I think I see our differences here. You are examining telepaths as their own population, whereas I am examining them as a small part of the larger human population. So the way I've been looking at it, there's really only half of a bell curve, with the immense bulge being located at P0 or human-normal, then tapering down to the few hundred P12s (and Lyta as an outlier).

Your way of looking at it makes sense too -- from a different set of premises. I think we need more data before we figure out who's correct.
