Hi Enzo, that cardboard visual block is interesting. I must get that book too. However I've read about those controlled tests failing somewhere . Can't recollect where.
Another OT subject : Have you seen that Asian man ( Indonesia?) who can cure problems with bodily generated electricity. Even shocks others who touch him or the patient he is treating ! How could he fake that ? Apparently though it causes an 'electric shock' type reaction on other people a DMM couldn't measure it as a high voltage !
It's on Youtube.

Sorry, good question but OT. Need to start another thread for that...but a valid question !
Let this thread stay with thoughts, suggestions, answers about the said 'pendulum effect'.

I just started another thread for that:
Psychokinesis believers please raise your hand

Oh come on. These people make their living doing this stuff, you expect them to be bad at it? or amateurish? Have you not ever "seen" someone make the Statue of Liberty disappear, or a live elephant disappear? Or in fact a Lear Jet disappear, right in front of a live audience? They "saw it with their own eyes." Yet we all know it is an illusion.

Have you not heard of the psychic healers who perform "surgery" with their bare hands? Maybe even seen the films? Guy seems to push his hand right through the chest of the patient, pulls out the evil parts from the body and withdraws without leaving the slightest scar. AMAZING!!! Well not really amazing, it is sleight of hand, but looks convincing.

Please do read Flim Flam, it has a chapter each for many such scams. And thoroughly discusses them and how they are done, and more importantly exposing some of the perpetrators.

Hi there A: At the Smithsonian InstitutionNatural History museum in Washingon D.C., USA, , a pendulum is hung from the rotunda ceiling on about 80 feet of piano wire, it swings in in an arc about 25 feet. at the edge of the arc the caretakers set up a circle of pins weigheted at their bottom. During the course of every day the pendulum knockes over the pins one at a time following the circle in one direction. Any one who would like to reverse the direction, can demonstrate their will power, in public, no camera tricks or magicians props! Be advised that a great will power will be necessary to reverse the rotation of the earth! ...regards, Michael
