 Psychic Quiz #1-A
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. The "witch's cradle," (a large swing that holds one's body upright as it swings above the ground) that was traditionally used by witches to "visit the devil" has been found by laboratory test to actually induce trance.
2. An efficient method of problem-solving through hypnosis is "telescoping time" so a few minutes under hypnosis equals several hours or more of mental work.
3. There is one particular kind of tea preferred by tea leaf readers for its "readability."
4. A Catholic university actually taught a course on "Demonology" in an effort to find a way to "interpret" today's evil.
5. One theory psychic researchers have about what causes "deja vu" is that we've previously encountered the situation in a dream state.

#1-A ANSWERS

2. True. The researchers mentioned above found one particularly good hypnotic subject who telescoped an entire art course into a 30-minute session.
3. False. But we knew a tea leaf reader in Los Angeles, Mrs. Anne Gold, who used a mixture that was mainly "Constant Comment"-- which we thought might account for the delicious things she always saw in our future.
4. True. The teacher was Rev. Robert McNally of Fordham, who said we take the devil for granted and so we don't know what he really is.
5. True. Although you may not remember it, you had a precognitive dream previewing the event, so that when the real event occurs, it seems as if you're reliving it.

 Psychic Quiz #1-B
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

 Psychic Quiz #1-C
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. Cleve Backster's polygraph (lie-detector) experiments with plants indicated that plants are constantly attuned to all living things.
2. The world of legitimate physical science paid no serious attention to Cleve Backster's experiments measuring plant perception with the polygraph.
3. Cleve Backster actually coined the term "ESP" for the phenomenon of communication from plants to humans.
4. Although for many years scientists believed that a person's hypnotic suggestibility (how deeply and easily one can be hypnotized) couldn't be increased, biofeedback experiments showed it could be.
5. One study showed that everyone who had practiced any form of meditation for at least six months showed the same EEG pattern of high base-line brain waves even when not in meditation.

#1-C ANSWERS

1. False. Backster states: "There appear to be two...categories of perception...one...attuned to all things going on in its immediate environment...two, they can tune into something in a very selective manner." Thus, plants can attune to certain people, and tune out other influences.
2. False. Unless you consider mail from thousands of people working in the various fields of science to be "attention not worth mentioning."
3. False. He named it "primary perception."
4. True. Engstrom, London and Hart used auditory feedback signals to teach people to increase their alpha wave production and then found increased hypnotic suggestibility after training, as well.
5. True.

 Psychic Quiz #1-D
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. Research with rats has shown that a maze-running memory pattern stored in their cortex remained intact even after all but 90% of the cortex was removed.
2. Newborn kittens are blinded for life if blindfolded for two or three days just before their eyes open.
3. There is no truth to the notion that TM meditators age more slowly than the rest of the population.
4. No major insurance company has ever done any large-scale studies of the health of meditators.
5. Only those who "try" not to age by meditating can do so.

#1-D ANSWERS

1. True. Karl Lashley, a pioneer in neurophysiology, in attempting to discover the seat of memory in the brain taught rats to run a maze, then bit by bit removed 90% of their cortex, only to find that their memory of the maze was still intact.
2. False. Sorry, just trying to fool you--mid-70s research did show the first two or three days after their eyes open to be the critical period when the optic nerve matures; at that point seeing actually shapes inter-neuronal connections making sight possible.
3. False. Robert K. Wallace tested mind-body effects of TM on meditators and found them, as a group, significantly younger than the rest of the population. He tested near vision, blood pressure, and hearing acuity. An English backup study also showed each year of regular meditation took off one year of aging.
4. False. Blue Cross-Blue Shield in 1986 studied two thousand meditators in Iowa and found them much healthier than Americans as a whole in seventeen major areas of both mental and physical disease.
5. False. The meditators in the studies mentioned above had no thought of slowing aging. Meditation simply seems to remove barriers making youthful conditions manifest.

 Psychic Quiz #1-E
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. There is no documented case in the annals of parapsychology where dream information resulted in solving a legal dispute.
2. In the dream state, each person typically tends to have either very realistic dreams, or else highly symbolic ones.
3. Having trance visions of the future in church services was never common in mainstream Protestant churches--only in the services of charismatic sects like Spiritualism.
4. A growing body of evidence indicates that our lives are affected by physical and intellectual cycles of predictable lengths.
5. All the highest mystical experiences are markedly similar in their content. In heights of ecstasy each mystic hears, sees, feels, etc., much the same as every other.

#1-E ANSWERS

1. False. Dr. Louisa Rhine's files contain just such a case. A man received information as to the location of evidence from his dead father which settled a court dispute. See her book, "ESP in Life and Lab."
2. True. See "ESP in Life and Lab" by Louisa Rhine (Collier).
3. False. Famed Spiritualist J.S. Loveland's autobiography shows that late 19th century Protestant churches were rife with displays of trance states in services: speaking in tongues, foretelling the future, etc. Loveland left the Methodist ministry when he became fed up with all the mainstream Christian sects' claims that each of them possessed the only "true" trance state.
4. True. See "Science Digest," August 1973.
5. True. Perhaps the book that best describes this is the classic Cosmic Consciousness by Bucke.

 Psychic Quiz #1-F
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. According to the International Journal of Obesity, to significantly reduce weight gain, women need only walk three hours a week.
2. Although there seems to be truth to the claims that walking lengthens life and reduces osteoporosis, there is no hard evidence that it improves eyesight.
3. There has never been a study of retirees that uncovered any links between longevity and walking regularly.
4. Women over 65 burn significantly fewer calories--under all circumstances--than young women (average age 25).
5. No respectable swami would ever recommend the use of biofeedback to speed up yogi training.

#1-F ANSWERS

1. False. A research program tracked 44,000 women over 10 years and discovered that walking four or more hours a week reduced their risk of weight gain by 16%.
2. False. At the annual meeting in 1997 of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, it was announced that both those with and those without glaucoma reduced their eye pressure when they walked regularly.
3. False. "The New England Journal of Medicine" reported that in a 12-year study, retired men who walked over 2 miles a day lived longer than males who walked less than a half-mile a day. Only 23.8% of the 2-milers died during the study and 40.5% died among the 1/2-milers.
4. False. Women over 65 burned the same number of calories as young (average age 25) women when they ate 250-500 calorie meals. The over 65s burned 60 calories less when both groups ate 1000 calorie meals.
5. False. After a demonstration of biofeedback at the Menninger Clinic, Swami Rama said he believed that many years spent training yogis could be eliminated using biofeedback. (The Journal of Regression Therapy, APRT)

 Psychic Quiz #1-G
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. Some psychic researchers try to discourage cheating by never using well-known "psychics" in their tests.
2. Helping others may make us feel good, but there's no evidence that it makes us less prone to fatal diseases.

5. Even though you may have thought stress was the major factor at times when you've "caught" a cold, research shows it probably had only a slight effect.

#1-G ANSWERS

1. True. According to Jeffrey Mishlove in his classic, "Roots of Consciousness." Cheating has been known to happen when the reputation of a famous psychic was on the line. For the same reason, all participants, in fact, must be willing to agree to anonymity.
2. False. A study of 2,700 male volunteers for community work in Tecumseh, Michigan showed them two and a half times less likely to die from all causes of disease than their non-volunteering peers.
3. True. There is evidence that workers with a view of nature are more likely to have job satisfaction and report fewer medical complaints than viewless workers.
4. False. At Boeing Co. in Seattle one study shows that reported back injuries are more likely to be related to job satisfaction than to physical factors.

 Psychic Quiz #1-I
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

2. False. Braud and Schlitz of Mind Science Foundation in San Antonio did "transpersonal imagery" experiments in which one person created mental imagery to alternately relax or arouse a second person.

 Psychic Quiz #1-J
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. Eating dark-green, leafy vegetables (like spinach and kale) can increase your risk of blindness in later life.
2. Women who take vitamin C supplements for 10 years or more are more likely to develop early signs of cataracts.
3. A study of more than 800 Chesapeake Bay fishermen showed no difference in incidence of cataracts between those who used eye protection and those who did not.
4. Smokers are more than twice as likely to develop macular degeneration (loss of central vision leading to possible blindness).
5. Contact lens wearers can safely omit cleaning their lens cases because the real source of infections is the lenses themselves.

#1-J ANSWERS

1. False. Researchers at Harvard found that adults who ate dark-green, leafy vegetables had a 43% lower risk of macular degeneration which causes progressive loss of central vision and is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 55.
2. False. Research at Tufts University discovered that women who took vitamin C for 10 years or more were 77% less likely to develop early signs of cataracts. Paul Jacques, Sc.D., said his study had shown that it seems to help prevent cellular damage and maintain systems that clear cellular waste material. Vitamin C levels required daily for this purpose can be maintained with two glasses of orange juice, or two cups of fresh strawberries.
3. False. Chesapeake Bay fishermen who had spent years working on the water wearing eye protection were found to have three times fewer cataracts than those who didn't.
4. True. A Harvard Medical School study turned up this fact recently. They say the constriction of small blood vessels in the retina may be the culprit.
5. False. The lens case is just as likely to be a source of infection as anything else and it's estimated that a fourth of contact wearers neglect to clean the lens case.

 Psychic Quiz #1-K
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. The term "medium" is not one of the synonyms for "channeler."
2. The therapeutic use of massage began in about 140 B.C. when Asclepiades founded a successful school that taught a healing method in which massage was central.

4. Swedish massage was created by Swedenborg, the famous Scandinavian psychic.
5. Though massage accomplishes many wonderful purposes, it has never proved to be a substitute for sleep.

#1-K ANSWERS

1. False. In fact, even though channelers may not be aware of this fact, what they do was called (for at least a hundred years before Shirley McClain's books began repopularizing such things) "mediumship" rather than "channeling." The "channeler" can be referred to as a "medium" although "channeling" is just one of the many abilities that spirit guides bring to mediums.
2. False. There are written records that indicate massage was being used in China as long ago as 3000 B.C.
3. False. It was really a small honey bear that appeared at the numerous postharvest fairs held in rural Russia.

 Psychic Quiz #1-L
PSI-KICKS By Pat Chalfant

1. Research shows that patients undergoing hypnoanalgesia (hypnosis for pain control) do feel the pain but don't respond, according to Robert Becker and Howard Friedman.
2. The researchers mentioned above also found they could anesthetize frogs and salamanders with an electromagnet.
3. Relaxed attention to any mildly involving stimulus like movie and TV programs produces a hypnoid state in which the mind becomes particularly receptive to suggestion.
4. It is not true that the CIA ever funded research on electromagnetic mind control.
5. There is no evidence of a scientific nature to suggest that dogs and cats really have traveled thousands of miles to return to their family homes.

#1-L ANSWERS

1. False. According to the findings of psychiatrist Howard Friedman and Robert O. Becker, M.D., the brain can shut off pain by altering "at will" the direct-current potentials in the rest of the body so that they block the actual perception of pain.
2. True. By using a strong enough magnetic field oriented at right angles to the back-to-front current in the animals' heads, Becker and Friedman found they could anesthetize the animals as well magnetically as with chemicals.
3. True. This is also true, according to Dr. Robert Becker "...in light sleep, daydreams, or short periods of time spent waiting for some predetermined signal or action, such as a traffic light."
4. False. It is true, again according to Dr. Robert Becker, that the CIA did fund such mind control research as early as 1960, in fact. There were also funds allotted for adapting devices like the EEG to surveillance and interrogation and activating the human organism by remote electronic means."

3. False. A study showed that, after Chi Gong masters had treated a chemical with a normal nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum, the chemical's spectrum changed significantly, indicating electrochemical influences.
4. True. Dr. Patterson learned about acupuncture treatment to decrease narcotics for postoperative drug addicts from Chinese doctors, adapting it to treat drug addiction by using flat electrodes behind the ear.
