Extra Sensory
The Science and Pseudoscience of
Telepathy and Other Powers of the Mind

Are superpowers real? Can people really move objects with their mind? Communicate without speaking?

We'd all love to have "psi" abilities like telepathy, telekinesis, and remote viewing. But is there any solid evidence to back up these talents, or are they nothing more than fantasy? We still only understand a small percentage of the capabilities of the human brain - and we shouldn't dismiss such potential powers out of hand. Although there is no doubt that many who claim these abilities are frauds, and no one has yet won James Randi's $1 million prize for demonstrating ESP under lab conditions, we still have a Nobel Prize winner suggesting a mechanism for telepathy, serious scientists researching the field, and university projects that have produced potentially explosive results. What's the verdict? By looking at possible physical mechanisms for ESP and taking in the best scientific evidence, the reader can discover if this is all wishful thinking and deception, or a fascinating reality. The truth is out there.

Mind-reading tech helps beginners quickly learn to play Bach
A system involving brain sensors allowed a group of beginners to quickly learn to play a piano piece by Bach, and the tech could speed up other kinds of learning. Called BACh – for Brain Automated Chorales – the system helps beginners learn to play Bach chorales on piano by measuring how hard their brains are working. It only offers a new line of music to learn when the brain isn’t working too hard, avoiding information overload. Developed by Beste Yuksel and Robert Jacob of Tufts University in Massachusetts, BACh estimates the brain’s workload using functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), a technique that measures oxygen levels in the brain – in this case in the prefrontal cortex. A brain that’s working hard pulls in more oxygen. Sensors strapped to the player’s forehead talk to a computer, which delivers the new music. (Webmaster's comment: Our minds can be "read" by sensors. Why is some kind of "reading" of a human mind by another human mind so outlandish?)

The Mind Controlled UFO (Drone).
This is the orb that uses your focused brain waves to remotely control its flight. An included headband and earlobe clip measures electrical activity produced by your brain (similar to EEG monitoring technology used by medical professionals). A downloaded app converts an iPhone or Android device into a remote control that pairs with the headband via Bluetooth. As you relax and concentrate, an included infrared transmitter connected to your smartphone’s audio port sends a wireless signal to the UFO. The app provides a control panel that allows you to adjust the throttle, yaw, and pitch thresholds of the UFO’s propellers, adjust the sensitivity of concentration, and filter background electromagnetic interference. The included USB cable charges both the infrared transmitter and the UFO from a computer connection. (Webmaster's comment: If we can send our thoughts through our skull to a headband and control a drone it is certainly conceivable that if two persons place their heads close together, that with practice, they could communicate simple images, thoughts and feelings. And that would be PSI or ESP wouldn't it? In fact isn't communicating thoughts to a headband to control a drone PSI?)
