Rupert Sheldrake, funded by Trinity College, Cambridge, has brought forth positive results concerning the commonly known notion of "Telephone
Telepathy". The phenomenon where someone knows a particular person is about to call them on the telephone. As his initial study groups are
admittedly small, Sheldrake has stated a desire to provide more extensive results.
Each person in the trials was asked to give researchers names and phone numbers of four relatives or friends. These were then called at random and
told to ring the subject who had to identify the caller before answering the phone.
"The hit rate was 45 percent, well above the 25 percent you would have expected," he told the annual meeting of the British Association for the
Advancement of Science. "The odds against this being a chance effect are 1,000 billion to one."

I've been a long time supporter for the idea of a collective unconscious. I feel events shared among individuals tend to strengthen the implied
connection, and that newly discovered theoretical physics may provide an actual sound explanation for these traits.
I think everyone has experienced what Sheldrake has been researching, only to brush it off as coincidence. Still, much remains to be seen.
