 An interesting aspect of psionics on furscape being a  simple EM phenomenon, is that it ties in well with radio and electronics. A useful side of this is that a psionic interface on a device is possible, a less useful aspect is that trying to send a psionic signal to someone on the other side of an electrical power cable is like trying to yell a message across a roaring rives. An interesting aspect of psionics on furscape being a  simple EM phenomenon, is that it ties in well with radio and electronics.

 Anything for which low-energy EM fields are used, may possibly be emulated by psionics. ​ A popular example is the application where this is used for medical purposes, working on the body in  much the same way as acupuncture. ​ Additionally,​ anything that blocks conventional EM energy also blocks psionically-manipulated EM energy. Anything for which low-energy EM fields are used, may possibly be emulated by psionics. ​ A popular example is the application where this is used for medical purposes, working on the body in  much the same way as acupuncture. ​ Additionally,​ anything that blocks conventional EM energy also blocks psionically-manipulated EM energy.

 As an example, this EM field can be manipulated and serve as a form of psionic "​sight"​. ​ Using this talent, a physician can perform simple medical imaging of a patient. ​ Electrical engineers can examine circuit boards and trace malfunctioning systems. ​ Note that training in the appropriate field is required in order to be able to interpret data gathered using this talent (An ordinary psionic could use this talent to see obvious bone fractures or obvious organ damage, but remember that even doctors today usually call in specialists to interpret X-ray images or magnetic resonance imaging results). ​ Characters who are visually blind can still use this ability to "​see"​ shapes and navigate through a room. As an example, this EM field can be manipulated and serve as a form of psionic "​sight"​. ​ Using this talent, a physician can perform simple medical imaging of a patient. ​ Electrical engineers can examine circuit boards and trace malfunctioning systems. ​ Note that training in the appropriate field is required in order to be able to interpret data gathered using this talent (An ordinary psionic could use this talent to see obvious bone fractures or obvious organ damage, but remember that even doctors today usually call in specialists to interpret X-ray images or magnetic resonance imaging results). ​ Characters who are visually blind can still use this ability to "​see"​ shapes and navigate through a room.
    
-Psionics on Furscape do not support psychokinetic or other fantastic effects - if you want to be lifting weights using the power of your mind, try somewhere else.  Additionally,​ the EM field generated is too low to allow players to act like living "​masers"​ and generate damaging amounts of EM energy against living targets.+Psionics on Furscape do not support psychokinetic or other fantastic effects - if you want to be lifting weights using the power of your mind, try somewhere else.  Additionally,​ the EM field generated is too low to allow players to act like living "​masers"​ and generate damaging amounts of EM energy against living targets. ​
