Look what else I stumbled upon- I am not doing 'research' on this stuff, I just halppen to find it.

All this gives me an idea- how about a Tower Prime that's quadriplegic? Or one that's autistic, and has trouble communicating verbally, but absolutely no problem with telepathy/telekenesis? Why not?
The quadriplegia thing has been done in Pegasus in Flight and Pegasus in Space.

I'm not sure an autist could communicate any easier through telepathy, since their brains are wired so differently. Theycan't interpret other people's feelings in the same way as the rest of us. However, I could see telepathy and particularly empathy as a therapy to make an autist realize he's not the only inhabitant on this planet.
