    It does mean what I think it means.

    Of course they can; that's not what's at-issue here.

    You are trying to use events in a work of fiction - events that make for a good read because they are implausible (otherwise the fictional character would hardly be memorable) - as evidence that the events, as they were written, are plausible in real life.

    Look, I could write a story where a ten year old boy could look at a flower and deduce the four forces of nature from it. It could happen. Anybody could do it. If they were incredibly lucky in real life. So what? I can't now use my story to try to lend credence to real-life scientists making a living out of looking at flowers.

    But they're not implausible.

    I was hoping for some input from folks who pay so-called psychics for advice.

    BTW: If I were psychic, I would not waste time getting small fees from folks who wanted advice.

    I would make money at casinos or by stock market transactions. ​
