Unless it comes from a dislocation in the fixed dimension or even a variable overlapping multi dimensional conscousness, good point's but I tend toward the thought and belief some psychics are not so much gifted or cursed as chosen, they may be intentionally so shifted to act as a bridge, a medium may have no inherent ability other than the bridging entity that is linked to them,
I actually experienced a very vivid third eye episode in which while I was awake in the car but thankfully not driving as it was overpowering, I was shown or saw a desolate sandy desert like place with a dull sky and on the opposite side of the valley from me there were multitudes of men (I saw no woman) there eye's where very strange but otherwise they looked like any normal human and they or one of them whom I could hear but not see asked "Would You accept becoming a Medium", I declined as it is against my religious persuasion as a christian but also in hindsight I think a medium may actually be a person whom has been stretched for lack of a better word and used by these or other entitys whom may otherwise not be able to reach our plane even if and I do say if they originated here.
There are parralel realitys and there are other planes do not confuse the two concept's.
There may indeed be many type's of medium and perhaps everyone is a little psychic, like living people the others can come in all varietys and even they can suffer mental problems or be dangerous, the idea the dead can not harm you is a lie, I have very little feeling though I am still an emotional person but before an Experience of being attacked I had very strong emotion's.

You have done some very deep thinking in this but the reality is seldom the same as the theoretical, still I am deeply impressed but the activity's that I have experienced are in no way false, now since I have disclosed the experiences I had in order to support the poster I think your ideas do bear merit but if you will forgive me as I diverge to physics for a moment,.
The idea of parrallel reality is one that is recieving growing support and elegantly explain's a number of SO CALLED quantum phenomenon such as the behaviour of spit photons, a photon is emitted then is passes through a prism that splite the photon into two indentical mirrored copys each with half the energy of the original photon, these two photon's are sent down two divided path's, at the end of one path there is a slit for the photon to pass through but at the end of the other there is a blank card to stop the photon, now there is a photographic plate that is placed to register the photon and when this hits it creates a radial pattern of lines in a circle around the point of the photon discharging it's energy into the photographic plate, now in the theoretical world as it is the mirrored half it should only create half an interferance pattern with half the energy but in reality it creates the entire pattern thus the theorists and the practical experiment where at odd's.
Now in the ideal world this would prove the theorists wrong under the scientific tenet that any theory can be supported but never proven and any theory in the face of contradictory (especially repeatable) evidence is automatically disproven BUT they had no other theory's to explain when a physicist suggested that because the photon is neither energy nor matter but behaves as both a wave and a particle that it may be able to co exist in several parralel realitys simultaneously and the reason they were recieving the full interferance pattern was because the photon was litterally skipping between realitys and in the universe when something both is and is not the balance automatically shift to IS which is why there are no such tests with blank plates at fifty percent statistical intervals.
Now let's look at the human brain, it is a incredibly complex set of neuron's (each like a multy tasking computer processor using chemical and electrical signals to network) and sophisticated network's and no two human brain's are actually alike other than the basic structure and pattern of PART's and yet science though is suggests that the brain can give rise to intelligence can not truly explain the concept of consciousness, now I am not alluding to mind but consciousness.

I have to complement your post it is the most impressive answer.
I believe we are extremely ill equipped in that endeavour and as you rightly point out many of the high level theory's my one argument are based on are actually unproven hypothesis, indeed many can not be proven and it can leave me wondering if the humble shepherd whom walks the hills' may be wiser than we in many way's, as each answer opens another question in a seemingly fractal pattern.
The understanding of the universe is called in physics the grand unified field but in it's ancestor alchemy it is called the philosophers stone and there are some whom think having that key (knowledge if they can grasp it as a single understanding like a single thought there consciousness can actually feel) would enable them to manipulate the very universe itself (Essentially they could but the universe has a way of springing back and one man whom was regressed talked of mind programming and how his people destroyed there very reality?) and forget seeking it actually shapes them.
