Wow, I guess Julia momentarily forgot that Brian could hear her thoughts. But if they were doing anything "involved", I think she'd be all right. I read somewhere that during an act of "involvement", your mind is blank. I'm not sure how credible that article was though. lol.

catadescour It seems he believes she's actually capable of doing that, hehehe

OK, Brian can "hear" words, or voices, and "see" pictures,in other people's minds. Anything else? Can he sense feelings, or abstract conceptual thoughts that don't fit into words or pictures? I've always wondered how mind-reading is actually experienced.

Yes In comics, people have to think in words and pictures most of the time if their thoughts are expressed. It's hard to write abstract thoughts into a comic strip, but if I could, Brian would be able to sense them.

haha, oh brian :D
i really like how he looks in the fourth panel, btw.

Iris Lefay Longbottom (Guest), June 4th, 2010, 2:11 pm

You could use words, pictures, and symbols that represent other thoughts, feelings, and sensations. In Larry Niven's story The Soft Weapon, the hero imagines chewing raw carrots while the carnivorous alien telepath reads his mind for information, just to drive the telepath nutty.

How does he distinguish between people speaking and people thinking?
I have seen a few tv programs where someone finds out they are telepathic because they answer someone then find out they were mind reading, so was just wondering if Brian hears them the same as a persons voice and has just got used to it, or a person thinking sounds different to their actual voice.

sylviagrace, June 5th, 2010, 11:45 am

Thanks, Jhac!

Chris, I think thoughts sound different from spoken words. I think Brian's pretty good at distinguishing them by now.

Dokidoki-rin, June 5th, 2010, 1:38 pm

Just too bad he hasn't learned how to block out other people's thoughts. I'd go bonkers from all that.

on another note Kachunk is THE perfect sound effect for car locks!! XD

wo_chi_baozi, June 6th, 2010, 3:31 am

Ohhhh Brian, how I love thee.

And suddenly she realizes she wasn't being so paranoid after all...

I love how mild Brian continues to look even when he's acted on her thoughts..."Uh, I guess so". I'm actually choking with laughter, Sylvia!

with all these questions someone must ask about where these powers originated from and when they started!!!
<_<...>_> (looks around)

Ok to be honest I don't really want to know, it might ruin the casualness of it for now. LETS TAKE IT CHILLY AND FLOWLY YO. (ahahahaaha what? xD)

edit: also, LOLOLOL to 2nd panel XDDD That was so funny ahhahaha xDD
