The ability to perceive, analyze, and comprehend patterns.

Also Called

  • Apophenia
  • Paradigm Apperception
  • Pattern Perception/Recognition


User can perceive, analyze, and comprehend patterns in one's environment.

This ability comes in two parts: the analysis and the perception. First, the user looks at a subject, or otherwise, comes into contact with it, which triggers the willful psionic analysis of a subject's properties and features (shape, density, texture, etc.). After the analysis, the user can pick up on any subject of the same molecular/chemical/genetic, or otherwise, structural makeup, and track them accordingly.


  • Become an awesome analyst (analyze chemical components, texture, beneficial/harmful effects, etc.)
  • Sense a subject's true nature (age, gender, race, any diseases) to "out" shapeshifters, or the like.
  • Track down any specimen similar to one you've previously analyzed.
  • Perceive and understand all cause and effect relations, deducing the path leading to any effect.
  • Calculate probabilities to infer the future.
  • Decipher any/all passages/paradigms of the world.



  • Analysis, if undeveloped, can be triggered randomly.
  • Analysis can be used to analyze language patterns, fighting styles, etc. But this can take a while.
  • At higher levels, even analyze the space-time continuum, but this takes a while to obtain.
