We may want to make an exception for the No Real Life Examples rule. This is a paper written in 1982 by the Dean of Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science.

I'm not going to claim this proves psychics are real, but it might make a good deconstruction example.

Why no Real Life examples? Science actually considers all of this things possible, at least theoretically. Ever heard of Uri Geller? He used stage magic mixed with this, but many of his deeds considered true.

Most likely because of how controversial the topic is. I mean, I believe in the existence of some psychic phenomena, but This wiki might have plenty of people who consider all psychic powers imaginary.

No, science does not consider all those things possible. Most of them would violate basic physical laws.

As for Uri Geller, he's a plain stage magician, with his tricks debunked by James Randi and others.

Psionics is linked to by some other page, but not actually created. It should probably be added as an alt title for this.
