Scientists have sent a mental message from one person to another 4,000 miles away in the world’s first successful telepathy experiment.
They connected one person in India to a sensitive headset linked to the internet and another to a similar device in Paris.
When the first person thought of a simple greeting like “Hello”, the recipient in France was aware of the thought.
The subject receiving the message could not see the word itself but could correctly report flashes of light in peripheral vision that corresponded to the exact moment the word “Hello” was thought.
The ground-breaking experiment, after 10 years’ work on the subject, was carried out by a team lead by scientists from America’s Harvard University.
