Psi can be loosely defined as the ability of an organism to interact with its environment, or other entities within the environment, beyond what is known about the defined boundaries of that organism. The inability to empirically observe how these interactions happen, outside of the initially observed effect, has resulted in modeling various theories about psi within the context of it being an information system of sorts. That being said, para psychologically typically approaches psi from the perspective that it is a function which allows for an exchange of information between the organism and its environment; however, information is extrinsic to the thing that it is encoded upon, thus, it can not exist separately from the thing that it is encoded upon. While hypostatisation (making concrete an abstract thing through reification) is useful for conceptual and ontological models (will be discussed later on in the article), it is a reification fallacy to treat an unreal thing, that is nothing more than a conceptual abstraction, as a real thing without giving it any substance, thus, information, within the context of parapsychology, is a systematic mapping of a group of entities that is unobservable at the moment. Information can be considered to be an abstract and polymorphic noun that has many contexts in which it can be used.
Due to the abstract nature of psi, as it impinges upon the organism outside of the normal modes of sensory encroaching on sensory organs, information, within the mind of the person manifests as various symbolic, or even literal, associations that are tacit in nature and non semantic. Semantic information is qualitative in nature which connects the dots in regards to meaning. Extrasensory information manifest as various modes of anomalous cognition which present patterns of information in various associations in which meaning has to be extracted via positive objective feedback. In other words, meaning is not transferred, initially, via psi; however, it can be learned via proving various postulations about the meaning of the information with the scope of the accuracy of what it actually means and whether or not the information was mediated via psi via objective feedback thereby creating a semantic library of sorts.
In addition to obtaining information about the environment, or other entities within the environment, via psi, an organism has the ability to initiate and transfer information which manipulates the physical environment in the form of psychokinesis. As was stated, before, due to the inability to observe the underlying mechanisms, parapsychology typically models such interactions within the context of informational models and theories based upon experimental evidence. That being said, one can define two directions of transference between the organism; two and fro, but an issue that often arises is conscious utilization of these unknown correlations between an entity and these interactions.
As was said,...
