Heat Conduction vs. Radiation
Cryokinesis is the psychical influence involving the deceleration of charged particles to low speeds, typically electrons because of their light weight, via an experients own electrical fields or through the remote influence of similar fields.
Experients act as low energy particle decelerators whereby decreasing the temperature of systems, or objects, that are not in thermodynamic equilibrium.
Reported limitations pertaining to psychokinetic-based influence in regards to heat flow include heat conduction verses heat radiation. In cryokinetic heat transfer, conduction (heat conduction) is the transfer of thermal energy between the experient and a system or object.
In the case of cold compression therapy, this transfer would be between the experient and the client. This transfer is due to a temperature gradient, which directs the flow of heat from regions of higher temperatures to regions of lower temperatures.
While experients are decelerating particles via their natural electrical fields, the heat from the client is spontaneously directed from the client to the experient.
Unlike radiation, this flow is possible via the direct touch between the experient and the client. Radiation on the other hand, does not require direct touch, but rather localization to a substance or system.
