â€œIf you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts could tell.â€ The Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot penned these lyrics in 1969 and it is still a popular song today. We are fortunate indeed though, that we cannot read each otherâ€™s minds: what a mess of relationships that would make! There are lots of tricks used to pretend that minds can be read. Carnival shows and clairvoyants ply their trade and popular entertainment presents crime dramas with â€˜readers of mindsâ€™ as the star attraction.
