no•et•ic: From the Greek noēsis / noētikos, meaning inner wisdom, direct knowing, or subjective understanding
The theory of noetics centers around the idea that the human mind is capable of affecting work or events or even doing work in the physical world. It is suggested that thought and spirit are not, in fact, imaginary, but are Bose or photon based. meaning essentially that the mind can be quantified by formulae which describe quantum materials such as light. This is a radical conclusion, as many people consider thoughts to be weightless. Noetic theory claims that just as gravity affects all matter, thoughts do as well, although to a lesser degree. Psychokinesis, more often called telekinesis, is concerned with the direct influence of mind on matter.
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS):
Explores the frontiers of consciousness
Builds bridges between science and spirit
Researches subtle energies and the powers of healing
Inquires into the science of love, forgiveness, and gratitude
Studies the effects of conscious and compassionate intention
Seeks to understand the basis of prevailing worldviews
Practices freedom of thought and freedom of spirit

He knew that the beautiful blue world to which he was returning is part of a living system, harmonious and whole—and that we all participate, as he expressed it later, "in a universe of consciousness
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."
