At this moment in the Internet's history I am one of many, I would suspect, who often prefers to receive the world on demand, to leave touch with my immediate surroundings in order to surf the information of my choosing. This is a very particular and unique kind of information acquisition, it's accelerated and intentional. I've asked several friends in the cognitive sciences what to call this variety of mental processing, it's not intellectual perse, not rational necessarily, cerebral?

Psychokinesis (from the Greek ψυχή, "psyche", meaning mind, soul, spirit, heart, or breath ; and κίνησις, "kinesis", meaning motion, movement ; literally "mind-movement"), [ 1 ] [ 2 ] also referred to as telekinesis [ 3 ] ( Greek τῆλε + κίνησις , literally "distant-movement") with respect to strictly describing mental movement or motion of solid matter, abbreviated as PK and TK respectively, is a term coined by publisher Henry Holt [ 4 ] to refer to the direct influence of mind on a physical system that cannot be entirely accounted for by the mediation of any known physical energy .

When the lift stopped, on floor 44, he saw scenes of panic, but the structural engineer who worked for the New York Port Authority continued to his own office on the 64th floor. His wife Louise, then seven months' pregnant told how her husband telephoned her, and asked her to switch on the television to find out what was going on. She saw that the plane had hit his building, which was alight. Then Mr Buzzelli and colleagues clustered around a television to see a second plane hit the neighbouring tower.
