Or not? In recent years, some quite wacky ideas have entered the scientific mainstream. One is quantum superposition, the idea that a particle takes multiple states before collapsing into one. Now, I'm not a physicist, but my understanding is that one interpreation, called 'the Copenhagen interpretation' postulates that observation can cause the collapse of superposition.
Now, this is disputed, but let's say observation can alter the outcome of a particle's position. What's to say that if the observation was timed and linked with consciousness on some level, it would be impossible to deliberately manipulate the quantum state at will with your mind?
Would it then be possible to move things with your mind or even send information to other people's minds? Obviously this is far beyond science and is in the realm of the metaphysical. But what do you guys think?

Any telepathy claim that has been tested by scientists has failed so it's unlikely.
