This paper speculates upon the possibilities of a telepathically enhanced culturalenvironment, which might create forms of modulation in the neural networks of the brain.The first uncertain challenge, in the section Telepathy and the Idea of the XSF, is tounderstand telepathy as Extro-Science Fiction (XSF) and show how XSF becomes real.XSF as understood by Quentin Meillassoux is contrasted to science fiction. Particularly Iwill concentrate on Meillasoux Type 2 worlds whose irregularity is sufficient to abolishscience but not consciousness. Through an exploration of the artist practices of RobertBarry, Marina Abramovic, and Susan Hiller employing telepathy, I will suggest these artexperiments produced information that science could not. These artists and their workhave laid the foundation for an integral understanding of telepathy, where telepathy inconceptual art processes are materially engaged with the brain, body and the world.Responding to a wealth of information manifesting in science fiction, these conceptual artpractices, within a sub-genre I call extro-science conceptual art, an extension of XSF intoart, have been reappearing in recent telepathic technologies. These conceptual artpractices become the first materializations in the cultural schemata of these technologiesand form a link to experiments with those of the 19th century to the present day. Theymanifest as migrations of the sensible and insensible, and form active visions to beharnessed by such things as material engagement theory (MET) and brain artifactinterfaces. (BAI) discussed in my next section. Material Engagement and the WorldBrain Continuum. Using these theories as a foundation I analyze how a culturalenvironment in the process of becoming more telepathically inclined, as a result of moreembedded telepathic technologies, might in fact sculpt the brain’s neural plasticity.
