Energy Perception

Energy Perception is the ability to change one's vision or shift one's brain waves to psychically see or detect the presence of a certain type (or numerous types) of energy. This ability could allow one to see any of the following:

  • Wind Energy Perception or Wind Perception is the ability to perceive the flow and flux of the wind along with its direction; it also allows one to perceive things being carried by the wind or that affect the flow of wind.
  • Mechanical Energy Perception or Kinetic Perception is the ability to psychically see and detect mechanical (kinetic and potential) energy. This ability can be used to see potential or kinetic energy (and sometimes even the object's projected path of motion).
  • Life Energy Perception, also known as Life Perception or Life Sense is the perception of the life-force that exudes from all living things; can be used to tell if a subject is alive as well as their health condition.
  • Death Energy Perception, also known as Death Perception or Dead/Undead Perception is the perception of the energy that is released from subjects after death; can be used to detect the presence of dead, undead, etc.
  • Light Energy Perception or Light Perception is the ability to perceive all light as visible light; can be used to see the paths of light beams, and see through bent light (to notice invisible or camouflaged subjects); may imply sensitivity to intense light.
  • Radioactivity Perception is the ability to sense radioactivity as well as radioactive substances; can be used to detect nuclear weapons or toxic waste and/or sense various forms of radiation, be it ultraviolet, nuclear, atomic or otherwise.
  • Gravitational Energy Perception or Gravity Perception is the ability to sense the intensity of gravitational fields; one with this ability can sense disturbances in gravitational fields made by movement, or can discern how to effectively defy gravity, which allows Superhuman Agility.
  • Electromagnetic Perception is the ability to perceive the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves to light waves to electrical energy; one with this ability can even sense disturbances in the Sun and Earth's electromagnetic fields.
  • Electrical Energy Perception is the ability to perceive electrical currents (even static); one with this ability could tell if a storm were approaching or could detect the presence of electrical appliances, machines and devices; they are especially keen to the sound and the feeling of electricity in the air.
  • Color Spectrum Perception, also called Optical Spectrum Perception or Chromesthesia is the ability to perceive the entire color spectrum via sight; allows the user to see camouflagers (and things which supposedly have no color) and distinguish the difference between any two similar colors; certain sensory stimuli may also cause one to see certain colors.
  • Psychic Energy Perception or Psychic Energy Sense is the ability to detect the psyches of living things and the energy emanated from the psyche; this ability allows one to discern the level of a subject's intelligence, or if a subject is psychic.
  • Aural Energy Perception or Aural Energy Sense is the ability to detect the auras of living things; this ability allows one to discern the level of a subject's emotions (or emotional instability), or if a subject is empathic; not quite Aura Reading.
  • Astral Energy Perception or Ectoplasmic Energy Perception is the ability to perceive energy emanated by spirits (within bodies or dissociated) thus allowing one to detect the presence of ghosts, to see if a subject is alive (or if they are possessed).
  • Stochastic Field Perception, also called Stochastic Perception or Luck Sense is the ability to perceive stochastic fields (similar to one with the power of Serendipity or Zemblanity) allowing one to follow them in order to create good or bad luck, or to discern the likelihood of good/bad stochastic events (good/bad luck) occurring.
  • Magic Perception or Magic Sense is the perception of magical or supernatural energy by its type and intensity; can be used to detect sources of such energy as well (such as supernatural entities and creatures) and what the magic is used for.

Sometimes this ability may even be used to detect super humans which are capable of manipulating the energy that the user can detect. Other forms of perception are possible.
