It the beginning there was TTK,that was based on a aura surrounding supermans body,and given to superboy to mimic supermans physical powers of strength,flight,and invulnerability.
the current TTK sounds like this-
Your telekinetic abilities are such that you can feel the objects you manipulate.When you are manipulating a creature or object with*telekinesis, you may activate this power. If you do, you are able to feel objects you manipulate with that instance of*telekinesis.While this effect is active, you can sense texture, weight, temperature, and similar sensations from objects you manipulate. The impressions you receive are three-dimensional; you feel all sides of an object simultaneously. You can feel the interior of objects with an opening (such as a lock). Small objects inside a large, open container (such as a chest) can all be felt individually and simultaneously.The surface sensitivity of your skin or the density of sensory neurons does not limit you when you use this power. This gives you an incredible degree of sensitivity. You can feel individual particles of dust, microscopic variations in skin texture, and other tiny details. It is not necessary to exert pressure on an object to provide tactile sensations.
All star superman when lex gets supermans powers and see the world the way he does for the first time ,and says that he sees the entire electromagnetic sprectrum,and can see individual.atoms,and the main part of him.saying everything is connected,and if thays true,why cant the definition of "tactile" TK mean more.like it means he is connected to everything,and his TTK can perceive and manipulate it all,even.without making a solid connection,because even the air around us is made up.of.atoms he can see.
So could.this be how.he grows.in power?
