Analayo paper on mindreading

Post by Cittasanto »

Hi everyone, been a while since I last visited.
I had an interesting discussion today, and I remember Analayo Bhikkhu having a paper, or part of, on mind reading psychic phenomena in the discourses.
Does anyone know where this is, or something similar?
Thanks all and hope all are well

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

There is this PDF file:
From Grasping to Emptiness – Excursions into the Thought-world of the Pāli Discourses (2)
In it, see "9.3 Supernormal Abilities" (pp. 125-131 of the document / pp. 127-133 of the PDF file).
p. 42 (or 44) also quickly goes over telepathic powers.
