Pyrokinesis is defined as the psychokinetic ability to influence propelling charged particles to high 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 accelerators whereby increasing the temperature of systems, or objects, that are not in thermodynamic equilibrium.
Experients of pyrokinetic phenomena under stress are prone to spontaneous heating and spontaneous combustion. The most common form of combustion reported amongst experients is that of fires designated Class A.
These fires occur when an organic solid, such as wood, cloth, rubber or some plastics become heated to their flash point and ignite. At this point, the solid undergoes combustion.
Fortunately, these types of fires are easy to fight and contain – by removing the heat, oxygen, or fuel, or by suppressing the underlying chemical reaction. Experients with mild to high stressors should be encouraged to keep a fire extinguisher readily accessible in their home and office.
