CIA admits to conducting secret psychic experiments on Uri Geller
URI GELLER has been subjected to a series of bizarre covert experiments aimed at militarizing psychic abilities, CIA documents reveal.
The Israeli – famous for his apparent ability to bend spoons with his mind – was taken to the Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s to have his psychic abilities studied.
A recently released cache of CIA documents reveals UFO sightings and psychic experiments from the “Stargate Program”, which has long been of interest to conspiracy theorists.
The project was the code name for a secret US Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland, by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
It aimed to study the potential for the use of psychic phenomena by military and intelligence services.
The Stargate program inspired the 2009 film The Men Who Stare At Goats starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor.
Some of the files surround the bizarre investigation and reveal how Geller was probed during a week-long series of tests.
During these experiments, he was asked to sit in a sealed and watched room.
One of the tests involved drawings. A word has been chosen at random from a dictionary.
The first word selected was “fuse”. A firecracker was then fired by someone outside the locked room.
The photo was then taped to the wall outside Geller’s cell and he was told by intercom that the drawing was complete.
CIA documents say: “His almost immediate response was that he saw a ‘cylinder with noise coming out’.
“His design corresponding to this was a drum, as well as a number of cylindrical-looking objects.”
The second word chosen was “bunch” and a scientist drew a bunch of grapes.
“He then spoke of” purple circles. “
“Finally, he said he was quite sure he had the photo. His drawing was indeed a bunch of grapes.”
The researchers concluded that Uri “demonstrated his ability for paranormal perception convincingly and unambiguously.”
In 2013, Uri Geller lifted the veil on his secret spy past and told how his The spoon antics were just a cover.
The TV magician revealed details of his years as an agent of the two
the CIA and the dreaded Israeli Mossad agency during the Cold War.
