Telepathy is the transmission of psychic content or thoughts without using the other 5 senses. It is therefore a form of extrasensory perception (ESP).
The existence of telepathy is still widely discussed by many scholars today. Some believe in its existence, others do not … therefore studies and research are being carried out on it.
It is not uncommon to hear of two close brothers or friends who think of the same thing at the same time, or say the exact same thing at the same time.
However, this type of connection is not voluntary, but spontaneous and this makes it even more difficult to manage telepathy.
Usually, the best telepathic results are obtained when people united by a strong emotional and sentimental bond are involved (mother and son, two lovers, etc …). The telepathic couple expects one person to send and one to receive. The key to being able to communicate telepathically is to concentrate all the scattered rays of the mind, although there are many other exercises to improve this ability.
The term “telepathy” was introduced in 1882 by Frederic William Henry Myers and derives from the Greek τηλε, Tèle (far) and πάθεια, pàtheia (feeling). It falls within the field of investigation of parapsychology, but also within the field of investigation of psychiatry. The first studies on this alleged paranormal faculty were conducted by the Society for Psychic Research in London, towards the end of the nineteenth century. Sharing information, emotions and feelings, without the use of the five senses … To talk about this incredible possibility, as we have seen, we use the terms teas (far) and pàthos (suffering). The etymology. however, it is misleading. In fact, telepathy is basically a paranormal relationship between two or more people. But as far as “remote suffering” is concerned, it would be part of a sort of mental suggestion, which concerns more the magic field than the parapsychological one. In a funny piece with ironic tones, the philologist Leo Pestelli highlights the terms of the question:
«Many who have a nice wife , that is capable of suffering with them, do not know it: it is so important to know the true meaning of the words! And as one virtue often leads to another, a sympathetic wife is many times even telepathic: she suffers because the absent husband suffers. But mind you: it’s not telepathy, as is commonly said, the one for which the spouse of paranormal sensitivity has the almost vision of what is wrongfully committed in the distance from the other spouse (the basis of this item being that one suffers from both sides), but properly telesthesia , that is , knowing what is happening away from us. It remains that having a nice wife , telepathic and telesthesic, is too much grace at once. ”
Actually telesthesia would be the most suitable term: teas (far) and àisthèsis (sensation).
As with all aspects of the paranormal, numerous theories have been developed for telepathy. In the eighteenth century the existence of a sort of fluid was hypothesized: a physical substance not perceptible with the senses, projected by the agent to the perceiver. The concept of magnetism derived from it …
In the early years of that century, electrical phenomena were also thought of. The hypothesis materialized later thanks to the theories of Ferdinando Cazzamalli, at the beginning of the following century, on the transmission of electromagnetic waves. However Leonid Vasiljev, around the middle of the 1900s, obtained telepathic communications with the striker introduced into an insulated cabin with mercury-shielded lead plates: electromagnetic waves could not penetrate it, but telepathy worked. However, other schools followed different directions. Frederick Myers’ hypotheses at the turn of the two centuries were all due to the existence of a universal and immaterial psychism within which, in turn, individual ones would be immersed. He enunciated the theory of the subliminal, that is, unconscious, ego that can acquire knowledge without limits of space and time. Immediately thereafter, Eugène Osty hypothesized the possibility of a “transcendent level” of thought, not tied to brain functions in a strictly physical sense. Joseph Banks Rhine also came to a similar conclusion later, through quantitative statistical analysis, of which he was the greatest exponent. According to the scholar, human thought would have the possibility of coming into contact with an “extraphysical plan”.
Whately Carington, while confirming a sort of universal unconscious mind as the possibility of communication between all minds, introduced two new concepts in the study of the telepathic phenomenon: the “associations of ideas” and the “psychons”. Thanks to the association of ideas, psychons would be the architects of both telepathy and memory. The somewhat complex theory was reworked by other scholars, including the famous Hendrik Tenhaeff. More “simply” Henry Price assumed that an individual’s unconscious is in contact with a collective unconscious, in which psychisms interact. While Gardner Murphy explained telepathy with a system of psychic laws operating outside space-time.
Again in relation to a universal psychism, this was defined by one of the founders of psychoanalysis in Italy, Emilio Servadio, as “a psychic ocean in which telepathic osmosis takes place”.
Robert Thouless called shin an animistic principle capable of drawing information from other people. Psychoanalyst Jan Ehrenwald conceived a third level in man alongside the id and ego, described by Freud: the psi level, independent of space and time, and for which everything is perceptible.
Here is an exercise that you can practice every day:
When you walk on the street, look carefully at the head of a person in front of you and mentally repeat (staring at the person’s head): “Turn around, you have to turn around, I’m calling you, turn around!” At the beginning it is likely that no one will turn, but you will see that with practice and exercise someone will start to turn around. This exercise aims to prepare the mind for telepathy and then move on to more advanced exercises.
According to an ancient and partially modernized Indian philosophical conception, telepathic communication would take place through an immense network to which people would form the links, a network that includes the universe and everything and being is connected with the whole.
