The empathic scale runs from 1 to 10 and breaks
down as follows:

1.00-- This is all the empathy of a brick or of a total
sociopath; zero empathy.

1.5 to 3.0- Low to moderate empathy; the empathy
of most normal people possessing sensitivity to the feelings
of others. Borderline psi empathy.

3.5 to 6.0- Limited psi awareness of other's feelings;
limited ability to communicate with animals and to sense
the feelings of others from a limited distance. Some
physical sensitivity to one's environment.

7.0 to 9.5- advanced psi awareness of others thoughts and
feelings of others; the ability to communicate fully with
animals; the ability to sense the emotions of others from a
distance (including, but not limited to, being able to get
impressions of others from photographs and other non-
personal contact); physical hypersensitivity to electrical,
magnetic, barometric, and other environmental factors.

10.00 - Total ability to empathize with others, including
(but not limited to) assuming the physical injuries, wounds,

sociopath with absolutely no empathy than someone with

Witch- A word used to describe people (usually women),
who practice witchcraft. Also, generally, a derogatory term

and other practices. This is not "Wicca,"- a religious
belief-system- but a technique, a discipline, and a science
for utilizing psi as well as other paranormal and/or
supernatural forces. It should be noted that many of the
people who "practice witchcraft" really have no clue as to
what is involved in witchcraft or the mechanisms


Research with EEG equipment on psis and espers has
shown that certain brainwave frequencies-- usually found in
the temporal lobes of the brain-- are associated with certain
psionic abilities:

4.00 Hz (theta)-- Telepathy

6.30 Hz (theta)-- Astral & Mental projection

7.00 Hz (theta)-- Telekinesis and it's variants

8.30 Hz (alpha)-- Clairvoyance & Precognition

20.0 Hz (beta)-- Telepathic hynosis and variants

It is currently not possible to determine what frequencies are
associated with each of the seventy-plus known psi abilities
but presumably, the frequencies above also apply to the
variants of these abilities. For example, if 7 Hz is associated
with telekinesis, it should also be found in people who
display the related gifts of EPK,storm control, psychopyresis,
etc; if 4 Hz theta is linked with telepathy, then it will probably
be found in people with catalyst telepathy or xenotelepathy as well.


Author and telepath James H. Schmitz in his book, The
Universe Against Her, defines three classes of psis, which
can usefully apply to real-world espers. Note that Schmitz
was himself a telepath in real-life.

1. The Class I psi: these are people with very limited psi
abilities; no more than one or two gifts, and with little or
no conscious control over them.

2. Class II psis have several different psi abilities; an
awareness of those abilities and some degree of control.

3. The Class III psis are called Unpredictables and can have
several, even many different psi abilities that can grow,
change, or disappear entirely, all... unpredictably.
NOTE: This list is free to anyone who wants to use it as
long as all due credit is given to its author- me, Orion E.
"Ron" Hubbard.
