"A psychic is a person who has the abilities of extra-sensory perception, such as clairvoyance, psychometry, premonition and precognition, or other paranormal abilities such as psychokinesis. The study of such paranormal abilities is called parapsychology. The issue of whether or not psychic abilities actually exist is still controversial within science; however, recent polls do show a high instance of support amongst scientists and academics." Wikepedia
"This widely used word, which can be an adjective or a noun, derives from the Greek psyche, meaning 'mind' or 'soul'. As an adjective, psychic is often used synonymously with paranormal. Any event that appears to challenge conventional assumptions regarding the limits of possibility is designated a psychic phenomenon. Paranormal. Literally, "beside the normal," a paranormal event is one that violates the boundaries of space and time, or cause and effect, as they are normally understood. ...' hyponoesis.org
