Israeli illusionist Uri Geller in an interview with the British tabloid The Sun said that he had seen with his own eyes the wreckage of a UFO that was shown to him at NASA. According to Geller, he was admitted to the classified files of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States during the period of his cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency.
The illusionist claims that the wreckage of the alien ship was shown to him by the father of the American space program, Wernher von Braun, to whom he was introduced by a mutual friend, American astronaut Edgar Mitchell.
In an interview, Geller suggests that aliens study humans before making contact.
“I think they are preparing for a contact that will go like Spielberg’s scenario, and it will be impressive. They will probably land on the White House lawn or somewhere else. All of our alien encounter fantasy films will come true.” he said.
Geller also suggested that the first contact will take place in the next 60-75 years.
In confirmation that aliens are observing humans, he recalled the recently released Pentagon videos, filmed by US Air Force pilots, in which unidentified flying objects can be seen moving at incredible speed. According to the illusionist, this footage suggests that the aliens have technologies that are superior to ours, and they themselves do not want to harm people.
“I think the Pentagon knows a lot more than it tells us,” Geller concluded.
Uri Geller was born on December 20, 1946 in Tel Aviv. His parents are from Austria-Hungary. Uri’s mother, as stated in his official biography, was a distant relative of Sigmund Freud. Uri got his name in honor of his cousin, who was hit and killed by a bus shortly before his birth.
According to a family legend, when Uri was five years old, he was digging on the lawn near the house of their Arab neighbors, and suddenly – a bright ray of light, breaking through the clouds, threw him into the grass. The boy ran to his mother to tell about what had happened – she calmed him down, sat him down at the table and gave him a bowl of soup; the child grabbed a metal spoon – the spoon began to bend and bend until it broke. Uri’s mother told more than once how the boy’s fantastic abilities developed. At the same time, she emphasized every time that the child could have inherited the talent of a sorcerer from Sigmund Freud.
The family later moved to Cyprus, where Uri graduated from high school. Then he returned to Israel, and in the 80s told reporters that during the Six Day War he served in the airborne forces and was even wounded. However, the injury did not prevent Uri Geller in 1968-69 from working as a photo model. In 1969, Geller began acting as a magician – first at children’s matinees, then in nightclubs – and soon every Israeli knew his name.
The peak of Uri Geller’s popularity was in the 70s, when TV viewers all over the world could already see his magic tricks. Geller’s arsenal was incredible: he moved objects with his gaze, found water with a willow twig, guessed thoughts at a distance, stopped or accelerated the clock and, of course, bent – to the delight of the audience – forks and spoons.
For many in those years the very word “psychic” was associated, first of all, with the name of Uri Geller. But even then skeptics called him a charlatan and a swindler, and to prove their words, they cited examples when Geller did not succeed in this or that “trick”.
In the 80s, Geller gave up frequent gigs and undertook to write articles and books. He settled in England and became a honorary member of many prestigious clubs. He drove an antique Cadillac decorated with curved cutlery. He does not hide the fact that he likes to be a star. He also likes to hang out with celebrities but whoever he really is, he is the personification of Success.
He is called a magician and psychic, a unique illusionist and a cheap magician, a genius and a charlatan. In the memory of many, Uri Geller is “the one who stopped Big Ben,” and such tricks were never dreamed of even by David Copperfield. He promised to revive Ariel Sharon and protect Israel from terrorist missiles. Many believe in his omnipotence.
For the past 30 years, Geller has lived in England or Cyprus, although he often appeared in Israel, writes books and moves in high society. To himself, he says that he earned enough money to be left alone now.
Uri Geller plans to open his own museum in Jaffa. The museum will exhibit the famous “caddilac” covered with two thousand spoons bent by Geller, a giant spoon 18 meters long, gifts from celebrities, etc.
