"Telephone Telepathy"

Do you believe in so-called "Telephone Telepathy"?

I am on the fence for this one. You may have watched something the other would like to know about, or be planning to meet up, or have a mutual reason to call. Or there could be some kind of connection as the reasons I stated wouldn't work within the experiments.

If they kept performing experiments with similar results, would you ever change your opinion?

Thier planning to keep up thier experiments, as good scientists should.

Something weird like that is possible. Scientists have done tests were they have given people current newspapers for them to do the crossword puzzles. Then they would give day old newspapers (not the same group) and the scorings for the day old newspapers went up about 30%. This has been repeated several times with almost the same results. Almost makes you wonder if there is some sort of subconsious connection between humans...

Every once in a while, the thoughts you think are your own turn out to be the exact same thoughts someone else is having at that moment... (I've seen it happen.)

There are telepaths you can call, and they'll heal you. You don't have to actually come and see them, they do it remotely. I think that's kinda neat. Worth the money as well.
