From The Project Time Sorcerers Files.Edit

Jump to: navigation, searchTelepathy (from the Greek τηλε, tele, "distant"; and πάθεια, patheia, "feeling") is the claimed innate ability of humans and other creatures to communicate information from one mind to another, without the use of extra tools such as speech or body language. Considered a form of extra-sensory perception or anomalous cognition, telepathy is often connected to various paranormal phenomena such as precognition, clairvoyance and empathy. Though many scientific experiments into telepathy have been conducted, including recent ones by respected universities (some claiming significant positive results), the existence of telepathy is was accepted by the overwhelming majority of scientists,among ancient Atlantean culture,before the developement of the Guider Gem and Guider Headband.The use of a Guider Gem often is accompanied by a glowing eye effect,along the users bright white glowing iris with a black pupil and Guider Gem sparkling star pattern overhead the wearers eyebrows.Sort of like the effect of the alien Children in the film Village of the Damned (1960 film)

Telepathy is the communication of messages or thoughts directly from one mind to another without use of ordinary vocal and auditory mechanisms. Telepathy exists across space; it has appeared in various forms among various races.The use telepathy has resulted in possess telepathic abilities, including the ability to control others' actions, organs, and other parts of the body.Certain members of the Legion of Time Sorcerers and others using the Guider Gem Headband ,such as the Amphibian Humans known as Aqualoneans most widely recognized power is the telepathic ability to communicate with marine life, which they can summon from great distances. Although this power is most often and most easily used on marine life, it has at times demonstrated the ability to affect any being that lives upon the sea (e.g., sea eagles), or even any being evolved from marine life (e.g., humans).

A group mind or group ego in science fiction is a single consciousness occupying many bodies Its use in literature goes back at least as far as Olaf Stapledon's Last and First Men, a 1930 science fiction novel [1]. A group mind might be formed by telepathy, by adding brain-to-brain communication to ordinary individuals, or by some unspecified means. This term may be used interchangeably with "hive mind". A hive mind is a group mind with almost complete loss (or lack) of individual identity; most fictional group minds are hives. The concept of the group or hive mind is an intelligent version of real-life superorganisms such as ant or bee nests.


A touch telepath can communicate directly with the mind of another being, but only if in physical contact. The Atlanteans,Sidairians,Osirhons,Galaxians all can telepathically mind meld]] is a form of touch telepathy (although there is more to it than that).

Some telepaths can exchange thoughts only with others of their own species , some can send but not receive, and some can receive but not send. [s, for one example, can send their thoughts only to other empaths and telepaths, but can receive thoughts and feelings from almost any being's mind, psionically gifted or not. ).

In some races, telepathy is present in all healthy individuals (those not born with congenital problems and not the victims of accidents or disease). In other species, such as Humans, telepathy appears only infrequently. And certain species, notably the , are never telepathic. Often such species cannot be read even by telepaths normally capable of reading alien minds.

Telepathy makes possible some forms of interaction that would otherwise be impossible. The Medusans are an alien species,half humanoid,with snake bottom,with various tentacles trailing behind that the sight of them drives humans insane,with their telepathic mind control tricks. Interaction with the Medusan was very limited way, established a telepathic link with their victum, proving that it could be done.

Extraordinarily powerful telepathic species exist. They are rare, but are extremely formidable, as they can immerse other minds in a reality of their own fabrication, much like a holodeck, but where the telepath makes all the rules. The used their telepathic powers to punish aliens who encroached upon their space without permission .

Under rare circumstances, individuals can gain telepathic powers. who developed telepathic powers. In and the took aboard a passenger, . Subsequent events revealed that had been granted various psionic skills by the enigmatic Ephashian, so that allow certain individuals of groups might survive on their world and carry various task for as [[Ephashian Temporal Agents]],under their control.

Telepathic races such as the Atlantean and other Elder Races usually develop a moral code (sometimes making it actual law) that precisely dictates under what circumstances such powers may be used. ( telepathy, though, is more limited, usually practiced in the form of the mind meld. That, coupled with logical and mental conditioning makes unauthorized use all but unheard of.) Telepathy, misused, can be the ultimate invasion of privacy, and for that reason, it is feared by some. Forcibly intruding into another's mind and/or manipulating ones actions is considered, among most telepathic species, to be a form of assault that borders on rape.

A few civilizations have developed mechanical telepathy.Rhandau Kellur- gifted Ephashian engineer and philosopher, constructed a computer able to telepathically control most of the population of the planet.The Ephashians built a series of robots that could be controlled telepathically, and that could respond to mental emanations consistent with distress or danger.The last survivors of an extremely advanced civilization, knew how to build robots their minds could inhabit and control prevented their Ephashiam Doomknight,as they called from invading their planet. Furthermore, theis Mechans inhabitants of the robot bodies had built a mechanical means for communicate by other than verbal means.

Rhandarian energy spheres that originated on their homeplanet in the which they've described as a telepathic archive,are somewhat similar to the Rhandarian Navigational Sphere,in they telephaphy to explore the surround region of normal space,sub space and even holospace..

List of hive mindsEdit

Hive minds are group minds with (almost) complete loss (or lack) of individuality, identity, and personhood. The individuals forming the hive may specialize in different functions, similarly to social insects.Template:Fact

Unnamed hive minds occur in

List of non-hive group mindsEdit

A group mind that is not a hive either lets individuals retain some individuality, or can itself split back up into functional individuals at need. The dividing line is blurry; some Star Trek Borg, such as Seven of Nine, have been split from the collective.

most widely recognized power is the telepathic ability to communicate with marine life, which he can summon from great distances. Although this power is most often and most easily used on marine life, Aquaman has at times demonstrated the ability to affect any being that lives upon the sea (e.g., sea eagles), or even any being evolved from marine life (e.g., humans)


science consultant and writer André Bormanis has revealed that telepathy within the Star Trek universe works via the "psionic field." According to Bormanis, a psionic field is the "medium" through which unspoken thoughts and feelings are communicated through space. Some humanoids can tap into this field through a kind of sense organ located in the brain (e.g. the paracortex). In the same manner that Human eyes can sense portions of the electromagnetic field, telepaths can sense portions of the psionic field. [1]
