Having recently taken an interest in the possibility of the existence of psychic phenomena, although I have yet to make up my mind as to whether they actually exist, I thought it might be an idea to try an experiment here on HubPages, to test for such abilities.
I have the idea that one person could think of an image, and then try and project it, via telepathy, in the hope that someone else might be able to pick up on it. Maybe it would be an idea to allow for a certain number of people to guess, say 5, before the sender of the image says whether it has been guessed correctly. Whether it has or not, someone else could then have a go at projecting an image.
I think it should become obvious quite quickly, if the experiment has been successful or not. And it would have to rely on the person projecting the image being truthful as to whether anyone had picked up on the image.
The image could be of a well-known work of art, or a place, or a household object, or an animal - in fact anything at all.
I hope this doesn't seem too far-fetched, and it is only meant as a sort of game, so nothing to be taken too seriously. If anyone feels they want to try it, you could post, saying that you have thought of an image, and then see what happens.
I'm too tired to sit here any longer attempting projection... I don't even know what that would feel like,
I was thinking of a 2-liter soda bottle.
I would imagine that projection to strangers through the internet could be more difficult than projecting to someone in person, but someone else can have a go at it.
Haha, don't hate me for not picking one thing. Trying to clear my mind I had thoughts of a key and a plane. After clearing my mind the first thing that came to mind was a ruler, or something shaped like it.
OK, folks. I am thinking of a single-digit, positive number. I have written it down and am staring at it for precisely one minute.
What is that number? I will post it in a minute or two.
I am replying to my own post so as to not see any of the answers (if there are any). The number I was thinking of is 6.
No, it doesn't look like this will work. I was thinking of the Mona Lisa
So, there are no Uri Gellers amongst us - thank goodness.
I had completely misread this thread and was replying to PDS's post, whom I might add, had already given the answer. There is clearly no hope for me.
I think it would be much more interesting to do this in person... at least that way you can feel like you're trying to tell something to a person, rather than just putting something 'out there' for someone else to pick up.
There is also a negative to doing this in person. There will always be the possibility that seeing the person who is projecting the image might enable the receiver to pick up on body language, even subconsciously. And if you were familiar with the person, you might have an idea of the type of image they are more likely to project. For instance, if the person is an artist, they might be more likely to project an image of a work of art. And theoretically, if ESP exists, it shouldn't matter how far apart the people involved are.
Maybe, and maybe not... if thought is some kind of energy emitted from a person, maybe it diminishes with distance, just as smell, sight, and sound do...
I've always thought that if my family becomes independently wealthy, we'll have to spend a few weeks trying to develop what we experienced when we were first together.
Years back, I was playing poker with three friends. We'd smoked a bowl and started a game where one person picked up their hand, thought of the wild cards they wanted called. After a moment, the dealer would then declare the wild cards.
One guy, a nice but very gullible guy seemed to pick up the thoughts so well he always called the cards we were thinking of. I could never explain the incident without falling back on the fact that the only explanation was telepathy.
That happened to our family sometimes playing the card game rook. One time I had all green cards in my hand, and I called out 'yellow'... other team took every trick...
we always tried to project trump color.
I'm not surprised at your experience.
I've had enough experiences to know that certain people definitely have more psychic abilities. And it seems it depends on who they are interacting with. The more open others are to the possibility, the greater the chance of success.
Like Wilfion, I consider myself a sceptic, but I have had a reading in the past that was uncannily accurate. Try as I might, I cannot explain how this person could possibly have been so spot on about future, and past, events that happened to me. I think it's fair to say that just because we cannot explain a phenomena, does not mean that it is not valid. Just unexplained.
Let'stry this from a different tack. Backwards. I think someone is thinking about pizza right now. Which one of you is it?
Wow... amazing. I have a cousin with a brother named Joe who ate pizza last night!
Oh. That's just spooky. I'm definitely psychic.
Well, I once ate a pizza, in 1976, so you may have been thinking of me.
Well, I haven't really settled into my abilities; but I'll give it a shot. You are thinking about food, also. Fruit Loops maybe?
Nope, you read me. Fruit loops have the tucan which is a kind of bird and my son is watching Donald Duck right now.
Ah, I was actually thinking about red wine. I have an unopened bottle in the kitchen, should I, or should I not, pour a glass. Hey, wine is produced using fruit- You are gifted
You have a bottle of wine, and it remains unopened. Well that doesn't make sense at all. I am predicting that it will be open within ten minutes.
Thanks. I think your avatar messed up the signal. I saw fruit and Toucan Sam in the same vision.
Wanna know what I'm thinking?
This thread is so funny and such fun!

How can I stop projecting my thoughts onto others?- for example: looking for flaws in their appearances and how they are not as attractive as me, and wish they looked like me. When in actual fact every time I look in the mirror I dislike myself. I know I am just trying to look down on other people...
