If Erica used her powers while looking in a mirror... could she read her own mind? :o

"You could read your own mind, but you already know what you're thinking."

A variation of a line from The Narrator in KQ2+, which is one of four responces to when you use "Talk" on yourself. "You could talk to yourself, but you already know what you're going to say."

What if Erica met another psychic... and she read his mind... and he read her mind... which was reading his mind... so he'd read her mind reading his mind and she'd read his mind reading her mind which was reading his mind which

I think it would only work for one level, after that it would just be you watching someone watching your mind with running commentary. :P

Erica's powers seem limited to physical objects. So if she touches a book, she'll see where that copy of the book is, but the powers are limited to the physical object.

It would be interesting (and probably completely impossible) if her powers extended to other things. So, for example, if she touched a book she got from a bookstore she would be able to see the writer slaving over the manuscript, the publishers looking over it, the contract being signed...
