A useful point and counterpoint to make for those who use extended forms of sight, whether you are seeing the quantum radiations of a person's "emotional body" (aura) or simply seeing right through their physical flesh:
Should we consider the act of looking at these other parts of the human as similar to looking at the mundane body, and therefore are we violating someone's privacy?
This is different. By studying the radiations or inner structure of the people around us we are gaining valuable practice and knowledge. We are also refining a form of sight that can be used to greatly benefit people, even those casually observed if we happen to spot a health concern.
I know my personal desire has been to follow the latter opinion, and just consider it being different and justified because it's "for science!"
But if we want to one day have a society where many people both possess powers and use them wisely, I think we should start constructing our behavior today in what will be the most ethical philosophy in the long run. I'm not saying that we should only acknowledge one of those two perspectives and abandon the other, as inflexibility often leads to clouded judgement in unforeseen situations. But I think as time goes on and more and more perspectives on such issues are raised, we should found our thought in a pattern of ethical consideration, one in which we consider the world we would one day like to live in and begin paving the way early with our thoughts and actions.
I should add that there is probably a caveat for many people who perceive people's emotional state, as I think that this affinity naturally leads to smoother interpersonal interaction between individuals when it is properly developed. My perspective here may be lacking, but at least in what I have experienced I have only known those forms of perception, when they bud forth from one's empathetic and institutional side, to be of a benefit to all person's involved.
