Telepathy describes the alleged convey of information on thoughts or feelings between persons by means other than the five classical senses. The term was coined in 1882 by the traditional scholar Fredric W. H. Myers, a founder of the Society for Psychical Research, particularly to restore the earlier expression mind-reading. A individual who is able to make use of telepathy is said to be able to read the minds of others. Telepathy, along with psychokinesis forms the main twigs of parapsychological study, and many studies seeking to detect and realize telepathy have been done in the field.

Telepathy is a general theme in fiction and science fiction, with many superheroes and supervillains having telepathic ability. Such ability includes both sensing the thoughts of others, and controlling the minds of other group. Transhumanists judge that technically enabled telepathy, called "techlepathy", will be the predictable future of humanity, and seek to expand practical, safe devices for directly linking human nervous systems.
