Message from the Author
Greetings reader; if you have read any of my previous books, you are already familar with who I am. My given name is Ilaihr of Andor. To my Aenar kin I am Zid Ziiih, the Ancient Lord; for I spent a hundred years frozen in suspended animation, as the galaxy passed my ageless body by. To the Andorians and the Vulcans, I am merely the Frozen Child, for much the same reason. The Breen and Tholians refer to me as The Avatar of Ice and Fire, a grand sounding name with obvious reasoning. The Orions call me Purr aam Tum; Andorian for The Keeper of Secrets, and a plethora of races, like the Klingons, call me The Trickster. I have gone by many names and even more titles throughout my days, however, some must not be spoken, and others I simply cannot tell you the reasoning of. The route of all of them though, are the experiences of my long life. For the longest time, and to the many out there, I was a simple trader. I have always thought of myself as an explorer, of the galaxy yes, but also of the mind, and the soul.
Within these page, are contained the sum of my knowledge, coalesced over the course of more than a century of research and intensive training. It is on a subject that is very close to my heart, it is the core of how I perceive the world; the very reason why I choose to experience life the way I have. To some, telepathy is a subject of great misunderstanding, it makes people uncomfortable. Similarly, it can breed distrust, derision and even disgust in some cultures. As such, I have decided to write this book, not only on instructing those of you who are telepathic and capable of manipulating psionic fields, but to inform those who cannot; and even teach them how to resist unwelcome telepathic attempts.
From the Vulcan mind meld, kineticism and the creation physical illusions, to the humble commune between a Trill and their symbiont; we will explore the multitude of telepathic techniques and abilities, as well as the races that bear them, the cultural significance and the history of telepathy as a whole. We will go to the primoridal beginnings, the formations of the organs that regulate it, to the ultimate evoultion of such powers; the ability to defy the laws of physics themselves, that higher plane beings of our universe enjoy. By the end, you will come to know, through the adventures of the mind, that what you think you know about the fabric of reality, is nothing but a drop of water in a boundless sea.
