Quotes From Scientists


I was in Scientific laboratories at Stanford Research Institute investigating a rather amazing individual Uri Geller. Uri’s ability to perform amazing feats of mental wizardry is known the world over. We in Science are just now catching up and understanding what you can do with exercise and proper practise.Uri is Not a magician. He is using capabilities that we all have and can develop with exercise and practice. 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.

Dr Edgar D. Mitchell S.C.D. Apollo 14 Astronaut and 6th man to walk on the moon.

We feel that if similar tests are made later, enough instances of this kind will probably accumulate, so that there will be no room for reasonable doubt that some new process is involved here, which cannot be accounted for or explained in terms of the present known laws of physics. Indeed, we already feel that we have gone some distance toward this point.

Prof. David Bohm and Prof. John Hasted. Professors of Physics, Birkbeck College, University of London, England)

Geller has bent my ring in the palm of my hand without ever touching it. Personally, I have no scientific explanation for the phenomena.

Dr. Wernher von Braun. NASA scientist & father of the Rocket

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.

Col. John Alexander, Ph.D. Former director of Advanced System Concepts Office, U.S. Army Laboratory Command. Senior Fellow at the Joint Special Operations University (JSOU).

Geller asked me to put my hand over a spoon supplied by me, we could all see the spoon clearly. Geller then put his own hand over mine and began concentrating. It was just as he stopped that we all saw the handle of the spoon begin to distort.

Dr Edward W Bastin. Holds doctorate degrees in both physics and mathematics. He won an Isaac Newton studentship to Cambridge University, and for a time was visiting fellow at Stanford University, California.

I 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.

This phenomenon is merely a reflection of how fast evolution – including molecular-genetic effects – is going. . .

Uri bent a strong heat-treated alloy bar held by myself and my assistant at each end. There was absolutely no pressure exerted by Uri while the bar was bending. All the controlled experiments I conducted with Uri have been described in Scienceset Avenir, No. 345, pp. 1108-1113.

Professor Charles Crussard. Professor of Metallurgy, School of Mines, Paris, and Scientific Director of Pecheney, France.


I put the spoon that Uri bent into my pocket and kept checking it every 3-4 minutes. It gradually bent to about 90 degrees in 15 minutes while in my own possession with no-one around me. The spoon was later examined by electron beam scattering. In my opinion, shared by my physicist colleagues, the phenomenon cannot be induced by our present laboratory means. It cannot be explained with our present knowledge.

Professor George Egeyly. Physicist, Hungarian Academy of Sciences Central Research Institute for Physics, Budapest – Hungary

Attempts made to replicate this type of fracture in conventional ways were unsuccessful.

"Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity."
