Scientists Conduct First Successful Telepathy Experiment

Scientists Conduct First Successful Telepathy Experiment

After concluding an interesting experiment, scientists claim that they were able to send a 'mental message' from one person to another without having any contact between them.

The research carried out by a team of experts from the Harvard University showed that with the help of technology information could be easily transmitted from one person's brain to another's even if they are sitting at a distance of thousand miles.

For the experiment, the researchers made one person sit in India and the other in Paris and were given a wireless, Internet-linked electroencephalogram or EEG to wear. A person who is sitting in India thinks of a simple greeting, like "hola" or "ciao". The thoughts that were thought by the person were translated by computer into digital binary code i. e. into 1s or 0s.

Then, the message that is converted into the binary code was sent from India to France and was further delivered to the receiver via robot. The receiver through non-invasive brain stimulation was able to see only flashes of light in their peripheral vision. It means that the receivers in both the conditions did not see the words but were able to report the flashes of lights that helped them to correspond to the message.

Giulio Ruffini, a theoretical physicist and co-author of the research, said that this is not magical as it is a kind of technological comprehension of the dream of telepathy. He said that he along with his team is using a technology to relate electromagnetically with the brain.

Co-author Alvaro Pascual-Leone, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, said, "We wanted to find out if one could communicate directly between two people by reading out brain activity from one person and injecting brain activity into the second person, and do so across great physical distances by leveraging existing communication pathways".

Ruffin said that extra care and attention was taken so that no sensory information could influence the interpretation of the message.
