Are Gems Telepathic?
Whilst re-watching ‘Bubbled’, a science-y science thought came to me.
THERE’S NO SOUND IN SPACE!
It would be scientifically impossible for Eyeball’s voice to be heard in space- unless Steven and Eyeball’s conversation partially takes place telepathically- A “group chat” in their minds if you will!
However, this is not the only evidence. In ‘Monster Reunion’, we discover that Gems have their own language.
It’s not known if Gem Language sounds any different, but if it does, how would newcomers to Earth, such as Peridot, Jasper and the Rubies be able to speak English? They must’ve translated it telepathically!
This would also work with Steven’s abilities to visit other people’s minds- if all gems were to have low-level telepathy, would that make Rose Quartz (and then Steven) a kind of “super-soldier”? She may have been given special abilities for some reason (maybe to be Pink Diamond’s personal guard), which would’ve heightened the low-level telepathy all Gems share.
This also links with the “broken” mental nature of the corrupted gems. The mind is everything with these gems- Fusion is an amalgam of the mind. Corruption is a tear in the mind. The gem’s forms are a personification of their mental state, ergo their mind.
