Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. 

Spoon bending was first made popular in the 1970s after a host of TV performances from Israeli born Uri Gellar and has go on to become a well established part of our culture, almost everyone has seen or heard about Spoon bending but few people actually know what its all about.

The phenomenon of spoon bending exploded across the United States and so called 'PK parties' popped up all over the country from New York to California. At these events people of all ages would come together and were guided through rituals and chants and would attempt to use 'psychokinesis' or 'PK' to bend spoons using their minds.

Personally I prefer the term 'Telekinesis' which dates back to 1890 and was coined by Russian psychical researcher Alexander N. Aksakof and I will be using that from now on. The word Telekinesis comes from the Greek τηλε, tele meaning "distant" and κίνησις, "kinesis", meaning motion, movement; literally "distant-movement" and describes the ability to interact with the physical world with just your mind. There has been numerous studies into Telekinesis and yet again we find ourselves back at J.B Rhine, who was the first person to conduct scientific studies into telekinesis. The experiments including attempt to influence the rolls of dice I'm sure we've all had the experience of playing a board game and trying to make the dice stop on a six or “lucky seven”! The results showed a statistical variation from probability, but perhaps the most impressive evidence for TK is anecdotal.
