Why can’t I move shit with my mind?

On what grounds does one draw the line between quantum physics/mechanics and pseudoscientific claims about the powers of consciousness? I’m naturally skeptical of claims like the following that purport to be supported by quantum physics/mechanics:

– Telekinesis.
– Telepathy.
– Healing yourself with your mind, etc.

I don’t know enough about quantum physics to understand where the reasoning goes south, though. When I read skeptical articles, they usually dismiss the claims by saying “they misunderstand the science,” but they don’t go into detail. That’s what I’m looking for.

If it’s helpful, these sort of things tend to take the idea that your consciousness acts on everything it observes and extrapolates from there.

Does it have something to do with the idea of a “conscious observer” not necessarily meaning “a human being with a conscious,” depending on your interpretation of quantum mechanics? Is it conflating superposition with observer effect? Something else?

Are these claims actually possible in some “legitimate” interpretations but we’re doubtful those interpretations are true? Or are all the claims based on misunderstanding?

I feel like I have a very vague grasp of these concepts, and whenever I try to pinpoint the flaw in reasoning my mind can’t process it.
