Did Uri Geller really have psychic powers? Well the CIS may have thought so.
The CIA has released the first of 13 million top-secret documents following a freedom of information act. Among many interesting revelations which were hidden in them, such as UFO sightings, psychic experiments, and others, the intelligence organization had taken the Israeli psychic to the Stanford Research Institute in 1973. Geller was already famous all over the world by this point. Uri Geller was also tested between 1972 to 1976 including the Naval Surface Warfare Center, NASA’s Goodard Space Laboratory and a nuclear laboratory.
The scientists placed Geller in a sealed room covered by monitors. In one test Uri Geller was asked to use his psychic power to draw what he thought the given word was.

The CIA documents say: “His almost immediate response was that he saw a ‘cylinder with noise coming out of it’.
“His drawing to correspond with it was a drum, along with a number of cylindrical-looking objects.”
The scientists said of Geller that he had “proven his supernatural perception unequivocally.”
Uri Geller said the CIA went on to successfully use his telepathic skills to force the Russians to sign the nuclear arms reduction treaty.
Geller added that he refused to do several other “dark” experiments, and only would do positive tasks. A 2013 document claimed that when the CIA asked Uri Geller to use his powers to stop pigs’ beating hearts he refused the request. He worried that he will be requested to do this on a human.
Some of the other tasks requested of Geller were to levitate plates, and to recreate a drawing drawn by researchers in a separate, closed room. Geller, having never seen the drawings, was able to reproduce them to a high degree of accuracy.
The documents include hundreds of thousands of pages of intelligence analysis, and other scientific studies. There are also documents from the “Star Gate” program, which dealt with mental powers and extrasensory perception.
