Most ET abductees claim their abductors communicated with them telepathically.
I'm not predicting anything of the sort to happen, though others have. I'm just wondering out loud, in a kind of sci-fi way, what would it do to our society?
So if the "next level of consciousness" contains telepathy, it raises a lot of issues. It would revolutionize society. It would be impossible to keep secrets. Your thoughts and emotions broadcast out loud for all to hear. Just imagine trying to keep your mind from betraying something you'd like to hide. A girl you have a crush on. She knows. What you think about your boss. He knows. What you think about in bed. Your partner knows.
Your concerns would be the concerns of all. No one left behind. The greatest frontier would turn out to be the self in a selfless society. So all these social embarrassments wouldn't last vary long, you wouldn't just know or broadcast a crush it would be the entire portfolio of feelings and entire array of why you find someone attractive or interesting.
Not all of it would be base enough to offend, the cobwebs of secrets and forgetfulness would be a thing of the past.
The paradigm would be an alien one to be sure.
What would the evil-minded person do if forced to share his thoughts?

You nailed it there with the veil lifting and people that only previously believed the lie having to face the truth.
I have personal experience of people being very deceitful, lying purposely about me for their own gain, I now believe the originator of the lies and the person that sowed the seed of evil initially as a psychopath. They caused a lot of pain for me, since a child, I couldn't defend myself against their lies because I didn't know they were telling them, it was only when people accused me of things I gradually realised. Even now I sometimes am asked strange questions that when investigating, comes down to a person lying outright about me.
This is an example of how things like lies operate on a micro /macrocosm level.
If only the veil of lies is lifted and people will know the truth.
Telepathy doesn't work like that.
It isn't like wearing a prompt screen on your face or being some sort of 'loudspeaker' per se. could you imagine if all were 'loudspeakering' at once? Inconceivable.
I can and do communicate 'telepathically' and it is a wavelength thing, something I and certain others can tune into. I add with complete certainty that only those that I choose to communicate with, receive the communication, and the communication is beyond instant, this has been proven. Best not to ask how, but it has.
Those that I know that I can and do communicate with and them with me are a select few and they are those that I have connected with on deeper levels (in ethical ways) . I won't say too much on this here but there have been times when this communication has been invaluable and has saved the day a good few times.
I hasten to add, because I was once accused of my art and intelligence being channeled from others as some sort of 'medium' this simply isn't the case. My art, words, intelligence etc are all my own. The telepathic communication I know is like having a conversation, each keeps their own identity.edit on 2-1-2014 by theabsolutetruth because: (no reason given)
You are referring to linking in with someone (with their permission). That involves the tuning in process . As you know this is also the modus operandi for psychic attacks. As with everything it is the motive and permissions that count.
When reading the thread , I am thinking more of the loudspeaker type of telepathy as the OP was referring to. There are many people who spend their lives fighting off the unwelcome reception of thoughts mostly from people in the vicinity. It can be like a radio broadcast especially when people are thinking by having mental communications with an hypothetical listener. It is less so if their thoughts are heart-felt rather than purely mental.
