Thoughts Have Wings

Telepathy is real. Thoughts have wings. Of this I am certain. It is a shame that telepathy, direct mind-to-mind interactionindependent of the known senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch, balance, and so on), is still shunned and mocked bymany people. This despite the extensive studies of telepathy, precognition, and similar mental phenomena, carried out formore than a century by some of the best minds, including Ph.D. scientists and Nobel laureates.

The basic phenomena of telepathy have been demonstrated over and over again, and even put topractical use. A vast scientific literature on parapsychology (which encompasses the study of telepathy) exists, with specialised journals and societies.

There is strong laboratory evidence for telepathy, from classic card-calling studies to controlledexperiments where an agent inserts material telepathically into a subject’s dreams, through moresophisticated tests for telepathic information transfer in the fully conscious state or at the threshold of consciousness between sleep and waking (hypnagogia).A large and compelling body of evidence from spontaneous cases supports the reality of telepathy,such as crisis events when a person has telepathic awareness, or even “sees” an apparition, of a lovedone experiencing emotional turmoil, pain, suffering, or death. Telepathy and relatedparapsychological phenomena have been successfully applied to intelligence gathering. Jimmy Carter,39
th
President of the United States (1977-1981), testified to their efficacy.The proven results of these exchanges between our intelligence services and parapsychologistsraise some of the most intriguing and unanswerable questions of my presidency… They defylogic, but the facts are undeniable.

Recently Dr. Daryl J. Bem of Cornell University released the results of nine experiments, involvingover a thousand participants, documenting consistently significant positive results for precognitionand retroactive influences, important components of parapsychology.

Despite the overwhelmingevidence for telepathy and related phenomena, many scientists do not consider parapsychology ascience and, knowing nothing about the subject, feel free to make disparaging statements concerningthe field and its practitioners.At this point I believe it is time to move beyond assuaging the debunkers and scoffers, for no amountof evidence will ever convince some that telepathy is genuine. Let us concentrate on studying thephenomena and unravelling the secrets of telepathy. Thoughts may have wings, but how far can theyfly?Telepathy is often considered independent of distance; that is, thoughts are free to fly as far as theydesire. But, is this really the case? There are well-attested instances of telepathy occurring overthousands of kilometres, but to conclude that all telepathy is literally independent of distance ispremature. It is extremely difficult to measure the strength of a telepathic signal apart from thedelivery of the message (in analogy, an audible message may be received across a room whetheryelled or whispered).A few controlled studies indicate that at least sometimes telepathy may attenuate with distance.

 Attenuation might be expected unless perhaps telepathy is a nonlocal quantum mechanicalphenomenon. Possibly there are multiple forms of telepathy: information carried on extremely lowfrequency electromagnetic waves, information transferred by quantum mechanical means, andinformation propagated via some other mechanism.We must also consider the psychological aspects of telepathy. A person may preferentially focustelepathically on the thoughts and emotions of someone who is psychologically “near,” even if farremoved in physical space.There is another, most curious, aspect of telepathy. Telepathic-type phenomena are not limited to thepresent, but transcend the boundaries of time. Telepathic information can be received from the futureand the past, with the proviso that telepathic experiences drop off dramatically as one movestemporally further away from the present.
Various forms of precognition, such as those confirmed byPage 2of 5Thoughts Have Wings | New Dawn : The World's Most Unusual Magazine3/2/2011http://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/paranormal-parapsychology-ufos-new-science/t...
 
Dr. Bem, can be explained in terms of telepathic information received from the future, the futureagent in some cases being the same person as the receiver (the percipient) in the present. You canreceive telepathic information from your future self! Perhaps this sounds strange, but it may just bethe way the world is. Indeed, if you think about it, who is closer emotionally and psychologically toyou than yourself?
