Is telepathy science fact, or science fiction?
« on: 22/04/2015 19:14:35 »
If science is putting forward a theory then measuring, measuring, measuring to find if correct or not. So far telepathy has not been scientifically proven or not. Oliver lodge please note!
Call it metaphysics!
So, have any of you great scientists ever had any experience of telepathy?   I have,     so I,m a nut case or heretic !
Let's start this hare running and see where it takes us.

As I'm not a great scientist, I will leave this to others.

i was going to start a thread about telepathy.

i think it is totally science explainable.

brains function by electrical pause/current, thoughts can produce em wave is for sure.

how to receive and decode/redshift/blueshift brainwaves will be the key to unlock this mystery.

... If some people had some weird ability like this, say telepathy, it would be useful to them and they (and their progeny) would soon end up ruling the world with the rest of us extinct or an underclass.

What is this supposed to be about? Are you seriously looking for people who have had experience with telepathy? If so then this is the worse way to determine if such a thing exists. The sample is way to small to be statistically meaningful.

This is in the way of the paranormal. There have been real scientific work on remote viewing at Princeton University. When their PARE Laboratory was in operation they did many experiments in areas one might otherwise call the paranormal. In science they're called Engineering Anomalies.
