Telekinesis exists: scientific evidence

moving objects

Telekinesis is an ability to move inanimate objects at will: to turn a compass needle, to move objects in the air, to bent metal items, to extinguish the flame of a candle at a distance. Among the psycho-physical phenomena: clairvoyance, telepathy, and others, the phenomenon of telekinesis is one of the most intriguing.

These paranormal abilities have long interested the human mind. They have been known to yogis, mystics of antiquity, who were believed to be able to materialize objects, to move them or to lift them into the air.

In the XX century such abilities were observed in representatives of younger civilizations, who have never heard about yoga or any psycho-spiritual practices. What are these hidden psychic powers that enable people to affect material objects without direct physical impact?

Some researchers claim that the effect of telekinesis has to do with formation of powerful physical fields (telekinesis generates a strong electromagnetic field and acoustic signals with a duration of 0.1-0.01 seconds). Other researchers think that it may occur due to a mental effort (psychokinesis).

The difficulty of studying the phenomenon of telekinesis is attributable primarily to the fact that it is extremely rare. The results of experiments on telekinesis are hardly reproducible. It makes it difficult to study by conventional methods of modern science. Often the subjects themselves can’t explain how they do it and find it difficult to manage this condition and to reproduce it in subsequent experiments.

Another problem is that manifestation of telekinesis is associated with extreme physical and mental stress that could significantly damage the health. During its demonstration subjects experience a sharp activation of the mental processes, increased blood pressure and heart rate. Even after the end of the experiment a subject needs much time to return to a normal state.

It is noticed that telekinesis, as well as other psychic abilities often appears as a result of injury, illness, stress, electric shock… It confirms an idea of hidden reserves of the human brain.

In recent years after a number of experiments on telekinesis, Dr. Robert G. Jahn (the head of the Laboratory of abnormal studies at Princeton University) managed to prove that the human by his psyche can affect material objects. It was verified after thousands of experiments, which involved hundreds of men and women of all ages and professions. Subjects had to move a pendulum, placed under a transparent plastic cap. Five subjects were able to do it at any time and distance, the others – only in a few cases.

Scientists have found out that the power of mind can affect a variety of devices and liquid media such as highly precise chronometers, lasers, electrical generators of electromagnetic radiation, emulsions, colloids, water…

Some researchers claim that each of us is endowed with these “paranormal” abilities that once were completely natural and were widely used by people, but now they are in a latent state. Future experiments may help to reveal the nature of telekinesis. Till now we can only ascertain the existence of a special psycho-energy that provokes telekinesis.

      My grandmother had telekenetic abilities. And all SORTS of unexplainable things would happen around her. She had an extremely high IQ,like WAY high, but she also had a chemicle imbalance and was diagnosed manic-depressive & skitzophrenic. It was the craziest thing! (No pun intended, really!) One day she was teaching college, married and raising 4 children, just as “normal” & rational as you please…and the next day, she’s off-her-rocker cuckoo, waving a gun at my grandpa and thinking imaginary people were hiding under the floorboards with listening devices…but that was at her most extreme. 99% of the time, she was just my sweet, funny little granny. A wee bit confused maybe, but a real hoot! Anyhoo…This was back in the days of shock treatment (as mentioned in the article) and not only that, but she was struck by lightning THREE TIMES in her life! Most people don’t even get struck ONCE, much less THREE times! She was like a lightning rod! She also heard voices, which the family explained to me early in life. I had no problem with her hearing voices, I loved her no matter what problems she had, so it didn’t bother me until the day I heard one of “HER” voices myself! The dog heard it too! It was un-mistakably my grandfather’s voice calling to her from the back bedroom at the end of the hall. PLAIN AS DAY we heard it call her…”Pat?” Problem was, GRANDPA WASN’T HOME at the time! So what was this THING imitating his voice?! We all three froze (me, her & “little bit”, the dog) picture a chijuajua, big eyed and shaking…and then looked at each other. Granny had a slightly disturbed expression, but patted the couch beside her and told me it would be ok…and it was. (Still scared the doody out of me though!) But that was only the beginning of the weirdness. As I said, she had telekenesis. She moved a phone the last time I witnessed it happen. Not long before she died (bless her sweet little heart) But the point of this book I’ve written here, is that I think these scientists are spot-on about why it happens. There are contributing factors..
      (Mental stress, electromagnetism, shock-treatment, MIND POWER) it’s all energy and it DOES manifest in the most amazing ways! Thank you for reading my ramblings…really enjoyed this article! 🙂

    Take a look at this one:!
    It’s the most ‘real’ video I have found (of one of the most famous people possessing telekinetic powers).
    I’m also going to post another article on telekinesis with particular examples of people known for it.

    Ive noticed something odd that keeps happening with cellphones. Sometimes the phone will light up or even choose whatever i am about to do before i touch the screen. For whatever reason its usually when im playing a game or something like that. Whatever button on the screen i am about to press will press on its own or light up before i press it. Kind of hard to explain this away, so i thought it worth mentioning. Ive been looking online to see if anyone else has had this happen to them on a fairly regular basis but have not found anything yet…..

      Hello Patrick.

      Ive been watching your development for quite some time. You are truly gifted, as am I. Forgive my ambiguity, but i fear we havent the essence of time. For there is a grave danger approaching, and im here to make you an offer…….

      open your mind, so that we might find a more comfortable place for our conversation.

      I’ve experienced similar things. I first started noticing it when playing solitaire on my tablet. I’d get going so fast on a streak and make a move only to realize I had not actually touched the screen. I was still unsure until one day I activated an icon with a gesture with my finger at least 2 inches from the screen.

      You are not the only one once i was playing crysis and i fire a missile and there was no missile available cuz i have use them all … not lying was really focusing my mind into it and triple check before the launch of the missile i had zero available… then i focus and the character shot the missile…
      We are obtaining electromagnetism as species and we will be controlling other objects remotly…like once i want to call my mom so bad than later she called me saying if i have been calling her cuz me name showed in her phone and i didnt had a phone in that time neither i called her using the phone in the house …trully spectacular cuz the phone id showed my name and i wasnt in her name phone list and the number was not present as record it just showed my name XD … i have other tales but i want to master something maybe some day… maybe never but to humanity is coming …

    i’ve also expeirenced something like that.

    i have had expeirences where i can see the future or what people are about to say and i get a weird fuzzy feeling when i have incoming messages on my phone. no vibrate or volume at all.

    some times i have rare occasions where things fall down when items are hung up propperly in the kitchen and with no wind and doors shut when i was about to shut it with my hand but some times i think the house is haunted. even though i dont believe in ghosts.

    I’ve had odd situations like the cell phone radiation as well… I was listening to a song on the radio with my friends (a song that I didn’t know well at all; didn’t even really like) and I began to move my body with the music (which, by the way, I’ve realized to be the ultimate secret to dancing :P).. the anamoly here, is that without trying to control it, my feet began to tap to the music *exactly*. At first, I stopped trying to control it and they just went by themselves at an exact pace.. then I was able to stop paying attention and give full thought to conversation with my friends. The entire song was tapped and rolled through my legs and feet with no effort; though I could add more beats or take some out and play with it. It was amazing. I can purposefully control static of radios, affect others’ emotions… I wish someone else who has these abilities or knows of a psychic institute would give me some sort of (helpful) assistance to keep my on track.. does anyone know of something or someone like this???

      I experience similar things. Whilst most of what I can do is what I’ve learned from studying the human mind and the power of the subconscious all my life, some of my abilities seemed to become unlocked after having a near-death experience. I can sit in my room, focus on my light bulb and cause the light to start flickering erratically. I have blown three bulbs within a couple of weeks by doing so recently. I can also affect others emotions (empathy is emotional telepathy, emotion is energy in motion), I sometimes get precognition and I can also manifest beautiful loving orbs of light in the night sky. Amazingly, a few years back I myself was an atheist and believed that everything had a rational explanation. That is, until my lifetime studies of the subconscious mind led me to discovering the ultimate truth and I believe that becoming an atheist was simply just a part of that journey. In reality, atheists who assume that the subconscious is responsible are right but they’re wrong thinking that it ends there – it doesn’t.

      These offers are bullsh*t. They want to seek out those with paranormal abilities so that they can target you in order to suppress the truth and stop it from getting out. Even if successful, they will deny the results, not pay you and claim that you were unsuccessful. Additionally, the way they carry out these experiments under controlled conditions shows that they don’t have even the slightest understanding of how this phenomenon works and therefore they undermine these abilities by putting conditions in place which prevent the phenomenon from happening. I do not find science credible any more, especially not peer-reviewed science. It’s all junk science designed to disinform and to lead people away from the truth.

    sometimes i see the clock tick one second back….its random so how can that be explained?

  9. TP November 11, 2014 at 8:23 am - Reply

    So how about gravity? Law of physics? where the scientific explanation of this ability? If there is scientific data, where brain imaging tests, to see what kinds of brain regions correspond for this phenomenon? Those scientists in this article are widely known of their inaccurate experiments. So if experiment is not accurate, so is data. I think people just want to believe so deeply that they imagine things to move or do some other unnatural things… Maybe you should find real scientific experiments that there done on this phenomenon and then post that those abilities exist.

    • Marc Hubs (Sparkster) January 12, 2016 at 4:28 pm - Reply

      I can provide a scientific explanation but that explanation would be considered pseudoscience by conventional mainstream science and that’s because conventional mainstream science is utter bullsh*t designed to disinform and discredit certain truths. By the way, I myself am a qualified physicist and I stand by what I just stated. The true scientific data behind this phenomena is classified under military conditions. They do not want it becoming publicly accessible. The military are decades ahead of conventional mainstream science and they control it and manipulate it to only make publicly available information which they want publicly available. As I said in another comment, peer-reviewed mainstream science is junk science designed to disinform so that the true science can be used in secret projects for military applications..

    I don’t think that you have telekinesis. Because I was born with it and I can feel the object as if it was in my hand as I’m moving it .

    I achieved telekinesis inadvertently for the first time 2007 and no, it was nothing to do with a will to believe or with self-delusion or hallucination and there IS scientific explanation for it but the explanations are not considered credible by conventional science and that’s because conventional science is prone to confirmation bias. When they see something that doesn’t adhere to conventional scientific beliefs and assumptions (and believe me, there are plenty of assumptions in science) they simply refuse to accept it (cognitive dissonance). Telekinesis is definitely real and definitely possible and I know how it works. In my case, I managed to launch a large pile of toys all the way across a 21-ft room – that was NOT imaginary – I had to clean up all the toys the next morning. Even I went into a state of cognitive dissonance at first and refused to believe that it had happened, even though it was me who had achieved it myself. It took me quite a bit of time to actually come to terms with the fact that it was real and it happened. If you really want a scientific explanation then study quantum mechanics. It explains how these kind of phenomena are indeed possible due to the true nature of reality which is not acknowledged by mainstream science. The circular thinking pattern of “it can’t happen so it didn’t” is typical of atheism and yet atheists use the exact same argument against religious believers. It seems that atheism is not only the biggest form of cerebral narcissism but is also the most effective form of mind control in existence today.

      I stand with Marc Hubs, the mainstream is full of shit nower days, on the behalf of conventional science and a bunch load of other crap. Telekinesis has been real ever since mankind was born, all the way down from since Jesus and so on. What really trips me is people view Telekinesis as a joke, when its really not that complicated to think about. And when you do think about it, its like going through training wheels all over again, but this time your using your mind and energy on objects, sounds critical but its simple. Telekinesis is definitely possible, so I encourage you to view these links

    Who knows, maybe its as easy as Wim Hofs discovery. The iceman can stand in ice for up to 80 minutes maybe even more his outer body cools down while his core stays the same, he taught a couple vice reporters the technique which was a breathing system and cold immersion. They were able to climb a polish mountain at -20 degrees in their shorts not to mention the guy has been under scientific study with 12 of his students and they were able to defeat an endotoxin which in normal conditions produces shivering, fever, nausea in normal people for up to 4 hours. While him and his team felt nothing.

    Look him up. He’s real and has science to prove it. He claims he can tap into the inner most part of the brain the very primitive brain and the vice documentary is here

    He climbed mount Everest in his shorts. If anyone is super human, he is. We all have that power in us.

    Maybe its the same for this kind of stuff. Who knows. Maybe all it takes is one person to find it and show the rest of us.

    Now come on, guys! Maybe you’ve got fairies living at the bottom of your garden and you believe in Ghosts, Flying Saucers, Astrology and God! – The ONLY proven phenomenon in which matter is influenced by consciousness, is reproduced via various physical variations of the Two Slit Experiment. In 1996, the James Randi Educational Foundation began offering a one million dollar prize to anyone able to prove they possess psychic powers. Need I write more?

    We all have a telekinetic ability. It is simply a matter of developing and connecting with it. Even the Bible refers to this ability. It is a natural function of conciousness. There was a point in our evolution in which this phenomemon played a part in our survival.

    My dad was a rosicrucian and I study as a rosicrucian at 13 and learn mental telepathy and art of egyptian studies. My father hung a hat on the wall on a nail and knock the hand with his mind. I witness it not wires, just a nail in the wall. I use to get studies by mail and as I got more into it, I drop out. Telepathy and telekenistis is real I experience it. I also learn out of body experience

    I’ve been looking into this because of strange phenomena in my house, primarily things moving about on their own, usually when I have company. A relative pointed out last week that I’m always present, and the most common denominator. So I’ve been researching the possible connection between activity and a severe electrical shock I received at the age of ten, when I turned on a light switch with my other hand in a dish pan full of water. It was shortly after that it began, with a figurine sliding across a shelf and dropping slowly to the floor. I also have visions and dreams and know a lot of things ahead of time. None of it is fun. But it’s interesting to know it could be tied to the shock.
