Electrical Experimenter (03:09) January 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Our scientists of to-day as a rule ridicule any attempt of thought transmission for there does not seem to exist any authentic case on record where thoughts have actually been transmitted freely between two individuals. But, in view of the fact that during the last 20 years we have learned how to transmit wireless impulses through the ether without the use of intervening wires, is it not possible that given sufficiently sensitive apparatus we will some day find it possible to transmit our thoughts through free space?"
The January 1916 issue of Electrical Experimenter features the cover story “Ball Lightning.” Also included is an Audion article, an early article on facsimile transmission, and an installment of the Baron Munchhausen series titled “Thought Transmission on Mars.”
