A Scientific-Psychic Approach to Supernatural or Psychic Abilities
Scientific vs Psychic
Psychic. What do we mean with it? Knowing things beyond our five senses? Or having powers really not belonging to the real world? Well, in my opinion each one of us can or does have these abilities obviously in different ways and at various levels. We all have what we call Psychic Abilities. Ans a Scientific-Psychic approach is the right one to investigate it further.
Science can't explain everything but we must use reason and common sense when talking about the Supernatural or Psychic world to avoid being scammed.
What do we mean by Psychic?
Does it mean being able to see through closed doors, books, knowing things before they happens, moving things with mind's powers....?
Well, I guess each one of us has his own definition of what being Psychic means. The most common one is that is someone able to know or do things that common people cannot. Usually with his mind. So if someone tells you he has Psychic Abilities he should be able to read your id card without looking inside your wallet. Or if he says he's able to bend spoons with his mind he should be able to do it without touching the spoon. And so on. Otherwise there is the risk that instead of being a psychic he's a illusionist, which is another thing. This is a Scientific-Psychic approach for me, demonstrating beyond doubt every assertion made.
Demonstration of Psychic Abilities.
Whatever the definition of your choice things must be demonstrated. And possibly without too many excuses if things don't work. If someone states to be able to read a closed book then ask to see it with a book of your choice that he has never read. If he says he's able to move things with his mind then ask for a demonstration, here and now. And if you really want to see if someone is a Psychic keep your mouth shut and your body immobile so as not to give signals useful to be interpreted.
Being skeptic about these kind of things is usually the best policy. If someone really has Psychic Abilities he should have them even if you think he doesn't. I'm always skeptic about things that work only in particular conditions, with the right light, at the right moment of the day, with the right atmosphere and with all the planets in the right position, so to speak.
Remember though that I'm not trying to say that Psychic Abilities do not exist. I have had some Dejà vù in my life, still have them sometimes and I haven't yet found a better explanation than the one that they are things dreamed before.
What is a Psychic then?
My definition is someone who has a greater or different sensibility than the "average" human being and who is able to see or perceive things in a different way. Receives different signals than the average human being.
We define the world by our senses, but our senses do not see the whole world.
As an example we see things through the refraction of light on them, but we can see only a limited amount of light frequencies. Animals have a different vision span and so they probably see many more things than human being. I've always wondered what a fly sees with all his eyes. Or those animals who are able to see infrared emissions.
The fact that we don't see things does means that they do not exist? Obviously not. If I shut the light and I can't see anything in my house it doesn't mean that everything doesn't exists. A blind man can see nothing but this doesn't mean that the world doesn't exists. Of course he uses other senses. But again bats hear differently from us, as much as dolphins and so on.
Scientific-Psychic approaches take into account both factors of the equation, the real world and the untouchable, supernatural, Psychic world.
I'm not able to see or touch radio waves, nevertheless I'm able to use my cell phone.
If while I'm walking someone drops a pot at me I'll probably be hit, if instead it is dropped on a person who just slightly has a more sensitive ear than me he would probably be able to jump aside and avoid being hit. We would think he has Psychic Abilities because he "felt" the pot dropping without "hearing"it.
What I'm trying to say is that with all our senses even if working together we perceive only a small fraction of what we call reality. And that's probably why I can't understand what my cat is looking at when she looks at the little space between the refrigerator and the wall. I see nothing.
I think that Psychic Abilities do exists and are possessed by those having a different sensibility or enhanced senses than the average human being and they are able to see or understand things differently. It all has to do with our inner abilities which we possess at an unconscious level. But the Scientific-Psychic approach must be used at all times and every assertion must be tested and/or demonstrated.
So we can all have unknown Psychic Abilities. Only that the vast majority, me too, do not know how to use them.You can find other interesting informations on this hub from a friend of mine on The Science of Esp.

Something scientific-psychic seems an oxymoron but chance doesn't explain everything nor does a New Age like approach. What do you think?
