Stephen King: “All the arts depend upon telepathy”

(On what writing is)

“Telepathy, of course.  It’s amusing when you stop to think about it–for years people have argued about whether or not such a thing exists, folks like J. B. Rhine have busted their brains trying to create a valid testing process to isolate it, and all the time it’s been right there, lying out in the open like Mr. Poe’s Purloined Letter.  All the arts depend upon telepathy to some degree, but I believe that writing offers the purest distillation.”

— Stephen King
