Noeticist

There are scientists and there are Noeticists. Situating themselves somewhere between philosophy and physics, the Noeticsts beliefs center around the idea that the human mind is capable of affecting work or events or even doing work in the physical world. It is suggested that thought and spirit are not, in fact, imaginary, but are Bose or photon based, meaning essentially that the mind can be quantified by formulae which describe quantum materials such as light. This is a radical conclusion, as many people consider thoughts to be weightless. Noetic theory claims that just as gravity affects all matter, thoughts do as well, although to a lesser degree. Psychokinesis, more often called telekinesis, is concerned with the direct influence of mind on matter.

But that's all textbook knowledge. Noeticists are not only hot, they are rare an in demand. Science today wasn't what it was in the 20th century. Scientists are hip, and cool. Being a scientist is more like being a celebrity and Noeticists are the hottest act in town. Noetic speakers are chosen to speak at ceremonies and almost every corporation has one on hand. Hell, even the cyberdocs are scurrying to collaborate with with. Who knows what kind of new tech they will brew up.

Noosphere: Noeticists are able to influence human thought by harnessing the power of the collective mind. This functions in a similar manner to the powers used by Preachers and Rockers, but with an academic twist. Noeticists
