Re: Telepathy and Empathy
Good Empath’s can sense emotional states as well as….how do I describe this ?
You can tell if someone is in pain , you can sort of pick up on how they physically feel as well , sensations , you can pick up the emotions of memory’s , say someone is remembering a happy moment from their childhood , you’d be able to feel the emotions of that , or remembering when a close friend died , again you’d be able to feel their sadness and sense of loss …
You can also tell on certain levels how a person is physically feeling , tired , hungry , in pain ,euphoric , the whole works of emotion and sensation.
Depending on the strength of the connection and the telepath …for memory’s , there could be pictures , sounds , names …but no emotional content .
It’s a sort of very fine line …ok…hypothetical analogy .
A television …it has both sight and sound .
An Empath …would hear the sounds but not see the pictures , and a Telepath would see the pictures but not hear the sounds .
That’s just an analogy of course and it doesn’t work quite like that but the principals are the same .
Erm…what else ?
Ok…smell , it’s the most powerful trigger in memory , but I’m not sure if Empath’s can pick up on it as I know ( from my own experience ) Telepaths cant .
Blanks …anybody know about Esper Blindness ?
I know of these from a telepathic point of view but I’m not sure about empath’s , there are some people out there who generally get called “blanks” , you’ll probably never meet one as they are incredibly rare .
Hard to believe but it’s a sort of a urban legend among telepaths .
I’m not sure who coined the term “Esper Blindness” , but its used to describe a person with absolutely no psychic ability’s at all …not even latent ability’s which nearly everybody has to some degree , a flip side of being esper blind is that you simply cant be read , its like your looking at a big blank space , nothing registers at all .
From an empathic point of view , I’m not sure if they’ve ever been talked about or if empath’s have their own name for them .
Its almost unheard of … being Empathic “and” Telepathic , I say almost …because there’s always someone who claims to be both , most of the time their claims are fraudulent , so far nobody can say “ No , you can’t be both” , as far as anybody knows , there’s no law that’s says you cant be both …
But as far as anybody knows , no …its unlikely to be both , it has something to do with the way psychic ability’s branch out , one branch of ability’s will be , psychometry and empathy and another branch will be telepathy and precognition .
Ability’s branch off , but there’s a lot of ability’s out there …how should I say this ?…that don’t make the spotlight ?
Some people have psychic connections to animals , or plant life , others with constructs ( machines ) ..I kid you not , like being able to find your way through a circuit board , and not knowing the first thing about electronics .
There’s just a lot of things that people can do that don’t get classed as ability’s .
But by far the hardest ability for anybody to learn is telekinesis , direct energy manipulation to the point where it effect physical matter .
Anyway…I’ve rambled on enough.
