I've been thinking lately about energy manipulation. I find myself wondering if I believe it's acheivable, and more importantly to my scientist brain, testable as a psionic skill. Other skills such as TK or telepathy seem easy to test. With TK, if you rule out possibilities of current scientific explanations then you are left with only the likelyhood that an object is moved with thought and as to TP verification of information is presumably easy...apart from a few odd looks perhaps ;D
However, there seems to be lots of scepticism surrounding psi energy, for instance sceptics would argue that psi balls are merely a nervous system response to visualisation and this explains what is felt. I suppose what I'm really asking is, what proof do you feel there is for psi energy? I ask this not as a raging non believer, but as a person wishing for some form of truth on the matter.
Furthermore, on an unrelated but still relevant note, are physicists used in parapsychological studies. If not, how come? Surely if you wished to study EM and Macro Pk, they'd be best at ruling out possibilites.
