From DC Database

Clairvoyance (from 17th century French Clair meaning "clear" and voyant meaning "seeing") is a supposed form of extra-sensory perception claiming the transference of information about an object, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses. A person said to have the ability of clairvoyance is referred to as a clairvoyant.

Within parapsychology, clairvoyance is used exclusively to refer to the transfer of information that is both contemporary to, and hidden from, the clairvoyant. It is differentiated from telepathy in that the information is said to be gained directly from an external physical source, rather than being transferred from the mind of one individual to another.

It is closely related to Psychometry and Precognition.

A DHARMA parapsychological experiment, as shown in the Swan Orientation Film

Parapsychology is one of the fields studied by the DHARMA Initiative (as stated in the Swan Orientation Film).

Parapsychology is the study of the evidence of mental awareness or influence of external objects without interaction from known physical means. Most objects of study fall within the realm of "mind-to-mind" influence (such as extra-sensory perception, folie a deux and telepathy), "mind-to-environment" influence (such as psychokinesis and remote viewing) and "environment-to-mind" (such as hauntings and near death experiences). Collectively, these abilities are often referred to as "psionics".

The scientific validity of parapsychology research is a matter of frequent dispute and criticism, and is generally referred to as a pseudoscience, refuted by numerous rigorous scientific studies (unlike psychology, which is a recognized field of conventional science).

Astral Projection

The psychic ability to project oneself outside of the bounds of one's physical body.

  • Images of Walt appeared in places where he was not physically, such as visions that Shannon had in the jungle, dripping wet (when he was then in the captivity of the Others). Bea Klugh later interrogated Michael and asked him "Did Walt ever appear in a place he wasn't supposed to be? You say he was half way around the world -- did you see him?"

Clairaudience or E.S.P.

Extra-sensory perception in which one has the ability to acquire auditory information by means currently unknown to science.

Clairvoyance, Remote Viewing, E.S.P., Telepathy

Extra-sensory perception in which one can visually perceive geographically or temporally distant objects, people or events through psychic energy alone.

Faith Healing

A form of 'alternative medicine' in which spiritual means are used to treat disease, in extreme instances, accompanied by the refusal of modern medical treatment.

Near-Death Experience

An experience reported by a person who was clinically dead and revived (usually by medical means).

  • After the plane crash, Rose was saved from cardiac arrest by Jack, and had an experience that made her certain that Bernard is still alive.
  • Charlotte Malkin tells Eko that she saw his deceased brother Yemi when she was "between places".

Telekinesis or Psychokinesis

The influence of mind upon matter, as the use of mental 'power' to move or distort an object.

  • The Others' book club reads Carrie, by Stephen King, which is about a teenager with psychokinetic abilities.
  • In "Special", Walt felt ignored by his mother and stepfather while trying to tell them about an exotic bird he was reading about at the time, and shortly thereafter, a bird of that species flew directly into a nearby window. Walt also has an uncanny ability to affect the roll of his dice in playing backgammon with Hurley, and he perfectly guides the knife to its target when practicing with Locke, simply by envisioning it hitting the target. A polar bear appears after Walt reads Hurley's comic book, which features a polar bear.
  • The Monster is able to transform into the shape of someone close to or familiar to a person, such as Eko's brother Yemi.

From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future

Clairvoyance is the general talent which allows a person to sense events at some location displaced from the viewer.

Clairvoyant abilities allow eavesdropping as well as spying and detection-free exploration of situations. While telepathic life detection will determine the presence of living minds in a closed room; for example, using Sense will determine if a room is occupied or empty. Individuals undergoing eavesdropping through clairvoyance may sense they are being watched.

A psionic may specify the exact location at which they are applying their ability if it is out of physical sight by direction, provided they has some knowledge of the location by experience or description. This guidance assists them in performing their activity in the most efficient manner.

Contents

Sense

The basic ability to sense things at some point in the distance. The psionic become aware of the most rudimentary characteristics of a location when applying this ability.

Clairvoyance

This specific ability allows actual viewing (but not hearing) of a situation at some displaced point.

Clairaudlence

This ability is identical to clairvoyance with the exception that it allows hearing instead of seeing.

Combined Clairvoyance and Clalraudience

A person is capable of both seeing and hearing a specific situation by using this ability.
