Perhaps in the hope that military commanders will one day order troops
around with their power of their minds, in the style of X-Men's
Xavier, the U.S. Army has given a grant of $4 million to "synthetic
telepathy" researchers in Irvine, California. I guess the "synthetic"
part is supposed to make this all seem more legitimate, because it's
computer-mediated telepathy instead of the Ghostbustery kind.
