Psychic terms and occurrences on Stranger Things

Psychic terms and occurrences in Stranger Things - On Netflix this weekend. Here are some notes from Renee's Facebook Live.

Psychokinesis is what they are trying to get Eleven to do when they are experimenting on her. It is the ability to be able to influence items that you don’t physically touch. 

When Winona Rider’s character (Joyce Byers) is trying to figure out how to get Will (her son) back, the writing on the wall is an example of psychokinesis. The fun and horror movie aspect of this is that Will is taken to an alternate dimension - the Upside down. 


Telepathy is the ability to connect with another living being at the most basic level of energy.  It seems to be present in every relationship we have with people, animals, and other living creatures.  Precognition is the ability to predict an event before it actually takes place.

Think about it.  Telepathy is a basis for communication.  Have you ever finished a sentence for someone?  Pure telepathy!  Do you instintively recognize friend or foe - even before you know that person?  Perhaps you are able to pick up the negative or positive thoughts emanating from that person.
