Is Telekinesis Real? (And What Is It?)
Many sci-fi shows and movies invoke the concept of people moving objects with their minds. But is telekinesis real or is it just in the realm of movies.

What Is Telekinesis?
Telekinesis is the ability to move objects with only the power of the mind. It is a common ability in many forms of fiction with Stranger Things one of the most recent. It is often used by superheroes and villains but is telekinesis real?
The word telekinesis is said to be first used in 1876 by Alexander N. Aksakof in his book Psychical Researches. The word comes from the Greek words for “far-off” and “movement”.
Telekinesis is often portrayed as a very powerful ability allowing the user to move objects of great size and weight. In reality the ability is much more limited.
Most people who claim to have telekinetic ability can only move objects that are very small and light. The largest object that has been moved by someone claiming to have telekinesis allegedly is a piano which was moved a distance of about 12 feet (3.7 m). However, we’ve been unable to find a source for this claim or any evidence to back it up.
There are many theories about how telekinesis works but no one knows for sure. Some believe that it is a form of extrasensory perception (ESP) while others believe that it is a form of psychokinesis (PK). At present there is no scientific evidence that telekinesis is real and it is not recognized as a scientific ability. However there have been many anecdotal reports of people claiming to have telekinetic abilities.
Some people believe that telekinesis is a real ability that can be developed through training and practice. There are many books and courses available that claim to teach telekinesis. Whether you believe telekinesis is real or not it’s still a very interesting topic to explore. If you are interested in learning more about this ability there are many resources available online and in libraries.
Is Telekinesis Real?
There is no scientific evidence that telekinesis is possible or even real and it’s generally considered to be a pseudoscience. It also breaks several fairly well established laws of physics such as the conservation of momentum among others. However there have been some anecdotal reports of people claiming to have the ability to move objects with their mind.
One famous example is the case of Uri Geller. A self-proclaimed psychic who gained notoriety in the 1970’s. Uri was known for his alleged mind control abilities such as telepathy, telekinesis, psychokinesis and psychometry. He has also claimed the ability to bend spoons with his mind and to psychically influence the outcome of events. Geller’s claims have been debunked by many skeptics and he has been accused of using sleight of hand to perform his tricks.
Other supposed cases of telekinesis have also been exposed as hoaxes. In one famous case two girls in England claimed to have levitated a table with their minds. Although after an investigation it was revealed that they had used a hidden thread to move the table.
So if there is no scientific evidence to support the existence of telekinesis why do people believe in it?
One reasonable explanation is that people want to believe that they can have or develop supernatural powers. Another possibility is that people mistake normal human abilities for telekinesis. For example, people may mistakenly believe that they have moved an object with their mind when they have actually just nudged it with their body.
At present there is no scientific evidence that telekinesis is real, but this does not mean that it is impossible. Some people may have genuine abilities that are not yet understood by science. But until there is more concrete evidence telekinesis must remain in the realm of fiction….. for now at least.
What do you think? Is telekinesis real? Do you have experiences you could share with us in the comments below?
Mythology and Telekinesis
Telekinesis is a common ability in mythology and has been featured in many stories and films. The word telekinesis is derived from the Greek words tele, meaning “far”, and kinesis, meaning “motion”. It is often abbreviated as TK.
Telekinesis is an ability that has been present in mythology for centuries. The first recorded instance of telekinesis was in the Greek myth of Perseus. In this story Perseus was able to use his mind to control the movements of his sword which he then used to kill the monstrous Medusa.
Other examples of telekinesis in mythology include the Norse god Thor who was able to control his hammer with his mind, and the Hindu god Vishnu who was able to control the movements of his enemies. Telekinesis has also been featured in many modern stories and films. One of the most famous examples is the film Carrie in which the title character uses her telekinetic powers to exact revenge on her bullies.
Despite its common portrayal in fiction there is no scientific evidence that telekinesis is a real ability. This does not stop people from believing in it, in fact there are many people who claim to have telekinetic abilities.
Can Telekinesis Move Water
The ability to move water with the power of the mind is a skill that has been long sought after by those with a keen interest in the paranormal. While there are many who claim to have this ability there is little scientific evidence to support these claims.
The most common claim is that telekinesis can be used to create waves or ripples in water. This has been captured on film and video many times but there is no concrete evidence that this is anything more than an optical illusion.
There have also been claims that telekinesis can be used to move objects that are submerged in water. Again, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims.
So can telekinesis move water? There is no scientific evidence to suggest that it can but there are many who believe that the phenomena is real.
Could Moses Have Used Telekinesis to Move Water?
Moses was man who was described and talked about in the Holy Bible and the Quran. He was a prophet, lawgiver and leader of the Israelites. According to the biblical narrative he was born in Egypt and later led the Israelites out of slavery. He is said to have parted the Red Sea allowing the Israelites to escape from the pursuing Egyptians.
There is no scientific evidence that telekinesis is a real phenomenon and therefore it is not possible to say for certain whether or not Moses could have used this ability to part the sea. There are some plausible explanations how Moses could have been seen to part the Red Sea, such as using a natural phenomenon like a tsunami. Scientists suggests that its more likely that is was wind that created the “parting” of the sea. Research carried out by the US National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) suggested that it’s possible for unusually strong winds to achieve this. Albeit there is no way to know for sure what really did happen as the Bible does not give any clear explanation.
Some people believe that it is possible to use telekinesis for various purposes including moving objects and influencing the behavior of other people. If telekinesis is a real ability then it is possible that Moses could have used it to part the sea.
There are many stories and legends about Moses and it is difficult to know which if any, are true. The parting sea is one of the most well-known and well-documented stories in the Bible. If Moses did use telekinesis to part the sea, it would have been an incredible feat. It is good to remember that every myth and far-fetch story always starts with with a grain of truth.
Can I Use the Power of The Mind to Move Things?
The human mind is an amazing thing. It is the center of our thoughts, emotions, and memories. It controls our ability to think, reason and imagine. It has the power to influence our behavior and the way we see the world. But can we train it to move things? So, although we’ve said above that there’s no scientific evidence to support telekinesis, we do believe that anything is possible…….
So if you want to try to train your mind to perform telekinesis, we can’t see why you shouldn’t. You might become the person that can provide scientific evidence for telekinesis – who knows.
There are several ways to help train and focus the mind, which in turn could assist in developing the ability of telekinesis. These methods include the power of suggestion and psychokinesis. The most common way is through the use of the mind’s eye also referred to as the third eye. This is when the person using their ability focuses their thoughts on an object and wills it to move. But can we make things physically move using this method?
The Mind’s Eye
The minds eye is a concept used in psychology to refer to a person’s ability to see mental images. The term was first used by William James in his book The Principles of Psychology. The mind’s eye is different from the actual eyes in that it is not limited by what is physically present. It allows people to see things that are not physically present such as memories or imaginations.
The mind’s eye is mostly associated with visual imagery seeing things in one’s mind that are not actually present in the environment. This might include visualizing a memory, imagining future events or seeing images during a dream. The mind’s eye is an important tool in many different fields. Artists often use it to help them visualize their creations and architects to plan out their buildings.
Power of Suggestion
This is when the person uses their ability to influence the thoughts of others in order to get them to do what they want. But can the power of suggestion be used to manipulate and move objects?
In one well known experiment Japanese researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto demonstrated that human thoughts and emotions have the ability to change the physical structure of water molecules.
In his experiment he exposed water to different words, phrases and music he then froze the water and examined the resulting crystals under a microscope. The crystals that formed after being exposed to positive words and music were beautiful, while the crystals that formed after being exposed to negative words and music were ugly and deformed.
He claims that the structure of the crystals reflects the positive or negative energy of the source material and can be seen through a microscope. Although his work has been widely criticized by scientists who argue that his experiments are not rigorous enough. What is does show is that this experiment demonstrated that human thoughts and emotions can actually change the physical structure of water molecules.
So, if the power of suggestion can change the physical structure of water, what else can it do?
Psychokinesis is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind. This is when the person uses their ability to directly influence the physical world around them. You can be forgiven for thinking that they are the same thing because telekinesis and psychokinesis are often used interchangeably but there are subtle difference between the two. The difference between the two is that psychokinesis requires the user to be in physical contact with the object while telekinesis requires no physical contact.
To put it another way, psychokinesis is the ability to manipulate matter with the power of the mind while telekinesis is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind. Psychokinesis is more general and includes any manipulation of matter while telekinesis is more specific, referring to the direct manipulation of physical objects.
How to Begin Practicing Telekinesis
There are a few things you need to know before you can start practicing telekinesis. Firstly you need to understand that your mind is a very powerful tool. It is capable of much more than you may realize. Secondly you need to know that telekinesis is not magic.
Is telekinesis a real ability that can be learned and mastered with practice? Anything is possible but you wont know for sure unless you really try…
Here are a few tips to help you get started with practicing telekinesis:
- Believe in yourself. The first and most important step to learning telekinesis is to believe that you can do it. Your mind is a very powerful tool and you can use it to do amazing things.
- Visualize what you want to happen. When you focus your mind on what you want to happen you are more likely to achieve it. So if you want to move an object with your mind, visualize the object moving.
- Practice regularly. Like any skill the more you practice telekinesis the better you will become at it. Set aside some time each day to focus on your telekinetic ability. Learn to meditate this is a good way to clear and focus the mind.
- Stay positive. It is important to stay positive when practicing telekinesis. Believe in yourself and your ability to do it.
- Be patient. Learning telekinesis takes time and patience. Do not get discouraged if you don’t see results immediately. Just keep practicing and you will eventually see results.
And remember just because there is no solid scientific evidence doesn’t mean telekinesis isn’t possible, it may just simply be that we haven’t yet learnt how to focus the mind efficiently enough.
What we do know is that he power of ours minds is amazing and potentially limitless. The mind is a powerful tool that we all have at our disposal. The mind has the ability to heal the body to manifest our desires and to create our reality.
Is There a Difference Between Telekinesis and Manifestation?
Telekinesis is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind. Manifestation is the ability to create something from nothing. But are these two abilities the same?
The answer is no. They are two different abilities with two different purposes.
Telekinesis is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind. This can be done in a number of ways including using the power of the mind to move objects physically or using the power of the mind to influence the behavior of objects.
Manifestation on the other hand, is the act of bringing something into being through the power of thought. Proponents of manifestation believe that it is possible to create anything you desire through the power of positive thinking.
While they are both abilities that use the power of the mind they are two different abilities with two different purposes.
There are many documented cases of the mind having a positive impact on the body. For example, there have been cases of people with cancer going into remission after using visualization and positive thinking. The mind can also help to heal physical injuries faster. Indeed, the well documented and scientifically studied placebo effect is really just the mind healing our bodies or making us feel better.
The mind can be used to manifest our desires. This is done by focusing on what we want, and then taking action steps towards our goal. The mind is a powerful tool that can help us to create the life we want.
The mind can also create our reality. This is done by the way we think and feel about ourselves and the world around us. Our thoughts and emotions create our reality. If we want to change our reality, we need to change our thoughts and emotions.
And in a similar way to all of the above, many people believe that the power of the mind can be used to move objects. Even though there’s no scientific evidence to back this up and it breaks various laws of physics such as the conservation of energy and the conservation of momentum but many people believe it – and some claim to be able to do it.
The mind is a powerful tool that we all have at our disposal. It is up to us to decide how we want to use it.
