When freelance CIA investigator Dr Andrija Puharich met Uri Geller in 1971, the young Israeli psychic had one driving ambition.
And it had nothing to do with spies or science.
‘I want to be famous,’ insisted Uri, who had grown up in poverty in the backstreets of Tel Aviv.
‘I want to be successful. If you want to work with me, you will have to deal with my need for fame and fortune.’
Contacts in the Israeli military told Puharich that this ‘unabashed egomaniac’ was not worth his trouble.
Uri had been a celebrity in his home country, after prime minister Golda Meir joked on the radio about his talent for predicting the future.
But his fame was already on the wane and he was reduced to bending spoons and reading minds on stage in tawdry nightclubs.
‘You know, we have a word for a kid like Uri — putz, a punk,’ one friend told Puharich. ‘He really is insufferable.’
But early tests left Puharich convinced there was far more to the young man than his outrageous ego.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4146428/Did-UFO-Uri-Geller-magical-powers.html
