    I've recently read "Altar of Eden" by James Rollins. The plot includes genetically modified humans and animals that have a large magnetite crystals in their brains. These crystals act like radio transmitters and receivers, allowing telepathic communication between species and synchronization of their brains...

    Magnetite crystals are found to be seeded throughout human and animal brains.

    I was wondering, if these crystals were modified to produce powerful electromagnetic waves, could this lead to an artificial form of telepathy?

    Possible I think, though the easiest might be to have our brains connect to an internet network. Not something we'll be able to do in the near future though I would think.

    That is one of the possible future applications...

    What I'm curious about is whether or not this can be used to communicate with other brains assuming that the magnetite crystals can act as a receiver and a transponder...
