Check out Corinthians Countree’s commented on my 3/8/2010 blog. She wrote: A locked-in person is moving a cursor to punch a keyboard; a monkey is feeding itself with a robot arm like it is its own. Both the researchers and the public are using terminology analogous with telepathy. Telepathy or telekinesis? Do we have a thinking problem?
I’d love for Corinthians to elaborate on her question. To me telepathy means the direct communication of thoughts and feelings between people's minds, without the need to use speech, writing, or any other normal signals. Telekinesis is the power to move something by thinking about it without the application of physical force.
