Telepati (dari Greek τῆλε, tele bermaksud "jauh" dan πάθος, rasa kesedihan atau makna -patheia" perasaan, persepsi, semangat, penderitaan, pengalaman")[3][4] adalah yang dikatakan yang mewakili penghantaran maklumat dari seseorang kepada orang lain tanpa menggunakan saluran deria manusia yang diketahui atau interaksi fizikal. Istilah ini dicipta pada tahun 1882 oleh ulama klasik Frederic WH Myers,[5] seorang pengasas Society for Research Psychical,[6] dan tetap lebih popular daripada ekspresi pemikiran-transparan sebelumnya.[7]

Eksperimen Ganzfeld yang bertujuan untuk menunjukkan telepati telah dikritik kerana kekurangan replikasi dan kawalan yang lemah.[1][2]

Eksperimen telepati secara kritikal telah dikritik kerana kurangnya kawalan dan pengulangan yang tepat. Tidak ada bukti yang meyakinkan bahawa telepati wujud, dan topik ini umumnya dipertimbangkan oleh masyarakat saintifik untuk menjadi pseudosains.[8][9][10][11]

Their results based on literally millions of tests, have made it abundantly clear that there exists no such phenomenon as telepathy, and that the seemingly successful scores have relied either on illusion, or on deception."

Within the scientific community however, the claim that psi anomalies exist or may exist is in general regarded with skepticism. One reason for this difference between the scientist and the non scientist is that the former relies on his own experiences and anecdotal reports of psi phenomena, whereas the scientist at least officially requires replicable results from well controlled experiments to believe in such phenomena - results which according to the prevailing view among scientists, do not exist.

Let me take the example of claims in parapsychology regarding telepathy across spatial or temporal distances, apparently without a mediating physical process. Such claims are at odds with the scientific consensus.
