I\'ll also block out \'noise\' and things, but I guess that\'ll only prevent my progression. But I really, really, don\'t want to develop the ability to hear thoughts.
This leads to another question, in a conversation when I\'m thinking exactly what the person is about to say, even without really knowing the person, is it because I\'m putting the words in their mind or is it me \"hearing\" the thoughts? Often times I think one word and he or she says it next. You tell me?
