- Plate 3. Occipital EEG spectra, 0-20 Hz, for one subject (H. H.) acting as receiver, showing amplitude changes in the 9-11 Hz band as a function of strobe frequency. Three cases: 0, 6, and 16 flashes per second. (12 trial averages).
- Plate 4. Two pieces of nitinol wire. Upper: The straight, normal shape of the wire before Uri Geller rubbed it gently with his fingers. Lower: The shape of the wire after Uri Geller rubbed it, and after it had been heated in the laboratory to restore its original, straight configuration. The wire is now permanently deformed.
- Plate 5. A shadowgraph of one of the pieces of nitinol bent by Uri Geller. The radius of curvature of the bend was found to be less than one mm.
- Plate 6. This piece of nitinol wire rubbed gently by Uri Geller developed multiple two-dimensional bends which are permanent.
- Plate 7. Uri Geller’s influence on this piece of nitinol induced a three-dimensional, permanent bend. After Geller’s rubbing, the wire took the shape of an ellipse. The only known technique by which one can bring about this result is twisting the wire into an ellipse, constraining it so that it cannot move, and then heating it to a temperature of about 500 Celsius.
- Plate 8. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) photograph at a magnification of 570X of the surface of the Geller fracture in the stainless steel spoon. The dimpled pattern with a lacy white filigree is typical of ductile failure. The angle from the vertical, which affects the image characteristics, was forty-five degrees.
- Plate 9. Laboratory fracture surface at 660X and thirty degrees. Plates 8 and 9 are typical of the Geller and lab fracture surfaces, respectively. The differences between the Geller and lab fracture surfaces, as shown in Plates 8 and 9, do not appear to have significance.
- Plate 10. A crack in the shank of the spoon adjacent to the Geller fracture is shown in the center of the figure.
- Plate 11. The crack shown in the previous figure at ten times higher magnification (22OX). The unusual viscous appearance in this and the next figure is not typical of room-temperature fracture.
- Plate 12. Bottom of the crack at 11OOX. The microstructure is typical of high-temperature rather than room-temperature shear.
- Plate 13. Fracture surface in a platinum ring broken by Geller.
- Plate 14. Lower right quarter of the fracture surface of the platinum ring. This quarter contained regions that resembled low-temperature cleavage and incipient melting. Magnification 210X at an angle of thirty degrees.
- Plate 15. Upper left region of the field of view of Plate 14 showing small protuberances and a depression. This region is suggestive of locaised incipient melting. Magnification 1115X, angle thirty degrees.
- Plate 16. Lower right region of the field of view of Plate 14 showing a flat terraced structure with small geometrical shapes. The former is characteristic of low-temperature cleavage. Magnification 23OOX, angle thirty degrees.
- Plate 17. Central region of Plate 10 at the higher magnification of 12,OOOX and an angle of thirty degrees. The geometric shapes reflect the face-centered-cubic structure of platinum and are probably inclusions or vacancy clusters.
- Plate 18. (Courtesy of Psychic magazine) This sequence of photos from a Super 8 movie film taken by James Bolen, editor and publisher of Psychic magazine, shows Uri Geller breaking a dinner fork in two by rubbing it gently. The fork, which Bolen personally verified as being intact before the demonstration, gradually becomes pliable at its midsection as Geller rolls his thumb and index finger over it. The fork finally breaks apart, the prong part clinging slightly to the handle just before it drops away, suggesting that the stainless steel momentarily became plasticlike. To verify that no deception occurred in the developing and printing of the film, Bolen secured the following affidavit from the photo lab.
This is to certify that I, Ralph Elliott of Ramell, a photoprocessing laboratory of professional standards at 650 Howard Street, San Francisco, California, did receive from James Grayson Bolen three rolls of Super 8 movie film on May 7, 1973, and had them processed for Mr. Bolen. I hereby state that Mr. Bolen did not have access to the film at any time during the processing thereof and that I released the film.to him – two full rolls developed and one undeveloped because it was unexposed – on this the eighth day of May, 1973. I hereby place my hand in signature to state that the foregoing is factual and correct.

Plate 35. A photograph of a typical magnetic program card consisting of a .0004-inch-thick layer of iron oxide bonded to a .008-inch-thick plastic base. (HP 65 magnetic program card.)
Plate 36. The normal magnetic pattern stored in the iron oxide layer is seen at the top of the picture. It is made visible by a magnetic viewer, which is a colloidal suspension of fine iron oxide particles. The stored magnetic field in the card penetrates the colloidal solution and condenses the particles along the lines of force causing a dark region to form.
Plate 37. Card 2: This card had been rubbed by Geller’s fingers, and subsequently rejected from a program calculator. A study of the card revealed that the magnetic patterns had been altered. Mere rubbing of a card normally has no effect on its magnetic program.
Plate 38. Card 3: The magnetic program on this card was also found to be altered after the card had been rubbed by Geller.
Plate 39. In a double-blind experiment performed at Western Kentucky University, Uri Geller correctly determined the target figure, a Star of David. His final attempt is the drawing on the right.
Plate 40. Spoons influenced by Uri Geller at the home of Dr. Thomas P. Coohill. The spoon on the far left, which mysteriously dropped onto a carpeted floor, made a metallic “clink”; on examination it was found to be bent. Dr. Coohill picked up the spoon and as he held it in his hand it began to bend in another plane – at a right angle to the original bend (middle spoon). The long teaspoon on the far right was broken when Uri Geller merely passed his hands over it while it was held between the palms of Mrs. Thomas Coohill’s hands.
Plate 41. (Courtesy of Guy Briggs) Mrs. Thomas Coohill examines a spoon that was observed to bend two days after Uri Geller’s visit to her home.
Plate 42. Simulation of a key-bending event: Uri Geller bent an ordinary three-inch skeleton key while psychic researcher and magician William Cox held his forefinger against one end of the key. The key bent to an angle of thirty-six degrees. Cox held a mirror in the background to provide him a greater viewing range of the subject’s motions. (Simulation by William Cox and a member of the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man, Durham, North Carolina. The key is the one that was actually bent by Geller.)
Plate 43. A Hamilton pocket watch belonging to William Cox. Before testing Geller for his ability to repair damaged watches, researcher Cox inserted a piece of aluminum foil over the watch’s internal regulator arm, which was set in the F (Fast) position. The obstruction prevented the watch from running properly.
Plate 44. Geller knew nothing about the foil obstruction in the watch, but after he held it in his hand (the watch had a double-backed case), it began to tick. On examination Cox found that the foil had shifted ninety degrees and pulled out of the balance arm; the regulator arm had moved a total of forty degrees (its extreme limit) to the S (Slow) position.
Plate 45. (Courtesy of Bernard Gotfryd) A fork made of forged steel with a nylon-reinforced handle shattered in Uri Geller’s hand, sending fragments across the room. The fork had been handed to Geller by professional magician Artur Zorka. Zorka and fellow magician Abb Dickson detected no sign of trickery on Geller’s part.
Plate 46. Target drawings made by Artur Zorka and Abb Dickson, with Geller’s responses. The last two images, those of a dog and of a twice-bisected circle, were not drawn on paper, but only thought of by Artur Zorka. Adjacent to them are Geller’s impressions of Zorka’s thoughts.
Plate 47. (Courtesy of Lawrence Fried) Uri Geller attempts to photograph himself through the covered lens of a camera. The lens cap was tightly secured by generous amounts of two-inch-wide, clothlike tape. Geller “exposed” an entire roll of 35-mm film in his try at “thought photography.”
Plate 48. (Courtesy of Lawrence Fried) Frame number 10, the only one on the roll of film that contained an image, shows Geller, somewhat blurred and out of focus, seated at the exact location where he had taken the “thought” picture.
Plate 49. (Courtesy of Robin Owen) A key bent by Uri Geller without his touching it. The bending process was photographed by a close-up television camera and viewed by a large audience.
Plate 50. (Courtesy of Robin Owen) The same key displayed to show the angle of the bend.
Plate 51. (Courtesy of Robin Owen) Rare items bent or broken by Uri Geller before Dr. A. R. G. Owen of the New Horizons Research Foundation, Toronto, Ontario, and members of a television audience.
Plate 52. A vanadium carbide crystal had been encapsulated in a plastic pharmaceutical capsule (drawn here). One scientist at Birkbeck College held his hand over the capsule and Geller held his hand above the scientist’s. After a few moments the capsule jumped a slight distance. On examination it was found that about half the vanadium carbide crystal was missing.
Plate 53. A disc of molybdenum crystal bent by Uri Geller without his touching it. Geller’s hands were held above those of one of the researchers, whose hands in turn were above the disc. At the time the disc bent the researcher felt a tingling sensation in his hands.
Plate 54. Geiger counter circuit and chart recorder trace. Uri Geller held the screen of a Geiger counter in his hand continuously for about fifty minutes. During that time eight count-rate pulses, of approximately a second each in duration, were recorded (a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h).
Plate 55. Uri Geller is wired with electrodes to measure his brain-wave response during telepathy experiments and during his attempts at producing psychokinetic phenomena.
Plate 56. (Courtesy of G. Delrey) Geller attempts to deflect the needle of a compass. After achieving only a slight deflection, Geller asked that the scientists and technicians gather around him. His subsequent attempt was considerably more successful.
Plate 57. Some of the metal objects bent by D. F. (aged sixteen).
Plate 58. Some of the metal objects bent by a “mini-Geller,” a little girl of eleven.
Plate 59. Microscopic examination showing metallographic structure of a key at the location where it was bent by Uri Geller. No evidence of recrystallization or any softening could be found. The brittle chromium plating was cracked.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“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.”

“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.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“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.”
