Some examples of psychic phenomenon are so common that they don’t even really stand out as having significance in our day-to-day to lives, as they are just seamlessly woven into reality. No one demands a scientific explanation. We’ve all experienced them before.
The curious moment when a friend or loved one pops into your mind seconds before the phone rings, with them on the other line. You suddenly think of someone you haven’t seen in ages and a few minutes later that person texts you. These are the everyday tell-tale signs that the human psyche is always one step ahead of the human mind.
Unexplainable, perhaps, but why is it that mental telepathy seems to be so commonly connected communication? Is it the brain acting as a radio transmitter, sending and receiving information at immeasurable speeds, or is it something more akin to quantum entanglement?
The Scientific Approach
To determine whether or not the telepathic or pre-cognitive experiences as these were occurring by chance or by some deliberate act of nature, author and biologist
Dr. Rupert Sheldrake conducted an experiment which goes a long way in answering this question.
He set up an experiment which had a person receiving a phone call guess who was calling before answering. The subject knew the caller had to be one of four potential callers, giving the experiment a hit rate for chance of 25%, although in reality this phenomena occurs from a much broader base of callers.
Looking at the statistical result, the general sample indicated there was about 44% chance of correctly guessing the caller, a number which is much higher than what can be accounted for by mere chance. More interestingly, the percentage rose even higher when the pool of callers was narrowed down to people who had closer social or emotional bonds with the subjects, such as close friends or extended family members.
Brain Waves or Quantum Entanglement?
The human brain and radios both use the same form of electromagnetic radiation to communicate beyond their physical boundaries. This type of radiation is energy transmitted at the speed of light in waves which can vary in strength, or volume, and in wavelength, the length of the cycle of the wave measured against time. Radios use much higher frequencies of energy than the human brain does, yet the concept is the same.
“Radio waves, which include radio and other wireless transmission signals, as well as other natural signals in the same frequency, peak and trough at between 50 and 1000 megahertz—that’s between 50 million and one billion oscillations per second. The human brain also emits waves, like when a person focuses her attention or remembers something. This activity fires thousands of neurons simultaneously at the same frequency generating a wave—but at a rate closer to 10 to 100 cycles per second.” [
Electromagnetic radiation emitted by the billions of neurons within the human brain is strong enough, and organized enough to be picked up and interpreted in patterns by EEG technology, which uses sensors that touch the scalp and relay messages to a computer.
Computer Simulated Paranormal Experiences
Much like the human eye can only see light within a certain range of the total range of all light, the human brain utilizes only a certain narrow range of electromagnetic energy out of the total possible spectrum of signals being carried in and around our environment. The work of
Dr. Michael Persinger is aimed at proving that paranormal encounters are illusions created by the brain itself, a sort of temporary broadening of the ability to process electromagnetic energy. The science of this is fascinating, as technology is allowing us to influence the brain in subtle, deliberate ways which trigger specific chemical reactions that change our perception of reality. We now can literally trigger paranormal experiences in the science lab…
