Spoon-bending ‘psychic’ Uri Geller says US government tested him to see if his mind could power nuclear weapons
Spoon-bending celebrity ‘psychic’ Uri Geller has claimed US Government scientists tested him to see if his mind could “get a nuclear weapon going”.
He said he was subjected to a series of experiments at Lawrence Livermore Radiation Laboratory, which designed and maintains a series of nuclear warheads.
His revelation came after previously CIA files disclosed that Geller was put through his paces by experts at Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s to see if his claims of psychic abilities could be proven.
Documents released earlier this month revealed Geller, who was already a well-established performer at the time, was asked to perform a number of tests including drawing experiments.
Speaking for the first time about the tests, Geller said: “What the CIA has released now is just the tip of the iceberg.
“I have done quite a lot of experiments for them, in different fields like levitating a balance weight from an electronic scale, to locating minerals in metal cans – incredible.
“And I was not only tested in Stanford, I also went through the Lawrence Livermore Radiation Labs where they built nuclear weapons.
“I think the tasks there was to see if my mind can, you know, get a nuclear weapon going. Shocking.”
The experiments included a week-long series of tests in which Geller was asked to sit in a sealed and monitored room and a word was selected at random from a dictionary.
Someone outside the room would draw a picture prompted by the word and Geller was asked to sketch what he could believed they had drawn.
The spoon-bender said: “They were looking at the drawing and they were transmitting it to me while I was sitting in the shielded room.
“And again with a marker, I just drew what was coming into my inner mind.
“Some of them were very complicated, some of them I got point on, like they bunch of grapes – they drew 24 grapes, I drew 24 grapes.”
According to the CIA papers, after a participant drew grapes in response to the word ‘bunch’, “Geller’s immediate response was that he saw ‘drops of water coming out of the picture’.”
The reported added: “He then talked about ‘purple circles’.
“Finally, he said that he was quite sure that he had the picture. His drawing was indeed a bunch of grapes.
“Both the target picture and Geller’s rendition had 24 grapes in the bunch.”
Although Geller failed several times to draw anything remotely close to the test drawing, examiners concluded in their report: “As a result of Geller’s success in this experimental period, we consider that he has demonstrated his paranormal perception ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner.”
Geller said public scepticism about his supposed powers was “a good cover for me” while he worked with the US Government.
He explained: “The controversy, the sceptics kept me safe. It was an inbuilt safety device for me while I could secretly work for secret intelligence services.
“How I feel about it today? I look back at my career and the work and I say, ‘Hey, I did some amazingly fascinating things that brought in positive information that enhanced peace’.”
The ‘psychic’ also claims to have foreseen the rises to power of both Donald Trump and Theresa May, who he said refused to believe him when he predicted she would be Prime Minister.
Geller said: “In September, on my Facebook I wrote, ‘Whether you like him or not, Donald Trump is going to be the 45th president of the United States’. And I was right.
“And when Theresa May, the Prime Minister of England, visited my home two and half years before she became the prime minister, I looked her in the eye, like this, I held up a spoon that belonged to Winston Churchill and I said, ‘Theresa, you are going to be the Prime Minister of England’.
“She smiled, she said, ‘no way’, and I was right.”
The papers on Geller were among 13 million released online by the CIA after being declassified.
Others published included the recipe for invisible ink and data on UFOs.
