Kwok-Man Hui <kmhui at> wrote a question about telepathy.

Exceedingly low sensory data rates are adequate to support complex
behavior as long as an accurate internal model exists that can be used
to interpret the available data, and as long as the sensory system can
be controlled to probe hypotheses of interest. The evidence is from bat
auditory neuroethology, but has implications for human 'telepathy'.
Don't postulate ESP unless you can eliminate covert channels.
