Telekinesis or Psychokinesis

Posted on Mar 9, 2021

According to Wikipedia:

Psychokinesis, or telekinesis, is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to influence a physical system without physical interaction. Psychokinesis experiments have historically been criticized for lack of proper controls and repeatability.

  • There is no proven evidence that psychokinesis is a real phenomenon, and the topic is generally regarded as pseudoscience.

In parapsychology, fictional universes and New Age beliefs, psychokinesis and telekinesis are different: psychokinesis refers to the mental influence of physical systems and objects without the use of any physical energy, while telekinesis refers to the movement and/or levitation of physical objects by purely mental force without any physical intervention.


You might have seen the ‘Carrie’ movie prank a few years ago on YouTube. It was based on Telekinesis and went kind of viral.

Here’s a screenshot of that:
