You have learned to see trough the illusion of the world and perceive the true reality beyond. You see through Invisibility powers for the rest of the scene. You automatically spot a creature using an Invisibility power in plain sight. You can "see" within Mind meters even in total darkness, blindfolded or when obscured by smoke, mist and similar hindrances. Your perception focuses on the chi of living creatures. You can also sense the presence - but not precise location - of other power users, and you can tell the difference between named and unnamed characters. It is still possible to Sneak on you as long as the sneaking creature has normal concealment—a sneaking character actively tries to conceal his aura, even if he does not realize it. You can perceive creatures and other strong sources of Chi beyond this range if they are in plain sight.
This is a meta-power that affects other powers. In some campaign worlds there is a strong Origin Divide among different origins. Check with your GM regarding your campaign. Origins that are opposed cannot cannot be modified by meta-powers; it is as if powers from the opposing origin was actually a schtick rather than a power.
All of your own powers that affects you cannot be detected at range. Powers that specifically look for other powers will fail unless the searcher is actually touching you. You can choose not to hide certain powers.
You cannot be perceived by Scry powers unless your enemy scores an Outcome matching your Reflexes. This has no effect on normal Sneaking.
