Thoughts Have Wings

Telepathy is real. Thoughts have wings. Of this I am certain. It is a shame that telepathy, direct mind-to-mind interaction
independent of the known senses (vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch, balance, and so on), is still shunned and mocked by
many people. This despite the extensive studies of telepathy, precognition, and similar mental phenomena, carried out for
more than a century by some of the best minds, including Ph.D. scientists and Nobel laureates.1

The basic phenomena of telepathy have been demonstrated over and over again, and even put to
practical use. A vast scientific literature on parapsychology (which encompasses the study of
telepathy) exists, with specialised journals and societies.2

There is strong laboratory evidence for telepathy, from classic card-calling studies to controlled
experiments where an agent inserts material telepathically into a subject’s dreams, through more
sophisticated tests for telepathic information transfer in the fully conscious state or at the threshold of
consciousness between sleep and waking (hypnagogia).

A large and compelling body of evidence from spontaneous cases supports the reality of telepathy,
such as crisis events when a person has telepathic awareness, or even “sees” an apparition, of a loved
one experiencing emotional turmoil, pain, suffering, or death. Telepathy and related
parapsychological phenomena have been successfully applied to intelligence gathering. Jimmy Carter,
39th President of the United States (1977-1981), testified to their efficacy.

The proven results of these exchanges between our intelligence services and parapsychologists
raise some of the most intriguing and unanswerable questions of my presidency… They defy
logic, but the facts are undeniable.3

Recently Dr. Daryl J. Bem of Cornell University released the results of nine experiments, involving
over a thousand participants, documenting consistently significant positive results for precognition
and retroactive influences, important components of parapsychology.4 Despite the overwhelming
evidence for telepathy and related phenomena, many scientists do not consider parapsychology a
science and, knowing nothing about the subject, feel free to make disparaging statements concerning
the field and its practitioners.

At this point I believe it is time to move beyond assuaging the debunkers and scoffers, for no amount
of evidence will ever convince some that telepathy is genuine. Let us concentrate on studying the
phenomena and unravelling the secrets of telepathy. Thoughts may have wings, but how far can they
fly?

Telepathy is often considered independent of distance; that is, thoughts are free to fly as far as they
desire. But, is this really the case? There are well-attested instances of telepathy occurring over
thousands of kilometres, but to conclude that all telepathy is literally independent of distance is
premature. It is extremely difficult to measure the strength of a telepathic signal apart from the
delivery of the message (in analogy, an audible message may be received across a room whether
yelled or whispered).

A few controlled studies indicate that at least sometimes telepathy may attenuate with distance.5
Attenuation might be expected unless perhaps telepathy is a nonlocal quantum mechanical
phenomenon. Possibly there are multiple forms of telepathy: information carried on extremely low
frequency electromagnetic waves, information transferred by quantum mechanical means, and
information propagated via some other mechanism.

We must also consider the psychological aspects of telepathy. A person may preferentially focus
telepathically on the thoughts and emotions of someone who is psychologically “near,” even if far
removed in physical space.

There is another, most curious, aspect of telepathy. Telepathic-type phenomena are not limited to the
present, but transcend the boundaries of time. Telepathic information can be received from the future
and the past, with the proviso that telepathic experiences drop off dramatically as one moves
temporally further away from the present.6 Various forms of precognition, such as those confirmed by

Dr. Bem, can be explained in terms of telepathic information received from the future, the future
agent in some cases being the same person as the receiver (the percipient) in the present. You can
receive telepathic information from your future self! Perhaps this sounds strange, but it may just be
the way the world is. Indeed, if you think about it, who is closer emotionally and psychologically to
you than yourself?

ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D., is renowned for his work on re-dating the Great
Sphinx. Based on his geological studies, he determined that the Sphinx’s origins date
prior to dynastic times. He has also focused his attention on the Great Pyramid and
various other temples and tombs in Egypt, as well as studying similar structures around
the world. Dr. Schoch is an author and coauthor of both technical and popular books,
including the trilogy with R. A. McNally: Voices of the Rocks: A Scientist Looks at
Catastrophes and Ancient Civilizations (1999), Voyages of the Pyramid Builders: The
True Origins of the Pyramids from Lost Egypt to Ancient America (2003), and Pyramid
Quest: Secrets of the Great Pyramid and the Dawn of Civilization (2005). Dr. Schoch’s
most recent book is The Parapsychology Revolution: A Concise Anthology of
Paranormal and Psychical Research (2008, compilation and commentary by Robert M.
Schoch and Logan Yonavjak). Website: www.robertschoch.com.
