Naked Science – Telepathy


2005 Documentary – Naked Science Season 2 – Telepathy Naked Science is an American documentary television series that premiered in 2004 on the National Geographic Channel. The programme features various subjects related to science and technology. Does telepathy exist? Scientists have argued for years about the existence of telepathy, the claimed ability to transmit words or thoughts to another mind outside of the channels of the recognized senses. Sceptics insist that humans possess no such power, but fail to provide answers for many phenomena suggesting that direct transmission can, and does, take place. Now Naked Science investigates this mysterious sixth sense and commissions new experiments to find an answer to this age-old question, does telepathy exist? Unsubstantiated claims are not proof, so several experiments are conducted to put the phenomenon to the test. This includes exploring the telepathic connection that some twins claim to experience through a series of tests on one twin and recording the other twin’s reaction, and a Ganzfeld test where a person in one room attempts to transmit mental pictures to another person in a different room.
