What is the history of Telepathy?

I have searched the internet and I can’t get a good reliable source. This is for a project at school, so don’t be telling me there is no such thing. So, can anyone please tell me the history about it or give me a reliable source. Wikipedia, answers.com, etc. are not good sources.

    • I am very close to Jesus and that’s the only way you tune into the highest frequencies. It was through Him I received my abilities. Not everything supernatural is demonic and if you really read your Bible and didn’t just go by what someone else taught you…then you would know that. The whole Bible is about those who tapped in to the “supernatural” God we can’t see with our physical eyes. Then how do we REALLY know He is real? I would have thought the same thing from what I was taught growing up in church. But find out about God yourself. Be still and know that I am God. It’s in the stillness we learn to connect to Him in this supernatural way.

  1. Telepathy (Greek τηλε, tele meaning “distant” and πάθεια, patheia meaning “to be affected by”, refers to the supposed transfer of mental information, such as thoughts, ideas or emotions between individuals by means other than the five classical 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. An individual gifted with telepathic ability is said to be able to read the minds of others. Telepathy, along with psychokinesis, form the main branches of parapsychological research.
    Telepathy is a common theme in fiction and science fiction, with many superheroes and supervillains having telepathic abilities. Such abilities include sensing the thoughts of others. Some Transhumanists believe that technologically enabled telepathy, called “techlepathy”, will exist in the future of humanity, which we will develop practical machines for.
    Telepathy is commonly used in fiction, with a number of superheroes and supervillains, as well as figures in many science fiction novels, etc., use telepathy. Notable fictional telepaths include the Jedi in Star Wars. The mechanics of telepathy in fiction vary widely. Some fictional telepaths are limited to receiving only thoughts that are deliberately sent by other telepaths, or even to receiving thoughts from a specific other person. For example, in Robert A. Heinlein’s 1956 novel Time for the Stars, certain pairs of twins are able to send telepathic messages to each other. Some telepaths can read the thoughts only of those they touch, such as Vulcans in the Star Trek media franchise. Star Trek science consultant and writer André Bormanis, has revealed that telepathy within the Star Trek universe works via the “psionic field.” According to Bormanis, a psionic field is the “medium” through which unspoken thoughts and feelings are communicated through space.[4] Some humanoids can tap into this field through a kind of sense organ located in the brain; in the same manner that human eyes can sense portions of the electromagnetic field, telepaths can sense portions of the psionic field. In the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, telepathy is a magical skill known as Legilimency.
    Some people, occasionally referred to by themselves or others as “transhumanists”, believe that technologically enabled telepathy, coined “techlepathy”,”synthetic telepathy”,or “psychotronics”, will be the inevitable future of humanity. Kevin Warwick of the University of Reading, England is one of the leading proponents of this view and has based all of his recent cybernetics research around developing practical, safe technology for directly connecting human nervous systems together with computers and with each other. He believes techno-enabled telepathy will in the future become the primary form of human communication. He predicts that this will happen by means of the principle of natural selection, through which nearly everyone will have the need for such technology for economic and social reasons (low-self esteem).
    Types of telepathy
    Parapsychology describes several different forms of telepathy, including latent telepathy and precognitive telepathy.
    Latent Telepathy, formerly known as “deferred telepathy”, is described as being the transfer of information, through Psi, with an observable time-lag between transmission and receipt.
    Retrocognitive, Precognitive, and Intuitive Telepathy is described as being the transfer of information, through Psi, about the past, future or present state of an individual’s mind[3]
    Emotive Telepathy, also known as remote influence or emotional transfer, is the process of transferring kinesthetic sensations through altered states.
    Superconscious Telepathy, involves tapping into the superconscious to access the collective wisdom of the human species for knowledge.
    According to Roger Luckhurst, the origin of the concept of telepathy (not telepathy itself) in the Western civilization can be tracked to the late 19th century. Prior to this period, science focused on physical phenomena and did not frequently concern itself with “the mind.” As the physical sciences made significant advances, scientific concepts were applied to real or imagined mental phenomena (e.g., animal magnetism), with the hope that this would help understand paranormal phenomena. The concept of telepathy emerged in this historical context.
    In addition, the notion of telepathy is similar to two psychological concepts: delusions of thought insertion/removal and psychological symbiosis. This similarity might explain how some people have come up with the idea of telephathy. Thought insertion/removal is a symptom of psychosis, particularly of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. Psychiatric patients who experience this symptom falsely believe that some of their thoughts are not their own and that others (e.g., other people, aliens, or conspiring

  2. oops – the Qur’an to the rescue. It tells us “no human soul but hath a guardian over it”. This is what we call a “spirit guide” – but one must appreciate it is ‘our turn’ down here – so they can’t ‘take over’ or they may as well be here instead. – The ‘guardians’ must ‘get together’.

    • I have done a research in telepathy. I am a telepath. But, very difficult to explain for others. There are cultural misinterpretations and misunderstandings. While I had been in the overseas I sent my 18 pages research paper to one of my family members here in the USA. I have used some theories and calculations in the paper. But, he told me as he did not understood them. I am a well learned scholar ,Still I am working on another graduate degree. I believe as I would come out one day with a new device
      that can help humanity and as make them understand as telepathy can be made very useful to solve our problems. But I need resources and an institution. Telepathy is a true and real phenomenon.
      I am an Orthodox Christian ,read on number of religions .I know God has given us all gifts, I do not deny that ,but we can explain this scientifically and 100%.I thank you.
