I watched a really interesting video of an interview of physicist Michael Talbot (now deceased) on "Holographic Universe" theory. It relates to what you are talking about. One of the things he talks about is that mental telepathy takes place, and we just don't understand it enough yet utilize it. The link to the vid is posted here ... I'll find it.
"The holographric Universe"
(okay, I have to say this ----> Kreskin has finally been vindicated! true mentalists of the world rejoice)
Edit: and I'm not kidding... :)
