Hello John,

I can understand the attraction of the source/receiver model of
communication to account for what we call telepathy. But it is
generally accepted that the physical signal strength of a
thought is inadequate for any potential physical communication
channel. So it has to be something else, and parapsychologists
tend to gravitate to models that assume certain properties of
consciousness. Donovan reviews some of those properties.


One correlate of telepathic communication is empathy between
sender and receiver. He notes that "the descriptive language
characterizing both charisma and empathy overlap with that used
to recount details of alleged telepathic phenomena".

Similar language is used to describe psychic performance. He
offers the following quote. "Psychics often commented that
'reading' a client was simple, a matter of 'becoming one with'
that client and then 'reading themselves.' What psychics do,
then, is predicated on the ability to literally or
metaphorically 'let go' of their ego boundaries".

The idea that the normal ego is a barrier to interpersonal
telepathic communication suggests that Hopkins' fear may have
been unfounded. It seems that telepathy requires the ability for
two people to become one in some sense, and that implies consent
on the part of both parties.

With respect to your UFO encounter where one broke formation and
came toward you, this model would say that you must have had
some kind of empathic relationship with the UFO or its
occupants. How likely is that? I think it is more likely that
the UFO existed somehow inside your own personal psychic
boundary unbeknownst to your conscious mind. I would suggest
that the UFO was nonetheless physical and visible to anyone with
you. This model says that you were a participant in creating the
sighting at some unconscious level, so you may naturally have
had some conscious control over the UFO's behavior.

If one can unconsciously create a UFO sighting, then why not an
alien abduction scenario? Since many abduction reports are
similar, the scenario would have to be based on a trans-personal
archetype available to us all.

This model assumes that our consciousness is involved in the
creation of reality in general, and so it accommodates all the
"experience anomalies" that Jerome Clark talks about. Our
consciousness has much more depth than we know, and it's
creativity is obviously limited by stringent rules. But
occasionally we may introduce a glitch and unknowingly create
something that appears to violate causality.
