In the last week Jonathan and NW have had a rather involved discussion on the so-called paranormal.
With that conversation as a backdrop I’d like to share two anecdotes suggestive of telepathy from the last couple days, one which occurred to me and the other to a friend of my wife (let’s call her Jane).
We’ll start with Jane’s case. Two nights ago Jane had a nightmare in which she looked into a hole and suddenly dozens of moths flew out of the hole and in her face. At that moment she awoke to the screaming of her five year old in the next room. She ran into the room and he immediately told her that bugs like flies but with bigger wings flew in his face. The evidence clearly suggested that he had experienced a nightmare, and his description was strongly suggestive of a moth, not an insect he was familiar with.
That’s the more interesting case. Now for the more mundane one.
Last night my daughter was watching the 2009 film “Race to Witch Mountain” while my wife and I were sitting in the room reading. Earlier in the day my daughter had informed me that the actor Alexander Ludwig is from Vancouver. I don’t know who Alexander Ludwig is, nor frankly do I care. But about midway through the movie I suddenly remembered that comment and looked up at the screen. “So that’s the actor from Vancouver,” I thought to myself.
At that moment my daughter turned to my wife and said “Hey mom, did ya know that Alexander Ludwig is from Vancouver?”
Coincidences? Perhaps. But these kinds of cases could just as well be evidence for the as yet poorly understood ability of minds to communicate directly with one another. After all, in a world of quantum entanglement and the rapidly growing field of quantum information theory, anything’s possible.
