Richard Wiseman on the Psychology of Magic from TAM 6 PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by Michael Blanford   
In an effort to increase the video resources we offer online free of charge, the James Randi Educational Foundation is posting digital video lectures and sessions from previous Amaz!ng Meetings and other events on randi.org. Check back often to see the latest video content.

This video features Richard Wiseman at The Amaz!ng Meeting 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada from 2008. Professor Wiseman discusses the psychology of magic, his investigation of Sai Baba, the "Colour Changing Card Trick" YouTube sensation, and his book Quirkology: How We Discover Big Truths in Small Things. The video also features a lesson in "psychic" spoon-bending from Wiseman and magician Teller of Penn & Teller. Watch the record-breaking group spoon-bend as over 800 members of the audience test their skill.

Definitely a memorable lecture and spoon-bending experience! Just wish I had a bit more hair on the back of my head since the videographer seemed to maintain a wide frame especially at lower left. Of course, with Randi right in front of me, I was in the best of company. smilies/cheesy.gif

Anyone has a transcript?

I am so amazed by this video! I would like to translate it to Croatian and Serbian but I have difficulties hearing all the words. Is there a transcript of this video anywhere? Can someone contribute?
I am having a website about atheism and skepticism, and I find and translate videos that I find useful for my visitors. This video is great and I would like to translate it for those who don't understand English. If anyone can help please write to info@ateizam.org

Thanks.
