That's what I just did. In terms of pure damage and number of targets hit Lightning is almost identical to the Barret M82, Fireball is identical to a Petrol Bomb, and Bullet is identical to the Glock 9mm. My point is that each of those spells all have a niche. 3 TK spells that are all functionally identical except for Strength and Speed don't.
IMO the better divide would be:
Psionic Bullet - Just what it says. Psionics needs another no strings attack power anyway. Give it a fairly low axiom because it's raw, brute force. If necessary don't allow it to make called shots.
Levitate - Makes a horizontal platform of pure force that 1 person can stand on while you lift it up. Limit its speed to 4 or something else low, and have it so people can step on or off of it at will so it's useless as an attack spell.
Telekinesis - Bump it up to 24 so Pan Pacifica psycics have something that Core Earth doesn't besides Mend. Remove the height restriction but limit its pace to 1/2 the power's strength. If falling damage is still terrifying then hard code it so that you can't lift someone who's struggling.
Now you have 3 takes on telekinesis with with 3 different limitations but they are all unique.
