Here are some clips from his show. Really chilling to see how easily this can be done and the impact on people involved ...





On a related note, one of the final bonus questions I asked of my students on the final in my culture & the supernatural class was:
Quote:
Does it matter if there is or is not any real supernatural aspect to any religion or supernatural worldview?


I got a bunch of good answers ... :thumbright:

I remember some of his videos in which he explained some of what he did.

He once claimed to be able to guess what some people had drawn, but he gave those people subtle hints. Thus, he got people to draw pictures of salboats by saying things like "Let your mind sail away, sail away, sail away..."

I'm really interested in hearing exactly how he picked names. And the hats.

We were at a group reading like that, and the medium picked a woman behind us and said that the person coming through, her great aunt, ate celery constantly. How do you 'just guess' that sort of thing? Or names?

(I mean, I can understand Nancy and Robert and Micheal in a few years, but really--- some names are out there)
