Vagueness and generalisation

Some people suggest psychic readings consist solely of vague and generalised statements that could mean almost anything. I am surprised how often this misleading theory is offered by people who should know better, including supposedly well-informed sceptics.

The 'vagueness' theory only holds good for the most trite and superficial aspects of the psychic industry. A perfect (and perfectly inane) example would be the horoscopes printed by newspapers which (a) cannot find anything better to print and (b) are content to treat their readers as superstitious idiots.

In all other cases, this theory does not hold water. Many cold readers give their clients very specific information, such as names, dates and detailed descriptions of people and places.

Later on this book, you will hear about a psychic who told a client the exact name of her brother - without guesswork, clues or prior information. In another case, a psychic accurately described the rather unusual job a client did 26 years previously. In both cases, I was the 'psychic' involved. How was I able to produce such 'amazingly' specific information? All will be revealed later.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
