The ability can be used to communicate telepathically and show others one's thoughts and memories. The ability does not always require touch, but contact does make it easier. It is also possible to project the thoughts of others, but this is more difficult than projecting one's own, and the other individual can resist. It is known that Nathan Owain Petrelli Jnr is currently unable to use this aspect, because of his young age. The ability doesn't have any visible effect at all, and it is impossible for any telepaths or mind readers to overhear a conversation held using this ability.
