There's also the possibility of telepathy v. precognition. The telephone would be a good example. Most people have had the experience of knowing when
the phone would ring and that's not necessarily precognition, but could be telepathy instead.
you knew the phone was going to ring, and at the other end was a machine, like an autodialer (telemarketer) and not even a human
being...then it's precognition
you knew the phone was going to ring AND you knew who the person was at the other end, especially if it were a family member,
boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife, or a good friend...then you were likely experiencing telepathy
, rather than precognition since the other
person dialing you was THINKING about calling you...they projected that thought to you in thinking about you..and while they were physically
dialing..you sensed and knew they were dialing before the phone rang. That's telepathy
rather than precognition. Telepathy via phone could
also occur to a stranger, i.e. knowing a stranger is going to call and something else about them, such as their job profession, what area of the
country they are calling from, etc.
I tend to experience both types on the telephone, daily. I tend to find the telemarketers and their autodialers annoying and sometimes I'll just turn
off the ringer before the machine calls and laugh at the callerID when the autodialer # shows up on the screen.
As for telepathy, most of the people who call me give out fake names, many fake professions, and some are even dumb enough to try to give me fake
addresses. I usually tell the ones lying about their professions that I know what their real job is and tell them. As for fake address callers, I tend
to give them a couple of warnings and if they don't stop, I'll go drive out to the neighborhood of the fake address they're giving and tell all the
real people living there what his phone number is and what he's doing.
The people that I know, I tend to know that they'll be calling hours before they do or days before they do. Like someone I haven't seen or talked
to in a year. I'll sense that they will be planning on calling me on a Saturday, when it's only Thursday. And they call on Saturday. I suppose
that's a little of both telepathy and precognition.
