===Consequences of Niide's Hypothesis for Treatment Research===
On Niide's view, any experience of another individual's subjective states must necessarily disrupt the consciousness of the individual sharing them:
<blockquote>It is possible that I may only experience someone else's subjectivity as a hallucination or delusion; that is, my perception of the actual object of my vision may be occluded by the actual object of some other person's object of vision, or it may be interrupted by that object, or I may be possessed by the belief that I am in the physical location occupied by the other person. But just as I only experience aspects of the object of my own consciousness indirectly, so the aspects of the other person's object of consciousness will come to me indirectly&mdash;but this only after first apprehending their consciousness as an interruption or intrusion upon my consciousness, and this is the essential, direct feature of a telepathic event. [. . .] The question of the possibility of telepathy aside, there can be no question that ''if'' people did have such experiences, they would certainly be undesirable and perhaps even unendurable. The most favorable possibilities for telepathic events are already extremely disquieting ones, and we have no warrant to believe that they would be restricted to their most &ldquo;benign&rdquo; form.</blockquote>
Niide therefore regards any treatment research aimed at harnessing or refining psycheidetic sensitivity as misguided. A successful therapy would be one where the patient could suppress all psycheidetic sensitivity as long as they adhered to the treatment regimen, and a cure would mean the extinction of the patient's psycheidetic sensitivity.
