Neuroscience Researcher and Laurentian University professor, Dr. Michael Persinger, demonstrates telepathy under laboratory conditions.

Claims of telepathy, ESP and other psi phenomena are a mainstay of popular culture but taboo in neuroscience research circles. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Persinger of Canada’s Laurentian University has never been afraid to venture where other researchers fear to go. In the 1980′s Persinger made headlines with his “God Helmet”, a device that stimulates temporal lobes with a weak magnetic field in order to produce religious states.

Now, Persinger has discovered the same type of brain stimulation can create metal states conducive to human telepathy. “What we have found is that if you place two different people at a distance and put a circular magnetic field around both, and you make sure they are connected to the same computer so they get the same stimulation, then if you flash a light in one person’s eye the person in the other room receiving just the magnetic field will show changes in their brain as if they saw the flash of light. We think that’s tremendous because it may be the first macro demonstration of a quantum connection, or so-called quantum entanglement. If true, then there’s another way of potential communication that may have physical applications, for example, in space travel.”

While Persinger’s experiments could prove groundbreaking, he remains doubtful about his controversial findings reaching his colleagues, “I think the critical thing about science is to be open-minded. It’s really important to realize that the true subject matter of science is the pursuit of the unknown. Sadly scientists have become extraordinarily group-oriented. Our most typical critics are not are mystic believer types. They are scientists who have a narrow vision of what the world is like.”

It seems that the neutrinos are going faster than light. Can others please review our results and tell what we did wrong.

We proved it, boo-yah, suck it science. There is a big conspiracy that scientist follow with closed minds. Only open minded people will understand it.

To which category does the above fit?

I am going to regard this with cautious excitement... Any Derren Brown wannabe can discreetly influence two audience members and demonstrate "telepathy" (read: mutual suggestivity), but to measure a direct correllation between stimulus in subject A, and neuro-electrical response in subject B, in a laboratory environment, is quite different. I'd be curious to know how much the subjects were told about the experiment's purpose beforehand.

BTW, rev, your posts are always awesome Laughing

OH NO! It is starting next we will begin to share a hive mind! Then because of our greed we will spread to other planets saying "WE ARE BORG, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE" Shocked
