I should like to make a few comments in closing.

I am delighted that some have actually found this demonstration entertaining and worthy of their time. I suppose my goal, if I had one, was to provide an interesting and engaging experience for anyone who would care to follow these events as they unfolded. I'm a little puzzled as to how I managed to anger so many people along the way. This was not my intent and if I upset you, I'm really very sorry. I intended it to be a bit of fun, a bit of relief from some of the more serious discussions, and maybe even something of "a fooler," as they say.

I do have a small confession to make: Nothing really came to me in a dream. I made that bit up because it amused me. But, curiously enough, that's the only time (as far as I'm aware) that anyone lied throughout the course of the entire experiment. I stated in my first post that this would be a "genuine demonstration". It has been. But a genuine demonstration of what? Well, certainly not remote viewing. I'll say that much.

Thank you to anyone who has offered their support to this demonstration, either by posting their thoughts, or simply by keeping an eye on what was going on. I'm thrilled with the way it all went, and imagine that all in all, the odds against the success I've enjoyed are probably something like one in ten billion by now. If that's not conclusive, I don't know what is.

Lastly, a big thank you to Patrick for his earnest and sincere attitude to everything. You were the perfect subject, Mr. Redford.

Smiles to all,
Stephen

No real need to tell us it didn't come to you in a dream buddy LOL

I for one took it as a presentational license. I actually gave you some credit, although it was a little goofy, for trying to spice it up some!

as to angering people lets be clear. We are upset with the claim of "A Gift".

that is the problem. congrats on your conclusion.

Maybe now we can stop with the calling of names of those who disagree. Or is this a third grade board I got to by mistake?

my point mclare is people can have spirited debates on point of view and truth and still treat one another with respect. I didn't interupt Stephens demo and let it unfold for the most part. When proded he NEVER attacked anyone and for that Stephen "cudos"! it was a pleasure to see an adult at work weather it was entertaining or not is not the point in this matter.

so grow up mclare, or didn't you and salsa notice everyone jumping on you when you started acting like children?

so yea the debate is fun, when it is debate and not third grade name calling

I don't understand the problem with the claim of "a gift". He is a magician - he tells untruths - and he performed it for other magicians, who also tell untruths so as to facilitate the illusion.

You don't like Uri Geller? ... Let's not "go there", girlfriend.

Right, since no-one else has suggested starting a similar thread, I will begin one now! ... Join me there, I'll call it "The Circles Of Hell VI", & I'll attempt some sort of Mind Reading demonstration. Pasq.

Thank you all for your comments.

A few things to say about my "gift". First of all, it was (in your own words, Danny) "presentational license," and like Pasq said - I'm lying to liars. Liars who I expected to see my "claim" for what it was. Secondly, since when was having a gift synonomous with being psychic? As far as I'm aware, one may be "gifted" at a great number of things without having any kind of supernatural power. Finally, I never specified what kind of a gift I had. In fact, if you go back and read the first post, I implied I had a similar "gift" to Jack G. That may or may not be true, depending on your personal take on our respective demonstrations.

I guess like I said I really want to believe in RV.. I do.

So when "a gift" is claimed it seems to me to degrade the possability.

As far as lying to liars well that is kind of offensive but I am not debating the topic.

I am glad you are happy with the ending to your effect.

It was good Stephen, and entertaining, I would love to see a 'stronger' demonstration of powers. I would volunteer to achieve this but it tires me out to do so and I have such a long week ahead of me.

The thing that gave me pause was that Patrick replied to Stephen's Original post in 2 minutes! Which means Patrick COINCIDENTLY read Stephen's post about a minute after it was written. To me this is meaningful. Something else I wanted to say but forgot.

I have enjoyed reading through this again. Stephen Long is probably the best remote viewer on here.

Thanks, Salsa.

I had fun re-reading it. I particularly enjoyed the hit that went more or less unnoticed in all the fuss that followed the demonstration: The fact that Patrick's card case contained a deck of cards, that the cards were blue-backed, and that there was a spade on the face of the deck.
