Yes sentience and telepathy, including I think telekinesis, are latent qualities existing within the human psyche.
Only a few individuals tap these abilities from time to time, whether by accident or otherwise.
Telepathy in animals I think is a natural condition, as with eating and breathing.
However, inanimate objects themselves cannot possess one iota of these "qualities" even given unlimited periods of time.
Further, the universe is winding down as the 2nd law of thermodynamics states, so even if it were possible for an inanimate object to "evolve" consciousness, there is not much time left for such a condition to be realised and therefore no purpose.
