I just want to drive my Lamborghini around while eating raw bacon on a stick and watering my money trees with the tears of baby seals. Is that too much to ask?

Keep in mind, we are speaking about psi, not only raw information transfer like the dissertation of a doctor about his client, without any compassion with him personally. Psi makes you affected by what you perceive, even if subconsciously.

If we speak about this 'pen and paper' psi than you are correct. But that is not really psi in my opinion, it is more something like a translation of ideas. Have a look on people who call themselves 'RVers' and compare their empathy with their session results. I postulate that with better psi abilities you have a more intense experience and connection with the target than with interpretable and vague informations, drawn on paper with a pen.Ok. assuming that were the case - are you also saying that it would be equally strong for all people? because really everyone has different foci in the information they get via psi.
You seem to suggest that you think that one can not be ...for instance.. a serial killer.. and also very psi active.
Thats not what I think! Sure a serial killer could be highly psi talented, but he is mentally instable, in other words diseased. I spoke about healthy persons. Sadism, if practised against the will of other people, is a disease too. But these people wouldn't be able to hurt for a long time, the social environment would become aware of their activities in a very fast time. And, hopefully, help them, not prosecute them. But I haven't suggested that a community with trained psi abilities were perfect. But it wouldn't be that bad as you described it earlier, because the premises are different to objectify how such a social environment react; at least not based on our society yet, so a linear interpolation isn't fair.You seem to omit the possibility of a pleasure derived from harming others (otherwise known as 'evil')
Not by people who haven't experienced psi. And as I said, when anyone has trained psi abilities, you would know anything about others too. The need to have secrets would be obsolete, because no one could have an edge out of it, so no one would care what 'secrets' you have - in fact nobody would laugh about what you do, think or whatever, because their own thoughts would be no secrets.Would we really like everything that occurs behind closed doors in the privacy of our homes or the dark depths of our minds to be accessible by anyone at any time?
