because it sounds like an ability that would be wonderful to have.

How do you know it isn’t real? Perhaps we just havent tapped into it yet…it would be like having a sixth sense, extrasensory perception.
The human mind apparently only uses like 15 percent of its capacity…what is that other 85 percent for? I believe its totally possible.

I knew you were going to ask that…
Seriously though, walk in to any church and notice how wild ideas can spread, no matter how nonsensical.

I think that it is such a prevalent idea just because it is one of the top fantasy powers that people wish they had. It’s common for people to want to know what others are thinking or to be able to control other people’s minds. I think that this stems from two primary sources:
1. Lust For Power — By knowing and/or controlling the minds of others one can achieve great power. Telepathy is often fantasized in this sense as a means of control and dominance, whether for the greater good or personal ambitions (Jedi Mind Trick, Vampire Mesmerism/Puppetry)
2. Insecurity — People are often worried and fearful of what others think. This is why silence is uncomfortable and people often ask, “What are you thinking?”. With telepathy you would know for certain. Fear of ridicule, fear of conspiracy, fear of non-acceptance are all motives for wanting to know the thoughts of others.
The mind has long been a subject of mystery and intrigue. It’s no wonder that people fantasize about having the power to know and control it.

Mmm how do we know it isn’t real as some claim to have this gift ? People claim to have lots of different ‘gifts’. I can’t answer the question but I DO know that we only use a very very tiny part of our huge brain so what’s the rest of the grey matter for then, hey ? Does it lie dormant waiting for us to utilise it ? Or is it leftover organ from a species we used to be ? After all we already have a few of them don’t we ? The spleen for one. Some ‘historians’ make claims that we were far more intelligent than we are now. There you go that’s something else for you to think about. What’s that you’re thinking ? Yes, see !? I knew you’d agree with me !!!

It is real. It kills

Who says it’s not real?

UGH. Read my mind, people: Nobody wants telepathy to be real. Nobody wants to live in a fishbowl!

Telepathy is real, people don’t want it to be real because it can be dangerous. So they come up with all kinds of other reasons instead of telepathy. But not everyone can be fooled and listen to what the majority says.

the same could be said for God.

because deep down, people know that telepathy is real. I don’t know about you, but I have never heard anyone say, “I really shouldn’t have trusted my gut instincts.” That’s basically what it’s about, being in tune to your intuition.
I do spiritual healing with singing bowls. I play the bowl in someone’s hand, and feel the vibrations as they extend through the person, and can tell them where the vibrations are and what they’re doing.
I used to work with a Reiki master who could tell people many details about their lives while we were doing our energy work. Very specific things
One time on a camping trip, we created a psychic link which allowed us to keep tabs on each other without needing those family band radios.

Personally I feel like Einstein did. He said we only use about 10% of our brains. Maybe the prevalence of the idea came from the school of theory that says we’re evolving. While I don’t believe in evolution personally, it’s intrigue would lend to the ability of a person to use more than 10% of their brains, with the possibility of telepathy being one of the benefits (or pratfalls in some cases).
