Famed "mentalist" Uri Geller
has his own homepage. Not only that, but he has his own domain at
and he has his own "glossy magazine" called Encounters.
Geller is famous for
millions of people who would swear by Geller's authenticity as a psychic. A man named James Randi, a
former magician who has dedicated his life to a Houdini-esque hunt for
magicians and showmen claiming to be supernatural, exposed Geller for what
he is on national TV, during a Tonight Show appearance by Geller.
Randi made sure that Geller and his people never went near the various
spoons and keys (which Geller claimed he could bend with his mental powers),
all at the request of Johnny Carson, himself a former magician and noted
skeptic. Not surprisingly, Geller claimed that his powers were not
feeling right, that his "energies" were not powerful enough for a demonstration.
That marked the beginning of the end for Geller's very public persona.

on the page. The Kit comes with:
- a book
- a crystal
- an audio tape
- something called a "meditation
The book comes with such interesting
