5-Year-Old ‘Savant’ Being Studied for Telepathic Abilities


 


 


A “telepathic” little boy is being studied by scientists after his mom recorded him apparently exercising his abilities. The home videos recorded by Nyx Sanguino of her 5-year-old Ramses reached scientists, and Dr. Diane Powell, formerly of Harvard Medical School, decided to study the lad.

Powell thinks telepathy might be an alternative method of communication between autistic children and their parents. 

“If you think about it, if you have your primary language compromised then that would be a perfect setup for telepathy—because here you have a child and a parent who desperately want to communicate with one another but can’t,” she told Barcroft TV.

“I have found many autistic children who have been reported to be telepathic and I wanted to see it for myself and see if it can be evaluated and actually tested under rigorous, controlled conditions.”

Powell says she’s seen signs of telepathy in at least seven different people, including in three meetings with Ramses. 

“I am as confident that telepathy exists as I am a lot of things that have actually been accepted by science,” she said. “It’s very risky to one’s credibility to take on a subject like this—but I knew that when I got into it.”

In the meetings, Powell used a random-number generator to pick numbers for the mom to write down and think about. Ramses then attempted to read her mind to guess them, and he was often successful.

“I was amazed when we began testing Ramses. We do have a very close bond which may have something to do with his abilities—but this is beyond anything I would have imagined,” Nyx said.

“I don’t know how to explain it and I hope that Dr. Powell will eventually be able to give me some answers.”




Study links two human brains for question-and-answer experiment

Imagine a question-and-answer game played by two people who are not in the same place and not talking to each other. Round after round, one player asks a series of questions and accurately guesses the object the other is thinking about. Sci-fi? Mind-reading superpowers? Not quite.

University of Washington researchers recently used a direct brain-to-brain connection to enable pairs of participants to play a question-and-answer game by transmitting signals from one brain to the other over the Internet. The experiment, detailed today in PLOS ONE, is thought to be the first to show that two brains can be directly linked to allow one person to accurately guess what's on another person's mind.

"This is the most complex brain-to-brain experiment, I think, that's been done to date in humans," said lead author Andrea Stocco, an assistant professor of psychology and a researcher at UW's Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences.

"It uses conscious experiences through signals that are experienced visually, and it requires two people to collaborate," Stocco said.

Here's how it works: The first participant, or "respondent," wears a cap connected to an electroencephalography (EEG) machine that records electrical brain activity. The respondent is shown an object (for example, a dog) on a computer screen, and the second participant, or "inquirer," sees a list of possible objects and associated questions. With the click of a mouse, the inquirer sends a question and the respondent answers "yes" or "no" by focusing on one of two flashing LED lights attached to the monitor, which flash at different frequencies.

A "no" or "yes" answer both send a signal to the inquirer via the Internet and activate a magnetic coil positioned behind the inquirer's head. But only a "yes" answer generates a response intense enough to stimulate the visual cortex and cause the inquirer to see a flash of light known as a "phosphene." The phosphene—which might look like a blob, waves or a thin line—is created through a brief disruption in the visual field and tells the inquirer the answer is yes. Through answers to these simple yes or no questions, the inquirer identifies the correct item.

The experiment was carried out in dark rooms in two UW labs located almost a mile apart and involved five pairs of participants, who played 20 rounds of the question-and-answer game. Each game had eight objects and three questions that would solve the game if answered correctly. The sessions were a random mixture of 10 real games and 10 control games that were structured the same way.

The researchers took steps to ensure participants couldn't use clues other than direct brain communication to complete the game. Inquirers wore earplugs so they couldn't hear the different sounds produced by the varying stimulation intensities of the "yes" and "no" responses. Since noise travels through the skull bone, the researchers also changed the stimulation intensities slightly from game to game and randomly used three different intensities each for "yes" and "no" answers to further reduce the chance that sound could provide clues.

The researchers also repositioned the coil on the inquirer's head at the start of each game, but for the control games, added a plastic spacer undetectable to the participant that weakened the magnetic field enough to prevent the generation of phosphenes. Inquirers were not told whether they had correctly identified the items, and only the researcher on the respondent end knew whether each game was real or a control round.

"We took many steps to make sure that people were not cheating," Stocco said.

Participants were able to guess the correct object in 72 percent of the real games, compared with just 18 percent of the control rounds. Incorrect guesses in the real games could be caused by several factors, the most likely being uncertainty about whether a phosphene had appeared.

"They have to interpret something they're seeing with their brains," said co-author Chantel Prat, a faculty member at the Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences and a UW associate professor of psychology. "It's not something they've ever seen before."

Errors can also result from respondents not knowing the answers to questions or focusing on both answers, or by the brain signal transmission being interrupted by hardware problems.

"While the flashing lights are signals that we're putting into the brain, those parts of the brain are doing a million other things at any given time too," Prat said.

The study builds on the UW team's initial experiment in 2013, when it was the first to demonstrate a direct brain-to-brain connection between humans. Other scientists have connected the brains of rats and monkeys, and transmitted brain signals from a human to a rat, using electrodes inserted into animals' brains. In the 2013 experiment, the UW team used noninvasive technology to send a person's brain signals over the Internet to control the hand motions of another person (Researcher controls colleague's motions in first human brain-to-brain interface (w/ Video) ).

The first experiment evolved out of research by co-author Rajesh Rao, a UW professor of computer science and engineering, on brain-computer interfaces that enable people to activate devices with their minds. In 2011, Rao began collaborating with Stocco and Prat to determine how to link two human brains together.

In 2014, the researchers received a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation that allowed them to broaden their experiments to decode more complex interactions and brain processes. They are now exploring the possibility of "brain tutoring," transferring signals directly from healthy brains to ones that are developmentally impaired or impacted by external factors such as a stroke or accident, or simply to transfer knowledge from teacher to pupil.

The team is also working on transmitting brain states—for example, sending signals from an alert person to a sleepy one, or from a focused student to one who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

"Imagine having someone with ADHD and a neurotypical student," Prat said. "When the non-ADHD student is paying attention, the ADHD student's brain gets put into a state of greater attention automatically."

Many technological advancements over the past century, from the telegraph to the Internet, were created to facilitate communication between people. The UW team's work takes a different approach, using technology to strip away the need for such intermediaries.

"Evolution has spent a colossal amount of time to find ways for us and other animals to take information out of our brains and communicate it to other animals in the forms of behavior, speech and so on," Stocco said. "But it requires a translation. We can only communicate part of whatever our brain processes.

"What we are doing is kind of reversing the process a step at a time by opening up this box and taking signals from the brain and with minimal translation, putting them back in another person's brain," he said.

How your psychic senses are connected to Earth's energy

 

Psychic ability




Psychic researcher Pete A. Sanders Jr. knew early on that psych ability was real, leading him to spend his education at MIT studying brain science and biomedical chemistry, hoping to understand the complex relationship between the brain, the mind and the nervous system.

MIT professor Dr. Jerome Letvin inspired Sanders when he opened a course about nerve study stating: "I am not going to teach what we know about nerves. Everything we know would take about two class sessions to tell you, and is relatively boring. Instead I am going to talk about what we don't know about nerves."

Dr. Letvin's approach changed Sander's outlook on life, spurring him to pursue a career studying the brain's sensory abilities and their connection to ESP. The following is an excerpt from Sanders' book entitled You are Psychic! in which he discusses the relationship between Earth's energy patterns and our psychic abilities – which he believes we all have.

 

Greater awareness equals more security

 

"By learning to focus on the Psychic Reception Areas you will receive stronger psychic impressions, strong enough to divert your attention from your physical senses. With practice, even subtle energy patterns will be discernible.

"Best of all, you will be able to develop your extrasensory abilities safely and steadily. When you are able to turn them on at will you can also turn them off to prevent the possibility of a psychic overload. Additionally, you will have the increased security that greater awareness and skill always bring.

"All our senses, physical and psychic, function in part by receiving and responding to some form of energy. Physical vision depends on the energy of light waves striking the eye. Physical hearing senses the vibrational energy of sound waves.

"Taste and smell function through chemical energy reactions between certain molecules and the receptor cells of the tongue and olfactory areas. The psychic senses follow a similar pattern, except that the energies they interact with cannot be discerned physically or measured by current technology."

 

Psychic senses are invisible, but that doesn't mean they don't exist

 

"That should not deter you from exploring your psychic ability. Many forms of energy affect your life whether you understand them or not. Two hundred years ago little was understood about electricity, but electric energy existed. Though scientifically unexplained, lightning struck, electric eels gave shocks, the nervous system functioned. Even today, you may not fully understand how electricity works although you use it routinely.

"Consider what happens when you turn on a light. You don't need to understand how electrons travel back and forth in the wires. Neither do you need to be aware that for each of your thoughts and movements the electrical energy that is your brain and nervous system has processed millions of messages.

"You don't need to know that each of those brain messages involves billions of complex exchanges of chemical energy into electrical energy. Instead, you have learned by experience how to make those forms of energy work for you in practical ways even though you may not know how they work. You just raise your hand, flip the switch, and the light goes on.

"You need to adopt the same approach to using your psychic senses. They receive the psychic energy that is emitted by all people, places, and objects. Because you are energy, you can receive and identify those extrasensory vibrations.

"Much about the human brain is still unknown, and we use the word 'mind' as a sort of shorthand to describe mental abilities that go beyond what we know about the physical wiring of the cortex. Brain scientists cannot yet explain exactly why or how we dream, how memory is structured, or how we form a creative thought."

People, places and objects emit waves of energy that may be picked up on by your psychic senses

 "Yet every day we dream, we remember, and we think. Or consider the mystery of hypnosis. It has been studied and used successfully for over a century to reduce or eliminate pain (it has even been used in surgery instead of anesthesia), to help us control addictions, to uncover repressed memories, yet we still don't have a precise idea as to how or why hypnosis works.

 

 "The fact is that science today comprehends probably less than a tenth of what our brain and mind can do. In a world where many scientists now believe once unbelievable things, for instance, that all matter exists in ten dimensions; that time slows as you travel faster; that particles called tachyons, which can arrive at their destination before they leave their point of origin, may indeed exist; that the universe is literally a sea of interchangeable and interacting energy. In such a world, the concept of psychic sensitivity, of ESP, is no longer a farfetched fantasy.
 


"Therefore it is not reasonable to resign yourself to waiting until some researcher announces: 'We have now discovered exactly how extrasensory perception operates. You now have permission to use your psychic senses.' Even though science does not yet understand how psychic messages are processed, you can experience and use them in your daily life."

  1. I'll tell you what, we ALL have the ability to tune in and out of any given probability. Lean to SENSE by listening to self in the MOMENT, and you too can predict the next most probable reality. I do it all the time... REALLY listen and sense. That means tuning out the past and centering in on the channel that informs us, the ENERGY FORCE that transcends meaning, don't judge, just be and do and watch as the magic of reality is called ahead of time... Intention is a huge part of any psychic phenomenon, expect to know the sequences of any given probability and BECOME the one who perceives ALL
