Hi @EmilyMarieMenendez, thanks for your question. The stimulus here presents an argument. Its conclusion is "it is premature to conclude that telepathy is an alternative means of communication." What support is given for this conclusion? "It can often be shown that other explanations that *do* comply with known laws can be given," and also "conclusive evidence [for the existence of telepathy] has persistently evaded [researchers]."

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
