Telepathy is the transfer of information on thoughts or feelings between individuals by means other than the “five classic senses”. The term was coined in 1882 by the classical scholar Fredric W. H. Myers, a founder of the Society for Psychical Research, specifically to replace the earlier expression thought-transference. A telepath is a person with the paranormal ability to read others’ thoughts and mental contents. Telepathy is one kind of extrasensory perception which, along with psychokinesis, forms the main topics of parapsychological research. Many studies seeking to detect, understand, and utilize telepathy have been done within this field. This research has neither produced a replicable demonstration of telepathy, nor an accepted mechanism by which it might work. Hence the scientific community does not regard telepathy as a real phenomenon. It is hard to unambiguously distinguish telepathy from a number of other parapsychological hypotheses such as clairvoyance.


You can read other people’s minds. For instance, I can see your thoughts and your name…. Oohhmm… It’s…. First Name! XD
… Bad joke, sorry.


communication between minds by some means other than sensory perception. In other words, using your mind to communicate. As far as what it does, you can make plans without others knowing what they are, you may be able to read peoples thoughts without their permission. (not recommended)


The reception, and transmission of thought, unaided by technological device.
There is a $1,000,000 prize from James Randi for anyone who can scientifically demonstrate any kind of ESP, or paranormal phenomenon.
Many have tried; all have failed.
I read your thought: YOU ARE NOT IMPRESSED.
I make a prediction: THIS WILL NOT GET “BEST ANSWER”.
