For warrantless wiretap proponents, a question: is the government psychic? (See below)?

psychic government

You claim that the government isn't listening to conversations that aren't about terrorism.

How does the government know, before it listens in on your phone call, what the call is going to be about? Crystal ball? Tarot cards? Dionne Warwick?
dez: And how do they hear those key words and phrases if they aren't listening?
coragryph: Exactly my point. People who claim that the government somehow only listens to conversations where terrorist acts are being contemplated or discussed are delusional. They know these conversations are taking place to begin with because, as Bush admitted, they are RANDOMLY spying on American citizens without a warrant.

Is there any legal precedent for using a psychic to obtain a search warrant for private property?

psychic search

I am working on a hypothetical where a search warrant was obtained to search a house, private property, of drugs, by using the prediction of a psychic that has a 99% success rate. After the warrant was obtained, the drugs were seized. The question is whether the owners 4th amendment rights were violated and is the evidence was illegally seized. I was wondering if there were any court cases at the local or federal level that are loosely along these lines.

Is it true that the US military spent millions of dollars on remote viewing?

psychic spies

Remote viewing is like psychic spying as I understand it. I just heard this and have a hard time believing that even in a society as superstitious as the United States that the government would be stupid enough to spend money on this kind of malarkey and balderdash.

How to Be Psychic

How To Be Psychic

I had an interesting experience recently in being "psychic" and perhaps it can add to your influential power.

First, let me say that whenever I do a "psychic" experiment I'm always ready to be wrong, and it happens at times. What I've found is that people will completely forget the times you missed in a reading and over emphasize the times you got a "hit". It's just one of the well known facts of psychic cold reading.

Okay, that said, here if what transpired.

I was speaking to a physical trainer about hypnosis and after some rapport building and resolving her curiosity about hypnosis I said "Could I do an experiment with you?"

Me: "Think of your birthday. Don't tell me, just think of it. Repeat it again and again in your mind. Is it 1987?"

Her: "That's close." she said "It's 1978."[The truth is I was guessing her age at 28 and it subtracted the dates wrong! Keep in mind for her it was a hit!]

Me: I paused thinking... "Okay, you had birthday recently. Last month?"

Her: "Yes".

Me: Okay, the date will be harder. Is it the 28th?

Her: No. It's the 13th. How did you do that?

Me: Well, I'll practice with people. Because you don't know until you test it and I'm willing to be wrong. For example I'll go up to a store clerk and ask "Do you know someone named Marcia?" [I paused] No, wait. It's Maria, isn't it? [I leaned forward and raised my eye brows]

Her: I do know someone named Maria. I've been thinking about her recently too.

Me: ...and she's married isn't she?

Her: Yes, she got married.

Me: ...and that was when you [I braught my hands together and then seperated them symbolizing a split.]

Her: [Jaw dropping] How did you know!!! [Giving me a high five.]

She explained how Maria's husband felt threatened with his new brides single friends and forced the split.

Okay, a good portion of that as guessing and trusting my intuition but keep in mind that I was wrong more than right.

So, you'll ask, how did I do that?

A deep understanding of cold reading skills, basic observation, and good guessing.

First, in spite of my bad math I assumed she was about 28. She still considered the reversed digits 87 and 78 "close".

How did I know she had a birthday last month? I didn't. It was a good guess. Had I missed it completely I would have stopped right there and it would have faded from her memory.

But I was right on the month. I had a one in twelve chance of getting it right and I used my best guess. So I pressed on to guess the date and missed. Before I guessed the date I prefaced it by saying "This will be a lot harder." making any mistake more excusable. That was a good thing because I got it wrong.

My guessing of her friends name Maria was, in fact, about me talking to a store clerk. And I already know that female names beginning with M-A-R are very common. The girl also had a New York accent and looked Italian so a catholic name would get me even closer.

The realization of the split between her and Maria comes from my understanding of how many female relationships work out. First, the woman I was talking with seemed single, no ring on her hand. Most women her age and in her peer group will be married by that age. Also, it's very common that when new romances start (and marriges) old girl-girl relationships take a back seat and often fall to the way side. I phrased that understanding (using my hand gestures) in such a way that she could fill in her own meaning.

Now, had any of my guessing been wrong. No problem. I shrug it off as if it was an interesting experiment.

Anyway, If you're interested in being able to do this process yourself. I've included "The Black Book of Cold Reading" as one of the special bonuses in "Perfected Mind Control".
