- "What else can you do besides telekinesis?"
- —Elizabeth Weir
Psychokinesis, also known as telekinesis, is the ability to move object one can or cannot see with the power of their mind. Beings near ascension are able to demonstrate psychokinesis. Cassandra Fraiser and Wodan were given psycokinetic abilities by Nirrti in an attempt to create a Hok'tar (advanced human) host; Cassandra through a retro-virus, and Wodan through a DNA resequencer. Priors have demonstrated the ability to use psychokinesis, as have de-ascended beings such as Merlin, and Daniel Jackson after downloading Merlin's memories. Rodney McKay also gained telekinesis when exposed to a Ancient Device that was designed to accelerate a human's natural evolution.

Psychokinetics are even able to affect complex machinery whose inner workings are foreign to those using it, including energy weapons as used by the Wraith, and Particle magnums. (ATL: "Tao of Rodney") (SG1: "Prototype")
