Reply To: What is Telepathy?


The term “Telepathy” is a combination of Tele (Distant) + Pathy (Feeling), and thus, it means “Distant Feeling”. The term “Telepathy” was coined by Frederic Myers. The definition of Telepathy can be stated as follows – the communication or transfer of impressions of any kind (thoughts, feelings, etc.) from one mind to another, without the intermediation of the recognized channels of senses. The terms that are often used for Telepathy include, viz. – Thought Reading, Thought Transference, Mind Reading, Mental Telegraphy, Mental Telepathy, and Mind to Mind Communication. Telepathy, itself, is a part of a wider phenomenon known as ESP or Extrasensory Perception. ESP (Extrasensory Perception) includes the phenomena of Telepathy, Clairvoyance, and Precognition.
