development ability of healing

To me this ability is the same as healing but a step up, none of these abilities have brought people back to life once they are fully dead: I know this sounds daft how can somebody not be fully dead but you can bring people back by shocking their hearts by using electric pads; Peter was being drained and Ishi was dying but we don't know if this was to do with ability or her own health but Linderman didn't have no negative effects on him, as they both seem to have this in common.--50000JH 09:21, 24 February 2010 (EST)

  • Not to start up an old debate, on a different board, but I don't see why healing touch is seperate from Linderman's ability. It requires basically the same method to use and accomplishes the same thing. Do we know that Linderman's ability doesn't work like Jeremy's, such as his mood affects the ability and could kill instead of heal? Didn't Linderman touch everthing he healed? It's the same thing, Jeremy just couldn't use it as well as Linderman.--Inblackestnight 17:04, 2 June 2010
    • The issue is that we don't know if Linderman can kill like Jeremy can. Unless we somehow get confirmation that Linderman could kill as well, they remain seperate abilities.--PJDEP - Talk - Polls and Opinions 18:04, 2 June 2010 (EDT)
      • I don't argue that we don't know if Linderman can or can't do that, just that it is a very minor thing to list them as two seperate abilities when a simple note about the known difference in Jeremy's case would suffice. Not that this makes a huge difference to me but this is almost like listing Meredith and her brother's pyrokinesis seperately because his flame is blue, or making all of the Parkmans' abilities seperate, since all what they can do is not just telepathy.--Inblackestnight 22:22, 2 June 2010
        • SIGNATURE. *Ahem* Whether it's a big difference or not is irrelevant, we don't know if they're the same ability and there are enough inconsistencies to label them as different abilities. Both Meredith and Flint were confirmed to have pyrokinesis, and unless I'm mistaken it's the same case with Maury and Matt.--PJDEP - Talk - Polls and Opinions 22:33, 2 June 2010 (EDT)
          • Also, the color difference in pyrokinesis and the variety of things that can be done with telepathy are logical and were properly explained. Even precognition through telepathy was explained. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 23:21, 2 June 2010 (EDT)
