Bathroom Monologue: Telepaths Don’t Exist

“He's erased himself. All these years of tampering with our minds, possessing our bodies and turning us against each other – all of it nothing compared to this. Everyone in the world has forgotten who he is. He thinks this is a vacation. Now he can tinker with minds and no one will notice, first because telepathy is hard to detect, and second because they don't know he's out there. His powers are fiction to them, which makes the world his empire. But there's something he didn't count on. Everyone forgetting him also means that if we can find him, nobody will remember what we do to him.”

  1. That would be a cool premise for a novel. The first thing that came to mind was the little men with the bum-shaped heads from the Star Trek pilot 'The Cage' (except they actually took different forms).

  3. Cool premise for novel or movie. Fun just the way it is, too.
