Possible to read each other’s minds, say scientists

telepathy_mind readingResearchers from the University of Technology in Sydney, led by Dr Trisha Stratford have found out that some couples are so harmonious that their brain starts working “on the same wavelength”. This is the first scientific confirmation of the existence of the so-called sixth sense or telepathy in particular.

Many of us have ever had a feeling that someone is literally reading our thoughts or that you are reading someone’s mind. Especially it often happens in couples or between “eternal” friends.

Scientists have found evidence that people in harmonious couples really start thinking in sync. These data were derived from observations of brain activity in patients and psychologists during therapy sessions.

During the experiment the research team has ascertained similarity of the brain activity model of partners-volunteers who had reached a state in which their nervous system was pulsating almost coherently, helping them to recognize each other’s thoughts and emotions.

Scientists believe that their findings shed light on the behavior of couples, close friends and family members. Psychologists have long known that in some couples people learn to think like their partner – they know what he is thinking about or what he is going to say. It has been believed that it has to do with habit, because if you observe a person for many years you get an idea of how he is gonna react and what he is gonna say.

But the researchers from Sydney have shown that it is not the habit but the activity of the brain and the nervous system. They were observing a group of 30 pairs of patients and psychologists. Scientists have identified the critical moment when the nervous system was beginning to act in sync while their brain was working in altered state of consciousness.

“That was the point when the sixth sense “switches on” and people can read each other’s thoughts. – said Dr. Stratford – The parts of the brain that control the nervous system begin to work at the same pace.

  1. Yes, true, but first, takes years, and second, does NOT work both ways. I can read my wife’s mind, np, as all I have to do is remove reasoning, accountability, love, and respect for leadership, and her mind is opened like a one page book, if one can possibly exist.

    But she has zero clue about what I’m thinking, and zero understanding of what I stated, and surreal as this may sound, completely BLIND to what she may see occurring around here related to what I’m doing.

    But have ONE female say the most INANE statement, she will dial into that mind like a true telepath!!!!

  2. This is so true. Me and my best friend say almost everything at the same time and always know what the other person is thinking. Many people freak out when they see us talking at the same time but I never knew why or how that happened.

  3. my wife read my mind, now i have to sleep on the couch

  4. I’ve been best friend with a girl for almost 3 years- I’m turning 17. I can’t exactly read her mind but if I concentrate, I get “feelings” or an idea of what she’s feeling (happy, sad, mad, tired, bored) or doing (laughing, crying, yelling, sleeping, exercising.) We go to different schools- and I typically know how her day went before I ask. If she’s feeling something particularly strong, effort isn’t necessary in order to know. This does not exactly go both ways. But whenever I am significantly angry or sad- I promise there is no way for her to know- she calls. I have told 3 people about this- one, thinking it to be “cool” and the other two simply disbelieving, saying we know each other because we are so close. Is this unnatural?

    • Call me crazy maybe it part of u in another way not sure how 2 put it in words but yall are probably definitely connected maybe even in another life frm be4

  5. I feel like I get connected to other people at times without knowing it and at times I do it purposefully.
    also I love to get connected to new people and at far.
    Don’t know but feel good and wanna do it more n more and with more clarity.

  6. What does it mean if it happens with someone you just met?

  7. And it has never really happened with anyone before at least not this intense.

  8. My husband and I have this ‘telepathy’, which we truly consider to be a gift from God. We have wondered for years if other people have it. You see, we had it before we were married, we had it when we were still just friends and had barely considered dating. In fact at one point early on we decided that dating each other would never work – we were at different places in life – and by looking at how our relationship started on paper you’d never think it could have worked. Even when we tried to get away from each other, we still had the ability to read each other’s thoughts and feelings, and there was such a strong pull to be together that we knew we wouldn’t have peace in our lives unless we gave in to it. We’ve wondered for years if there were any other couples out there that had as strong of a ‘connection’ as we do. We’ve been happily married for over 6 years now, and our connection is just as strong now as it ever was. Here are some examples of our connection working:

    – I was in my car with my daughter on a shopping trip. We got a cookie at one of our stops, and as I started eating it, my phone rang. My husband asked me if I was eating a cookie, and said it must be really good because he could feel how happy I was eating it. My daughter had a very shocked look on her face, because my husband had no prior knowledge of where we were at.

    – One day before we had gotten together (or even considered dating) my husband showed me some pictures of himself when he was a kid. I immediately saw a painting hanging on his living room wall that looked familiar. That’s because I had seen it many times before in my dreams. The first time I visited his parents house I was immediately ‘at home’ in that living room.

    – When we were fighting the idea of being together, and had stopped talking to each other, I drove a friend to an airport out of town. On the way home I was confused and conflicted about what was going on. I prayed and prayed… and then issued a challenge to God (I never recommend doing this, btw). I looked at the clock (5:26) and said, “I give you 10 minutes to let me know that we’re supposed to be together”… then kind of laughed. After I arrived back in town that night, I met up with a couple of friends. I got a text that said, “What were you doing at 5:26 pm tonight?”. He went on to tell me that he was writing a 3 page letter of why we couldn’t be together, and then the Lord told him to put it down at the same time that I had prayed that prayer.

    – Yesterday morning I got up early, scheduled my workday, and then over coffee started talking about what we needed to do in our business. My husband quickly stopped me and told me exactly what I had already planned out in my mind. Every single item, in order.

    These are just a few examples, but they happen on a daily basis. I’d say it’s all good, except for when my heart acts up (I have 3 heart conditions). Regardless of where I’m at or what I’m doing, when my heart acts up it can become debilitating for my husband too. He feels physically sick when I’m not doing well. I guess that’s the bad side.

    Like I mentioned before, we believe that God leads us in our marriage, and allows us to have this connection. But even in our Christian walk, we’ve never come across another couple that has this. We are very interested in meeting other couples who share it!
