    Summary

    How does telepathy work?

    Well, like the Heinsenberg compensator: "Just fine, thank you."

    Actually... it's complicated.

    But don't tell anyone, OK?

    Before you read this chapter, please read P-ratings for n00bs, latent through P5, and P-ratings for n00bs, P5 through P11 - at least the first part, so you know what I'm talking about.

    This is the chapter that explains it all. (The overview of the story line about Department Sigma can be found here, with spoilers.)

    Summary

    Telepaths have self-confidence issues, too, no matter what their P-rating.

    We've all been there.

    Summary

    In Paragon of Animals, former Psi Cop Byron Gordon stands up to Garibaldi:

    "Do you know what a telepath has to do in order to avoid picking up stray thoughts? We have to kick down our natural abilities. Run rhymes and little songs through our heads, round and round. All that to keep from picking up what you're broadcasting loud enough to be heard halfway down the hall. ... Mundanes want us to fill our heads with noise and babble so we won't hear what you're shouting at the top of your minds."

    To be a telepath in the mundane world is like living in the never-ending hell of Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron, sometimes with physically dangerous consequences. Bester finds this out the first time he leaves Academy grounds.

    After all, as it says in Deadly Relations, p. 58, when Al is attacked by a normal for the second time in two days, and this time decides to fight back: "Al came to the painful decision that he would have to break a regulation. He probably had already - [telepathically] pushing a normal, even in self-defense."
