Now that i think about it, both my parents have their own psionic moments. Sadly my dad thinks it's all devil worship, and i dislike my mother. so i never talked to them about it.

my current theory is evolutionary shift: Ever generation sees more psi's than the generation before. During my childhood and teen years I encountered VERY FEW others. Now, amongst late teens early 20's types there are significantly more per norms than the average population. MORE SO, in elementary age, there are a lot more per population than at the teen and early 20 level.

It also APPEARS to be loosely genetically related: it does pop up randomly in non psi families, but it also seems that psi's are more likely to have psi kids.

We're also more likely to marry each other more often than nons, which could explain why our population is increasing at a slightly faster rate than the general population. Evolution is a messy process. It could be involved here--but just as I said, because we tend to marry each other, not because something is changing people on a grand scale.
(In other words, our reproductive strategy is letting us take over. <G>)

my mother doesn't, my siblings don't, I have an aunt that did (precog dreams) and a grandmother that did. My ex (and the father of my children) did, his mother did, his sisters didn't, and his father is an unknown.

Both of my kids are, and I am.

sadly i'm the only one in our entire neighborhood who can do psionics... but i can't even use it as i will. ^_^

i think if psionics is a skill, then it can be passed on. if our energy can be passed on to our kids (i don't have one, i don't have a wife ^^) then even if psionics is not a skill, we could have kids that are on a higher level when they reach our age.

I'm not sure how accurate this is.

Try comparing the number of psions you knew in your childhood and teenage years, to the number of psions you know now who you came across by normal, real-life circumstances (i.e. not on the internet). Is there really that much a change?

Could it be because psi abilities are repressed more and more as age increases, that there appear to be more psis in younger generations?

Erm, anyways, this entire conversation can be explained by my exposure-> abilities theory.

While that may be the case psi has a physical component to it. Ie, nerve clusters emit psi, therefore a person that has stronger nerve impulses would naturally be able to generate more psi then someone with average nerve traffic. Since things like our nervous system are genetic, it's safe to assume that there is a genetic compound to psi abilities.
