The term is derived from ancient Greek. τῆλε — "far away" and πάθος "feeling". This hypothetical ability of the brain to transmit thoughts, images, feelings and the unconscious state of another brain or body at a distance, or take them from him without the use of any known means of communication or manipulation.

The term "telepathy" was first coined in 1882 by Frederick W. H. Myers, one of the founders of the British Society for psychical research, after experiments trying to transmit thoughts at a distance, which he conducted together with three other researchers — GURNEE, Seguiram and Barrett.

Experiments associated with trying to prove the existence of telepathy, was conducted in Europe, the USA and the Soviet Union, but, despite reports of a number of preliminary positive results, attempts to reproduce them in a more rigorous experimental conditions lead to negative results, making the reality of the phenomenon remains unproven.

Given the lack of biological preconditions for telepathy, most scientists believe it is impossible in principle, and psychic study relate to the pseudo-scientific activities.

Telepathic abilities are described in Homer's "Odyssey" — the story of the Phaeacians, the people of Sherii that to "deliver on the seas accidentally placed on Scheria travellers", used by ships without a rudder and helmsman: each ship knew the thoughts of sailors.
