      Telekinesis

      A few weeks ago, my friend started talking about telekinesis. I couldn't help but to laugh. I basically called bullshit on it and told him it is impossible. Yesterday, out of interest, I started researching it. I have since been convinced of its existence. I've learned that it takes meditation to mentally prepare, so I think it will tie in nicely with my lucid dreaming. Has any one else here tried their hand at telekinesis? Have you had any results? Any tips ?

      Why do you think it exists?

      It'd be very easily to experimentally verify, but it hasn't been.

      I figured that people wouldn't waste their time doing something that is impossible. There are many websites about learning telekinesis where people talk about their experiences and whatnot.

      How about you try experiment with it first and once you have some results you can post them here, so that you actually have something to go by.

      I was planning on giving telekinesis a month and seeing where I am then.

      Or maybe they're all doing it for the same reason you're doing it.

      Well if no one tries no one is gonna succeed. Good luck to you buddy, Practice is everything.

      But I doubt A lifetime of believing that Telekinesis is impossible will be changed in a month, you'll probably have to practice much longer. I've thought about it before, and most likely the first thing you will be able to manipulate Telekinetically is water, because of how much of us is made up by it.

      Actually, it works, and learnable. I tried to learn it, but stopped, and started again a few days ago. It's possible, but real hard, you need to focus to it really, but you can surely read it at websites how to do it. It is said that after doing it for a year, with every day 10-15 minutes you'll be able to move a pen... Well, I recommend starting with reak small things like an airsoft bullet, that's small enough and round. It's all about patience, I'm doing it in school on some lessons that doesn't count.

      If you've actually moved a pen resting on a solid surface with no exposure to air currents, I suggest you write to an educational establishment, demonstrate your powers in a controlled environment, and become world famous. Failing that, at least upload a video to YouTube.

      My friend that told me about telekinesis said he has moved a pen. I am going to try meditating along with trying telekinesis every night as my routine.

      I recommend simply asking your friend to demonstrate his powers.

      A basic rigorous test would involve him trying to move an object which he can't influence physically (so he would have to stay still, and not be able to blow it). You tell him to move it in a certain direction during a certain time period (and not at any other time). If the pen does move, and in a large majority of the time it's in the direction you told him and at the time you told him, you have positive evidence. If he can't manage this, he's talking bollocks.

      Honestly, challenge him. I would. It'd be fun either way it turns out.

      I found a man on YouTube named Darryl Sloan. If you're skeptical,which many of you are, and by all means should be,watch his "Telekinesis: a two year investigation" playlist. He performs telekinesis in a very controlled, experimental way. He also addresses telekinesis in a candid and honest way from a simple point of view, making no attempt to explain it. Please watch it; it might change your mind.

      This is as legitimate as it gets.

      Maybe. He's still a beginner, meaning that he probably can't replicate the same results every time. Plus, I would make it more difficult for him just by being there.

      Give us a video to watch instead of sending us on a wild goose chase.

      You may get somewhere with a little commitment and perseverance. Try not to get too frustrated, though. It tends to stifle your qi.

      Also, Darryl Sloan is not going to convince any of these skeptics that telekinesis is real, just so you know.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      And it'd take so little to convince us.

      No it wouldn't. Darryl Sloan can't even convince me. It's simply too easy to manipulate a youtube video that hasn't had to undergo any independent testing.

      If you want to find out if telekinesis is possible, and you don't feel like learning it yourself, you'll have to find someone who claims they can move qi, set up a pinwheel and watch them rotate it. But you won't because like it's been said on this thread already, you'd rather just write it off and not bother to investigate. Because you're not actually a skeptic at all. You're a sophist.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      No, I won't because I have a life. Maybe if you're unemployed or something, it'd make sense in your dream world that somebody could do something so likely to be futile as personally visiting every single person on the internet making the same clichéd claims which have been proven to be either scams or delusions every time somebody making them has been asked to demonstrate them in a controlled environment.

      If somebody could really do this, it'd be easy for them to validate their claims to the public and to a reputable body. The burden of proof is on them, not me.
