"Beyond the pale" is often used in this context, probably just as often as "beyond the veil." Although beyond the veil would be the more precise phrase since that typically only refers to the deceased.

I think it's fine. He's just using this definition (which is, incidentally, the same pale that things go beyond.)

pale(peɪl)
— n
1. a wooden post or strip used as an upright member in a fence
2. an enclosing barrier, esp a fence made of pales

Nah, he's probably just used beyond the pale on accident.

Unless of course he meant psychic stuff is inappropriate behaviour

The protagonist of today's strip reminds me of Professor Xavier from the X-Men.
Look he even has that armchair thing going on in the second panel.

This reminds me of an old Econ joke:

A mathematician, an accountant and an economist apply for the same job.

The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks "What do two plus two equal?" The mathematician replies "Four." The interviewer asks "Four, exactly?" The mathematician looks at the interviewer incredulously and says "Yes, four, exactly."

Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question "What do two plus two equal?" The accountant says "On average, four - give or take ten percent, but on average, four."

Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question "What do two plus two equal?" The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says, "What do you want it to equal"?
