Psionics is the SF imaginary science of paranormal mental powers (E.S.P. and P.K.). Unlike magic and supernatural powers, psionics follows a scientific perspective, so a mind-reading spell and psionic telepathy evoke different ambiences. The term 'psionics' derives from the term 'electronics' : 'electronics' is the study and control of the messenger particles of electricity, and psionics is the study and control of the messenger particles of paranormal mental powers.

The groupings of psionic powers as listed by dialogue are too specific. I prefer the one presented in the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons psionics handbook;

There was also another type, metapsionics, the psionic manipulation of psionics itself. However, this can probably be merged with the other powers. Also, since clairvoyance involves senses other than sight, and things other than distant locations, a better name might be telesentience(something like 'distance perception').
