    Noetic experiences include psychic phenomena, known generically as "psi" experiences. Psi denotes anomalous processes of information or energy transfer, processes that are currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms. They are generally labeled extrasensory perception (ESP) -- the acquisition of information without using the known senses -- and psychokinesis (PK), the ability to influence physical objects or events without the intervention of any known physical force. Common labels for the various ways that ESP manifests are telepathy (mind-to-mind), clairvoyance (perceiving events or objects that are hidden, shielded, or at a distance) and precognition (perceiving the future).
