There is a psychic power called telekinesis, or psychokinesis, that references a unique ability that a person may have. In the 70s, a psychic by the name of Uri Geller mesmerized people in person, and on television, by bending spoons with his mind. Although there were many people, including the narcissistic Amazing Randi, that tried to prove him to be a fraud, no one ever has.
There are many more people in the world, over the last hundred years, that have shown what appeared to be telekinetic powers. The question is: Is telekinesis real or not? Let’s dive into this very interesting topic.
What Is Telekinesis Exactly?
Telekinesis is simply the power to move objects with your mind. It is also the ability to affect physical objects, such as a spoon that bends, while you are holding it. It is thought to be a latent power that we all possess, but only a few people have actually harnessed this ability. It calls to mind the very popular superhero movies, yet it seems to be a very real ability, as long as you know how to access this with your mind.
How Do You Do Telekinesis?
First of all, it should be stated that there are no scientific studies which have ever proven telekinesis to be real. There have been many attempts to quantify this power, but to date, no one actually has. What we have to rely upon are the many stories of people that have used telekinesis before. Just like Gellar, Other individuals such as Nina Kulagina of Russia, and Stanislawa Tomczyk, are thought to have been authentic with their displays of this unique ability. It seems that telekinesis is possible when you are able to clear your mind. It will the activated in the absence of doubt. More specifically, your intentions to affect a physical object should be crystal clear, and in that state of mind, it is possible for telekinetic powers to emerge.
Will This Ever Be Proven?
It is doubtful that any scientific study that is done with telekinetic individuals will ever be done. If it is, there is a consensus that it will never be revealed. If it could be shown that people could actually move objects with their minds, or if they could levitate themselves, this would change the common worldview that we all have.
Telekinesis does seem to be a very legitimate power, evidenced by videos, testimonials, and images that we have seen over the decades. Although there are few people that have achieve the notoriety of Nina Kulagina or Uri Geller, there may be several people in the future that might be able to make this an accepted reality. In the same way that the four-minute mile was thought to be impossible until Roger Bannister accomplish this in 1954, thus paving the way for others to do the same, perhaps that is what we need. Just one individual that can conclusively show that telekinetic powers are real is what will open the proverbial floodgates. So is telekinesis real or not? It is not conclusive now, but it is certainly something that seems to be a very real power that all of us can potentially access.
