Spoon bending

Update: see also my later article “Spoon bending evidence by Dean Radin” for more credible evidence of spoon bending. Spoon bending is a popular topics in the world of parapsychology or paranormal in general and in the field of psychokinesis (PK) in particular. Spoon bending refers to the alleged phenomena when people can bend spoons, forks and other similar objects with little to no force, making some very intriguing forms of them. I first heard of this a long time ago but have never actually witnessed it. I have tried somewhat (without getting special instruction) but without success. Nevertheless, there are some very interesting sites with interesting stories about spoon bending. Of course, one of the more known persons having done spoon bending is the famous Uri Geller. Uri has been performing this a long time ago. There are many skeptics that designate him as a fraud but some people that I respect their opinion find much of his claims genuine. I’ve had asked in my interview with Jeffrey Mishlove, who has a Ph.D. in parapsychology and who worked with Uri Geller in the beginning of his career. Another person whom I respect is Cynthia Sue Larson, the founder of the Reality Shifters website. I’ve also interviewed her and asked about Geller. Here’s what she answered me: I hand-selected the spoon that I brought for Uri Geller to bend,...

Interview with Cynthia Sue Larson

I’m happy to announce the first interview for the Parapsychology articles and blog website! This interview is with Cynthia Sue Larson, who runs the Reality Shifter website, author of 4 books on reality shifts, aura and spirituality and is a spiritual life coach. The interview was conducted by email, so it’s not a dialog but more of a Q&A. 1. Your site is called Reality Shifters. Could you please explain the concept of Reality Shifts? Reality shifts are the manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting… and changes in the way we experience time. They are sudden, abrupt alterations of physical reality with no apparent physical cause… and I consider them to be the source of synchronicity and also the essence of spontaneous remissions from all kinds of disease. It is possible to consciously shift reality, utilizing an awareness that we are all energetic beings, and we can essentially live this life as a kind of waking, lucid dream in which we are connected and capable of influencing everything around us. We are most influential in this manner when we are fully energized; when our energy field is at its strongest. 2. You are the author of 4 books and one meditation CD. Could you please tell about your books. What will the readers learn from them? I’m very pleased to announce that the first book I wrote...

The Purloined Phantom Limb: Solving Sack’s Syncopation Susceptibility

Today, another article by drew hempel who wrote several intriguing articles before, including The Highest Technology of All Technologies: The Yan Xin Secret article. This article is a bit heavy and requires reading it with attention. The Purloined Phantom Limb: Solving Sack’s Syncopation Susceptibility By drew hempel, MA Anti-copyright (free distribution) Professor Oliver Sack’s new book Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain is a treasure-trove of analysis on the mind-body conundrum. Sack previews neuroscientist Patel’s forthcoming book focusing on rhythm as subcortical binding for motor coordination with language. But as Sack notes Patel’s take on the Thai elephant orchestra music (of which I’m a big fan) may be questioned by some readers. The issue is do humans have a unique capacity or, as William James’ stated a “susceptibility” towards music, in contrast to the rest of Nature (and nonwestern cultures) seeming noise? Does this supposed unique ability of human rhythm processing also solves the “binding” problem of the mind-body paradox—also seen as the mystery of long-term potentiation (synapse growth) as an unknown function frequency and amplitude? The answer is amazingly found in the most famous short-story of Edgar Allen Poe who, as Edmund Wilson quotes, wrote that his goal in writing was the “indeterminateness of music.” Poe, the creator of the mystery story, gives the reversal to Freud who, Sacks states: “despised music.” In Poe’s psychoanalysis we find...
