaths -
      in most cases. We are in the third dimension - the physicalrealms -
      to experience emotions. Telepathy would make it more complicated
      than it already is. Of course no one would be able to lieanymore -
      so perhaps humanity could live in peace - but that is not why we
      come into the physical. We experience here as if in a Matrix - the
      Holodeck - a Virtual Reality game - for the drama, the emotions -
      the thrills and chills - until one day we pause thegame and say, "I
      am tired of this. I can think 'out of the box' and want those skills
      returned. Give me back my powers." It is then we go in seek of the
      tools which are innately ours.
      Dreams bring telepathic messages as we time ravel or grid travel in
      our dreams where al exists. These are called precognitive dreams. If
      they are about the 'world' rather than our personal lives, they are
      called 'collective dreams'.
      Deceased souls sometimes bring messages through dreamtime.
      Communication is by thought form using symbols. In dreams youare
      moving faster than the speed of light. This is similar to
      meditation, time travel and remote viewing. You meet up with spirits
      and share adventures and information. In dreamtime you move faster
      and higher.
      As your consciousness returns to the physical body the lower your
      get to your body - the more it slows down ...slower...and slower...
      until you enter your consciousness mind and wake up in the sluggish
      place - we call 3D. it is here that the concept of lineartime
      exists. You can best understand this by remembering that in your
      dreams - you move from event to event but time is notmarked. There
      is no time beyond 3D as frequency of light - and that is all we are -
      is moving too fast. Remember - the lower and slower the frequency -
      the less likely to achieve telepathy or other abilities that work in
      faster light. 3D appears to be as dull as it gets.
      Lovers definitely are more in tuned telepathically as being in love
      at that level is a very high frequency. This is not just about sex -
      though it is an aspect of it. Sexual activity is often telepathic in
      that one is responding to the needs of their partner on a higher
      level of expression.
      Telepathy between members of the same family - or close friends is
      common as they learn to adjust to each other's frequencies. There
      always seem to be one member of every family - usually a woman - who
      has psychic or telepathic abilities. Mother's sense when children
      are in trouble. When you are in panic mode - the adrenaline flows
      and the telepathy kicks in to those would tune in to help you.
      I woman could receive messages from her unborn child, often through
      dreams, but also telepathically.
      People often sense the death of a family member. These make the most
      dramatic stories - heightened tension, nick-of-time rescues.
      However, keep in mind that telepathic situations may be happening
      all the time, but we lack the awareness to recognize them. In times
      of crisis we sent out our message and those who are in tune will
      pick it up.
      Twins are often telepathic with each other creating these abilities
      when they are infants. they generally are in the same frequency at
      the same time and learn to communicate with words. very often it is
      just about a single thought - hunger. Telepathy between twins or
      family members can remain for a life time.

      I have friends who play telepathy games with their children -
      wherein one member will think of something and the second person has
      to guess what he is thinking about. As a rule, the rate of success
      for this type of telepathy is often higher than with those outside
      of the family. Family members who are learning challenged - often
      rely on 'higher senses' to connect with those around them.
      When you are talking about 'psychic sensitives' - they train
      themselves - or are naturally gifted to send and receive messages.
      This innate gift is based on their DNA opening at an early age.

      Pets living with a family also show a high degree of psychic
      awareness with certain family members - not necessarily the person
      who brought the pet home - but the person the pet has the karma
      with - which is why the pet came into the family in the first place.
      For the teenage readers who strongly desire this skill and that of
      telekinesis - I am sorry but do not teach by email. You need to find
      a physical teacher and someone to practice with.
      When I do a psychic reading I connect telepathically with my
      soul - which knows the true path
      spirit guides - deceased loved ones
      another aspect of their soul - existing elsewhere
      Messages are given in symbols - symbolic imagery clairvoyance or
      in 'thought form' which sounds like someone is talking to you -
      clairaudience in your mind. It what we call your 'inner voice' -
      your 'little voice' that guides you when you take the time to listen
      and believe it is not part of your thought processes.

      Almost every one of us has experienced telepathy at least once in
      his/her lifetime

      March 2005 - Pravda
      For instance, there are times when you could be doing your regular
      chores around the house and all of a sudden you hear your inner
      voice telling you to phone your friend. The moment you hear his/her
      voice on the other end of the line, the person tells you he/she was
      just thinking of phoning you. Such is a simple example of telepathy.
      Systematic research work of this phenomenon began as early as 1882
      in Britain. Researchers developed rather serious approach to solve
      the mystifying essence of telepathy. In 1926 director of Leningrad"s
      humanitarian society, professor L.L. Vasyliev published a book
      entitled "Mystic phenomena of human psyche." In it, the author
      describes several cases of the so-called spontaneous telepathy.
      Several attempts to register electromagnetic fields around a man"s
      head failed to yield any results. Vasyliev was unable to determine
      electromagnetic oscillations of live creatures due to the lack of
      ultra sensitive technology. Today, however, the existence of such
      waves has been confirmed. They do in fact exist.
      Back in the days, USSR's administration demonstrated tremendous
      interest in such phenomenon as telepathy. In mid 60s, according
      to "Komsomolskaya Pravda" (05.02.1999), a secret lab of academician
      Joseph Aideiman in USSR tried to prove scientifically the existence
      of telepathy. Ministry of Defense had initiated the formation of the
      so-called "cell #241" involving 12 men, all of whom were
      mathematicians, physicists, physiologists and doctors. Experiments
      were carried out on animals and humans alike. According to one of
      the former members of the "cell" Kirill Leontovich, there were quite
      a few impostors among those "parapsychologists."
      Nevertheless, nobody intended to refuse from advancing in their area
      of study. In order to avoid even the slightest possibility of
      imposture, they began conducting experiments while the subjects were
      far away from each other.
      Nowadays, scientists provide rather neutral accounts regarding
      telepathy. For instance, professor Natalya Bekhtereva doesn"t rule
      out the possibility that "telepathy could be one of the super-powers
      of human psyche." Another Russian physicists hypothesized
      that "telepathy could exist within short distances from the
      subjects." According to him, "biochemical and biophysical processes
      are interconnected with mental processes of the brain. They in turn
      can generate electromagnetic radiance.
      Usually, those physicists who deny the existence of telepathy end to
      claim that the radiance is way too weak and its signal is hardly
      noticeable on major distances. The fact is, however, that we refer
      to a very complex signal. Perhaps, human brain is capable of
      spotting such signals from surrounding noise. Such cases are well-
      known in radio electronics."
      Some scientists are practically certain of the fact that a mere
      thought represents a particular field, created by the
      brain: "numerous synaptic connections in human brain neurons create
      localized magnetic fields around themselves, which in turn tend to
      interact with each other thus forming a three-dimensional magnetic
      field.". Professor Okhatrin managed to calculate and create special
      device to monitor those micro-lepton fields. In his opinion,
      thoughts are formed from these very micro-leptons. These bodies can
      easily penetrate other bodies and objects, let sunshine pass right
      through them; yet, they remain invisible for the human eye.
      It is known that telepathy tends to occur between closely related
      individuals, spouses. Lab experiments also prove this fact.
