What is Psionics?Edit
"Psionics refers to the practice, study, or psychic ability of using the mind to induce paranormal phenomena. Examples of this includes empathy, telepathy, telekinesis, pyrokinesis, electrokinesis and other workings of the outside world through the psyche." -definition taken from Wikipedia.
The nature of Psionics is controversial. By some it is seen as a magickal practice, by others as something entirely not related to magick.
- From an arcane(ish) view-point, Psionics is a form of direct magick. Basically, a way of practicing magick without the usage of external tools. There are more forms of direct magick, but Psionics differs in the way it works, and it shall be discussed a bit later. Sometimes Psionics is (rarely) referred to as the Empty-Hand path.
- From the other point of view, Psionics is the power of the mind. The ones who stand with this perspective either don't believe in magick or simply considers magick as being something otherworldy which doesn't involve inner mental capability (later to be approved or disapproved by certain paradigms).
Psionics refers to the usage of a subtle energy called 'psi'. Psi is one of three main types of energies (Chi, Psi and Ki, aside from personal energies) that makes up most of what Psionics is consisted of. Psi being the main form of energy is due to the fact that Psi is used in practically every Psionic ability (maybe minus the ESP-Type abilties), and can be drawn to your Chakras when meditating or focusing on specific practices or ability trainings.
