    Do any of you guys know of any device which can be used to read the mind of a person. Well I have a friend of mine who says that some people are reading his mind. He says that many of the topics he thinks about and the words he thinks about are told back by people just to annoy him. According to what he says, I feel there should be some receiving device available for them to instantly interpret he thoughts. Do you know of any device like that or incidents like that ?

    Are you serious? I don't think that any of this is possible. Maybe one should investigate in detail what is really meant by "talking back thoughts". I guess, it will turn out that it shouldn't be taken too literally.

    I find that my tin foil hat effectively prevents that from happening.

    I suppose it is possible, but only if we could link our brains to computers, which could read our thoughts, and then the computer could emulate our thoughts to somebody elses, so they could understand ours. Much like a emulator runs a printers language to a PC. But that technology is a tad far off though, not likely soon.

    If people can read his mind, he's probably reffering the phenomena of a telephone call. When you suddenly think of someone for no reason and then they call. He is probably assuming something similar. I doubt people can read his mind, but I suppose it is possible someway, but very un-viable at the moment. Its more viable to assume paranoia. Any proof would help. If he cannot stop people reading his mind or prove it, then either A: He sees a psychiatrist, or B: He does what Harold suggests.
