Telepathy

I wonder how many people understand that weve achieved telepathy.

Thanks to the internet, I can sympathize with a friend who is far away, type a message of care and sending along a {{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}}}}.

My friend receives this message and feels good knowing someone cares.

So we use computers. We humans use tools.

Getting the message across to my friend is the important thing. If using a machine lets me do this, then Im a happy camper.

I've been using telepathy for years...I think about calling Mom and she calls me...okay, so I'm lazy...making Mom do all the work.

Exactly. I do believe we have a mental bond with certain people, especially a parent.

Some people you can connect to almost all the time, like a best friend. Having a mate like that is great.

James has a tendency to point and grunt (kind of like a toddler!), and I am always telling him that he needs to use sentences because I can't read his mind. Of course, like most wives and mothers, I can "read his mind" to a point, but I don't want him to know this. Actually I read an article the other day about how women have been designed to be able to read needs (why is the baby crying, is my teenager upset or angry about something, etc.), so "mind reading" is kind of a natural for us--as I said, to a point.

I'm forever telling patients they need to use the call light and ask, because I can't read minds. 1:1 I can usually tell what is needed, but when they are all in their rooms and there are 28 of them...the telepathy thing breaks down.

Exactly why I can't stand being in crowds. Really unhappy people broadcast (LOUDLY).

It's not in words, it's the emotions. Talk about a few rotten apples. It also explains "mob mentality".
