Synopsis: Sometime in the future, the Canadian Academy for Erotic Inquiry is investigating the theories of parapsychologist Luther Stringfellow. Seven young adults volunteer to submit to a form of brain surgery that removes their power of speech but increases their power for telepathic communication. An unseen group of students observes the results. As the experiment progresses, Stringfellow's theories come to fruition. Later, aphrodisiacs and various other drugs are introduced to the subjects to expose an inherent polymorphous perversity. In the end, they are isolated from each other, provoking antagonism and violence between them, which results in two suicides.

has repeatedly stressed

the vital necessity for

the use of this approach.


in the new social sciences.

where variables are infinite

and complexity is of the

highest possible order.

The nature of erotic research

requires that the sexual emotional

involvement of the researcher

with each subject be taken

to its farthest possible extreme.

It is only in this way that the researcher

in whose consciousness, a total mosaic

of his particular research project exists

can divine in each of his subjects

a color, a texture, and a shape.

And so assign to that subject,

his proper place in the research mosaic.

It was hoped that many important questions

would be clarified, if not answered,

during the course of our experiment

with induced telepathy.

Two of the eight subjects consented to

having portions of their larynx removed.

Making it physically

impossible for them to speak.

In addition

large portions of the speech centers of the

brains of these subjects were obliterated

so that the psychological faculty of

speech itself would be impaired

Would the maturing and strengthening

of the telepathic capicity in

these speechless subjects

surpass that of the subjects who

still retained the ability to speak?

It was anticipated

that the telepathic experience would be much

more than simply reading another's mind.

One telepathist would perhaps

be able to apprehend

not only verbal patterns,

as they arose in the mind of another,

but would also encounter simultaneously

the germinative layers of memory,

learning, emotional response,

and psycho-physiological impulse, which

actually generate thought and language.

How dependent upon language is thought?

Is abstract logical thought even

possible without language?

The essence of the telepathic bond

David Cronenberg

David Paul Cronenberg, CC OOnt FRSC (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, actor and author. Cronenberg is one of the principal originators of what is commonly known as the body horror or visceral horror genre. This style of filmmaking explores people's fears of bodily transformation and infection. In his films, the psychological is typically intertwined with the physical. In the first half of his career, he explored these themes mostly through horror and science fiction, although his work has since expanded beyond these genres. His films have won numerous awards, including the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his film Crash (1996). more…
