In light of saber's recent posts, the plot is settling...

Perceived Telempathic Strengths (TS) [Scale = Ø—1Ø]*
  • Samantha = 12-13
  • Memory Singers = 9-1Ø
  • Nimitz = 9-11*
  • Mind Healers = 8
  • Scouts = 7
  • Hunters = 6
  • Normal Treecats = 5
  • Beth = Ø

[*]Note: Normal Bonded Human/Treecat = unrated

Which still begs the question of Honor's and Raoul's place on the scale. In light of this, it would logically appear that Honor TS < 5.

Saber, I think Nimitz' rating remains unclear, factoring in his being M ND BL ND.

Also, your input shows the need for treecats who are bonded to humans. Where do you suppose they would fit?

I do wish we had that telempathometer. There is an older version called a Webometer. It's an aged biologically powered analog version that's one-of-a-kind, but insanely accurate and trustworthy.



*Plot likely to settle further.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Inference:
  1. Honor TS < 5 (< 50 %) [bottom half percentile]
  2. Raoul TS > 5 (> 50 %) [top half percentile]

I can see a 50% increase in TS for Human/Treecat adoptions and probably the same for ordinary mated pairs.

saber964,

As soon as I figure out the best way to plot/represent the new data, I shall. Your input is what made this possible.

As elevator music to entertain until then...

Anyone familiar with the board game

S T R A T E G O

The above data looks highly adaptable.

It is news to learn that treecats, although they cannot outright lie to one other, can at least trick or rather deceive each other.

Video Snippet wrote:People could deceive or trick other People. Indeed some, like Laugh's Brightly was notorious amongst all the clan for their ability to do that. But they could not do it that easily, not by simply saying false things. They had to find other ways, more creative ways.

Fomenting rage?

Memory singers are responsible for keeping history alive in the minds of all of the treecats. I wonder what kind of new rage permeates within the species because of the Yawata Strike memory song.



Don't play that song for me. It brings back memories.



<OMG not that song again>



The song of the Yawata Strike has to be the most hated song in treecat history. Every time that song is sang, it has to fester rage and hatred within the treecat species. How can this one song not change the treecats more than just a bit, not just emotionally, but in a more profound way? As it is assimilated and digested by my own brain, disclaimer, the memory song is so awful the Memory Singers consciously decided to water it down, to sugar coat it if you will.

Which is sort of an untruth of its own, isn't it?...

I think it will be sung in full force. It might well be the greatest tragedy in treecat history. Yes, it will be painful. But treecats are different from us.

By the way, trying to rate telempaths including Honor and her son is a clever idea but not really usable. Humans are not really on the scale just because they are a different species. And Honor seems unique among humans although her son might be well beyond her. Right now, we just don't know.
