uri gellerI have already posted an article on telekinesis in which I gave general information about this phenomenon and told about several scientific experiments on it. Now I’m going to speak of real examples of people known for telekinetic powers.

The case of spontaneous telekinesis happened to a French girl Angelica Cottin, when she was 14 years old. On the evening of January 15, 1846 she and three village girls were embroidering. Suddenly embroidery fell out of their hands and a lamp was thrown in the corner. Girls accused Angelica, because in her presence strange things always happened: furniture was moving, chairs were flying around the room.

Her parents organized a show in Mortane in order to earn some money. The girl caught the attention of a Parisian scientist François Arago. When the girl was in “electrified” condition almost everything that was in contact with her clothes was bouncing off. When Argo was trying to touch the girl he was experiencing a shock like after touching a source of electric current. If Angelica was close to a magnet even without knowing about it she began to shake. A compass however didn’t react to her presence. Most items that were moving were made of wood.

Angelica was not the only one who had this ability. In 1888 Dr. Ercole Ciaia from Naples described a wonderful medium Eusapia Palladino: “This woman attracts the surrounding items and lifts them into the air. She plays musical instruments without touching them.”

A well-known psychiatrist Professor Cesare Lombroso was shocked by what she did. She was moving furniture in the direction of the audience, and was materializing immaterial hands in the air, which looked real.

One of the most mysterious and famous person known for telekinetic abilities is a Soviet housewife Nina Kulagina. She had a number of very unusual abilities, studied by more than 40 scientists for nearly twenty years. But no one didn’t manage to find a scientific explanation of the phenomenal abilities of this woman. There is much evidence of these experiments in form of videos and documentary films. So what was Nina Kulagina capable of? She could move small objects by the power of thought or change the trajectory of their movement without touching them; she had an ability to emit ultrasonic waves, which is documentary proved. Till now it remains a mystery what the nature of these powers was and how the woman managed to develop them.

Ninel Kulagina was not the only documented example of the manifestations of telekinesis. A mystery person Uri Geller, born in Tel Aviv in 1946, has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to deform metal objects. From the age of four he revealed an ability to bend metal spoons by the power of thought. The so-called “Geller effect” became well known, when scientists observed him.  It was said that he could read minds, bend keys and other metal items simply by touching them or even looking at them.

In 1966 a British psychologist Kenneth J. Batcheldor after 20 years of studying the phenomena of telekinesis, published several reports that contained a conclusion that psychokinesis is possible. However, a question of how the mind produces psychokinetic effects is still awaiting its decision.

What kind of power is it? Where does it come from? There are incredible number of hypotheses and assumptions. Most believe that these abilities are hidden in non-performing segments of the human brain, which is able to generate powerful force fields and waves that affect the physical world. Others take the view that such powers are hidden in energetic structure of the human body, and everyone can simply learn to discover and manage it to get hold of these supernatural powers. Who is right no one knows. But I want to believe that any of us has hidden unrealized potential and capabilities…
