Mark Joramo had constructed an ingenious device–a cardboard box containing a suspended foil-wrapped index card under a small fan. Mark claimed he could flip the card using telekinesis–the ability to move physical objects with the power of the mind. In our controlled tests, we determined the foil card flipped about 50% of the time–what was expected to occur through chance. It seems that Mark may have been unconsciously causing the motion of the card with his breath or the movement of his hand near the box. Mark was disappointed and set off to try to determine what had gone wrong. We have not yet heard back from him.
