Comments

  • Telepathy is the supposed communication of thoughts or ideas by means other than the known senses. It was a major field of research for scientists during the early 20th century and into the Cold War. [1] Upton Sinclair also conducted telepathy experiments in the 30's.[2]
  • The audio distortions on the vocals of this track may have been modeled after the reported auditory distortions present in Microwave auditory effect [3], which was a facet of telepathy research during the Cold War. This auditory phenomenon was used to transmit sounds directly from a microwave emitter into the human brain. Researchers described that the auditory distortions inherent to this process caused "the sounds [to resemble] those emitted by persons with an artificial voice box." [4]
