    Hi JOL. No, there is absolutely no biological mechanism by which that would be possible.

    But I read an article saying that if the two persons of communication are in absolute concentration it can be done.

    Where did you read that article, you should always judge the reliability of a source. You should also take into account the conditions under which the experiment was conducted. Under certain conditions you can program someone subconsciously to get a certain answer.

    What article? Cite your source- that's the #1 rule in science.
