Brain Study Shows Telepathy Is Possible from A Mile Away

Researchers were left baffled after discovering that telepathy could exist.

A ‘telepathic” study conducted by scientists from University of Washington’s Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences showed one participant answering another’s questions from a mile away.

In the brain game, the first participant, identified as the respondent, is asked to wear an electrode cap which records their brain activity. Afterwards, they are shown photos of an object on a computer screen.

The study involving five pairs of volunteers who played 20 rounds of the game was conducted in dark rooms which are almost a mile away from each other.

Meanwhile, the second participant, known as the inquirer, is given a list of possible objects and associated questions as well a series of questions which he or she will send to the respondent by simply clicking a mouse.

Meanwhile, the respondent answers ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the participant’s question by focusing on one of the two LED lights flashing at different frequencies.

Both answers are transmitted as a signal over the Internet which activates a neuron-stimulating coil located behind the inquirer’s head.

However, only the ‘yes’ signal is strong enough to trigger what seems to be a flash of light behind the eyes.

A brief disruption in the brain’s visual cortex that triggers a flash or “phosphene” notifies the inquirer  the answer is “yes”.

As a result, the inquirer is able to identify the object based on the answers to the questions.

Their findings showed that the players were able to answer correctly 72% of the time. On the other hand, researchers believe that incorrect answers were given due to several factors including apprehension about whether a phosphene appeared.

The incredible brain test is published in the online journal Public Library of Science ONE.

According to Dr Andrea Stocco, the lead of the research team, the study is  the most complex brain-to-brain experiment performed on humans.

It uses conscious experiences through signals that are experienced visually and it requires two people to collaborate,” Stocco explained.
