The Stages of Telepathic Cognition

Theresa M. Kelly, MsD.


Professor of Scientific Parapsychology, Researcher, Technical Author

Telepathy is the psychical influence of thought via experient influence over the biological basis of consciousness and the mental process by which we perceive, act, learn and remember; Including mental forms and processes such as the nervous system in which processes and transmits information by electrochemical signaling.

In regards to intentional telepathic cognitive techniques, several stages are assumed to exist through which the telepathist acquires information. During spontaneous (non-intentional) telepathic cognition, these processes are assumed to run automatically via the subconscious.

However, since the processes are run subconsciously, there is no conscious directive.  To obtain a level of conscious direction, the telepathist is assumed to require achieving each step in order to perform successfully.

  1. Stage 1 of the telepathic cognitive process involves initiation, i.e. the telepathist recognizes his or her need for information consciously, and therefore subconsciously.

  2. Stage 2 involves selection, i.e. the telepathist begins to decide what topic will be investigated, and whom the subject will be. Selection techniques vary per the limitation of the telepathist.

  3. Stage 3 involves exploration, i.e. the telepathist begins to gather information on the decided topic, and new knowledge comes into knowing (i.e. conscious awareness). The telepathist then associates the new information with information previously known in regards to the topic.

  4. Stage 4 involves formulation, i.e. the telepathist begins to evaluate the information that has been gathered.

  5. Stage 5 involves collection, i.e. the telepathist now “knows” the information he or she set out to gather.

  6. The final Stage 6 involves search closure, i.e. the telepathist has completed his or her search for information, and will continue by summarizing the information that was found via the exploratory search process, which involves mind mapping.

Selection techniques include, but are not limited to; eye to eye contact, touch, spatial proximity, or the use of an electronic medium (e.g. phone or computer; real-time programs such as chat or internet phone).

Telepathic cognitive processes (ESP processes in general) appear limited to exploratory search parameters. Exploratory search is a specialization of information exploration in which represents the activities carried out by telepathists. Exploratory search includes a broad class of activities for the telepathist to implement including investigating, evaluating, comparing, and synthesizing.
