Uri visits the Oxford Union (Courier, Oxford)

Uri plays his mind games at the Union
SOME SAY it’s magic, others say a load of rubbish, but students at the Oxford Union have been given the chance to make up their own minds about the powers of Uri Geller.
The man famous for astonishing scientists with the power of his mind came to the Union on Monday night to try and convince everyone of his extraordinary gifts.
Many members of the audience were sceptical scientists and had come along to see what all the fuss has been about.
But President of the Oxford Union, Theo Mills, watched Mr Geller’s performance and said when the audience were all holding spoons and concentrating the power of their minds onto them the non-believers were forced to think again.
He said: “It really was amazing. I normally think this kind of thing is a load of rubbish, but I really think there was something of the paranormal kind at work.”

"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 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"
