Parapsychology Parapsychology is the scientific and scholarly study of

certain unusual events associated with human experience. A parapsychologist is a scientist or scholar who is seriously interested in the paranormal events. Unfortunately, many

telephone books and on-line sites use "parapsychologist" as a synonym for psychic entertainer, mentalist, conjurer,

astrologer, or psychic reader. This is an inappropriate use of the term.

ParapsychologistParapsychologists study a number of

ostensible paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance,

psychokinesis, near-death experiences, reincarnation and apparitional experiences.

clairvoyance The term clairvoyance is used to refer to the ability to gain

information about, person, location through means other than the known human senses, a form of extra-sensory perception. A person has the ability of clairvoyance is referred to as a clairvoyant Claims for the existence of

paranormal and psychic abilities such as clairvoyance are highly controversial. Parapsychology explores this

possibility, but the existence of the paranormal is generally not accepted by the scientific community.

Telepathy Telepathy is the induction of mental states from one mind

to another. The term was coined in 1882 by Fredric W. H. Myers, and has remained more popular than the more-correct expression" thought-transference". Many studies seeking to detect, understand, and utilize telepathy have been done within this field. Claims of telepathy as a real phenomenon are at odds with the scientific consensus.

According to the prevailing view among scientists, telepathy lacks replicable results from well-controlled experiments.

Psychokinesis The term psychokinesis also referred to as telekinesis with

respect to strictly describing movement of matter, sometimes abbreviated PK and TK respectively, is a term

coined by publisher Henry Holt to refer to the direct influence of mind on a physical system that cannot be entirely accounted for by the mediation of any known

physical energy. Examples of psychokinesis could include distorting or moving an object.

reincarnation Reincarnation best describes the concept where the soul or

spirit, after the death of the body, is believed to return to live in a new human body, or, in some traditions, either as a

human being, animal or plant. This doctrine is a central tenet within the majority of Indian religious traditions, such as Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism; the Buddhist concept of rebirth is also often referred to as reincarnation. The idea

was also fundamental to some Greek philosophers .

precognition In parapsychology, precognition also called Future

Sight, and Second Sight is a type of extrasensory perception that would involve the acquisition or effect

of future information that cannot be deduced from presently available and normally acquired sense-

based information or laws of physics and/or nature.
