I am damn sure that you have watched “The Matrix”. The best cult movie ever, i would like to add to that ! Well anyway, as interesting the concept is in the movie, where you can easily bend spoons and fly across continents at the speed of light, one question keeps you on the edge of the seat.
Can i bend that spoon ?! Well really. This is not a joke. Can you ? These guys say that you can. Who are they ? They are the Spoonbenders !
I don’t know what causes cutlery to bend, but then I don’t really know exactly why compasses point North or what causes lightning or how the Moon controls the tides, either. I know that all of these things now have scientific explanations, but it’s not too long ago in the scheme of things that we thought that sending sound and pictures through space was a bizarre fantasy. Surely the more we learn, the more we should realise how little we really know.
“Do you remember how electrical currents and ‘unseen waves’ were laughed at ? The knowledge about man is still in its infancy.”
– Albert Einstein.
I don’t claim it’s ‘psychic’ but I think physical & psychological factors certainly come into it, and I think a large part of whatever causes it is subconscious. Perhaps it uses parts of your brain that are normally just reflex. Some mystics can apparently control their heartbeat after years of practice (although whether they can do it in ‘scientific conditions’ is another matter). And though I think it’s got something to do with your brain, I’m not saying it’s paranormal. I think there’s probably a very physical explanation – biochemical, electrical, magnetic or some combination of those things that can temporarily alter the alignment of the molecules in the metal.
OK, so I have no idea as to why or how it works, but it’s still a lot of fun.
– A good read nevertheless and maybe, i could get my mind to bend spoons too. Wanna give it a try ? I am going to anyway …
