Does telepathy exist?

August 5, 2007 11:51am CST
From "In conclusion, telepathy, like the other forms of psychic phenomena is elusive and difficult to test systematically. Enough evidence is available to reasonably substantiate the phenomenon does exist. But, quantifying it, seems to be another matter. The phenomenon is closely connected to the emotional states on both the sender and receiver which creates difficulty in replicating experimental results. Attitudinal factors also influence the phenomenon. The best that researchers can hope for is to have supportive and receptive subjects in experiments that produce similar results." Is there any possible way we can prove its existence, and do you think there is actually a phenomenon in which we have yet to explore?

Well, since there's no scientific explanation and no scientific evidence, I'm ready to reject its existence. There are many people who can do these tricks who deny the existence of telepathy. I just don;t think that often we realise quite how much we show with our expressions and how easily led we are by skillful people.

IMO, we need to get into a position to see. Telepathy and other psychic phenomenon seem to be there if it is needed. I mean, why on earth would our soul (for want of a better word) want to occupy itself with reading symbols on a card in another room or remote view a scene that is of no advantage to its spiritual growth? But for example, If a trauma of someone we are connected to is sufficiently intense enough to block the rational mind (the mind of illusion that bases the future on the past of which neither exists!) the real power of the Self, that is beyond rationalisation, can manifest. We know all. But to know that we know all, would take away our challenges and stunt our spiritual growth. So we have to get beyond the rational by working those "muscles"... But don't believe this... Look and see for yourself.. It's just what I'm getting.. ;-)

If you ask a group of people, chances are that some of them have had a dream where they have seen into the future. Though unaware of this, sooner or later it would have happened. I believe that telepathy in a part of the brain which is subconscious, and whether or not it exists, which I myself believe it does, people will probably never learn how to use it.

I hope so because I really want to meet someone someday that would feel and see what I feel inside their heads. I think that would be just cool in my opinion.
