Quotes From Scientists


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

Anton West, Ph.D. Expert in fracture of materials, Department of Materials science and engineering Stanford University California.

Validation techniques in the PK area are complicated with curious paranormal phenomena and psychological elements of human beings.

Prof. J.B. Hasted. Physicist, Birkbeck College, University of London.

I am a Psychiatrist with 30 years clinical experience, a conjurer with a wide knowledge of “magic” and someone who has investigated paranormal phenomena and found them wanting in the past.
Uri gave me demonstration of spoon bending. I could find no evidence of trickery nor the use of gimmicks. The fact that the spoon continued bending after he had handed it to me, for my mind, puts the event beyond rational explanation be it scientific or a feat of conjuring. He also demonstrated two examples of thought transference first accurately reproducing a geometric figure I had drawn and second and perhaps more significantly transmitting to me a figure and a colour.

As a life long sceptic I must record my total astonishment at these feats and testify my witness to a truly inexplicable and unique phenomenon. 

Dr. Lawrence Ratna. Consultant Psychiatrist. England

I tested Uri myself under laboratory-controlled conditions and saw with my own eyes the bending of a key which was not touched by Geller at any time. There was a group of people present during the experiment who all witnessed the key bending in eleven seconds to an angle of thirty degrees. Afterwards we tested the key in a scientific laboratory using devices such as electron microscopes and X-rays and found that there was no chemical, manual or mechanical forces involved in the bending of the key.

Professor Helmut Hoffmann. Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Vienna, Austria.

I have always felt that you are able to perform the phenomena ascribed to you, at least under favourable conditions, and was happy with your success at the November conference inSeattle.

William A. Tiller Ph.D. Professor. Stanford University, Department of materials science and engineering.


The power that you have throws up some fascinating questions about the evolution of these special forces you are using, and I think that what we have to do is start looking at it in a new evolutionary way, so that we can understand whether it had some hidden un-thought function before there was worked metal. Maybe this is the way we found iron ore in the first place? Maybe human beings have a homing ability, maybe this is actually related to the homing abilities which rely on our response to magnetic forces?

Dr. Desmond Morris. Author, Anthropologist and Painter.


I held a heavy key between my thumb and forefinger. The key began to bend – too slightly to be perceptible – after Geller rubbed it lightly with one finger. The key was then placed on the desk and it continued to bend slowly for several minutes until it reached about a 20-degree angle. There was no obvious way the key I supplied could have been switched. Geller had no chance (by slight of hand or other trickery) to bend the key by force. And he didn’t have a laser up his sleeve, as some have suggested.

Dr. Robert J. Trotter. Science News vol 104 USA.


I think Uri is a magician, but I don’t particularly believe that he is using trickery. I believe there are psychic abilities. They don’t accord with any science we have at the moment, but maybe some future science will back them up with theories.

Brian Josephson. Professor of Physics, University of Cambridge, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics, 1973.

I have had more than fifty years experience with psychics and would-be psychics. From having observed Geller bend a volunteered latchkey under excellent conditions, and from having studied Mr. Geller’s record of tests under various auspices, I have not the slightest doubt that his psychic abilities are genuine.

Jule Eisenbud M.D. Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center- U.S.A.


I have personally witnessed and experienced on two occasions the metal bending abilities of Uri Geller. These experiments were conducted under rigorous laboratory conditions. In these two experiments the thick steel rod I was holding and observing carefully bent, and continued to bend, in my own hand. One rod bent to 90 degrees during a period of approximately six minutes while I was holding it. The other steel rod bent after Uri stroked it and continued bending on a glass table without anyone touching it. The steel rods were provided by myself. I consider the Geller effect to be a phenomenon which should be studied seriously by science. 

A scientist would have to be either massively ignorant or a confirmed bigot to deny the evidence that the human mind can make connection with space, time and matter in ways which have nothing to do with the ordinary senses. Further, he cannot deny that these connections are compatible with current thinking in physics, and may in the future become accepted as a part of an extended science in which the description ‘paranormal’ no longer applies, and can be replaced by ‘normal’.

Dr. Kit Pedler. Head of the Electron Microscopy department, University of London.

"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."
