Here he notes that various clinicians have reported to him that their multiple personality patients occasionally exhibit remarkable instances of telepathy. While the intimacy of the psychotherapeutic situation can foster telepathy, there are also both psychological and sociological reasons that such abilities are associated with an alternative personality. The discussion also focuses on the nature of spiritual mediumship and its relationship to multiple personality disorder.
