What is telekinesis?

Telekinesis - the ability to move objects by force of thought. It is a type of psychokinesis.

The term “telekinesis”, coined by the researcher of the supernatural A.N. Aksakov, is extremely rare (sometimes used in popular literature) in Western scientific works, but is widely used in Russia.

Demonstration of remote effects on objects became popular in the second half of the XIX century. According to eyewitness accounts, dishes flew during a seance, people flew into the air. The spiritualists explained what was happening by the presence of otherworldly forces in the hall.

For nearly 100 years, scientists have been trying to figure out what telekinesis is. A serious study of the issue began in the 1930s. Since then, more than 150 papers devoted to this phenomenon have been published. Repeatedly conducted experiments. Explain how people can move objects by force of thought, failed. Moreover, the debate continues about whether psychokinesis is possible in principle.

The manifestations of telekinesis include not only the movement of objects.The famous resident of St. Petersburg Ninel Kulagina demonstrated, for example, the contactless separation of protein from yolk, a change in the heart rhythm of a frog by willpower.
