Uri Geller dowsing for treasure

Postby Nostradamus » 09 Mar 2010, 13:30

I saw this article and I knew this would be fun read for csicop.

From http://news.scotsman.com/scotland/Uri-Geller-looks-to-excavate.6131656.jp
The self-styled "mystifier" said he plans to return to Lamb Island this summer, after spending Saturday night camping on the island. He said he had a strong feeling there is buried treasure there, after exploring the island with dowsing rods.


He said he hoped to win permission to search for the Egyptian treasure which he believes could be buried there. His theory is that Princess Scota, the sister of Tutankhamen, was exiled there after fleeing Egypt 3,000 years ago, and she may have left gold and jewels behind.


He makes a claim and a disclaimer together. Imagine that!
"There is a place where I think there is something, but it is a very long shot."


Although Mr Geller did not find any treasure, he left a crystal sphere, which once belonged to Albert Einstein, and a heart-shaped piece of quartz. He also enjoyed visiting Rosslyn Chapel, before leaving yesterday .

Here is another article and its sure to please csicop
From http://news.scotsman.com/scotland/Uri-Geller39s-night-on-treasure.6130298.jp
"I want you all to come closer," he smiles out loud. "Everyone." Then Geller does his thing. He gently rubs the neck of the old teaspoon until it starts to bend, a little at first, and then more.


This next sentence is so weird I had to include it.
He was in Tokyo when he decided to buy, from a Hebrew-speaking Brazilian-Scottish baron (Geller paid £30,000 for Lamb, well below the asking price of £75,000, but he pointedly denied using his powers to get a discount).


From the article you learn that it has interesting properties:
1. There are already bent spoons on the island
2. It's a good place to see UFOs
3. King Tut's sister used to live there

In case you've wonder about King Tut's sister and how she ended in the British Isles here is a little background. Please remain seated while reading this, because it is a set of dizzy stretches of the imagination.

Ralph Ellis an amateur historian wrote Scota, Egyptian Queen of Scots.
Ellis claims that Scota was really Ankhesenamun, daughter of Akhenaton and Nefertiti and wife of Tutankhamen
He also claims that her husband was also a pharoah
Scota and her pharoah husband are forced into exile and go to Spain
Then after 4 generations they go to Ireland

How do we know that Egyptian exiles landed in Ireland around 1200BC?
1. Necklaces
2. One mummified head
3. Tombs with the right architecture sans hieroglyphics
4. Boats - the Egyptians built boats and so did other peoples of Europe (I didn't make this up)
5. The Irish are good at winning Nobel prizes in literature (I am not making that up)
6. Sean Connery's movie "The Rose" (This is really part of the claim. I am not kidding)
7. Gaelic, the language

Is this Geller effect something like suggesting that something is happening when nothing is happening and then rotating the spoon so that perspective suggests change is happening?

kind of..

after you start revealing that the spoon bend (or keys or coins), you place the object in the table or in the hands of the spectator
and start suggesting.. ¨look.. it is still bending and i am not even touching it¨

i gotta tell you
i always do this in my metal bending routines (mostly coins, i am not going to be carrying a bunch of spoons)
and some of the time you find spectators rather suggestable that will fall for it
(oh my god!! is still bending in my hands!! how are you doing this??)
and some other times people doesnt swallow the suggestion and those times.. it really doesnt matter anyway
if it is a hit you have a miracle
if it doesnt register people just forget it
it´s a rather strong subtetlie i have enjoyed a lot

thats why i laugh when i hear kevin talking about uri
is a spectator talking about magic tricks and simple psychology he doesnt understand

That's really interesting. The power of suggestion is so strong.

That is definitely a win-no lose situation. Thanks.

i love suggestion
i am a psychologist and currently i am studying hypnotherapy (yet another time, just to learn new approaches and refresh old things)
and i was so impressed this past saturday
we touch the subject of quitting smoking and eating disorders...
so on the 1st one.. the professor made the client cry... and cry.. it was sooo.. strong and intriguing..
and on the 2nd theme.. the woman that was hipnotized (the client).. started puking...
i never saw anybody puking while hypnotized before..

i love the human brain.. so intriguing and fascinating
way more interesting than psi
