10 Questions for Uri Geller
by Doug Yurchey
The following questions were posed to Uri Geller on 1/24/04.
These responses are not quotes. The answers are paraphrased as I wrote them down as fast as I could:
1. I'm not sure if SPECTRA is something you talk about. Is there anything you can tell us about these aliens who gave you your psychic abilities?
I have seen UFOs in the Israeli Desert with Andrija Puharich. I could also feel their presence. They were not a threat, but a good force. They made contact through voices in my head. The main thing was that they were something positive.
2. Are they still in contact with you?
No. Not totally. I still feel that I'm been watched. But, we're not really in touch anymore.
3. Do you have any idea when the PUBLIC, or Earth people in general, will be contacted by extraterrestrials?
I believe that this will happen in the next 50 years.
4. Are you a believer in a Roswell spaceship crash and grey aliens from Zeta Reticuli?
Something certainly happened there. But, does the government have alien bodies on ice? I highly doubt that. I have heard of these dragons that go back to the time of Nazi Germany. (the reptilians?) There is a chance that these extraterrestrials, or whatever you want to call them, are real.
5. Do you believe in Atlantis? Was there a lost technology in the past that was even described in the Bible?
6. Then you feel there were great wars, possibly atomic, that destroyed this ancient civilization?
7. Speaking of your abilities, are these skills as strong as ever? Have they diminished over time?
No. They have gotten even stronger over time. Like anything that you practice, you get better at it and improve.
8. Have you any recent projects that you are excited about?
Yes. I am a not a healer, but I do try to help those in need by being POSITIVE. We have a project called Hole in the Wall, along with Paul Newman, where we give assistance to Israeli and Palestine children.
9. Why is it that no one has ever done a film of your life?
They have! It was called 'Mindbender.' Terence Stamp was in it and it was directed by Ken Russell. A young, Israeli actor played me. But, it wasn't very good.
10. How do you think your friend, Michael Jackson, will do in court?
I am a skilled hypnotist and was doing that long before I performed in public. I did hypnotize Michael some days ago to cure an urge for peanut butter. While he was deeply hypnotized, I asked him about the charges. His response was NO. I am convinced of his innocence; that he never molested children.

When I first thought of the possibility of this interview, I e-mailed Uri and asked him about it. We are far from friends; this was the first time in 28 years that we had spoken...although we had e-mailed each other a few times recently. Days passed. I was sure he was too busy and would decline. Then, surprisingly, he agreed and gave me his home phone #.
I was touched that at the end...he asked about me; my art; my daughter... The last thing he said was 'find something to love in this world.' I will always remember those words.

About Uri Geller
He first became aware of his unusual powers when he was five. One day, during a meal, his spoon curled up in his hand and broke, although he had applied no physical pressure to it. His parents were somewhat shocked and Uri did not mention the incident to anyone else at that time. He developed these powers in school by demonstrating them to pupils. His mother thought he inherited them from Sigmund Freud.
When he was eleven, he went to live in Cyprus, where he remained until he was seventeen. He then returned to Israel, served as a paratrooper in the Israel army and fought in the Six-Day War of 1967 during which he was wounded in action.
From 1968 to 1969 Uri worked as a model, he was photographed for many different advertisements.
In 1969 he began to demonstrate his powers of telepathy and psychokinesis to small audiences. By the end of 1971, however, his was a household name throughout Israel thanks to his numerous stage appearances. He was given a plug by the then Prime Minister, Golda Meir. When asked on a national radio programme what she predicted for the future of Israel, she replied, "Don't ask me - ask Uri Geller!"
