Well, Yan,
So much equation in what you have
just said, it may be tuned.
Here I will try and then blather on a bit more..

This is inspirational: your Mother's success.
Thank you.

Very interesting... looked up
Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali.
Yoga's purpose is union with God
"Then one abides in their real nature."
In section IV, psychic powers are
distractions. Ignorance continues while
one is distracted by anything.
Some of that extra-mind stuff you mention may ONLY exist when not controlling the thought waves.
As I learned in Religious Science,
the psychic realm is a place to pick up
incorrect information and unneeded pain.

The radio Doctor, Dean Edell, was saying
recently that no psychic has ever claimed
the $100,000 prize to prove a certain class
of psychic phenomenon. Recently, someone
came forward to try -- results I don't know.

Many sociopathic behaviors were done in
history ( and, I think, to me ) by persons
who believed they had mindreading abilities.
The hardest-headed sociopaths were not persons with developed Yogic power but Zen or Natural
philosophies who did not appear to believe any Theology is worth much in gentle practice.
Like sociopaths ever, I am guessing they believed their careless, non-verified mindreading behavior, followed by malicious action, was perfectly right if they can escape punishment for it while in this world. This has been a stated philosophy by some of the worst in history. "The winners will write the history," they said. This cynical attitude was probably spawned by experience, even though it
might not be adequate justification for the extent of their deeds.
This is one circumstance
in the case my enormous student loan balance for an education certificate they refused to let me complete. I was apparently punished for deeds unknown, because someone had psychic knowledge, or thought they did, and knew the world
wasn't accepting mindreading, so they just skipped the part about "due process."

To prevent that whole ball of wax from happening,
those savages in our country who run over persons' rights should be stopped from doing so.
For to create injustice is bad karma.

I think the much-storied Jesus rarely implied he had special psychic powers, and did not wish to emphasize miracles as much as teach life logic.

I better close now.
