Main article: Digital Communication

Electronic communication, or digital communication (also known as cyberpathy and technokinesis), is the ability to intercept, generate, and interpret electronic, digital, and radio transmissions with one's mind.

CharactersEdit

Confirmed

  • Hana Gitelman had the ability of "digital communication".
  • Richard Drucker had the ability of "electronic communication".

Unconfirmed

  • According to the assignment tracker map, a man in Pakistan or Afghanistan is capable of remotely manipulating electronic data.

LimitsEdit

Hana GitelmanEdit

Hana appears to be able to "listen" to electronic transmissions with little or no effort. At present, there is no way to tell how strong a signal must be for Hana to detect it. While spying on Dr. Henry Strauss in Tanzania, Hana has to hide just outside his microbiology lab in order to be within range to intercept his wi-fi signals.

Hana can transmit signals to electronic receives. The range at which she can achieve this feat is limited; however, the device itself can presumably transmit the signal it receives from her normally. For example, she is able to transmit the signals she intercepts in Tanzania across the world to Odessa, Texas, but probably uses her satellite phone to do so.

Hana was overwhelmed by the signals she received when she first discovered her ability but signal overload does not seem to be a problem for her anymore.

Hana can apparently understand electronic messages sent using standard protocols intuitively, but she can not effortlessly decode encrypted messages or penetrate strong information security systems.

Hana also seems to take on some characteristics of a computer system. Her body seems to be infected by a virus, much like a computer would be, when she tries to crash a Company satellite.

She's also capable of transferring her entire consciousness as digital data; through her physical body perished, Hana continued to "live" inside the world wide web. Even at this state, she was capable of communicating with others and intercepting information sent through the internet.

Richard DruckerEdit

Not much is known about Drucker's specific limits with this power, but they appear to be similar to Hana's. Several of his drawings show that he could also visualize electronic signals, though they were limited mostly to radio signals as the internet wasn't invented when these drawings were made.

Drucker could also manipulate digital signals, not unlike Hana. However, his development with his ability appears to be greater than hers: he seemed to possess a transcendental understanding of the internet cyberspace, stating that it is a "sentient universe that communicated with me via musical notes". He was also capable of conjuring representations of his and Hana's mind inside the Company's mainframe.
