Psionics are a group of psychic abilities which parapsychologists claim can use the mind to induce paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, telekinesis, pyrokinesis and others. Alleged practitioners of psionics are called psychics, and sometimes refer to themselves as psions. Parapsychology, a pseudoscience begun around 1889, aims to study psionic and other supernatural claims. A large industry exists whereby psychics provide advice and counsel to clients.

Examples of Psionic Abilities on the MUSH:

  • Animal Control - The ability to control animals, either a specific type, or all.
  • Astral projection or mental projection - An out-of-body experience in which an "astral body" becomes separate from the physical body
  • Clairvoyance or second sight - Perception outside the known human senses.
  • Precognition, premonition and precognitive dreams - Perception of events before they happen.
  • Psychokinesis or telekinesis - The ability to manipulate objects by the power of thought (This includes opening Locks, or disarming Doomsday Devices)
  • Pyrokinesis - Manipulation of fire.
  • Telepathy - Transfer of thoughts or emotions in either direction.

The only KNOWN non-Visitor with Psionic Abilities is Elizabeth Maxwell, who is a Hybrid. There have been reports of others with the abilities, of course, but the reports have not been confirmed, and usually the reports, that are creditable, come as a result of either Elizabeth's presence, or due to a Visitor's presence.
