Telepathy experiments with identical twins

Update:The following site has now been changed to a totally different site and is unrelated to the previous website about which I write below in any way.

One of my favorite websites, (Update: doesn’t exist anymore), posted an article about telepathy in identical twins. The article points to 2 experiments that took place in the last couple of years to verify telepathy.

In both experiments the twins, children, were separated into different spaces. One was wired to a ‘lie detector’ machine (the receiver end of telepathy link), while the other was used as the source of the link. The ‘receiver‘ or the lie-detector machine operator weren’t aware of what will be the stimulus for the ‘transmitter‘.

The transmitting children were taken to another room where they were subjected to strong feelings. In one case, a child submerged his hand into ice-cold water. On another time he was being frightened by a sudden rubber snake coming at him. At both of these moments, spikes were recorded in the ‘receiving’ twin brother. A similar experiment was performed with another pair of twins at another time.

Although both of these experiments were filmed for a TV show and were not under strict scientific conditions, it seems that the overall setup was adequate and the chances of them being a coincidence are just in one in a billions range.

It is overall known that twins and also mothers and their children have stronger telepathy connection that ordinary people. I have had such events in my life and was told of similar experiences from my family members.

Have you ever encountered family telepathy on any level?

  1. I am not a twin, although the identical twins that I have known all agree that there have been times when they have responded to something that is happening to their twin when that twin was absent and they couldn’t have known what was happening to them.

    As a mother, I have experienced this phenomenon myself. The first times were when my first son was born. He developed an infection and was in a special care baby unit for the first week of his life. The unit was three floors below my room and yet *every time* my baby randomly woke up during the day or night, I knew, and was sitting at the door ready to go down to breast feed him when the nurse called up for me. The urge to go to him was even strong enough to wake me from a deep sleep.

    Knowing when he needed me continued very strongly and he was 5 or 6 before it began to lessen. On one occasion, when he was three, I was with some of the other mums in the kitchen at a birthday party when I suddenly couldn’t breathe. I rushed through to find him and a much older boy had sneaked him into a bedroom under a pretext and was trying to strangle him. My son was blue in the face and passing out.

    Though not always so dramatic, this happened so often that it couldn’t have been coincidence, and although it did get less, I still know when things are going badly or well for him, even when I haven’t seen him for a while. It happened with my second son, too.

    • Do you think that twin telepathy could have a social/health impact? Meaning could finding more about twin telepathy be useful to scientists, or even average people? Why?
      PS–This is for a grade 10 project. 🙂


      • i am also in grade 10, and doing a project on twins too 😛 just thought i’d ask you politely to send me your project?
        worth a shot 😀 hahaha
