Anomalous cognitionAnomalous cognition
is a general term describing a transfer of information to a subject through currently unknown means.
It fits descriptions of telepathy
, extra-sensory perception
and other "perceptive" paranormal
There is currently no known way of differentiating "telepathy" (mind to mind information transfer) from, say, precognition in an experimental setup, as the target information must be recorded at some point to make a comparison with the subject's responses.
