The classic example of mind over matter is spoon bending the ability to make an
ordinary spoon bend until it breaks.
Using the power of the mind.
Watch again as the spoon bends and breaks into two.
How did the phony psychic pull off this scam?
Look closely. He begins by selecting a spoon and he shows us that it's real.
What you don't see is that the spoon has actually been pre-cut almost all the way
through allowing it to break easily.
The psychic holds the school and supposedly focuses his energy on it. But
he's actually using his thumb to snap the spoon into two pieces. By concealing the
break between his fingers
the audience has no idea that he is simply manipulating the spoon to look
like it's bending.
Here's what's really happening. By releasing the pressure on the two halves
the psychic is actually letting the pieces of the spoons slip apart making
it appear to melt. Then he merely drops the two pieces.
