i'm supposed to be getting ready to go to tafe, but this is an interesting thread, so heres my 2 cents worth
RedneckGyrl have you tried sheilding yourself, go to Psipog article on shielding
, they have articles on telepathy and how to sheild yourself from picking up random thoughts of others.
In the past on some occassion i would sit on a crowed train and i would be flooded with thoughts about all sorts of things, i thought they were my own and that i was going crazy. But thinking back i think i was just developing telepathy, i'm not sure. After that i sheilded myself and it stoped.
Try it, i think it should help. anyhow i'm gona be late if i keep typing so see ya.
