Authors of science fiction novels often dream up some extremely interesting scenarios and yet in doing this they must be bathed in some type of scientific theory in order to be believable to the reader. In fact many readers reading science fiction do so as a way to learn various way out theories that normal scientific communities cannot discuss.
In fact many science-fiction novelist are drawn toward science-fiction in order to put forth ideas and concepts or theories that they have that are outside the row of acceptable scientific discussion. Not long ago a couple of gentlemen were talking about science-fiction and telepathy. One of them said to the other;
"Here is how I perceive it could work in a Sci Fi novel. "
You think about someone you have met, but only someone who you have looked into their eyes and made a light connection with in the past. You have traded light instructions and now share photon information. But it may not be possible to share thoughts with any individual mind you have not made a connection with or your genetic displacement is too far distant.
Indeed this could be possible and even if it is not possible now science could figure out a way to make that possible in the future. And perhaps this might be the easiest way to cell phone your friends and family without use of electronic device sometime in the far-off future. Wouldn't that be spectacular and maybe that's why scientific novelists love to probe into the unknown and come up with way out theories for their storylines.
