The Psychic Vision is a mystical ability that perceives the residual information of an object and/or person by using senses. This gift of retrocognition (also known as postcognition) is one of the many spells featured in the 2010 Disney fantasy movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
Usage and History
The user obtains historical memories or sensations concerning beings and objects they can observe by their senses. With the items in their possession, they gain the knowledge including the makers, users, and even those who have on passing used the object, and what has been done with it. Also with any living beings or parts of the body, the user learns their general life-history, but does not gain anything of what they were thinking or feeling.
Maxim Horvath, Balthazer Blake's former best friend turned minion of the malicious Morgana le Fay, uses this gift of sight to track down the Grimhold in a place where Balthazar's occult shop Arcana Cabana used to be in Manhatten, New York.
