  1. From the point of view of science, no evidence of telepathy has yet been found. Moreover, after reading several popular articles about the structure of the nervous system and the propagation of signals in and between neurons, it becomes clear that the brain is not an” electric computer”, but a chemical one. And not even a computer, but a neural network in which all processes occur in a distributed manner. That is, it simply does not have any dedicated nodes on which the EMF of any electromagnetic wave could be induced and cause a chemical signal that is at least a little similar to the required one. But the presence of certain substances inside the body (for example, ethanol) seriously affects the mental processes and perception of the surrounding reality. Computers don't give a damn about ethanol, because in them information is transmitted by electrical impulses. By the way, the speed of signal propagation in a computer is light (300,000 km / s), and in neurons it is about several hundred m/s, i.e. it corresponds to the diffusion rate of sodium and potassium ions.

    At the same time, some philosophers do mention telepathy (Jung's”collective unconscious”, Andreev's egregors, etc.). What this might mean is not entirely clear, especially since empathy really exists.

    In principle, you can even create a matmodel of the collective as a single neural network, in which messages between individual neurons (people) are transmitted in quite ordinary ways: speech, gestures, books, videos, text messages, etc. I wonder what such a neural network could have thought of.


  2. Not necessarily. A thought can originate within the person himself. It can be the voice of conscience. It can be inspired by another person. So there are plenty of sources.

  3. A thought can have various manifestations, so it can also be perceived from the “collective psyche” of an egregor; borrowed (including from a shepherd who has a rich spiritual experience of past incarnations), as is often the case with people of science and art; a thought can be a sending of the Teacher's spirit to his student, who is not aware of this state of harmony with the Higher; there is a concept of spatial thought, etc.

    Thought, like any material object, manifests itself in duality: in the obviousness of its expression for the bearer of thought and in its essence (hidden, true meaning), which may even be the opposite of what the bearer has formed through the prism of their moral values and ideas. Such a” misreading ” of thought by a person occurs due to the obscuration of his spiritual nature (essence) by a materially denser and more aggravating nature. The more gross elements there are in a person's psyche, the further away they are from conveying the essence of thought.

  4. thought cannot be considered as imposed from the outside, since it is the result of the activation of all a priori (previously obtained) impressions and knowledge within the individual.

    but the formalization of inner thought can already take on a social or cultural form (related to the collective) – the usual language (or graphic) constructions in society.

    those who try to develop theories of egregors usually attribute to them (egregors) the generation and imposition of IDEAS (as some concepts that require comprehension).

    this is the meaning of any ideology, that the egregorial structure should provide followers with a set of ideas for comprehension, and followers already spread these ideas in the form of thoughts, images and statements.

    sometimes an egrigorial idea is described as a “thought image”, that is, a semi-finished product, already partially materialized, as a partially embodied idea .. such examples are often found in discussions of creative activity, and this explains, for example, the simultaneous composition of very similar poems by different poets.

    the ancients saw this as the activity of geniuses, muses, and similar personified entities.

    modern social tradition explains the appearance of such cases by the suggestibility of some members of society , the work of the propaganda machine, cultural viruses (viral memes) or simply the statement – “it can not be otherwise”.
