He then travels to New York and California to test psychokinetic superstars - and frauds - like Joe Nuzum, who claim to move objects using only their minds. Along the way, Braude also investigates the allegations of K.R., a policeman in Annapolis who believes he can transfer images from photographs onto other objects - including his own body - and Ted Serios, a deceased Chicago elevator operator who could make a variety of different images appear on Polaroid film. Ultimately, Braude considers his wife\'s surprisingly fruitful experiments with astrology, which she has used to guide professional soccer teams to the top of their leagues, as well as his own personal experiences with synchronicity - a phenomenon, he argues, that may need to be explained in terms of a refined, extensive, and dramatic form of psychokinesis.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"Katie, the gold-leaf lady -- Historical interlude -- Joe Nuzum: subject from hell -- Dennis Lee: subject in hell -- K.R., or who can you trust? -- The thoughtography of Ted Serios: a postscript -- The synchronicity confusion -- Postscript: some thoughts on astrology.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/3768884715<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Biography<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:genre<\/a> \"Case studies<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Parapsychological investigations : reflections, adventures, and cautionary tales<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"225979219<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/225979219#PublicationEvent\/chicago_university_of_chicago_press_2007<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3768884715#Agent\/university_of_chicago_press<\/a>> ; # University of Chicago Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:reviews<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/225979219#Review\/899802129<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/toc\/ecip074\/2006036517.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780226071527<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/225979219<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
