I'm too busy winning in Vegas for this. 

Exactly what i was thinking. Why would anyone want anyone to know they have such a gift? Discreet, place your bet, win, feign excitement walk away with millions, enjoy life and if you are a good soul, help others with your gifts.

 

Personally I have seen very weird occurrences in my life, things that cannot be explained by anyone. Although I have never seen these specific powers materialize in my personal life, I hold out hope that there are some, maybe one in a billion, that can do super spectacular things and use it for good. I would not say no to these powers if they existed and could be learned. Imagine the possibilities. What an absolutely awesome gift to have, if it is possible.

Correct me if I’m wrong, wasn’t it a million dollars at one point? With janes randi or something like that?

The CIA of the United States government released 13 million pages of declassified documents online not long ago. Those included experiments they performed with Uri Geller and his remote viewing ability. Note that the link that follows is the actual cia.gov certified Central Intelligence Agency [US] website. https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP96-00791R000100480003-3.pdf

I know someone who could easily win that, and he could've won Randi's million, but he won't come forward.

He prefers his life just the way it is.

How convenient.

A strong vibrating energy between his hands. I think it's a Psi Ball, but I don't know much about them.

And, other than his word, how does this manifest itself? Can he actually do anything with this "energy"?

I found this statement to be rather odd.  Proving their claims are nonsense will make them look ridiculous, won't it?    

I wonder if they have co-workers and friends watching through one way glass.   It would be funny watching someone trying to make a piece of paper move.  

 

 "We're not here to make people look ridiculous," said researcher Rainer Wolf who oversees the testing. "We just want to show that many such claims are nonsense."

Maybe it's like a radio show prize if someone fails the prize goes up.

It's going to reach an extremely high number if that's how it works.

Maybe it is a number with supernatural powers of making all the tests fail!

Myself, I don't demonstrate my superpowers for anything less than $100,000.00. Just Kidding .... $50,000 works for me!

They spent 20 million and got nothing. 

Puts these prizes to shame doesnf it. 

All that money and still nothing. 

I suppose we got a good book and a funny movie out of it. That's about it though.

I don't know. I think psychological warfare might have been born out of it. Not psychic scanners head popping nonsense.

US 'intelligence' claimed the Russians had been doing research in this area, and the CIA felt they had to keep up. 

Paranoia and rumour, the same thing that aways has, and still keeps producing paranormal claims.

It ended up that way, but I don't think the Soviets actually had anything going at the time, and I haven't heard about such a huge amount of money being wasted by them like the CIA did.

If Uri was any good and Cia found him genuine and useful he would be now heading the USA department of psych defense unit.

Please explain.

I don't think it's "convenient" that your life will be turned upside-down, when you presently have a happy home with a wife and five children.

As I said on page 1, I don't know what he can do with it. Although he has demonstrated it to me, he doesn't like the subject being brought up. That's his choice.

It's very convenient that powers that would change physics, biology and evolutionary theory forever always seem to be in the possession of people who never want to do anything with it other than make youtube videos.

Not only do I not believe their claims, I don't think they understand the claims they're making.

And what form did the demonstration take? Did you measure heat? Sound? Light?

I didn't know what to expect, but I experienced the heat and vibration he created between his hands.

Anyone can experience that if they're suggestive enough and want it to be true. Again - it's very convenient that he'll go down that route rather than actually prove it.
