Telepathy is the ability for individuals to communicate with one another without the use of their sensory perceptions. In psychic studies, telepathy is also referred to as clairvoyance.
A common example of telepathy is when people are suddenly bombarded with thoughts about someone from their past, only to receive a phone call or letter from that person within a short period of time. The phrase "I was just thinking about you" is often associated with telepathy.
There are many skeptics who brush off reported telepathic instances as mere coincidences, but there are also many people who believe that telepathy is genuine.
