What is the purpose of the ParaWiki?

The purpose of this Wiki is to provide a combination encyclopedia and grimoire for the paranormal, metaphysical, occult, and parapsychological communities. We feel that the scope of this Wiki will serve the communities more effectively than a traditional encyclopedia, and provide an invaluable resource for all.

We currently have 227 articles and 1 active editor(s).


The Paranormal and Metaphysical Wiki needs your help! We are currently low on editors and we welcome anyone who has any knowledge about the subject of an article to edit it and contribute to the growth of that article.

If I need help on the ParaWiki who can I contact?

If you need help with editing you can visit Help:Editing as it will explain the basics. If you need a page or photo deleted you can contact an Administrator.


Teleportation is the movement of people or objects from one location to another without passing any of the locations between. Teleportation is related to telekinesis, though manifesting in a different way.

Although the word teleportation is of twentieth-century origin (it was coined by Charles Fort in 1931), the concept is far older, appearing in Hebrew and Islamic sources.

Teleportation has been recorded in cases of physical mediumship, most notably in the notorious transportation of Mrs Guppy across London. It is also associated with many poltergeist cases.

Explanations range from the purely miraculous to the quasi-scientific, with references to quantum mechanics sometimes being offered to explain non-quantum teleportation.
