Quotes From Scientists
I have failed to conceive of any means of deception in the static PK tests with Geller, nor have magicians I have consulted.
William E. Cox. Institute of Parapsychology, Durham,North Carolina – U.S.A.
Through intense concentration, Uri was able to bend a 3/8″ cold rolled steel bar under controlled conditions, as he rubbed the top of it with his forefinger. I was sitting very close to him during this experiment. On another occasion, a radish seed sprouted and grew 1/2″ as he held it in his hand. I watched this very closely as well.
Jean Millay PhD. Saybrook Institute U.S.A.
Based on preliminary investigations of Uri, I cannot establish fraud. The powers of this man are a phenomenon which theoretical physics cannot yet explain.
Dr Friedbert Karger. Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Munich, Germany.
There is no logical explanation for what Geller did here. But I don’t think logic is what necessarily makes new inroads in science.
Dr Thomas Coohill. Western Kentucky University, PhysicsDept., Bowling Green, Kentucky – U.S.A.
The Geller Effect is one of those “para” phenomena which changed the world of physics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this century could grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.
Dr. Walter A. Frank. Bonn University – Germany.
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.
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
Metal objects were bent or divided (by Geller) in circumstances such as to prove conclusively … that the phenomena were genuine and paranormal.
Dr A. R. G. Owen. New Horizons Research Foundation,Toronto, Ontario – Canada.
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
We have observed certain phenomena with the subjects [including Geller] for which we have no scientific explanation.
As a result of Geller’s success in this experimental period, we consider that he has demonstrated his paranormal, perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.
(The results of these experiments were published in the respected British journal Nature,Vol. 251, No. 5).
Dr Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ. Stanford Research Institute – California, U.S.A.
Uri appears to have concentrated energy. What makes me accept Geller at face value is that unlike a magician, he does not have a bag of tricks. He bends spoons. The one he bent with me peering over his shoulder continued to bend even after he placed it on the ground and stepped away. The Talmud claims there are two types of “magic.” One is the “catching of the eye,” an optical illusion. The other is the real thing, a mustering of the forces of nature. With Uri, I opt for the latter, though he claims he has no idea how these are mustered.
Professor Gerald Schroeder.
