4am is a weird time, and I’ve already covered a few things that keep me occupied at that time of the morning , or this. Things like why flying is nonsense, why invisibility would be chilly, walking through walls not floors and the improbability of time-travel.
Mind Reading: Actual mind-reading, not the interpreting the body language and picking up visual clues. Listening in to people’s thoughts. I’m not a scientist but I’m not actually sure that there are voices in my head that you could listen into like a radio, and the mind is processing a lot of information all the time.
Mind Control: Being able to influence people by “talking” in their head. Nice idea the thought of suggestion. I don’t know if you’d have to have contact with their head though, like a Klingon mind-meld or something or you could just stand behind them and whisper, brain-to-brain like not actual words.
Trans-Location or Teleporting: Being able to re-locate your whole self into a different or new location. Couple of issues though.
- If you were standing you would arrive standing, if you were sitting you’d arrive sitting, or whatever posture, pose or contortion you had at point A you would arrive at point B the same.
- If you teleported into a solid object, like a concrete wall, that’d be a problem, mostly of instant death, because you’re transient state of moving from A to B would be finished.
So would need heaps of research if you wanted to use this ‘power’ to do anything without injuring, or even killing yourself. You’d have to extend this to being able to scan or verify the landing place before your re-emerged, then making it a non-instantaneous transaction where you would find yourself outside of the everything. useful for things like getting from one side of a door or from one room into the next room perhaps (furniture and other objects in your landing space aside).
But it was 4am and the clock went tick-tick-tick
