from the above link to THE document....
See bolded above.....a little more than 'experiments at a kitchen table'.
The Pentagon and an INSCOM retreat with high-ranking personel.....
The Pentagon is a big place. Did they hold these "experiments" at the Caffeteria during Halloween? Who was there? Was it scientifically documented?
...at officers’ or scientists’
homes, and at one quarterly INSCOM retreat attended by the commanding general and a group of
colonels and generals commanding INSCOM units around the globe.
And at their homes...do you know any "high ranking military" commanders that bring this type of classified work home? Or did they have these "spoon benders" stop by the house to perform?
What's an INSCOM retreat?
Someone handed out spoons and forks, and Stubblebine gave a short talk on how it was done, and then 25 to 30 colonels and generals stood around holding these eating utensils and staring at them, waiting for something to happen.
At one point, a somewhat skeptical colonel turned his head to say something to a colleague, and as he did, his fork suddenly drooped into a ninety-degree angle. Everyone looked at him and his fork, at which point the fork bent back up, then down again, and finally settled into an angle of about forty-five degrees. The colonel whose fork it was put the thing down, shaking his head, evidently unsettled. He was a Christian, and later would denounce the entire thing as the trickery of the devil.
I found more about this stuff here.
I think it's a load of hokey-pokey. Trickery. Because being able to bend spoons (metal) with ones mind, would be a highly sought after skill.
