The Case Against Human Telepathy
I read a science fiction story once that made a pretty good case
against human telepathy. The telepathic aliens, with plans to take
over the Earth, captured a man and spent months translating his brain
radiations into something they could understand and control. But then
they found that they had to start all over again with the next person.
Humans, not being telepathic to start with (as other conquered races
had been), each developed their synapse paths and thought patterns
independently and differently. (Sounds a little like the computer
industry doesn't it?). Just for each of us to translate the surface
thoughts into words require a major project. Verbal communication was
a rather late evolutionary development. Is their really any better way
to communicate than speech and writing, and maybe body language?
Send me your thoughts.
