Every person wished at one time or the other to exercise the power of telepathy. Imagine the benefits. People wouldn’t need cellphones. Walkie talkies would never have been invented. Maybe even radio and TV would have been a mere fantasy as the need to broadcast news would be a moot point. After all, people can update each other with thoughts in real time wherever the recepient would be. Now this would shock you:
Everyone had this skill. As children, you surely recall how easy it was to grab impressions from your parents. They haven’t opened their mouths yet and you already knew what was forthcoming. You also broadcast your thoughts easily- parents knew that you were ill, happy or sad. But then you grew older. Your logical brain shut down your capacity to project and receive thoughts.
