In essence, anyone who publically claims to possess magical powers is most likely lying.
Playing with cards and objects, even with our minds, is one thing; bending the fabric of what constitutes reality on the spot is a different level entirely.
"bending the fabric of what constitutes reality on the spot is a different level entirely"
I don't know about that since Organised religions have been doing just that throughout recorded history.
Human beings do not have extrasensory perception.
People cannot bend spoons and forks with their minds.
There is no telepathy, no telekinesis and no pyrokinesis.
Human beings do not have psychic powers of any kind. People cannot astrally project themselves and out-of-body experiences are hallucinations.
People and objects do not have mystical auras. Human beings do not have clairaudience, clairvoyance, dermo-optical perception, xenoglossy, vinyl vision, precognition, psi powers, psychokinesis, remote viewing powers, retrocognition, second sight, a sixth sense or teleportation.
Human beings cannot talk to the dead. Seances and scrying are fake.
Ouija boards are fake.

Thanks for being a good sport!
I like to have fun but, I am interested in the broader subject of pan-consiousness, etc.
Human beings cannot talk to the dead. Seances and scrying are fake. Ouija boards are fake. Channeling is a trick. Automatic and trance writing is a hoax.
As far as other types of magic goes - I've seen Eastern spiritualism operate on fairly deep levels. Remote viewing, and Astral Projection and stuff like that, I have reason to believe exist from my personal experience, online research and interviews.
