Let me know if a thread like this one exist.
Thanks a bunches.


So, imagine a world where at the end of the 21st century human beings develop psychic abilities. How did it happened? What is different or remain the same? How have humans dealt with this change? What would you do?

Enjoy!!!

Quite a high crime rate at a period, then drop and people maybe becoming better to tackle it.

law enforcement and psychology would become easier fields, maybe.

Easy. Offer myself to public services or work privately in medical services. If the military recruits me, I'll join the branch for deterrent purposes, such as preventing the usage of WMDs or other offensive psychic users. What I won't do is to disrupt other people without powers. I am not superior or inferior to them, and we all can flourish in different sectors of society. I think you may have developed this question from watching Shin Sekai Yori? I wouldn't want to live in that kind of world.

More intrusive and less private, more exploitation maybe?

A total mess, and to be honest i wouldn't do any better.

PD: One of the wonderful things about Batman is that he is just a man. He doesn't have superpowers or extraordinary powers other than his tremendous intellect and physical prowess.

Just imagine your next door neighbor having the power to destroy your town,
with just one bad judgment. At least right now, all we have to fear is nuclear weapons.

Surely there would be less exploitation if everyone is psychic?

Psychic and on the same level of psychic ability, you mean. Otherwise the strong would try to dominate the weak, like in any thing.

I'd just rewatch Shin Sekai Yori... As I recall, the opening covers exactly this question. The answer being badness.

well considering humans are really stupid and only use 10% of their brains. The answer is no.

If it was possible. Expect ways of humans trying to kill each other with this power or trying to cheat the system. That is if it was wide spread.
