Great Minds think Alike

Great minds think alike Why didn’t God send a plague on the Nazis at the time of the Holocaust? Why is it that it in the most affluent nations on Earth one in three are on anti-depressants? Are the 10 Commandments still relevant in the 21st century?
Since the days of the patriarchs we have constantly been seeking answers to questions — and deep down we know we are never going to get most. of them.
But that shouldn’t stop us from taking a stab at them. After all that’s the basis of philosophy and reasoning and Lent and the Feast of the Passover are ideal moments to consider higher matters. Two great thinkers of our time. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and the controversial paranormalist Un
Geller, could hardly have come from different cultures and standpoints though they have been great friends for years — and in their correspondence over two years they have discussed a whole raft of questions that have caused mankind to look into the self since, as the “Camelot” song goes, ~‘the whole rigmarole began.” Now we are able to be privy to their musings and conclusions thanks to the publication of Confessions of a Rabbi and a Psychic.
The bearded rabbi is a wise, open-minded sceptic who trusts his dagger eyes and religious instincts; Un, also a Jew, is the anti-establishment man who performs seemingly impossible
feats of metal-bending and who honestly admits he hasn’t found a single explanation for so much that he knows to be true. At one point, Un writes that he feels a terrific flow of energy flowing between himself and Shmuley; it is something that the reader of any faith or none at all can
also share. As we grow older we become mature — but, writes Shmuley, substitute that for “cynical, untrusting, manipulative and scheming.” It is the innocents who still inherit the Garden of Eden, he says — “Why our children of course.”
“The average child smiles 74 times a day, the average adult only nine.”

"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."

"There is no spoon!"
"The world needs your amazing talents. I need them"
"The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues."

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."

"Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind"
"I Have watched Uri Geller... I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again."
"Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae's in bloom"
