Ramses Sanguino’s mother never imagined their son would turn out to have super-human powers. Who would think that an autistic boy is telepathic.
Ramses finds social interactions difficult and confusing even though he has a photographic memory and is able to learn at a crazy pace. He’s now learning seven languages after learning to speak Japanese at the age of two and Russian at 13 months. He also just began solving algebra puzzles — at age 5! But Ramses’ extraordinary intelligence is not his greatest strength.
Neuroscientist Dr Diane Powell has travelled to Los Angeles to meet Ramses and his mother, Nyx, after seeing some of the remarkable videos made about this little boy. Soon after meeting him, Powell realized that Ramses’ telepathy seems to only work with his mother, suggesting that it might have something to do with the close bond between an autistic child and his mom.
“If you think about it,” Powell says, “if you have your primary language compromised then that would be a perfect setup for telepathy, because here you have a child and a parent who desperately want to communicate with one another but can’t.”
“I have found many autistic children who have been reported to be telepathic and I wanted to see it for myself and see if it can be evaluated and actually tested under rigorous, controlled conditions,” she explains. “I am as confident that telepathy exists as I am a lot of things that have actually been accepted by science.”
The footage above shows him speaking several different languages and solving complex mathematical equations. You can even see him reading his mom’s mind.
In the experiment filmed by Barcroft US, a number generator was used to pick numbers for Ms. Sanguino to think about. Ramses was then asked to read his mother’s mind and recite the numbers, which he was able to do three out of five times. Remarkable!
