But not so, I hear. Professor Kevin Warwick of Reading University has been carrying out some strange experiments with his wife.
"My wife and I became the first humans to communicate directly through the nervous system, which was an amazing experience," he told a somewhat bemused audience at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development exhibition on lifelong learning.
"When my wife moved her fingers three times, for example, I felt three corresponding neural pulses in my own nervous system."
