Language interferes with
telepathic ability. This idea is the crux of a new theory
concerning the development of language and the loss of
telepathic ability recently published in the Journal of the
American Society for Psychical Research. George Guilfoyle
argues that babies are born with natural telepathic ability
and communicate with their parents directly. As part of that
telepathic exchange, they begin to absorb the parents'
language, including both grammar and vocabulary. Then, as
they mimic that language and use it more and more, it
interferes with their telepathic awareness until their
telepathic abilities wither.
