Are psychic powers real?
First, I’ll give you the short answer: Nope.
Now, let’s dive into that conclusion for a minute. During research for The R.E.M. Effect, I came across some interesting topics surrounding the idea of mind control.
While most articles alluded to things like telepaths, mind readers, superheroes, and the CIA’s MK-Ultra project, one article caught my attention in a different way.
It was an excerpt from a book written by one of America’s top psychics, and he was calling out his peers. According to ex-psychic/medium Mark Edward, all psychics are frauds.
What’s even more interesting is something else Edward points out: that so-called psychic abilities are really a form of mind control, using clever tricks and persuasive speech to convince people to believe everything you want them to believe.
So if you’ve ever wanted to take a peek into the mind of one of America’s top psychics, now’s your chance.
Oh, and if you’re scheduled for a palm reading in the near future, don’t forget to cancel it.
