Did You Know?
Tele- in Greek means "far off". The eternally appealing idea of moving an object remotely, using only psychic powers, has had a long life in films, TV shows, stories and novels, video games, and comics. But although some researchers believe in the existence of telekinesis (also known as psychokinesis), most scientists believe that any reported experiences have been the result of fraud, wishful thinking, or naturally explainable events.
