More fodder for those trying to convince a skeptic. Here is a new dream study that suggests a very high chance that telepathy is real. Surprised?
Dream Telepathy: New Data
In a recent paper (Smith, (2013) Can healthy, young adults uncover personal details of unknown target individuals in their dreams? Explore 2013; 9:17-25) Carlyle Smith, the distinguished cognitive scientist and Lifetime Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, Trent University, in Canada presented data that seemed to suggest that people can intentionally dream details about the personal problems of an unknown individual simply by examining a picture of the target and then “incubating” or planning to dream about that individual’s problems.
It is no understatement to say that Smith is a very careful and rigorist experimentalist. He was and is a driving force in the revolutionary transformation in our understanding of how sleep can facilitate memory consolidation. The design of these experiments on dream “telepathy” were similarly well designed and so need to be taken seriously.
