DEFORMATION OF NITINOL WIRE: A CONFIRMATORY EXPERIMENT
This feature is just one ludicrous example showing to what extent some scientists, magicans and writers indulged in, to explain how Uri Geller demonstrates his telepathic abilities.
Incidentally, "New Scientist" is known to be a very serious scientific magazine.
These consciousness results of the Greek TV viewers on October 2nd 2004, are quite amazing:
Professor Victor Weisskopf physicist who studied under Niels Bohrr worked on the A bomb and over saw the development of European atom smashers.
"I was shocked and amazed how Mr Geller bent my office key at MIT while I was holding it. The sturdy key kept bending in my hand; I can not explain this phenomenon I can only assume that it could relate could relate to quantum chromo dynamics".
From George Edward Pake, appointed to the President of the United States Science Advisory Committee and the inspirational creator and Sounding Research Director of the Xerox Corporation, Palo Alto Research Centre Parc and member of the American Physical Society "I met Mr Geller while he was being studied at SRI during our conversation he demonstrated his mind reading techniques and plucked out of my mind
an image I was thinking of, it was very impressive"
Jack Sarfatti - PhD, Physicist "My personal judgement as a PhD physicist is that Geller demonstrated genuine psychoenergetic ability at Birkbeck which is beyond the doubt of any reasonable man, under relatively well-controlled and repeated experimental conditions. ".
have spent my life in neuropsychiatry and have been
interestedin strange mental states and odd phenomena
for a number ofyears. I first met Uri three years
ago and was able to watch him bend a spoon on a colleagues's
outstretched hand. I tooka spoon from the table. Uri
did not touch it, I put it on my colleagues's hand
and asked Uri to bend it. Uri ran his finger above
the spoon and stood back. Nothing happened. We expressed
some dissapointment, still watching the spoon. He
said, Wait and Watch. Slowly, as we watched, with
Uri standing well away, the spoon started to curl
in front of us, and within four minutes the tail of
the spoon had risen up like a scorpions sting.
I then took the spoon, the first time I had handled
it since I put it there, and sure enough, it remained
a normal spoon with a marked bend. "Dr.Peter

"After the Geller work, I was asked to brief
the director of the CIA, Ambassador George Bush (Later
to become President of the United States), on our
activities and the results. In later years during
the Brezhnev period, I met with several Russian scientists
who not only had documented results similar to ours,
but were actively using "psychic" techniques
against the U.S. and its allies."
Dr Edgar D. Mitchell
S.C.D. (Apollo 14 Astronaut and 6th man to
walk on the moon)
I can attest to the same type of incident, but in
a different venue. I was with Uri when he held a session
in the US Capitol. With few exceptions, only Congressional
members and their staff were there. Uri wanted to
talk about how the Soviets were exploiting Jews with
psychic ability. This was based on his interviews
with many people who had left the Soviet Union and
gone to Israel. The group asked him to bend something.
While he wanted to address the problem, he did agree
and ask for a spoon. One was finally found in a guard's
coffee cup. Uri bent the spoon with minimal contact.
He then laid it down on a chair about three feet in
front of me and went back to talking. As he talked,
the spoon continued to bend and fell on the floor.
I still have the spoon.

he does not have a bag of tricks. He bends spoons.

instances of this kind will probably accumulate, so
that there willbe no room for reasonable doubt that

we have gone some distance toward this point."

The most famous Anthropologist in the world Margaret Mead suggests Geller may bereal "psychic"
From a filmed interview at the Museum of Natural
History NewYork, February 18, 1974"...Then
there is another problem, that I think is very important
to realise, and that is that everywhere in the world
almost,where one has sensitives that are put in a
public position, that is, they may be diviners, they
may be seers, they maybe theatrical performers - but
whenever an individual with particular powers is put
into a conspicuous position, we have a tendency to
find trickery also. Now this does not mean that the
sensitive is only a trickster, but it does mean that
sensitives are very doubtful of their own powers,
of the reliability of their own powers.
instance, Geller will not perform if he feels hostility
from the audience. If he were a performer who was
being paid, he might feel that he needed a few appurtenances
(props) to make it work so this curious association
between various forms of magicianship with sensitive
behaviour occurs in many parts of the world. It doesn't
mean that the sensitive does not believe in his powers.
It does mean he doesn't trust them very thoroughly,
and he feels that certain conditions could disrupt

I tested Uri myself under laboratory-controlled conditions
and saw with my own eyes the bending of a key which
was not touched by Geller at any time. There was a
group of people present during the experiment who
all witnessed the key bending in eleven seconds to
an angle of thirty degrees. Afterwards we tested the
key in a scientific laboratory using devices such
as electron microscopes and X-rays and found that
there was no chemical, manual or mechanical forces
involved in the bending of the key."

about 90 degrees in 15 minutes while in my own possession

by my physicist colleagues, the phenomenon cannot
be induced by our present laboratory means. It cannot
be explained with our present knowledge."

setting up the conditions for me to bring together
the group of forty physicists to start and conduct

the nature of reality and the use of physical models
to explain the space-time attributes of consciousness
and remote connection models of Bell's Theorem. The
key is that psychokinesis and psi in general, related
powers of the mind, can be studied with the scientific
method and you have had a key influence on scientists

were conducted under rigorous laboratory conditions.
In these two experiments the thick steel rod I was
holding and observing carefully bent, and continued
to bend, in my own hand. One rod bent to 90 degrees
during a period of approximately six minutes while
I was holding it. The other steel rod bent after Uri
stroked it and continued bending on a glass table
without anyone touching it. The steel rods were provided
by myself. I consider the Geller effect to be a phenomenon

As an author, psychologist and scientist, I am keenly
aware of his appearance on the world scene caused

consciousness. Uri as a light giver, is telling us
to wake up our minds to the great abundance we have

Uri gave me demonstration of spoon bending. I could
find no evidence of trickery nor the use of gimmicks.
The fact that the spoon continued bending after
he had handed it to me, for my mind, puts the event
beyond rational explanation be it scientific or a
feat of conjuring. He also demonstrated two examples
of thought transference first accurately reproducing
a geometric figure I had drawn and second and perhaps
more significantly transmitting to me a figure and

held a heavy key between my thumb and forefinger.
The key began to bend - too slightly to be perceptible
- after Geller rubbed it lightly with one finger.
The key was then placed on the desk and it continued
to bend slowly for several minutes until it reached
about a 20-degree angle. There was no obvious way
the key I supplied could have been switched. Geller
had no chance (by slight of hand or other trickery)
to bend the key by force. And he didn't have a laser
up his sleeve, assome have suggested. "

experience. . . He manifests an extreme case of some
unusual power, capacity or energy, which I believe

From the Times, Higher Education 2002, Book Review of 'The MindMade Flesh: Essays from the Frontiers of Psychology and Evolution', by Nicholas Humphrey of the London School of Economics, as reviewed by Keith Sutherland:
of his special gifts is in the imaginative reconstruction
of past minds via the medium of the historical record
and through modern parallels. Examples in this book
include an attempt to understand the miracles and
psychology of Jesus via a comparison with Uri Geller;
a claim that Palaeolithic man was autistic (by comparing
cave paintings with the work of autistic savant Nadia);
and an attempt to understand the minds of medieval
jurists via the records of animal trials and executions.
All fascinating stuff, and Humphrey's reconstructions
are often very persuasive."
the powers of Uri Geller Dayan Gavriel Krausz said:"God
gave us powers we do not understands. Healers have
powers in their hands which can miraculously heal
people with invisible energies; it is one of the mysteries
of the world." RT.REV. HUGH MONTEFIORE We have heard
some very interesting things. I particularly want
to thank Uri Geller for being so honest. Who would
have thought that he started his career when drinking
soup at the age of four? Who would have thought that
he was once a male model? And to send a woman Prime
Minister to the loo and to be commended by her. We
had a woman Prime Minister who referred to me as "That
perfectly dreadful man in Birmingham." How different
from Israel! What moved me most about this very interesting
book was that when Uri Geller used his psi ability
for self-aggrandisement, it nearly sent him around
the bend. He spoke about his fear of committing suicide.
This is a gift of God. Now he uses it to help others,
including at a children's hospital. That is surely
the best use. I am very grateful to him for making
that point and for explaining how the extraordinary
powers that some people have, but most do not, can
be used. We have all heard Uri Geller. No doubt we
have all seen him on television. But to see him in
the flesh and to hear him speak so honestly about
his life has been an experience for all of us.

all the years I have known Uri - and we first met
in the early 1970's - I have been fascinated by his

by the way a whole new generation of viewers responded
to Uri's extraordinary psychic talents."
