Autokinesis is the psychical influence of energy including kinetic, potential, thermal, gravitational, sound, light, electrical, and electromagnetic radiation, etc. Experients of autokinesis can increase, decrease, and convert different types of energies. (Kelly, 2013)

Features of Autokinesis

Kinetic Feature

The kinetic energy of an object is the energy of which it possesses due to its motion. It is briefly defined, as the work required accelerating a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity (the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object). Once an object has gained this energy during its acceleration, the object will maintain this kinetic energy until its speed changes. The same amount of work is done by the object in decelerating from its current speed to a state of rest. For example, the experient can put an object into motion, or affect the speed of an object in motion towards or away from the experient by increasing or decreasing its speed. (Kelly, 2013)

Potential Feature

Potential energy is the energy stored in an object due to its position in a force field or due its configuration. Potential energy exists when a force acts upon an object that is inclined to restore it to a lower energy configuration (i.e. restoring force). For example, if an experient lifts an object, the force of gravity will act to bring it back down, back to its original position. In this case, experients can increase or decrease the speed of the object traveling downwards. (Kelly, 2013)

Levitational Feature

Experients also appear to reverse the effect, resulting in a levitational feature. Levitation in this case involves the psychical influence of suspending an object against the force of gravity in a stable position void of solid, physical contact. Experients typically report (1) levitating small objects, (2) making themselves (the experient) “lighter,” whereby reducing gravitational energy, and (3) levitating his or her own body during deep meditation or during sleep. (Kelly, 2013)

Thermal Feature

Experients also report the influence of thermal energy (the total energy in an object that results in the objects temperature). For example, experients report the ability to psychically propel charged particles to high speeds, or decelerate charged particles to low speeds, typically electrons because of their light weight. These temperature changes can result in object phase changes via the physical processes of heating (e.g. melting/fusion or boiling, or result in smoldering or flaming combustion), or cooling (e.g. condensation or result in solidification via freezing). (Kelly, 2013)

Photic Feature

Lastly, these experients report the psychical influence of visible light (i.e. the portion of electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye such as white light and color), and invisible light (the portion of electromagnetic radiation that is not visible to the human eye including the ultraviolet and the infrared range). For example, experients report the ability to influence the electromagnetic spectrum including visible light and part of the near-infrared range. In addition, they report the ability to create (via photoelectric effect) and modify remote photic (light) sources and the influence of the human body’s natural ultra-weak biophoton emissions, which can be utilized in light-based therapeutic (healing) techniques. Influence in regard to electromagnetism and electromagnetic fields have also been reported involving the affected behavior and motion of electrically charged particles (objects) vicinal to electromagnetic fields under experient influence.
