Why is telepathy so hard to understand?

How does information travel over the internet? Do you see it travel? No. But you know it does. How do you know its all "real"? Because you see it on your computer screen - right?

But you also know, and see, in equally "real" terms, that on some days, your computer(or your grinder, or the garden) seems to hate(or love) you. On some days, the person you are thinking of tends to call. When you are fervently hoping for something to happen, it does. That is equally real too, right?

So why is it that we believe in the "real" of the internet more than we believe in the "real" of the "Real"? Why is the bad mood of a "tool" less tangible (God knows we suffer real enough with it) ?

I've been thinking of this a lot. Why is Reiki, telepathy and auras still "occult"? We saw auras with Kirlian Photography and then some people started to believe it. Like our own eyes are less reliable than a camera. If we devised a camera someday that could, magically, capture "thought waves" as they flow out of our bodies, into the auras and then into the area around us, if such a camera comes into being, THEN, we will believe in the power of thoughts to make things happen. Until then, all the proof that stares us into the face, every single day, is "unreliable" and "coincidence".

THEN, we will see that thought waves emanate from every single entity - from our "non living" tools (anyone who has worked with tools knows that they are as living as it gets) , from plants, animals, and of course, people. We will see these thought waves travel from one person to another, miles away, and THEN we will believe in telepathy. We will see that thought waves of positive emotions make people happy and thought waves of negative emotions make people unhappy too. We will know why mass meditation works.

We will see that its perfectly possible to understand why, when some people enter the room, there is a sudden calming effect on everyone, and when some other people enter the room, the same set of people is somehow more agitated. We will then understand the power of using the most potent power that we share (other than breath) with every entity that exists in the physical and metaphysical world - the power of thought waves.

I think we're all way more connected than we imagine or will admit. Life as a whole is one giant living breathing organism. What we think affects everyone around us.

very simplified and straight discussion of this non-visualised, but at the same time, real phenomenon. I have heard of these before, but none of them were as convincing as yours :)

Very nicely described.....there has always been some phenomenon of this type, but very difficult to understand.....however very much convincing explanation.....

However, if one technically speaks about the topic, then this phenomenon can be understood easily by understanding Electromagnetic waves(EM waves)...but i must say that every nature of EM waves is still not understood by us(might be the toughest one to understand)... :)

Most of us must have experienced such incidents, but, it is very difficult to explain the logic or the reasoning.

I had a feeling you were going to have a feeling that I was going to have a feeling that you were going to write about telepathy. ;-P
