Scientists claim 'first' telepathy success

Post by Agartha on Sat Sep 06, 2014 10:52 am

Scientists claim to have conducted the world's first successful telepathy experiment. They say that they have sent a "mental message" from one person, to another 4,000 miles away.

The experiment was conducted by a team of experts from the Harvard University. During the experiment, the researchers connected a person sitting in Mumbai, India, to a wireless headset that was linked with the internet. Another person who was part of the experiment was sitting in Paris with the similar devices attached with him. As per a report in the journal PLOS ONE, the first person sitting in Mumbai thought of greeting the person sitting in France.

The first person just thought "ciao", which means "hello" in Italian. The researchers found that the person sitting in Paris was aware of the thoughts that were occurring in the mind of the first person.
Sources revealed that the researchers made brain recordings of the individual in India and decoded and mailed the message to Paris, where a machine changed those words into brain stimulation in another person. The individual in France perceived the signals sent by the first individual in the form of flashes of lights.

Giulio Ruffini, a theoretical physicist and co-author of the research, said, "It is kind of technological realization of the dream of telepathy, but it is definitely not magical. We are using technology to interact electromagnetically with the brain".

Researchers in the current study used Electroencephalogram, or EEG, recordings by attaching an electrode cap on the scalp of both the individuals so that they could keep a track on the activities that were occurring at the wider region of brain during the experiment.

Whereas in the previous studies researchers used a method called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to stimulate parts of brain. In the recent study, the researchers used both the technologies, EEG recording and TMS.

Curious indeed. Be interesting to see where it goes.

Could save a lot of phone bills!

hahaha I don't really want to know what the person next to me is thinking........ I think lots of friendships and marriages would end if telepathy becomes a natural thing!!!

Maybe people would get a lot more honest with each other.

It's an interesting experiment, that's for sure. It's almost like turning the brain into the phone receiver... is that what happens during telepathy, just without the wires? Although, really, what are the odds that the first thing you're going to say to someone is 'hello'?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a believer in telepathy - I've experienced too many 'coincidences' with it to doubt it.

I will be honest will all of you and say that I think tinfoil hats are just a little smexy.

No, really.

Very Happy

Scientists Achieve Direct Brain-To-Brain Communication Between Humans
The Huffington Post | By Carolyn Gregoire

Posted: 11/08/2014

Telepathy is the stuff of science fiction. But what if the dystopian futurists were on to something?

What if our brains could directly interact with each other, bypassing the need for language? The idea isn't quite so far fetched, according to a recent University of Washington study in which researchers successfully replicated a direct brain-to-brain communication between two people.

In an initial demonstration a year ago, one of the researchers was able to send brain signals over the Internet in order to control the hand motions of another researcher. Now, in a more comprehensive study, the researchers repeatedly were able to transmit signals from one person’s brain via the Internet, and used these signals to control the hand motions of another person within a fraction of a second.

The study tested three pairs of participants (each with one sender and one receiver) who were seated in separate buildings on the Washington campus, roughly half a mile apart. They were unable to interact with one another, except for the link between their brains.

Here's what happens: One participant, the 'sender,' is hooked to an electroencephalography machine that reads his brain activity and sends electrical pulses via the Internet to the 'receiver,' who has a transcranial magnetic stimulation coil placed near the part of his brain that controls hand movements. With this technology, the sender can issue a command to move the hand of the receiver by simply thinking about the hand movement.

The sender, who is playing a computer game in which he has to defend a city by firing cannons, thinks about firing the cannon at various intervals throughout the game. The "Fire!" brain signal is sent over the Internet directly to the brain of the receiver, whose hand hits a touchpad that allows him to fire the cannon.

“The new study brings our brain-to-brain interfacing paradigm from an initial demonstration to something that is closer to a deliverable technology,” study co-author Andrea Stocco, a researcher at UW’s Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, said in a university statement. “Now we have replicated our methods and know that they can work reliably with walk-in participants.”

The accuracy among the pairs ranged from 25 to 83 percent, with errors attributed primarily to the sender's failure to "accurately execute" the fire-command thought rather than the hardware.

The UW team has earned a $1 million grant to conduct further research on decoding and transmitting more complex brain processes, expanding the types of information that can be sent from one brain to another.

The researchers believe that there could one day be potential therapeutic applications for people with brain injuries or disorders.

"We believe that it would be worth exploring the idea that you can help the [brain's] recovery process by literally transmitting the waves of a healthy brain to the brain that has been damaged," Stocco said in a UW video.

Although the applications for brain health are far in the future, the research could be a big step towards treating people with brain damage, according to researcher Chantel Prat of the UW Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences.

"This paradigm offers a wide opportunity for developing protocols for interacting with or putting information into a human brain," Prat added in an email to the Huffington Post. "This technology could eventually be used to 'patch' what is missing or lost in a brain-damaged individual."

The study was published in the journal PLOS ONE.

In my view telepathy is a part of everyones daily life. People tend to disbelieve what they cannot explain. Actually science is just catching up to what many people have known for thousand of years. I think it is ludicrous to believe everything can be proven by measurements. Matter is infinitely small which should indicate that only the human body is capable of such measurements. It seems some people can accept unexplained phenomenon while science cannot. There is so much we cannot know, it is much more than we can ever know.
