Amazing Right Brain Telepathy Tales
 

We must postulate a cosmic order of nature beyond our control to which both the outward material objects and the inward images are subject. Nobel Laureate quantum theorist Wolfgang Pauli.
 
Yes, I think telepathy exists and I think quantum physics will help us understand its basic properties. Nobel Laureate Dr. Brian Josephson.
 
As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter. Nobel Laureate Max Planck.
 
 
There are countless stories of savants who can do unbelievable calculations and instantaneous counting in their head faster than computers. In the past how they did it was a total mystery, but that is changing. Now many non-verbal autistic people are able to communicate using computer keyboards and stencils.
 
What we are learning is that the savant is not using a left brain function to calculate or count.  The answer is appearing in the savant’s mind indicating some sort of right brained telepathic process.
 
This new understanding coincides with the physical diagnosis that most savants suffer from some sort of left brain impairment, implying no abilities to calculate. This is further supported by the observation that those who exhibit the best savant telepathic abilities seem to be the non-verbal subjects where the left brain is most severe exhibited by left brain speech damage. Therefore the shutting down of the left brain, that helps us operate in the physical world, would allow the right brain to become dominant and access information from some sort of non-local matrix.
 
Daniel Tammet is one of the calculating savants who is able to describe what goes on in his head when he calculates. He confirmed that the process does not involve calculation but rather waiting for the answer to appear as an image in his head. In his book Born on a Blue Day Tammet described what goes on in his head when he multiplies. Tammet has synesthesia where he sees color, shape, texture, and taste when he experiences numbers. He gave an example of how he multiplies two complex numbers together and how the answer downloads into his mind. When he sees the numbers 53 and 131 he sees distinct shapes associated with the numbers.




As soon as he makes the decision to multiply them together a third shape appears which fits neatly between the two other shapes like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. That shape has a number associated with it 6943 which Tammet recognizes. It is the answer.
 

 
Tammet is quite clear in what happens in his head. The answers to the complex math he is asked to do pops into his head like a right brain telepathic download. He does not do any left brain calculating.
 
Another important aspect of the Tammet story is his connection to prime numbers (numbers divisible only by one and the number itself) which many savants are fascinated with. The Sacks Twins, for example, (described below) could go back and forth between themselves and identify 6 and 7 digit prime numbers in sequence even though there is no real way to calculate prime numbers. In Tammet’s experience with primes he sees a prime number as having a pebbly appearance when it appears in his head. This would confirm it is not some sort of calculated left brain operation but some sort of right brained download or the ability to tap into a field where all the prime numbers are stored.
 
Another savant who adds to this telepathic story is Zacharias Dase – Dase was a 19th century mathematical savant who suffered from epilepsy from early childhood. He had an almost legendary ability to do complex calculations even involving 100 digit numbers.
 
He multiplied and divided large numbers in his head, but when the numbers were very large he required considerable time. Schumacher once gave him the numbers 79532853 and 93758479 to be multiplied. From the moment in which they were given to the moment when he had written down the answer, which he had reckoned out in his head, there elapsed 54 seconds. He multiplied mentally two numbers each of 20 figures in 6 minutes; 40 figures in 40 minutes; and 100 figures in 83/4 hours, which last calculation must have made his exhibitions somewhat tiresome to the onlookers. He extracted mentally the square roots of a number of 100 figures in 52 minutes.[1]
 
One of the amazing abilities Dase had was the ability to count items almost instantaneously.
 
He had one ability not present to such a degree in other ready reckoners. He could distinguish some thirty objects of a similar nature in a single moment as easily as other people can recognize three or four. The rapidity with which he would name the number of sheep in a herd, of books in a book-case, of window-panes in a large house, was even more remarkable than the accuracy of his mental calculations.
 
Once again this ability appears not to have been logical left brained function, but rather a right brained telepathic ability, as illustrated by the another story told about Dase counting peas. Dase “who would instantly call out '183' or '79' if a pile of peas was poured out, and indicate as best he could - he was also a dullard - that he did not count the peas, but just 'saw' their number, as a whole, in a flash.”[2]                   
 
The very same ability to instantly count was seen in the Sacks Twins. John and Michael were savant twins that psychiatrist Oliver Sacks met and studied in 1966 in a state hospital. A video of them in action can be seen at

Although they could not do logical left brain mathematics like 7 x 4, or 10 – 3, they were able to exhibit right brained telepathic type abilities such as giving the day of the week for any date in history, and instantly count. This instantaneous counting became part of the movie Rain Man where the autistic savant Raymond instantly counts 246 toothpicks that fall from a toothpick box in a restaurant.
 
The true story that the movie story was based on occurred by the twins in the presence of Dr. Sacks and he described it as follows,
 
A box of matches on their table fell, and discharged its contents on the floor: '111,' they both cried simultaneously; and then, in a murmur, John said '37'. Michael repeated this, John said it a third time and stopped. I counted the matches - it took me some time - and there were 111.
 
 'How could you count the matches so quickly?' I asked. 'We didn't count,' they said. 'We saw the 111.'
 
'And why did you murmur '37', and repeat it three times?' I asked the twins. They said in unison, '37, 37, 37, 111'.
 
 And this, if possible, I found even more puzzling. That they should see 111 - '111-ness' - in a flash was extraordinary…But they had then gone on to 'factor' the number 111 - without having any method, without even 'knowing' (in the ordinary way) what factors meant. Had I not already observed that they were incapable of the simplest calculations, and didn't 'understand' (or seem to understand) what multiplication or division was? Yet now, spontaneously, they had divided a compound number into three equal parts.
 
'How did you work that out?' I said, rather hotly. They indicated, as best they could, in poor, insufficient terms - but perhaps there are no words to correspond to such things - that they did no 'work it out', but just 'saw' it, in a flash. John made a gesture with two outstretched fingers and his thumb, which seemed to suggest that they had spontaneously trisected the number, or that it 'came apart' of its own accord, into these three equal parts, by a sort of spontaneous, numerical 'fission'. They seemed surprised at my surprise - as if I were somehow blind; and John's gesture conveyed an extraordinary sense of immediate, felt reality. Is it possible, I said to myself, that they can somehow 'see' the properties, not in a conceptual, abstract way, but as qualities, felt, sensuous, in some immediate, concrete way? And not simply isolated qualities - like '111-ness' - but qualities of relationship?[3]
 
The final example of this telepathic ability comes from a non-verbal autistic girl by the name of Haley who was a test subject for psychiatrist-neuroscientist Dr. Diane Powell. The fact that Haley’s left brain non-verbal centers were not operational provides strong evidence of the telepathic ability being accessed by the right brain. (There are a series of young children around the world who have been identified with this pure telepathic ability).
 
During the 2014 testing that Powell administered to Haley, were a series of random numbers Haley was asked to read from the mind of one of Haley’s therapy workers. The therapist was behind a divider out of view of Haley looking at the telepathic targets. In a series of target numbers that totaled 162 digits were given to Haley. She was able to correctly read all the numbers from the therapist mind on the second try. Haley was also able to correctly telepathically pick up sentences, images, made-up words, and foreign language in the therapist’s mind.
 
In another series Haley was asked to telepathically read complex mathematical questions from the therapist’s mind. One of ten formulas she was given and gave back with complete accuracy was,
 
1513347 / 35 = 43238.4857
 
The theory of what is going appears to be the ability of the savant to telepathically tap into some sort of non-local morphic field and obtain the answer to the equation, the calendar date, or the instant count of items without having to count. The idea of morphic fields and their ability to provide non-local information comes from the research of former Cambridge professor Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. To explain how this information might be obtained from the morphic field Sheldrake referred to experiments such as those conducted on rats starting in 1920 by William McDougall at Harvard that illustrate the concept of morphic fields which “organize the form, structure and patterned interactions of systems under their influence.”
 
The experiments were set up to study the possibility of Lamarckian inheritance. McDougall used carefully inbred Wistar rats that were trained to run a water maze and the number of errors made by a rat before it learned to leave the tank indicated the rate of learning. The tests continued for 32 generations and 15 years. Each generation was bred only after being tested to prevent any possibility of conscious or unconscious selection in favor of quicker-learning rats.
 
The Lamarckian theory seemed to be confirmed as each generation appeared to learn faster making less and less mistakes before learning to run the maze.
 
Despite McDougall’s techniques to prevent bias as with many new scientific research skeptics arose such as F.A.E. Crew, of Edinburgh University, (later also W. E. Agar and his colleagues at Melbourne University) who years later repeated McDougall's experiment with rats derived from the same inbred strain but unrelated to the Harvard rats. What Crew discovered in that the untrained rats made the same number of mistakes as the Harvard rats in their first attempts as the Harvard rats after 30 generations. A considerable number went through the maze without making a similar mistake.[4]
 
It appeared from the results that the unrelated rats had somehow picked up the knowledge that had been accumulated by the Harvard rats, and as they were not related the information was not coming from a hereditary factor.
 
The morphic field idea, however, maybe an idea, that like the abolition of slavery, women’s right to vote, African-Americans using white bathrooms, smoking in public, uncontrolled toxic dumping into public rivers, and gay rights, may be a few years off.
 
Those in control science are not about to take their failed ideas quietly into the night. In a flashback to the burning at the stake of Giordano Bruno in 1600 for his views, described as heresy, that the universe was infinite and that stars were distant suns with their own planets and extraterrestrial beings, John Maddox, the long-time editor of Nature, is on record as having called Sheldrake’s views “heresy” that deserved to be “condemned.” He added about Sheldrake’s 1981 book A New Science of Life, “while it's wrong that books should be burned, in practice, if book burning were allowed, this book would be a candidate (...) I think it's dangerous that people should be allowed by our liberal societies to put that kind of nonsense into currency.”[5] Fortunately for Sheldrake, Maddox did not call for Sheldrake to be burned at the stake.
 
The day will come when morphic fields and ESP will become accepted ideas in science. Maddox will be wrong as he was when in 1983 he wrote that there was “"No Need for Panic about AIDS". He wrote that "for strictly prophylactic purposes, male homosexuals should be persuaded to change their ways...The pathetic promiscuity of male homosexuals is the most obvious threat to public health, but is probably no more serious now than it was before homosexuality ceased to be illegal." He described AIDS as a "perhaps non-existent condition".[6]
