The Willing Game

The second stage on telepathic development is much akin to that just

described, with the difference that there is no physical contact between

the sender and the receiver--no holding of hands, etc. A variation of

this is found in the familiar "willing game" in which the whole roomful

of persons concentrates upon the receiver, and "wills" that he find a

selected object. On the whole, however, the private experiments

conducted by the sender and the receiver, with perhaps a few intelligent

and sympathetic spectators, are far better than the "willing game" plan,

in which there are usually many triflers present ready to make a joke of

the whole thing, and thus taking away that true concentration under

which the best results may be obtained.
