Telepathy – the direct transference of one’s thoughts, feelings(also called empathy) to another person without the use of the usual ways of communicating.
One theory is that everyone’s thoughts are radiated around them and telepaths are able to pick up on those thoughts.
Another theory is a link between two or more people is established. This link allows thoughts to be transferred to that person as well as feelings. This theory is kind of like how the Borg on Star Trek function. They can all hear each others thoughts.
Of course there are those people that just pick up on what people are thinking or feeling. These people are sometimes referred to as Naturals.
