A psychic is a person who possesses the unusual abilities to perceive and gather information about distant targets. The distant targets may be objects, events, situations, or locations that are not visible. These distant objects are hidden from the five basic normal senses of a human being and only the ESP powers of a person can make them perceivable.
The psychics have always existed in fiction and they have often been assigned important roles. They have become important characters and catalysts that make the story move ahead. Some of the well-known and contemporary psychics include Miss Cleo, John Edward, Danielle Egnew, and Sylvia Browne.
The critics' community has never believed in the existence of psychic abilities. The critics have always refuted the claims made by believers of psychic abilities and paranormal powers. Many of the critics have attributed psychic abilities and paranormal powers to intentional trickery and self-delusion also.
A study conducted about psychic abilities came out with a report that said that there is no 'scientific justification from research conducted over a period of 130 years for the existence of parapsychological phenomena.'
The word psychic derives its origin from the Greek word 'psychikos' which means 'mental' or 'of the mind.' The word was later introduced to the English language also. It was in 1870s that Edward William Cox used it for the first time in English.
There have been numerous claims about the existence of psychic abilities. Some people have shown their disbelief by citing lack of documentary evidences as the reason for their faith while there are others who have shown their belied in the existence of paranormal powers, irrespective of the fact there are no recorded proofs. For them, it is the spiritual side of a human being.
The U.S. federal government has funded the research for remote viewing for its application to the intelligence community. The research conducted established the presence of psychic abilities but scientists in other fields refused to accept its presence, saying that the proofs were not enough for acceptance.
Today, there are many professions that have come up as a result of psychic abilities such as remote viewing and clairvoyance. The remote viewers are people who have the abilities to gather information about objects, events, situations, and locations located distantly in time and space. The objects that the remote viewers perceive information about can be located in next room, or they can be a part of some other age and they may be located in some other country.
Clairvoyance has also been associated with remote viewing many a times but it is much different from it, though it also uses ESP powers to gather information.
