Food for Thought


THE evidence in favour of telepathic communication (supra-normal cognition or extra-sensory perception) is now enough, and more than enough, to convince any reasonable inquirer, and it may be time to consider theories to explain how it happens. A theory of physical transmission from agent to recipient, that is capable of experimental test by ordinary methods of scientific investigation, is to be preferred if it is at all possible, to any theory that cannot be tested in this way. Indeed, for those who hold that everything must have a physical explanation, such a theory is urgently needed.
