Yes, I guess it's a pretty good term, though when you think of "extra
sensory", it has to mean extra to the physical senses, but doesn't actually
say so and theosophists are notorious for entertaining the idea that there
are other senses.

Hodson, as I guess you know, often used the term "superphysical perception"
which seems to get over that problem, but is a bit of a mouthful unless you
shorten it to SP, but is that catchy enough? It's hard to please some people.
