Professor finds evidence of telepathy.
A researcher based at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom has published a new book in which he claims that all human beings are capable of what is commonly understood of as telepathy.
Professor Digby Tatum writes in his new book ‘Interbrain’ that language only plays a very small part in understanding what other human beings are actually saying. Far more significant than verbal communication, he says, are the subliminal cues that people pick up when they are speaking to one another.
These tiny micro-clues that are not even discernible to most people are far more important in effective communication and understanding than any other factor, he claims.
Prof Tatum believes the brain absorbs information on other people sub-consciously which provides them with their ‘gut feeling’
“We can know directly about other people’s emotions and what they are paying attention to. It is based on the direct connection between our brains and other people’s and between their brain and ours. I call this the interbrain, ” he explains.
Professor Tatum claims that comprehension of the interbrain could help social scientists and those in other fields to understand crowd psychology. He claims that humans are drawn together in situations such as football matches, concerts, and religious gatherings precisely because of the small subliminal messages being given by multiple people all at once which are deciphered by the interbrain. He explains, ‘being in crowd mode may also make us experience what it would be like to transcend out perspective, our time, our place and our capacity, to feel for a moment, like a driving being.’
Professor Tatum says that it is particularly important for people to get to grips with the importance of these subliminal clues now as they are in danger of being undermined by the increasing rise of video calls and similar technological developments in recent years. Professor Tatum claims that these conversations necessarily are less significant than those that occur face to face because, ‘Emotional contagion occurs at the speed of light, not the speed of electronic transmission. Face-to-face visual input is accompanied by sound, by gesture, by the smell of sweat, by the possibility of touch, and by a connect.’
Unfortunately, if current trends continue, therefore there could be a significant erosion of this incredible skill that most people do not even know that they have.
