Best PK Video?

Great psychokineses video – if it’s genuine – here as part of this story. (Scroll down)

It’s a follow up to this:

This video must rank up there with the one of the famous Russian woman who moves matchsticks on a table etc.

The difference is that her film was under lab conditions and this one so far has no authentication or evidence and could well be fake.

Interesting though and for anyone with time to spare, the hundreds of comments of life after death experiences are worth a read.

On second thoughts maybe this should be classed as poltergeist phenomena rather than PK unless we accept that the 'person' doing the paranormal spoon movement, is dead!

Thanks for the story.
The links didn't work for me when I clicked on them. I had to copy the link address. Dunno why. Anyway, I put them here with a tiny-URL in case someone else has the same problem.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the same video discussed in this thread, http://www.skeptiko-forum.com/threads/a-geist-who-polternd.2033/

My own opinion, the video is suspicious. Possibly the woman had some genuine experiences, but I tend to think that at best the video is an attempt at re-creating the appearance, rather than an actual event.

Thanks Typoz.
You're correct - sorry I should have done a search first to have found this very useful thread.
Talking of threads, it looks like one of those was involved in making this clip!
Why, I wonder, is the genuine phenomena and UFOs too, so camera shy?

Well, there could be a practical explanation. There are a whole bunch of videos I found on the youtube page, one showed a coin which was jiggling about and then seemed to fly across the room. But the thing was, it was positioned right in the centre of the frame, implying that the photographer could predict when something was about to happen, and get the camera ready.

I suspect these things are not so predictable - if a vase suddenly flies across the room, the very suddenness is a key part of the phenomenon, which means the camera is unlikely to be ready. Of course in public locations there may be CCTV running all the time, but this is unlikely to be the case inside someone's home.

UFOs are a different matter. It's not something I study much these days.
