Its funny how the ones performing these experiments suddenly adopt a certain tone of voice, glazed with an air of profundity.

Come on SD! Let's be having the climax!

I'm concentrating on it too, just to help out.

(Interesting choice of image, Stephen, I must say!)

Good luck, Salsa! Are you going tonight? If so, see you there.

Please accept my sincerest apologies for the delay in responding. I had forgotten all about my New Year commitments when I had started the thread. All the extra cerebral activity had caused a minor malfunction. I am almost ready to bring it all to a dramatic conclusion, before I do, Stephen I would like to offer up some more information that I feel that I have gained about the book itself.

I am sensing that you chose a book that wasn't too big, but you wanted to make it challenging so you chose a book with at least 200 pages in it but I would say no more than 250, you didn't want to make this too difficult for me! Would I be right in saying that you settled on a picture towards the front of the book, not too far in?

I will also say that this book has a dust jacket, am I correct?

I am not sure to what you refer when making this, rather succinct, observation. I am often down my local drinking establishment regaling and telling tales of mirth and mischief in the very same tones that I have used in this thread.

The book does indeed have between 200 and 250 pages.
The selected picture is "towards the front of the book".
The book does have a dust jacket.

Do go on...

Thank you Stephen. I would like to draw this experiment to a close.

At the end of this post I have included a link to page that has my final thoughts on the image chosen. It also has a sketch on it to. Stephen, I would like you to describe the picture you are looking at BEFORE you click on the link. Could you also provide us with the name of the book you have chosen, the number of pages and the page number that the picture is on so that it can be checked by anyone who has the same book. Stephen would I also be right in thinking that this book belongs to another person in your household?

Before Stephen responds I would ask that several people follow the link and save the picture so that it cannot be changed after he has told us what he is looking at. Follow the link, right click on the image and select 'Save as'. If some of you could confirm that you have done this I would be very grateful.

Stephen, can you also reiterate and confirm that during the time we have been conducting this experiment I have not emailed you or sent you a Private Message asking for any information, We have not spoken on the telephone or in person and that I have not asked you any questions about the book over any web based chat tools.

Thank you all for following the experiment, and thank you to Stephen for indulging in this with me.

Oh, could people please refrain from commenting on the image or the text on the linked page until Stephen has responded. Just a note of confirmation if you have saved the image would be lovely. Thank you.

Stephen, please wait until some people have responded to say that they have saved the image.

There isn't. I am relying on his integrity, also that is why I have asked him for the name of the book and the page number.

I have not clicked on the link.
No one has saved the image, so I will not give anything away yet.

The image is one of Stonehenge. The horizon on the image is positioned at about a quarter of the way from the bottom. The sky is blue and relatively cloudless. The grass in the foreground is green. Stonehenge, for anyone who doesn't know, is a mysterious circle of giant stones, and can be found on Salisbury Plain in England.

For anyone who wishes to check, the image is on page 31 of a book called "the Unexplained" (because I thought it would be fitting) by Dr. Karl P.N. Shuker.

Partial hit, Dancer. The book belonged to my brother until he decided he no longer wanted it a few months ago. I said that I would like to have it. However, he no longer lives here, and the book isn't his anymore. Make of that what you will.

All true.

Off to click the link now.
Can't wait.

After being pestered to demonstrate my extraordinary gift of psychic ability, and being inspired by the recent spurt of activity on remote viewing and the like, I would also like to offer up a little piece.



Salsadancer: Now that you've made your predictions, may I ask, did you use paranormal talents to view into Stephen's abode, or was this more of a mentalism effect? Or something else?

Although this thread began almost a year ago, I for one, am most impressed. How are you at cat burgling salsa dancer?

I can tell the rest of the Café is in stunned silence.

I think stephen long must have fainted, if anyone knows him give him a ring he may have banged his head....

Well, now that Stephen has revealed the image I can now see what was trying to come through now.

I have a clip of me doing this on air with a radio presenter for anyone that still has doubts about my 'gift'.

Well done salsa.

However, I am more surprised that Stonehenge was NOT the first thing you saw when coming up with your sketch.

hmmm.

Jim, did you think that the first time you saw the sketch or did you think it after you had read the answer? It is easy to make sense of a bunch of shapes when you know what they are. My mind was thinking Easter Island for a long time.
