Okay, read the following quote:
"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting." Sun Tzu, The Art of War.
That's a sentence attributed Sun Tzu, written around the sixth century B.C. - or about 2,500 years ago. One version of this saying was found on these 2,000 year old bamboo slips, pictured below, protected in glass tubes.

So this guy from 2,500 years ago had these thoughts and transmitted them into your brain. All he had to do was write them down in some form. Those thoughts were then passed on, transcribed from one media to another, translated, re-translated, and transcribed again. One of the places that thought ended up was above. in this blog post. I passed a 2,500 year-old thought on to you.
In other words, you read someone's mind.
See how easy that was?
And you do it every time you read a book or article or Facebook status or tweet or blog post.
You are a mind reader. Congratulations!
