This article talks about "mirror neurons" in the brain and how this essentially makes all people with working mirror neurons can "read minds." This is misleading, as it does not mean you'll be able to hear what someone is thinking. It really sounds much closer to empathy and, on some level, psychic abilities based on the descriptions they give.
I can see this happening in my own life. My friends and I, whom I have known for many years, are able to finish each other's thoughts, sometimes without a word being spoken. We can sense when something is wrong.
I think it would be interesting now to see what energy these mirror neurons create that extend outside of the body and get picked up by other people.
