• In the science fiction genre any race capable of psychic ability are considered more advanced because they have discovered how to utilize more brain functions. Most good science fiction has a basis in fact. This concept follows historical facts showing how the human culture sets apart people wwho display brain power beyond normal limitations. Ex: Einstein; Nostradamus

    In sci-fi a person with psychic ability can also be feared and labeled as a potential threat. Same as some historical figures – Joan of Arc

  • Well can you imagine a total moron who could predict your future? The combination of idiocy and the occult has never been a happy one. Psychic Powers also are traditionally linked to spiritual ability, again–something you never associate with stupidity. Also any power is usually seen as reserved to smart people–good or evil. In tv and scifi dumb people are never endowed with power, unless they accidentally solve crimes like Inspector Gadget.
