Kinesis is the control over something with your mind . For example , telekinesis is the ability to manipulate physical objects to move without touching them at all . There are various kinds if kinesis , as they have control over different subjects . Pyrokinesis is the control of fire while cytokinesis is the control of ice .
I for one , do not like to use such terms to describe kinesis . I prefer to say kinesis with matter , kinessis with fire . Etc
Elements in Magick ( dont confuse that with your periodic table , Lol ) , refers to the cornerstones of creation .
Some magicians , witches and wiccans believe that there are five main elements , fire , water , air , earth and Spirit . There are many idealogys on which elements added . I know a few who add in darkness , light and metal . I suggest you don't add to many as circle casting can take quite a while when you decide to welcome and honor them into your circle .
In elemental magick , they usually work with fire , water , air and earth in particular .
