Details: One of the four new mutant types is psionic. Psionics have enhanced mental abilities. Genomex.net's psionic subtypes: telepathic (mind readers), telekinetic (able to move objects with the mind), telempathic (able to read and adjust emotions), precog (able to see future events), illusionist (projects unreal visuals or attitudes).
On the Mutant X team, Emma deLauro began as a telempathic psionic and diversified as the series progressed. As a telempath, Emma was able to read the emotions of others and project images/emotions into their minds. Emma would later demonstrate other psionic abilities as well: broadband telempathy, telepathy, memory enhancement and erasure, psionic blasts that rendered the recipient unconscious, and mind control. More about Emma deLauro is here.

Being Psionics, we don't need to speak much. However, there is much more to convey. Pass on your thoughts, verbally or otherwise. All will be received.
Every new idea is an old dream.
Even a Precog cannot predict love.
TO S.W.: "Read your mind. It needs editing." J.B.
Any telepaths interested in Taos retreat check out Homer's "The Odyssey" for travel arrangements. You already know the dates.
Pyrotechnics always have a light.

TO H.H.: "See you at you-know-where for you-know-what on you-know-when." FROM: You-Know-Who.

you in shape.
Is it love or is that just a gun in your pocket? If you don't wish to know, don't empath.

I sensed Joy. It was not mild on my hands.
To all Cyberpaths: Remember to unplug and do the flesh-and-blood thing occasionally.
