You have heard it before. Psychics say that they can read the mind of strangers, you have premonitions regarding a close family member or you have seen documentaries on the telepathic connection between twins. Are these just magical mysteries or is there any substance to this?
Harvard scientists have recently completed an experiment of sending a simple ‘mind-to-mind’ message from a person in India to a person in France.
The researchers have demonstrated the conscious transmission of information between human brains through the intact scalp and without intervention of motor or peripheral sensory systems.
This experiment did not prove psychic powers do, or don’t, exist, but it did categorically demonstrated that brain-to-brain communication can take place.
The complex experiment involved computers, robots, and one person wearing a wireless, internet-linked electroencephalogram.
For the experiment, the person wearing the EEG would concentrate deeply on a simple greeting i.e. ‘hola’ or ‘ciao’ which was then translated these words into digital binary code by the computer. Then, this message was emailed from India to France, and delivered via robot to the receiver in France, who through non-invasive brain stimulation could see flashes of light in their peripheral vision.
The individual receiving the message did not hear or see the words , but were correctly able to report the flashes of light that corresponded to the message. , These ‘phosphenes’ or white flashes were then interpreted into the words ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’, in a process that took another half hour.
A second similar experiment was conducted between individuals in Spain and France, with the end result a total error rate of just 15 %.
“We were able to directly and noninvasively transmit a thought - information -from one person to another, without them having to speak, touch, write, hear or see each other,” says Giulio Ruffini. “This in itself is a remarkable step in the progress of human communication. We believe these experiments represent an important first step in exploring the feasibility of complementing or bypassing traditional language-based or motor-based communication to empower human interaction.”
The researchers further stated in their research paper ‘.. these initial results suggest new research directions, including the non-invasive direct transmission of emotions and feelings’.
This technology may play an important role in treating people with depression, psychosis and speech impediments.
Many best-selling motivational authors such as Louise Hay, Esther Hicks, and Wayne Dyer have oftentimes proposed that human thought is a vibration and that every thought has an impact. The neuroscientist and epi-geneticists are now at the doorway of understanding this phenomenon through scientific studies. As the great physicist Nikola Tesla once said “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”.
The confluence of all these ideas can only benefit humanity.
