According to this article, there’s no evidence of extra-sensory knowledge or perception.  Imagine that…

Good to see some reconfirmation ... wink

... although I must say I’ve always wished that ESP were possible. It would be a very interesting additional capability.

Duh!  That’s only because I used my psychokinetic ability to block the Brain Scanning Equipment from picking up my telepathic, precognitive and clairvoyant abilities!  wink

It’s coming, Doug.  At the present rate of advancement in both electronics and bioengineering, I can imagine a powerful, multifunctional computer/cell phone being implanted in one’s sinus cavity.  Then growing an extra occular nerve bundle to connect to it.  That way, you can connect with others just by thinking about it and mentally dialing their number.  The problem, of course, would be hackers who could log into your computer, then have access to the rest of your mind.  The final nail in the coffin of privacy. 

That’s my ration of science fiction for today. LOL

The final nail in the coffin of privacy. 

Right, that and the teletransporter. I don’t think Roddenberry realized how that technology would entirely eliminate privacy ... not to mention making bank vaults entirely useless.
