Have you ever dreamt about talking to someone, well that might not only be a dream but an actual conversation. Dream telepathy isn't a new concept, but some facts and evidences back it now. Scientists have found something that takes us a step closer to it.
Read on to know more.
It is the ability to communicate telepathically with another person while one is dreaming.
Stanley Krippner, professor of psychology at the Saybrook University of California says, "A wealth of anecdotal and clinical material exist which supports the possibility of telepathic effects occurring in dreams (Krippner, 1974). However, an experimental approach to the topic did not become possible until psychophysiological laboratory technology became available."
"It was discovered that sleeping research participants awakened from periods of rapid eye movement (REM) activity were frequently able to recall dream episodes. As a result, it was possible to request a "telepathic receiver" to attempt dreaming about a target stimulus that was being focused on at a distant location from a telepathic sender."
In the mid-1960's, Montague Ullman, MD, started various examinations at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York to test the speculation that individuals could be prepared to dream about arbitrarily chosen material.
At the end of the day, they could pick what they needed to dream about before going to rest, and this could incorporate anything, from fine art to motion pictures to photos and then some. Soon after these examinations started, Ullman was joined by Stanley Krippner, who has an extremely great foundation in the experimental investigation of dreams, brain science, and parapsychology.
They met in the research facility for a brief time frame before being put in totally isolated rooms just before going to rest. The clairvoyant sender had an envelope sitting tight for them in the room in which they'd rest. It would contain something like a photo or a drawing.
The receivers were then purposely awakened shortly after Rapid Eye Movement sleep (REM) began so the researchers could take a dream report.
The selected art print was "School of Dance" by Edgar Degas, that depicts a several young women in a dance class. According to Krippner, the receivers' dream reports included phrases like "I was in a class made up of maybe half a dozen people, it felt like a school," and "There was one little girl that was trying to dance with me."
Einstein called it "Spooky actions at a distance". If two electrons were created together, and if one was sent to a far-off end of the universe, they would still respond instantly, no matter how much the distance between them.
We might be having some real dream telepathy soon now. Excited?
