RUSSIA SAYS “SUPER SOLDIERS” CAN CRASH COMPUTERS WITH TELEPATHY
According to a report in the official magazine of its Defense Ministry, Russian “supersoldiers” are able to use “parapsychology” techniques to crash enemy computers, access the minds of foreign soldiers, and read documents inside locked safes — abilities they gained, according to the article, from telepathic dolphins they can now communicate with.
The report is almost certainly nonsense. But it does raise questions about the ambitions — and perhaps dysfunctions — of Russia’s military.
The report refers to the supposed super powers as “metacontact” and “parapsychology” — the latter a term often invoked to describe mental abilities that don’t quite hold up to the scientific method. Russia discovered those techniques, according to the article, by studying telepathic dolphins.
