What are the rules for using psi?
Psi has basic operating principles:
1) The psi wielder must make a mental connection with the object. This means that he or she must be familiar with the object being influenced. It is easier to make a connection with something that is visible. The only way a psi wielder can connect with something that is not immediately visible is if he or she has seen it before or if it is a standard mechanism that is meant for public access such as a door latch or a light switch.
2) The psi wielder must create a very clear mental image of what he wants to happen. This means that the wielder must have the knowledge required to envision precisely how an object works in order to influence it.
3) The psi-wielder must exert definite authority to make this change. Authority acts similar to a lie detector test. That is, authority comes from one’s own conscience, one’s own sense of right and wrong, which is ingrained early and deeply by parents, teachers, and church officials. If a wielder is doing something that he knows he shouldn’t be doing, he experiences an inner conflict which will prevent him from using psi. If the psi wielder is confident that he is doing the right thing, he will be able to use psi. Even so, this can create dangerous situations such as sociopaths using psi or people who mean well but are clumsy with psi. Such dangerous persons are taken to asylums where they are drugged to impair their psionic powers.
Psi follows common laws of physics:
1) Psi requires energy. Psi wielders must put forth mental effort, which means that using psi creates mental fatigue. For this reason, some ordinary tasks are easier done without psi, especially when it comes to things like transportation. Levitating oneself is theoretically possible, but requires a great deal of energy and therefore is not practical.
2) Psionic strength dimishes over a distance.
3) Small things can be moved quickly but big things start off slowly.
Rules for using psi to influence another person.
A person can only use psi against another person in three situations:
1) Showing affection.
2) Assisting another person
3) Defending oneself.
These rules are ingrained early in psi training and enforced by the Authority Rule.
