Can you use the following to improve the Psion Discipline Ability: Telekinetic Hurl effective range or is 30 feet the maximum for this ability and does not follow range increment rules?

Telekinetic Hurl (Su) At 2nd level, as long as you maintain psionic focus, you gain the ability to telekinetically hurl objects of up to 5 lbs. as a ranged attack at an enemy within 30 ft. Such attacks deal 1d4 points of damage due to the force exerted. This damage increases by 1d4 points of damage for every four psion levels thereafter.


Distance Thrower (Combat) Prerequisite: Str 13. Benefit: With a thrown weapon, you reduce your penalty on ranged attack rolls due to range by 2.

Throw Anything (Combat) Benefit: You do not suffer any penalties for using an improvised ranged weapon. You receive a +1 circumstance bonus on attack rolls made with thrown splash weapons. Normal: You take a –4 penalty on attack rolls made with an improvised weapon

Ranged and thrown weapons typically have range increments; another effect must say it has a range increment to have one

The psychokinesis discipline telekinetic hurl, a supernatural ability, has a maximum range of 30 ft. As a supernatural ability, it follows the rules for magic unless it says otherwise, and, in this case, there's no indication that it breaks those rules, and that means the effect's limited to the stated range. (You can read more about range increments and ranged and thrown weapons by searching for Melee and Ranged Weapons here.)

In short, the supernatural ability telekinetic hurl only does what it says it does, and feats like Distance Thrower and Throw Anything (that have benefits applying to thrown weapon) have no effect on the ability.
