Examples in popular media 1) South Park (2001) -Season 5, Episode 8 (“Towelie”): There is a brief mention of a possible telepathic link

between Towelie and the four main characters around 00:07:59. In this case, telepathy is dismissed as being unlikely. 2) Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983) -Yoda reads Luke's mind to discover that Darth Vader told him that he was his father around 00:42:32. -Darth Vader reads Luke's mind to find that Luke's feelings for all of his friends are very strong, especially for Leia around 01:52:00 -Leia feels that Luke wasn't on Death Star when it exploded around 02:03:41. (I could get examples from the other Star Wars movies, but I don't know if we want the majority of our examples to be from the same source.) -I don't know if it's worth anything, but I found the following from “George Lucas quite naturally believes that he wrote "Starwars", when, in reality, he was told telepathically what to write in the original first three Episodes (46), by the very "Force" to which the films refer, and was "forced" to make only episodes 4-6, first, as a very important step in the preparation of mankind for the long-awaited TRUTH, about the real reasons for human life on Earth ("what on earth am I doing here?"), the meaning of life and its purpose, contained in "The Way home or face The Fire", from which episodes 1-3 should have been made, as I did my best, frequently, to tell him.” I thought that was pretty ironic. Also, on the same page, the guy tries to prove that UFOs exist. 3) Telepathy (2008) -There's a movie coming out in 2008 (IMDB link: about a pair of identical twins separated by Russian scientists to determine if they can communicate with each other while one is kept on earth and the other is launched into space. I couldn't find any clips (obviously) or promotional material for it, though. 4) Escape to Witch Mountain (1975) -For our purposes, this movie is basically about two kids that have telekinetic and telepathic powers. Apparently, there's a part where one of the kids (Tia) gets a strong feeling that a man should not get into his car. The man follows her advice, and shortly thereafter, an out of control truck swerves into the place he would have ben had he been in his car. 5) Star Trek (Several different series, such as The Next Generation, Enterprise, Deep Space Nine, etc.) -Deanna Troi is half human, half Betazoid, a species in which a portion of their brain is devoted to telepathy. 6) Team America: World Police (2004) -Throughout the movie, Lisa, a “psychic,” senses only the painfully obvious, such as when she says “I sense that I'm attracted to him,” or when she says “I sense that you're making him feel intimidated” around 00:20:31 after a member on the team says that it's a mistake to let Gary on the team. Again, telepathy is discredited in this instance (the movie was directed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the same people who make South Park). 7) Scanners (1981) -This movie is about 237 people in the world that are “Scanners;” that is, they have incredible physic powers and can control minds. I found two clips that promote the release of the movie. 8) X-Men (The comic/movie) -Not all of these are in any of the movies, but several characters, such as Jean Gray (called

9) Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1999) -Episode “Earshot”: Buffy is almost driven crazy by her telepathic abilities that appear one day and allow her to hear people's thoughts.

Grateful Dead audience boost signal The most dramatic example of this type of telepathic experiment was carried out during a Grateful Dead concert (Krippner. but I do have a picture of the poster for the movie. but I could definitely get one for X-Men and probably find one for Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. the image being telepathically projected at him was of a man apparently floating in the air entitled 'The Seven Spinal Chakras'. I didn't really want to sit through all of escape to Witch Mountain for one clip. and two trailer-ish things for Scanners.

I talked to Ariel about doing more research besides the popular media examples. a particularly sensitive receiver sleeping in the dream research laboratory. I'm not sure if this is enough. I think the Ganzfeld experiments are more convincing evidence. and I found something that I thought was somewhat convincing evidence for telepathy. X-Men.
