Miss Information is freaked out by psychics

Miss Information was sitting peacefully at the reference desk when she was disturbed by a commotion.

“Stop reading my mind!” the Internet guy shouted.

Miss Information was all set to apologize and promise to never read his mind again when she realized he had not directed his comment at her but was speaking to another computer user. Nevertheless she had a bad feeling about this so she alerted the woman in charge and the security guard who diffused the situation by reminding the paranoid guy to use his indoor voice when expressing his delusional thoughts.

Ironically Miss Information can’t get the incident out of her mind. See she wonders how Paranoid Guy knew that Other Guy was reading his mind…unless Paranoid Guy was reading Other Guy’s mind, too. And really if you read someone’s mind when they’re also reading your mind, do you just get a crazy reflection of your own mind? Is it like that painting of Stephen Colbert standing in front of the painting of Stephen Colbert standing in front of…? Can you break the loop without causing permanent damage to the participants?

Miss Information would love to ask. This is why she’s never going to be in charge.

"... Use his indoor voice when expressing his delusional thoughts."

Sound advice, Miss Information. We should all take it to heart.

My brother and I once had a thought similar to that:

What would happen if he forwarded his cell phone to my number, and I forwarded my cell phone to his number.

So we did this and told a friend to call one of us, silently bracing ourselves for the space-time continuum to swallow itself. All our friend got was a busy signal when she tried calling. It was very anti-climactic.

A commenter on another blog linked to this blog post. Miss Information's thoughts are similar to my own these days. Now I worry that someone at the other blog has psychic awareness of my slightly freaked personal wonderings, and the link to here is a way of proving it...

All kinds of psychic reading information is important.Once you balance mind, body, and spirit, you find love has an opportunity to flourish. Strange, but it works in the romance department.
