[Time Traveling Prediction/Prophecy] Psychic: Season 1, Episode 3.

We have seen it on TV and in the movies but what is “Time Traveling”? According to Professor Brian Cox, he believes in the “Twin Paradox” experiment. Prof. Cox further elaborate that “if you go fast your clock runs slow relative to people who are still. As you approach the speed of light your clock runs so slow that you could come back 10,000 years in the future.”

Imagine twins, one stays on Earth (Twin A) while the other (Twin B) boards a spaceship and flies off at relativistic speeds. Compared with Twin A’s timeframe, Twin B’s timeframe will slow. If time is running slower for Twin B, then he/she will return to Earth where a lot more time has passed and Twin A has aged significantly more than Twin B. The mechanism behind this is “time dilation” and it has a stronger effect as you travel closer and closer to the speed of light. (Source)

With that scientific explanation, we can conclude that Time Traveling is possible… but only in theory and not Interstellar-ish. Unless you can travel at the speed of light, which is of course impossible because it takes infinite energy to accelerate an infinite mass.

In Episode 3, Alvin Terence successfully ‘Prophesied’ or (with a less supernatural theme) ‘Predicted’ random words selected by the participants. The participants were instructed to visualize pages of a dictionary flipping and then select a random word from one of the imaginary pages. Lastly, the random word was highlighted or circled. After revealing the choice of random word(s), Alvin Terence directs the attention to an envelope held by the participant at the very beginning of the experiment. Inside the envelope reveals an IKEA photo frame with their choice of word.

So how was it done? Here is one of the techniques use in Episode 3: Pinstriping Pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus (an image or a sound) which is perceived as significant. Common examples of this are seeing images of animals or faces in clouds. Take a look at the cloud picture below. Do you think the cloud looks like the shape of a horse? (Source)

About 97% of people will agree that image will look like a horse. Maybe because it was suggested above or MAYBE because of schema (in psychology and cognitive science, a schema describes an organized pattern of thought or behavior that organizes categories of information and the relationships among them). (Source)

Pareidolia combined with Pinstriping (line art) can produce ambiguous words only imaginable by creative minds. Were you able to see the words written clearly on the photo frame or was it your mind telling you what you saw?

[Object Premonition] Psychic: Season 1, Episode 2.

Pictures are images of the past. It seal memories and helps us to remember many good emotions. Just like any objects, psychics leverage on those energy embed into such objects to see the past and future. This is known as ‘Premonition’.

‘Premonition’ a word origin from Latin meaning ‘acquiring knowledge’. Premonition is an ability to see the past and the future that is commonly done by connecting with the object/person by touch. Premonition is often confused with Telepathy. Check out the snippet of Charmed, a TV series related to supernatural powers, to see how premonition seems like for a psychic.

In Episode 2, Alvin Terence demonstrated ‘Premonition’ through a straw. The participates were told to imagine drawing something on a sand with the straw and then instructed to pass the straw back to Alvin Terence for a premonition reading.

Under test conditions, Alvin Terence drew what he sensed out FIRST before the participant did. Thus, making the psychic demonstration breathtaking and impossible.

So how was it done? Here is one of the techniques use in Episode 2. Ideomotor Effect.

Ideomotor Effect. It is a psychological phenomenon wherein a subject makes motions unconsciously. It is a scientific explanation for the Ouija Board (aka Spirit Board) and Spiritual Dowsing. This works well on participants if they are able to visualize clearly what they have drawn as the ideomotor effect will appear bigger and clearer to Alvin Terence, a trainer practitioner of the art of Psychological Illusions.

[Love Connection] Psychic: Season 1, Episode 1.

Ever had an unexplainable experience or heard of a mysterious connection between a love one or a friend? If you did, you could have just experienced clairvoyance.

‘Clairvoyance’ is a word origin from French meaning ‘clear vision’, it is used to describe an event where a person is able to gain information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses. Clairvoyance is also known as Extrasensory perception (ESP), a term adopted by Duke University psychologist ,Dr. J. B. Rhine, who was also the first to pioneer psychical research.

In the first part of Episode 1, Alvin Terence challenged himself to bring clairvoyance to another level by allowing the ‘clairvoyance’ experience to take place between 2 persons that are related to one another. This was extremely difficult and not common for fake psychics to execute such an ability. However with the right elements in place, Alvin Terence, was able to successfully allow a handful of lucky participants to experience “clairvoyance” between each other.

In the second half of Episode 1, Alvin Terence added a twist to his clairvoyance demonstration by revealing some of the most inner personal thoughts of a woman — their first kisser. To add a little spice to it, Alvin Terence revealed the personality of the guy who gave them their first kiss. All this was possible through a “physical psychic connection” — the kiss.

So how was it done? Here is one of the techniques use in Episode 1: Subliminal Messages.

Subliminal Messages. Now you probably heard about this before especially if you are into advertising. Big brands such as Coke and Lipton have used such techniques to boost sales. A recent review of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies shows that subliminal stimuli activate specific regions of the brain despite participants being unaware (Brooks et al, NeuroImage (2008)).

In Part 1 of Episode 1, you can clearly see the word “MUSIC” clearly printed on the t-shirt of one participants. Alvin Terence clearly leverage on that opportunity to create a visual stimuli. At other times in Episode 1, audio stimuli was subtly induced to the participants through backmasking technique (or talking backwards). This was common in the 60’s music industry. A famous poet, Aleister Crowley, was also known to encourage his followers to “practise speaking backwards”.

Could there really be a ‘brain signal’ that was sent out or is Alvin Terence really psychic? We will leave this mystery to you.
