Psychokinetic energy (PKE, psionic or psychic energy/force) involves activity dealing with conscious mental energy directly affecting physical objects. It is very specific to consciousness, will, emotion, memory, and other qualities equated with the mind. This energy is very common in Kaf, particularly in the ethereal plane.
An umbrella term that is used to describe a variety of abilities that directly manipulate this mental force. In the Arcane Realm, the field of study concerned with phenomena produced by this is called parapsychology.
Research has shown that psychokinetic energy has a sympathetic relationship with electromagnetism. This is believed to be the reason how spirits have PK serve as their sustaining life force, how the neural activity of physical brains produce PK, how PK can affect physical objects, or how electronics can detect the presence of PKE.
Spirits and Psychics are in tune with PKE to the level that they have the access to the following abilities:
The ability to manipulate objects by the power of thought. Telekinetic force works roughly as an analog to electrostatic force, a mental field generated from the psychic can produce waves that polarized objects which can be attracted or repelled by their field.
Transfer of information on thoughts or feelings between individuals via PKE.
Perception outside the known physical senses, instead relying on PKE.
Perception of information on thoughts or feelings between individuals via PKE.
Ability to locate objects, sometimes using a tool called a dowsing rod.
Healing by channeling psychokinetic energy.
Bodily levitation and flying, typically by pushing off the ground.
Precognition, premonition and precognitive dreams
Perception of events before they happen.
Psychometry or psychoscopy
Obtaining information about a person or object, usually by touching or concentrating on the object or a related object.
Gathering of information at a distance.
Retrocognition or post-cognition
Perception of past events that one was physically present or aware of at the time.
Diagnosing or curing diseases using religious devotion or similar strong beliefs.
Perception of energy fields surrounding people, places and things.
Astral projection or mental projection
An out-of-body experience in which consciousness becomes separate from the physical body.
Since the antiquity of the Arcane Realm, this force has been described usually as a product of enlightenment and the realm of sacred beings and spirits.
After the empirical revolution in academia, mental force was reexamined with its own specific field of study, parapsychology. It was found that spirits use PKE in the same way organic beings use the energy from breaking down chemical molecules into electrical energy. Spirits in fact use ESP as their way to perceive their environment and respond to stimuli of the ethereal plane, and what they draw upon to manifest in the physical plane.
Despite its development for spirits, it is possible for physical beings to harness this power in their minds.
Those who take it upon themselves to tap into this potential and develop these abilities are known as espers or simply psychics.
PK, EM, and Life Force
Because electromagnetism and PK are sympathetic, the same is also true of psychic abilities and life force. For spirits, PK serves as the driving force that keeps them alive, in the same way electric potential is for corporeal beings.
Back to physical beings, those known as psychics pull off their feats by channeling their life energy into their brain, an electromagnetic organ that fines tunes into PK. It’s accurate to say that psychokinetic energy is a form of life force made by thoughts from the mind.
The life sustaining essence of spirits is the mental force, Psychokinetic energy unlike that of most corporeal lifeforms which is their electromagnetism. This leads many to believe why incorporeal spirits can not be detected using the spectrum of light. Despite this technical difference, both seem to function similarly, with psychic chi trading conversion affinity with strong psychokinetic abilities.
A few spirits seem to also to have a electric potential to sustain them in tandem, (like jinn,etc.) effectively having their life force composed of both psi and chi.
Psychics focus on channeling their life force to their mind, allowing it to become psychokinetic energy. Thus it not wrong to say that psychic powers are an specialized extension of chi manipulation.
This is more pronounced for spirits, whose version of lifeforce (psi) is already psychokinetic.
