You ask, for the first time, what channel your spectator has been thinking of, and proceed to explain how your new skill also enables you to change channels using only the power of your mind. As you concentrate on the TV, explaining that you are focusing your mental energy on it, you request that it be turned on for the first time since being unplugged. When the television powers up, it is, remarkably, tuned to the exact channel that the spectator had been thinking of, and, the scene displayed, is exactly as you had described! Teleshock requires no set fact it requires nothing, as Telekinesis is totally impromptu. Teleshock does not use a duplicate remote control. Teleshock is totally self-working.
