On the contrary, anyone who had ESP would be like the only sighted man in
the kingdom of the blind, and would enjoy enormous advantage. We should
expect that such abilities would become at least as well developed as other
senses through the process of evolutionary competition. We wouldn't be
sitting around debating whether ESP exists because it would be completely
obvious and commonplace. The fact that evolution does not seem to have taken
this path should tell us something.
