The Stages of Telepathic Cognition
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.
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.
