Telekinesis (Psychokinesis)

Is telekinesis or psychokinesis real?


Is psychokinesis or telekinesis real?

 What is psychokinesis / telekinesis?

    • psycho comes from the Greek ‘psyche’, meaning spirit, soul, mind, heart, or breath
    • kinesis also from Greek and means movement or motion
    • psychokinesis literally mind-movement and is sometimes abbreviated as PK
    • also known as telekinesis from Greek which literally means distant-movement, and is sometimes abbreviated as TK. It refers to the direct influence of the mind on a material object

Psychokinesis – Is the Force with Us All?
Is psychokinesis really possible? Can we really affect our environment using nothing but the power of the mind?

Uri Gellar claims as such, as have many other people. Their claims range from being able to change the temperature of water slightly to upsetting your grandmother by twisting her favourite cutlery set out of shape. Psychokinesis has also entered the realm of science fiction and the majority of us will likely remember a young Luke Skywalker trying to lift his X-Wing Fighter from the swamp with the help of a little green fellow that had difficulty with sentence structure. Is telekinesis or psychokinesis real?In fact, the Jedi’s had an arsenal of mind tricks that allowed them to pretty much cheat their way through their adventures but is it all just a matter of science fiction, or could it be science fact? 

Back here on planet Earth, psychokinesis is a branch of parapsychology that allows us to manipulate our environment using nothing but our mind. Within the field of psychokinesis you will find telekinesis which is, more specifically, the ability to move objects using nothing but thought. 

Of course, with science being unable to resist the urge to have a poke about and find out more, it has decided to have a look into this particular realm of the unexplained. As a result, there is mounting evidence that ‘the force’, or something resembling it, may not be restricted only to Jedi Knights and Sith lords after all. In fact, some say we can all learn telekinesis.

The Science 
It’s all very well taking the word of those that make extraordinary claims or fantasizing about possibilities in a galaxy far, far away but most of us want hard evidence and the good news is that we have it. 

At Princeton university Dr Robert G. Jahn, now retired, spent 25 years amassing an enormous database of empirical data on psychokinesis that clearly suggests the phenomena is very much a reality. He founded the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) group which undertook countless experiments under controlled, scientific conditions to measure the effect of the power of the human mind using a range of instruments. 

The instruments used were Random Event Generators (REGS), machines that are designed to give a completely random output such as random numbers. With no physical attachment to the machines whatsoever, subjects were then asked to attempt to influence the output of the machines using nothing but their mind. In the case of a random number generator, for example, they were asked to influence the next event by willing the next number to be higher or lower.

Is telekinesis or psychokinesis real?The project didn’t see test subjects picking up furniture and rearranging the interior decorating, the results were actually very small. So small that they would normally be disregarded and even go unnoticed but when compounded over the thousands upon thousands of snippets of data acquired they actually amounted to something really quite significant. It is important to remember at this point that this is not a knee-jerk reaction to a slight anomaly in just a few tests but a synopsis of a vast amount of data collected over a quarter of a century of controlled experiments. Such a vast amount of empirical data that has been gathered under scientific conditions is hard to deny. 

Mind Power on a Global Scale
Also working at PEAR was Dr Roger D. Nelson and he took Dr Jahn’s work to another level entirely with the Global Consciousness Project. Instead of testing just one individual at a time he used the same methods to test groups of people and the results were very impressive. Working in group meditations to begin with, Dr Nelson then stepped up his research by connecting 70 REGS in locations around the world to his computer at Princeton. For the most part the charts showed nothing out of the ordinary at all, until an extraordinary event occurred.  

What made the monotony of watching a graph with all the action of watching paint dry worth it was what happened during major international events such as Diana’s death or 9/11. Is telekinesis or psychokinesis real?When events of this scale did occur, the graphs would go through the roof. It was even possible to predict heightened graph activity when a major event was approaching. When New Year celebrations were approaching, for example, it was known beforehand that the charts would go through the roof and it was even possible to follow different celebrations getting under way across the world as midnight swept across the globe’s different time zones. 

Some might choose to disregard the project as ramblings from a megalomaniac mad scientist hell bent on world domination and a penchant for assistants with a bad back. This is simply not the case for the global consciousness project however as the project was not overlooked by Dr Nelson only but was also contributed to by 75 well respected scientists from around the world. It is also the longest running and most thorough single experiment into any paranormal subject undertaken. When such a large group of respected scientists present findings from their experiments, it is wise to listen to what they have to say. 

The Scientific Community
Those behind the investigations remain adamant that the science is very real with Dr Jahn going as far as to say: “If people don’t believe us after all the results we’ve produced, then they never will.”

Physicist Dick Bierman said of the Global Consciousness Project that the effects were very real and the only thing in dispute is what the results actually mean.

The recording sites for the GCP are referred to as “eggs” and comprise a hardware REG or RNG attached to a computer running custom software.

It would be easy for some to dismiss the work done by Dr Jahn as worthless due to the lack of peer reviews but that does not tell the whole story. The fact is that many in the scientific field simply dismiss the subject as preposterous without even looking at the reports. Others think that lending their support to something considered to be mumbo jumbo is a risk to their credibility and would rather avoid it so as not to harm their own career prospects. 

If research into Psychokinesis continues and the experiments continue to show similar results then there will come a point when the scientific community on the whole will have to begin taking it seriously. Perhaps one day with a better understanding of the science behind ‘the force’, a little boy’s wish of becoming a Jedi Knight could be more of a career move than a wild fantasy.

Interesting and well written article.


Jessica March 1, 2015 at 6:51 pm

It’s real :)


Cole Mckishen February 11, 2015 at 5:13 pm

When I was a kid I would try to move stuff with my mind. Just this Friday I tried my telekinesis at the skating rink when we were playing a spin the bottle game and it landed on my friend and her brother because I told it to.


Andrew Melder Mountzouros December 20, 2014 at 6:52 am

I agree with Dash. If we use this for our own personal gain then we won’t amount to anything. Can you tell us where to start please? I will tell everyone I know about this website. I know a few people who also believe in this and if we were to do it, should we view it in a scientific matter, or a superstitious matter?


Dash December 10, 2014 at 5:10 am

I would like to be able to do this but for the betterment of mankind.


Andrew Melder Mountzouros December 6, 2014 at 9:48 am

It has always been my life’s dream to lift objects with my mind, I can feel the power in my hands, and in my mind, but they give no result, only once have I’ve performed this amazing feat; I was in my room, my parents had just lectured me, and I was so furious that I threw my watch at the window and broke it – only my watch was on the other side of the room. I would like to know if I have the potential to becoming telekinetic. Please write back. I’ve written books about this kind of stuff, and I am only 15. Thank you.


alex March 12, 2015 at 2:50 am

yes you can, first you need to understand about time,sleep,being awake,magnetism. i am curious about your feat and i’d like to chat with you about it as long as i feel ur keeping it for urself only or the ones seing won’t put me at any risk. i live for these things ;)


Alba November 30, 2014 at 11:35 am

Everyone wants to be “special”.


joe March 20, 2015 at 4:26 am

because every one in life is special you just have to have faith in your self and find the better in all I know I my self have been the world worst critic at times but what ever we all have opions that what makes us human live and learn


Greg October 21, 2014 at 8:31 am

I personally have experienced this since a young child. Moving things with out trying materializing missing objects with a thought. I have always wrote it off as coincidence claiming there is no scientific integrity in what had happened. I was so completely consumed with atheism that I refused what was actually happening. I have begun performing these feats in public places. I know it is dangerous to do so but I wanted to be sure I am not a crazy person. I have made sure the environments are relatively safe.. sort of as I do it at gatherings where my friends are. I have done a great many things now in front of more than 20 people whom of which are now telling me you are not crazy but you need to stop before you become a guinea pig. Should I really be concerned with being dissected?


Joe December 13, 2014 at 9:25 pm

I would only show those who I could trust, I mean really trust, but keep practicing!


Kyle October 14, 2014 at 11:02 pm

I have wondered about TK, but growing up as a Christian and still a firm believer in God, I worry about the consequences of trying to get involved with such phenomena. I don’t wanna become some mind freak but moving some object with my mind would be so cool. If anyone here has done such, no matter the size of an object or material, help me learn how to do so.


Joe December 13, 2014 at 9:30 pm

I moved simple things like a bottle cap, pencil and once when no one was looking I moved some plastic bowling pins.

There are many scientific journals detailing such things. The trick, I believe, is imagination. If you cannot image or hold your focus for any length of time it may be difficult to achieve.


Dakota September 30, 2014 at 9:50 am

Do you think telekinesis is is possible (for me), and if so how do you recommend getting started?


Joe December 13, 2014 at 9:32 pm

Knowledge is power and power is wisdom. Imagination is key. Whatever your desire is you are only limited to what you can imagine.


bryan March 3, 2015 at 6:15 am

tk is well known in fact some say that humans will have this ability in the future as part of evolution


Aldrin September 17, 2014 at 2:11 pm

I’am really interested in topics like this, however, not only me, but also my friends. What way do you recommend starting off? Do you know of any organization that can help improve psychic abilities?


Max September 1, 2014 at 6:23 am

For those who require a “scientific” explanation of telekinesis: Einstein’s equation e=mc*2 suggests a potential equivalence between “energy” and “mass,” that is, between “spirit” and “matter.” They are not two separate things, but rather two facets of one thing. We direct thought, thought fires neurons, neurons transmit energy via a flow of electrons, electrons comprise matter, ergo, we are all “telekinetic.”


Joe December 13, 2014 at 9:35 pm

So how would one quantify that in terms of a working model?


Mr. Jones August 1, 2014 at 4:15 pm

The thought of performing telekinesis, or even a small percentage of people, or scientist, with positive results is amazing. Having this ability would be mind bending!


richie March 3, 2015 at 4:27 am

iv realized that everyone in here has used the term ability this is not ability u all can do it by focusing hard enough on one object then trying to move it.


ADAM EMMANUEL July 19, 2014 at 2:52 am

I want to ask if telekinesis is possible for me? If yes, what are the steps I should take, with little money, I might add?


Tim Grover July 5, 2014 at 2:55 pm

What of the brain activity of the subjects attempting to affect the REGS? One could say that, after seeing this report, that telekinesis is real, but how does it work? What sort of phenomenon does the mind create to affect the materiel world without using our own physical bodies?


Jarryd H July 16, 2014 at 3:45 pm

Some interesting things floating around here. And also a good question, Tim. I wouldn’t be surprised if in fact that phenomenon was actually energy from the body (from a scientific point of view, not a hippy one), that if concentrated can cause some change in the surrounding environment.

I think when such events take place, they happen so fast and instantaneous we simply don’t notice them or are just not open minded enough. Furthermore, when I was young, many things happened like making the whole room shake. That incident only happened once and I was very tired for days afterwards. I also went into a very deep depression for 12 years. Like I said, it only happened once, luckily.

When you’re young it is easy to notice things others don’t. That is the key, I believe, to understanding telekinesis; it is just like a muscle. If you were to spend any time practicing this, notice how strained you feel. Its only a matter of time before it will be reproduced repeatedly. The main problem is people’s beliefs and social training and how one is brought up to think. For those new to this, search out Remote Viewing and Ingo Swan, Ed-Dames or Lynn Buchanan. People often only see what is comfortable for them and not beyond. If one steps outside of that realm, then a new world opens up. Of course, don’t take my word for it. Yes, I have researched this subject but don’t claim to have proof. If I did, I would probably keep it to myself anyway.


Misty October 15, 2014 at 6:03 am

You made your whole room shake?
I believe that these powers are real. I’d love to know more.


dakjen December 13, 2014 at 9:54 pm

Sure, send me a email anytime I will try to answer if I can. It was pure spontaneous and only happened a couple of times and it was a argument between myself and a sister mocking me about Star Wars. She told me there no such thing so I said I can prove it. I closed my eyes, imagined, cleared my mind, then whole room shook. What I felt prior to that was a vibration all around my feet almost like a wind tunnel.


dakjen December 13, 2014 at 9:48 pm

There a technique called areokinisis, manipulation of temperature and air. Also an old Buddhist meditation called “tumo”.
I believe could be used for that kind of thing too.


Matthew Seay June 29, 2014 at 10:07 am

I would enjoy taking your research to another level, past the computers, to simply show you the abilities I have. I have just started doing these things, so Im unaware of all that I can do, however, would like to speak with you so please contact me at my email address.


Kyle October 14, 2014 at 11:05 pm

I would like to know about your abilities. Email me and tell me how you acquired them. Teach me how to do the same.


Thomas June 19, 2014 at 4:45 pm

I completed a month’s course in telekinesis and now it’s around my 5th month and am progressing very well. I am not the only one to have unlocked these mental blocks that stop regular people from doing this. I did all this through training almost every day for at least 3-4 hours on the first 2 weeks and then 2 hours after. It may not be scientifically recognised as real or possible but I can tell you it’s very real! Myself and others have applied to organizations, like the famous James Randi challenge, but have had no response which clearly tells us they have no real interest in this sort of thing.
