Fringe star John Noble has defended the credibility of the science featured on the show.
Speaking in an official Fox video, the actor insisted that many of the storylines featured on the drama were based on real science.
He said: "It's scientifically proven that there are things within our brain capacity [like] telepathy. We can do all these things, it's just that we're not refined enough. This is not really mysterious."
"I think what we're talking about now as being science fiction, [in] ten years time will be on everyone's iPod," he continued. "It's the way change is happening."
Noble also dismissed the suggestion that viewers might struggle to understand the show's complex science.
"[Viewers] don't have to understand all the science," he argued. "I don't understand it all, but it doesn't mean to say we can't go with the flow. We don't have to underestimate our audiences. If we act well enough and tell the stories well enough, then people will come for the ride, I think."
The third season of Fringe begins September 23 on Fox.
