Theory Citations Notes
Clairsentience, if controlled, can turn into or be used in a similar way to dream manipulation. None - Seeing the past of an object is different than being able to manipulate brain waves or reality.
Clairsentience may be used to read the mind of a telepath without feedback due to the fact that the power creates a one-way connection. None - Clairsentience is defined as being able to view the history of an inanimate object through touch.

- When Sylar grabbed Claire's hand to keep her from being sucked into a vortex, he was able to feel the pain that he had caused her. But Sylar wasn't "reading her mind" as such.

Clairsentience can only be used once on each object. None + Sylar used his ability on Claire in Angels and Monsters, however he did not use it on her again in An Invisible Thread, but instead used it on her necklace.
+ There is no reason why he wouldn't touch Claire again if he could.
Clairsentience is likely an active ability that the person needs to concentrate on to use; it would be a bit off-putting constantly seeing the history of every single thing you touched. Therefore, in future contacts with Claire, he may have just decided to not use his power. Also, he would need to use his power on Claire at least a second time to realize that he can only do it to an object once.
