I have had -in the past, for many years- and still on the odd occasion have...a very strong deep and thorough telepathic link with someone, in which not only certain thoughts but also every nuance of emotion can be felt -both ways.
I have quite enough firm evidence of this too. It is evidence enough for me (though no-one else would see it) as I am very critical in my approach and need quite concrete evidence in order to give credence to a thing, whatever it may be. That's just the way I'm built.
But I very much doubt if Mr James Randi would see it that way -do you? He would not experience the same things I do because he wouldn't be able to see, sense, or anything else, our private telepathic contact. Much as I so need a million dollars!
Also, though I have no evidence whatsoever of Irisha's psychological condition, I am not necessarily willing to jump to the conclusion that all the phenomena she has experienced are as a result of mental illness. My guess is that the "channel" started out as real enough, and in most part, maybe still is real enough. But that there may be certain elements which have been misinterpreted over time, perhaps. If there is a lot of oppression, and the contact seems to be taking over life, it can make you feel many things are happening connected to the telepathic link, which may be quite random and unconnected.
For example...Mr G may well not be responsible for mistakes on the keyboard, or the vagaries of the Internet (which are often maddening!)
But when living under a shadow of this kind, one's whole life can tend to be coloured by those negative and oppressive things. The skill is in sorting out which things he really is connected to, and which things he is not -or all this can descend into delusion. And then what next? No-one will believe Irisha.
The only thing I am struggling with is why? Why would Mr G wish to control (and ultimately destroy) the will of not only Irisha, but another woman in Russia who was connected with him? For the kick of it? Because he's a control freak? Because he likes to manipulate women at a distance and gets a hit off it?? Because he has some sexual or otherwise -connection with them, and has a really twisted sexuality? Many sexual creeps can even live quite 'normal' lives on the surface, perhaps married with kids, etc...and their dark fantasies are reserved for their shadow selves. Some live out those fantasies in internet porn, visits with prostitutes, or other things. Maybe this telepathic channel is Mr G's 'kick'?? And he's using a special psychic gift he has to fulfil his dark fantasies?
