Turning off a Lamp Post with Mind Power

Is it really possible to turn off a street light with mind power?

Watch the videos below of Uri Geller using mind power to turn off street lights, and decide for yourself if you believe. 

This is a phenomenon known as SLI “street light interference” which is something currently being studied. Uri isn’t the only person who appears to have this effect on lamp posts, in fact you may be able to do it yourself! Just try it, ensuring of course that in doing so you’re not going to be putting yourself or anyone else in any danger due to the sudden lack of light. 

This ability to cause changes in electrical devices isn’t restricted to lights. Uri discovered in the early 1970s when being tested at Stanford Research Institute, that he had the ability to cause various changes in various different devices, including being able to wipe floppy disks and move compass needles with mind power.

“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 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.”
