Are we humans becoming Telepathic?

Sure we have our hand signals.Facal expressions. But sometimes we just look at each other and know what each other is thinking . It's happening at lot more these days. I noticed this with my girlfriend,it seems to happen more often with someone you love. But elsewhere also. Especially with used car salesmen lol.

It depends how you define telepathic. It may well be a useful survival characteristic on the verge of development. I have had experiences which tend to confirm this.
On the other hand, there are occasions when people think of the same thing at the same time. This is not thought transfer - it may be our programming just arriving at the same conclusion at the same time.

Many years ago, near England's M1. (remember?) a group of us used to meet up regularly to discuss and experiment with such things. I found it extremely interesting but, by the nature of things, scientific proof is hard to assemble.

There are people who have passed all the test being done on them to determine this. Using cards with numbers or colors on them.Clairvoyant really isn't the word to use, it relates to something entirely different.
It would be handy to have in a poker game . 🙂

If it were possible it would be something very handy in Space exploration. Like a bad feeling you get when doing something.
Maybe that's only caution,self preservation.

It might be, that we are just not quite there yet. 1. Understanding it yet 2. What to do with it once we do. 3. A developing sense ?
Some think that certain animals have it, like Dogs. Evolution is a very tricky subject. A need in some species, it may be subtile, or come on quickly.

"Evolution is a very tricky subject."

Why is this? Surely 'survival characteristics' are more likely to result in survival?

Unfortunately, overpopulation is not a survival characteristic. We shall doubtless find that out in the next 50 years, unless we are lucky enough to be trimmed down a bit by some intervention of Nature?

Yeah, another ice age , Texas got a preview of this last winter, not just cold,but frozen all the way down to the gulf coast.

Fortunately, humans are not telepathic and most likely will not evolve telepathy. I for one would be spending most of my life in jail or involved in confrontations if those "nasty, evil thoughts" were readily broadcast. Smiling and pleasantries no matter the level of dislike are survival traits. As for Texas; those folks via their politicians bought into the alternative, green energy schpiel and cut back on fossil fuel energy generation capacity. It is beyond my imagination what "thoughts" Texans had at that cold time about their politicians and power companies. Perhaps such is best unknown.

Most of those who do exibit signs of this are regarded as a spastic. "Rain Man" , who was booted out of a casino with his brother.
Autistic. 80k is a lot of money to win. Wouldnt you take him with you to a casino?

Is not studying the human brain not scientific ? NASA thinks so. it's called preemptive events. Some people don't give humans enough credit for how smart we really are . So it's dumbed down or dismissed entirely. The human brain is what created science.

I find that dogs and horses can "read" me and my emotions to greater and to a more accurate degree than I can "read" theirs and those of other humans. We are arrogant about are so called "smarts".

There are some people that have been able to do a lot of things that were out of the ordinary. As children we are taught
this and that about what is real and what isn't. Childhood innocence is lost to what is considered as the normal.
Example: is Santa Clause real? Maybe not in the physical but in the imaginations of small children, literature, legend,
Movies, etc. So doesn't that makes him real ? At least in one sense.

I don't think we have really touched on what we know about the human brain. Other than the physical aspect.
You ever think you faintly hear some music? But don't know where it's coming from. The electro magnetic spectrum
is full of differant wavelengths. Do our brains have its own? Yes, we know how to test it for activity.
My SIL is a shrink over in Dallas, we chat about this in family get togethers. To talk about it in a logical way
is very normal. That's called curiosity. Are mind readers real? It's a distinct possibility.

Thinking the same is a part of an evolutionary long developed thing.
Humans, being tribal and staying close for a certain period have even physical processes happening in the same time.
As long as somebody sharing same experience during long time, no surprise that same thoughts (even not simple ones) are coming instantly together.

Regarding thoughts delivery from one brain to another, there are undergoing researches and some results.
Still even sharing a bit of information is and enormous effort.

We Humans are pretty good with those hand signals. It's almost a language of it's own. It is for people who are deaf. On an Aircraft Carrier flight deck it's what they use. It's sort of universal on the seas.

Seriously, Clovis, I was one of the 'Luton Group' which met very regularly to discuss and experiment in such things as telepathy. As I scientist, I could not claim that such things can be reproduced to order, but I did experience things which were not explicable by conventional science.

We communicate messages unconsciously through our body language, tone, and facial expressions, among other things. People are really good at noticing these things. In fact, we have 'mirror neurons,' which allow us to experience what the other person is going through. That, however, has nothing supernatural to do with it. It's just the evolution of a species in which social contact and cohesion were crucial.

Evolution might be slower than technology in its development tempo, but it is already there :)
There are physical processes that start to go synchronized when species live long enough in close community (humans, animals, not sure about microbes, but they should be faster with that chemistry).

I think we should be exploring the full extent of what "ordinary" senses and means of communication can do before rushing to telepathy to explain anything. In humans the ability to "read" tiny facial movements, gestures, shifts in voice tone and so on is real - even if lacking absolute reliability. The upside of a powerful brain that can imagine vast arrays of possibilities is it helps find one that fits with limited sensory evidence and is likely to be true. The downside is imagining possibilities that aren't true and believing them. I suspect when we get it right and it is confirmed we remember that better than the times we got it wrong - ie we aren't being objective.

Fortunately, humans are not telepathic and most likely will not evolve telepathy. I for one would be spending most of my life in jail or involved in confrontations if those "nasty, evil thoughts" were readily broadcast. Smiling and pleasantries no matter the level of dislike are survival traits.
Yes, not necessarily a bad thing that people can't read each others minds. Something to be said for being polite too - especially when disagreeing.

From Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide) - "Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation."

Do we accept flocks of birds or deer turning "as one" in mid flight/motion as telepathy?
There is emerging understanding of how birds move in a flock for example - which birds instigate it, how the others recognise and respond; it isn't instantaneous and doesn't appear to require telepathy.

I think the idea of telepathy appeals to our over-imaginative brains, that comes up with explanations like that for understanding successful non-verbal communications more readily than it can come up with science based explanations.
