The ability to discern the thoughts of the dead or other noncorperal concepts and use the resulting force in various ways. A sub-power of Omnipathy, a Power Mixture of Mental Manipulation, Mediumship and Dimensional Awareness.

Also Called

  • Psychosomatic Manipulation
  • Telepathic Order


This power is an extremely rare psionic ability usually displayed by deceased telepaths, mediums, or extremely powerful celestial beings. On the ethereal plane this power is used to keep malefic spirits and apparitions in order by manipulating their ectoplasmic brain patterns and causing whatever past thoughts and desires they had while living to be returned to their psyche. This drastic change in pathos torments ascended souls by making them experience all their past concerns and cursing their soul to never find peace.



This power can be expressed on the worldly plane on rare occasions usually from users with raw psionic potential. A clear link to other dimensions is needed in order to perceive the thoughts. Once users have absorbed the left over thoughts their mind refocuses the echos into pure disintegrating energy. That energy is then reinforced throughout the users body and takes on an aura-like appearance. The user then expels the energy through semi-cohesive wisps (mimicking the classic ghost appearance). Due to its returning to this plane, the energies disintegrating properties add to it a blazing quality that is capable of tearing and burning through the intended target. Like most mental attacks this force can be highly draining of the user and is usually only used as a last resort.
