- 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
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.
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.
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.
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,
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
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
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.
