In a groundbreaking scientific breakthrough that rivals Alexander Graham Bell’s first phone call or Guglielmo Marconi’s first radio broadcast, scientists have successfully achieved brain-to-brain transmission and telepathy of information between human beings.
“The question became, ‘Could we develop an experiment that would bypass the talking or typing part of the internet and establish direct brain-to-brain communication between subjects located far away from each other?’”
A determined team of scientists from Harvard University Medical School and experts from France and Spain managed to send messages roughly 5,000 miles from India to France without any invasive surgery on the four subjects, aged between 28 and 50. The results have just been printed in science journal Plos One.
The only subject, the emitter, was hooked up to electrodes and shown words translated into binary, which they entered into a computer by moving a white circle to different parts of the screen with their thoughts, such as the top right corner for one and the bottom right for zero.
The code was uploaded and then relayed to the receiver thousands of miles away who was fitted with a device that emits electrical pulses through the receiver’s head via a robotic arm in a series of ‘flashes’ called phosphenes. The flashes were sent to different parts of the receivers’ skulls which allowed them to differentiate between one’s and zero’s.
The messages were successfully interpreted as ‘Hola’ and ‘Ciao.’
Harvard’s Alvaro Pascual-Leone said in a press release quoted by Sky News: “We want to find out if one could communicate directly between two people by reading out the brain activity from one person and injecting brain activity into the second person, and do so across great physical distances by leveraging existing communication pathways.
Although this is still the first stage, the breakthrough could open the gateway to a whole new method of communication, making it potentially one of the most exciting scientific developments in recent times. For the time being the process is prohibitively slow for conversation, but it may be immensely valuable in communication with stroke patients.
Telepathy, Scientist Prove Is Real.
