Damion, I think you must have missed a number of messages from
our Fearless Leader, myself, and others. We are not suggesting that
_any_ type of mental power, be it aura or psionics, is transmitted over
the Matrix. As far as I know, this has _never_ been suggested!
What _is_ being suggested is that a psionic with the correct
abilities has a _chance_ (target numbers to be determined later) to find
out enough about a person from their icon to access what we're currently
calling the worldmind and attempt to use some mental powers upon them.
