Researcher Presents the Evidence That Autistic Children Possess Telepathic Powers

/, Human Brain, Parapsychology & Psychic Phenomena, Psychology & Mental Health, Uncommon Science/Researcher Presents the Evidence That Autistic Children Possess Telepathic Powers

What you think you know about autistic children just got an upgrade. Recent findings suggest that autistic children could possess telepathic abilities.

If you’ve ever been around autistic children, then you recognize right away how different they are. It’s hard to categorize the symptoms of autism, however, because it comes in many spectrums.

Some autistic children are loud, while some never speak a word, only use actions to convey messages. What many of them have in common, although, is their display of a highly intelligent personality.

Remarkable traits of the autistic child

Some of these “savants” actually showcase extraordinary abilities. Some children display amazing mathematical and artistic capabilities, while others excel in either left or right sides of the brain separately. While most people believe these abilities aren’t present in the “quiet one”, to the contrary. In fact, the ones who are seen as “quiet” or “not there” display abilities that surpass the average person.

It seems the lack of “normal” communication prevents these children from conveying messages or showing what they really know. The fact remains, they know much more than we give them credit for and long for a way to communicate more effectively. It’s a barrier which has yet to be effectively broken in the larger scale of things.

But there is one controversial ability that’s causing quite a stir: the telepathic powers of the autistic child. Diana Powell, neuro- psychiatrist, author, and researcher, having worked in many reputable areas of neuroscience, has now taken an interest in the telepathic abilities of autistic children.

Testing telepathic abilities

Last spring, Powell conducted an experiment with a severely autistic child named Haley. In the experiment, Haley and her therapist are separated by a partition but yet seated at the same table. The therapist was given various pictures and equations and would glance at them one by one. As she looked at the images or equations, the therapist would hold another card with numbers, letters or images in front of Haley. Haley would point to the number or image that she was thinking of.

The results were astonishing. The numbers or images that Haley pointed toward were the same numbers or images on the therapist’s hidden cards. In one particular test, her answers were 100% accurate. During the entire experiment, and through all the tests, Haley never once scored below 90%. If this proves that something remarkable is going on within then autistic child’s mind, then I don’t know what would.

As Powell studied these abilities in autistic children, she realized that there must be a common brain pattern present. Aside from the abilities present while being tested, Powell discovered the second most common state of being, where telepathy was present, was during sleep. This could be the reason for questioning dreams and their deeper meanings.

Similar results appear with ADHD and ADD affected children

Autistic children aren’t the only ones who experience this supernatural ability. If you’ve never heard of the term “Indigo”, then let me explain. The indigo generation or indigo children are said to possess certain supernatural traits. Now, many believe that children who suffer from either ADD or ADHD may be indigo children who have just been misdiagnosed. With that being said, these children, like autistic children, could possess telepathic abilities.

When children who suffer from supposed ADD or ADHD become hyperactive, it could be their way of trying to dispose of a huge amount of energy, the energy that most adults aren’t even familiar with. This same energy can be incoming telepathic messages that these children cannot understand or accept.

Apparently, these children also have a linked left and right brain – it’s harmonious. Utilizing our left and right brains in a harmonious manner is something that most people only accomplish through a lifetime of meditation and enlightenment practices.

Those with mental illnesses could also possess telepathic powers

According to my latest reading and research, patients who are administered into inpatient therapy at many psychiatric institutions are first screened for telepathic abilities. It is only after the patient claims supernatural abilities. Now, I am not sure why they do this, but many times, patients do show signs of being gifted in this area, but most of the time not enough to be conclusive. It’s just a bit of extra food for thought.

Individuals suffering from mental disorders, like those who live with ADD, ADHD and also autism, also show a remarkable ability to see things that others cannot. Intuition is stronger, which can be the mind’s effort for warning of something the subconscious can already detect, but yet the conscious has yet to see. There could be some sort of boundary yet to be broken, but thin enough that telepathy appears as intuition instead of straight-out supernatural abilities.

Nikoli Tesla said,

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

As science continues to look for answers for unsolved mysteries behind these abilities, we will continue to marvel in their implications. Maybe this is just beyond what science is willing to admit. Since the mind is an extremely powerful machine, its capabilities could be well beyond what we will ever understand as long as our mindset remains on physical standpoints.

I say we reach out and open our minds. Living on the standard of what we know through the denial of evidence will only hinder our ability to grow. I think the truth lies in between what we know and what we see as impossible. As for autistic children and their telepathic abilities, I say yes. There is much more to these gifted individuals than meets the eye.

    I have many times wondered on my own, with nothing to back it up, if humanity has been regressing in certain important areas. Technology has made amazing advances, but it is questionable if the overall effect is advantageous other than in medicine, the arts, and this type of research as examples.I see us as a species advancing more toward the material and solidity rather than otherwise.

    I do not see spirituality advancing in humanity and I do not necessarily see present day world religions as a spiritual asset, save for a small portion. I see them as patriarchal strongholds which we have been suffering under for several thousand years. Balance has been lost for a very long time and society cannot work properly without balance. I do not see religion as a bad thing in itself at all – I see misplaced power and interpretation gone amok creating mostly thoughtless followers.

    It took 20th century quantum theory to make the impossible possible. Perhaps it will take children to open our minds to the possibilities of the mind. And through it, more people who actually think and feel those thoughts to bring back balance and wonder.

      Thank you for this. You put to words what we know but just haven’t realized. Society is taking a step backwards, and it is partially the technological advances that are at fault and partially the fault of judgments, organized religions, laziness, etc etc etc. I am sick to death of everything being a conspiracy theory, and yet, I can’t help but wonder what’s really going on. Unfortunately, we take the risk of losing what matters and that is one extremely important thing – love. Humanity could be dying, although I hope not, and all we can do is be better as a person. My son’s first tattoo says, “Do better/be better” This is our hope. This is all we can do.

    Taken from your 2nd Source: “About this iReport: Not verified by CNN”

    Your 3rd source, tells exactly the opposite:
    “of the nine patients who completed the task, none performed above chance expectations”

    “Telepathy in mental illness: deluge or delusion?
    Greyson B.
    The belief that one can read others’ minds has long been considered a symptom of psychosis, despite reports in the parapsychological literature of veridical telepathy. All patients admitted to an inpatient psychiatric unit were screened for paranormal beliefs, and those claiming telepathic abilities were tested in a free-response ESP task. Eighteen per cent of the inpatient population claimed telepathic abilities; of the nine patients who completed the task, none performed above chance expectations. Higher frequencies of paranormal experiences than those reported previously in the psychiatric literature were attributed to the context of the study. Schneider’s first rank symptoms and a belief in telepathy discriminated schizophrenics more reliably than other paranormal experiences. Possible psychodynamics of delusions of telepathy were discussed in view of the predominance of women and younger men reporting them, as were the possible effects of such research on patients’ delusions.”

    I’m confused, can you help?

      No need to be confused. The simple fact is, there is not enough consistency to validate 100% that telepathic abilities are always real. There are way too many factors involved as of yet, to properly conclude that all cases are legitimate cases, and not products of mental illness. Yes, there are things in which you can look for in order to make an argument either way. I like to look at things from more than one perspective, I speculate unless of course, I have a personal testimony. I could have a few about this topic, honestly, but didn’t feel the need to get into that portion of my life yet again. Sometimes I like to speculate on others, the facts, the queries, and the possibilities.

      The truth of the matter is, we just don’t know conclusively, as fantastic as the evidence may be, we still have to consider “tricks of the mind” and “mental illness”. So don’t be confused, just download information and choose for yourself. I wasn’t being contradictory. I just like to leave things open for discussion.

    Well as a person who has experienced this type of phenomenon for over 30 years, I have more questions than answers, none of which have been studied or resolved. yes there is something out of the ordinary happening. is it typical telepathy “No”. It might better be described as a n entanglement or overlapping of fields of thought or a simultaneous knowing. It is dependent on a shared vocabulary and knowledge base. It is multi-faceted and subtle cuing often is a part of the process but cannot explain it in its entirety. No more than the disorganized system of the severely autistic person’s ability to even recognize the cues overlooked by a person with typical neurology. It is misunderstood, wrongfully promoted, and grossly understudied, but my fascination never ceases as I continue down the rabbit hole following my nonverbal allies. They seem to be the only ones interested in increasing my understanding of the process.

    Just stumbled across this article and found it extremely interesting. I have a daughter with autism who does have moments where she says things that shock everyone around her. She was none verbal until the age of 11 but since then often descibes her siblings pain as her own – without any way of knowing they had had accidents. Or when I ask her what she had eaten for lunch at school says what I or her siblings have had. Most recently she’s been able to tell us the colours of random things such as hair bobbles and hair clips but she has been blind since birth! I get alot of strange looks when I mention these occurrences but I’m not the only one whose noticed it with her. Her teaching assistant and siblings have picked up on it too. But it is almost a relief to hear there’s studies on it all so thank you for this article!
