An in-depth examination of how psychokinesis works and the technique for generating a PK effect. This is my personal theory.
I attempt to explain why telepathy, psychokinesis, etc., are not yet considered legitimate science, and why attempts at laboratory confirmation have generally failed – while the phenomena themselves are experientially real.
I perform a seven-day test to show conclusively that a psi wheel under a glass bowl does not move on its own by natural forces, i.e. aided by air currents, or temperature & lighting changes.
Are the Reptilians among us in human form? Can a physical body shapeshift? If so, the person concerned is likely to have a large dentist bill. “Sat what?” Watch and learn.
The results of my ongoing experiments with telekinesis have strongly indicated that the proximity of my body to the object affects success. The most recent results, however, cast some doubt on that theory:
The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) has hosted the One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge for many years. All you have to do is demonstrate a paranormal ability under strict test conditions. To date, no one has ever claimed the prize. Proof that psychic abilities, such as telekinesis, are fraudulent or self-delusional? Here are my thoughts.
In the following videos I discuss useful principles for discerning whether a video demonstration of telekinesis is real or fake. I expose some popular YouTube videos (particularly those of godspeed09) that are wrongly believed to be examples of advanced telekinesis.

Part 2 of 2:
A couple of days ago I finally cracked the barrier of doing telekinesis in a sealed environment – under a glass bowl. The psi wheel was perfectly still for many minutes, then I achieved multiple spins for the best part of a minute. I am now nine months into my training. It’s a great feeling to finally put to rest a nagging sliver of scepticism that I’ve felt for so long. Whatever is behind telekinesis, it’s weirder than the sceptics claim, without a doubt.
For me, the real excitement behind telekinesis lies in the gathering of evidence that there’s more to a human being than western science has yet fathomed.
I didn’t record the breakthrough moment. However, I produced the following video earlier this evening. Not quite as dramatic, but the real deal nevertheless …
Since I started putting videos of my telekinesis experiments on YouTube, I’ve been inundated with requests asking for advice. The most popular question is “What goes through your mind when doing telekinesis?” So I decided to make this video, condensing everything I know (or everything I’ve theorised) about the subject into ten minutes, as a guide for beginners who are struggling to get started.
I’m the habit of looking up the words “psychokinesis” and “telekinesis” almost daily on YouTube. I believe in telekinesis (because I can do it), but there are many hoax videos, and they can be spotted with a well-trained eye. What alarms me is that many of these hoaxes are getting a staggering amount of positive comments. It’s like a large part of the general public has given up on critical thinking.
User godspeed09 is the one who peeves me off the most. He can talk the talk. His profile says:
A group devoted in the research and practice of Telekinesis, with support from both philosophical and scientific studies. We seek to discover the untapped potential inside us for the betterment of the community and self. A lot of the things shown here are beyond what many have displayed in the past. Our technique on Telekinesis is a breakthrough from the conventional and our abilities are maximize for the greater that many have deem impossible in the past. We believe this will contribute to the new wave of science.”
It sounds good until you see the kind of videos he puts online. In general, he’s a big fan of “invisible” thread (a magician’s trick you can purchase on eBay). For something a little different, check out this one:
Then go to eBay and search for “folding dollar”. Yep, it’s there! godspeed09 is a clear and obvious trickster and yet he has presently clocked up 680 subscribers.
In spotting telekinesis hoaxes, look out for “constipated” facial gestures, magical hand fluttering, string pulling (pay careful attention to the behaviour of the object being pulled), “too good to be true” motion, use of static electricity or magnets, and misdirection. To be honest, what the practitioner does with his hands is the most common and obvious tell; if you see him doing the same motions that stage magicians do, then he’s almost certainly faking it.
Occasionally something comes your way that really challenges sceptical observation. Take a look at this. It has to be the most creepy psychokinesis demonstration I’ve ever seen. This is something called pyrokinesis (pyro as in fire):
I was gobsmacked the first time I saw this. I couldn’t figure out how it was done. Then somebody said “fibre optic laser.” I watched it all again and the pieces fell into place. Concealed down the man’s left sleeve is a fibre optic laser. My guess is it’s being voice-actived by that “eeeee” sound he makes. At this point I’m just making guesses, but with those guesses in mind, there are several obvious tells that quickly show themselves. He always positions his hand in a strange angle that keeps it out of harm’s way from the laser (and what do weird double-jointed finger twitches have to do with psychokinesis, anyway?). At 6:05 he uses crafty misdirection to make you think he is burning the paper with the finger-tip of his right hand. But if you look carefully at where he rests the paper, it’s in the precise position that allows the laser inside his left sleeve to burn through the underside of the paper. Busted! What would have really made this trick interesting is if one of the other guys present said “eeeeee” at the wrong moment!
People who believe in paranormal phenomena (and I’m one of them) would do well to remember that scepticism is a useful tool for avoiding self-delusion. I think scepticism gets a bad name because some sceptics use it to debunk genuine mysteries without proper investigation. These kind of people occasionally comment on my personal telekinesis videos with explanations like “It’s air currents,” or “It’s body heat.” The sceptic needs to remember that if he wants to hold on to a conventional explanation, he ought to test the convential explanation, rather than simply accepting it by default because it suits his materialist belief system. On the other hand, those who are more open to the unexplained need to get a much firmer grip on critical thinking, or else they will be prey to every psychic charlatan out there.
It has been quite a while since I posted anything on psychokinesis/telekinesis. Far from having given up on it, I’ve been practising regularly. Progress has been as slow as a drunken snail, but definite. Now, after five months, the kind of results I’m getting are much more dramatic than at the beginning, when I relied on keeping my hands extremely close to the “psi wheel.”
Some of you may remember a video I made on “no hands” telekinesis a few months ago, which I deleted soon after posting because I became uncertain about air currents in the room I was using. And since the psi wheel was moving back and forth erratically, I had no means of telling whether it was for real.
Now I present uni-directional movement on a psi wheel without the use of hands. I’ve even gone as far as putting on a facemask for the benefit of those who’ll say I’m breathing on it. I don’t mind looking silly, if it’ll shut those skeptics up.
The last shreds of doubt have now left my mind. Airflow, heat, static and magnetism do not explain telekinesis. Something else is going on that mainstream science doesn’t acknowledge. Based on my own attempts to find and refine a mental technique that works, and on the evidence that the ability grows with practice, it’s my strong conviction that mind is what’s responsible.
I have good and bad days practising psychokinesis. It’s hard to work out what factors are involved; I’ve even wondered whether eating pistachio nuts has had a negative effect! In any case, today was great. I achieved really effective, fluid spin on a psi wheel whilst keeping my hand a surprising distance from it. What’s particularly interesting is that I achieved consistent anti-clockwise motion, then consistent clockwise motion. That’s a first. Never mind the fact that I wasn’t consciously trying to change the direction! Even from the point of view of attaching a conventional explanation to this, the change in direction is weird. After all, when you pull the plug out of the sink, the water always spins away in the same direction, no matter what. Make of it what you will:
More and more, I am drawn to the idea that there is energy being emitted from my body – energy that is not heat or static. Is it this stuff they call “chi”?
So, it seems I can spin a psi wheel with the power of my mind (see previous post). Or am I being fooled by subtle drafts of air flowing through the room? Or is it perhaps the heat from my hands generating a convection current? Let’s test these theories …
