Many persons do believe they have an ability that is beyond what we think is the normal five senses. I am one to consider the possibility it is true.
I would like to see proof when someone makes a claim of telekinesis or another extraordinary power. Someone had posted a video of a person doing magic
and slight of hand. The tricks were very good, but I have seen magicians do the tricks before. The poster claimed that just because a magician could
do it, it still could be psychic activity. I would counter if they were psychic, why not do something different to show they are really psychic.
There are also people who claim to communicate with the deceased. These people are the ones I really get upset about because they prey on people who
are in a terrible emotional state. They were the ones Houdini went after. There were a couple of TV shows that starred people who made that claim. The
shows were heavily edited to show they had a gift, when they did not.
There are some scientists who have tested people, and were excited when someone picked 42% correct when the average is 33%. The people picked from
three objects to what someone was thinking. I took a multiple guess final exam in chemistry in high school. I just filled in the dots (I was terrible
in that class) and scored the highest grade of all his five classes. It was pure luck!
I have ordered a book about Wolf Messing, and I will read it when I receive it. I do think people do have these abilities, but will not jump to the
conclusion until there is verification.
