PostSubject: Psychokinesis   Tue Feb 24, 2009 8:22 am

The term Psychokinesis derives from "psyche", meaning mind, soul, heart, or breath; and "kinesis", meaning motion; literally "movement from the mind".
Also known as Telekinesis literally "distant movement", sometimes abbreviated to PK and TK respectively.

These terms generally refer to the direct influence of mind on a physical system that cannot be entirely accounted for by the mediation of any known physical energy.
Examples of psychokinesis could include distorting or moving an object, or influencing the output of a random number generator.

The study of phenomena said to be psychokinetic is an aspect of parapsychology.
Some paranormal researchers believe that psychokinesis exists and deserves further study, although the focus of scientific research has shifted away from large-scale phenomena such as attempts to influence dice to random number generators under laboratory conditions.

There is currently no scientific evidence that has gone unchallenged that shows psychokinesis actually exists although a meta-analysis of 380 studies in 2006 found a "very small" effect which could be explained by publication bias.

PK experiments have historically been criticised for lack of proper controls and repeatability, however, some experiments have created the illusions of PK where none exists, and these illusions depend to an extent on the subject's prior belief in PK.
