Many, many years ago I was a South African working in London. In the dead of night at about 1:00 am I awoke with a start as I had, what I can only term, an experience. What awoke me was so vivid that I (daringly) shook my wife awake and said, “I don't how I know this but Mr. Barclay died tonight”. With that I turned over and went back to sleep.
Next morning I clearly remembered the incident and asked my wife what happened. She remembered all right. “Yes, what were you babbling about somebody call Barclay?” I then told her that Mr. Barclay was the father of a childhood friend who I did not even know very well. At that I ceased to think about the incident until days later I received a letter from my mother 10000 kilometres away in Pretoria, South Africa. Included in the news from home was the sentence, “You remember, Mr Barclay, Robin's father? He died on Friday night.” Yes, you guessed it. The same night I had my strange experience.
Never before and never since have I experienced anything similar. Perhaps the closest would be when you turn to your spouse and say something and she responds, “That's weird, I was thinking exactly the same thing”. That happens quite often.
So the question is, “Is there such a thing as telepathy”?
“Scientific consensus does not view telepathy as a real phenomenon. Many studies seeking to detect, understand, and utilize telepathy have been done, but according to the prevailing view among scientists, telepathy lacks replicable results from well-controlled experiments.”
I accept that and obviously consider all psychics, fortune tellers, channellers and prophets as frauds. But I am just interested to know of others similar experiences.
And if there is anyone out there who knew I was going to write this article then please contact me again urgently.
