What is the probability that a person in India, will be able to send a message to another person in France – without using a phone, a computer, or at least … a pigeon?
A new study conducted in collaboration with the University of Barcelona and Harvard Medical School, sheds new light on the human brain's ability to send and receive messages via telepathy. In the study, the researchers used an advanced system that can ‘sense’ brain waves, and recorded the electrical activity that occurs in it by using an EEG headset.
How does it work? It's a bit difficult, so let’s try to concentrate.
Two people were selected for the experiment: One was present in India and one in France. The sender from India, expressed the words 'Hello' and 'Goodbye' in his mind. Electric currents generated in the brain (which actually correspond to the thoughts we think) by the sender, were sent directly to a computer. The computer processed the currents and sent them via electrical stimulation, to the receiver who, as noted above, was located in France. The message received by the recipient came in the form of flashes of light that appeared at the edge of his vision with large enough time intervals that gave him the ability to decipher the message.
According to the researchers, this is a significant breakthrough in the field, as this is the first time that a person on one side of the world can almost directly send a message and embed it into the mind of another person – all through telepathy.
