This wasn't the first time I'd made a comment about what my fiancé was thinking. We even joke that I can read his mind sometimes. But can thoughts or memories be transferred from one person to another? I've often pondered about telepathy since I read The Giver by Lois Lowry in 6th grade.
I don't know if telepathy is real but I do think it's possible. Why does a cynical physics major think it's possible? Because of things like this:
The brain uses electricity, so it is sending out an electrical signal. This is quite a new technology and will be exceptionally useful for amputee patients. However, it's not perfect. Since every person thinks a little differently, you can't just hook up to the machine and awesome away. You have to train your mind to use it. Just like someone going through physical therapy after a stroke.
So, I think it might be possible for someone to be able to pick up another's thoughts under certain circumstances.
