The clip of Uri Geller backing out of performing his schtick on the Carson Show is not to be missed. Smile

What do you think was the social purpose of these "psychics"?

Good question, I'll have to think about it. Do you have any thoughts?

I gotta go back and look at my Paulo Freire material, but it seems to me that it is about sending people into meaningless metaphysical thought & activities. Of course, not all metaphysical thought is meaningless, but this type obviously is.

In general, I like to think of "The Cube" movie trilogy when I think of these types of techniques, as this movie really showed, metaphorically, how society is setup with a myriad of traps built-in. This seems to me to be just another set of traps that keeps people occupied in meaningless pursuits.

I pulled this relevent sentent from some of my Freire notes...

WHEN MINDS ARE ON THE VERGE OF RECOVERING CRITICAL TRANSITIVE CONSCIOUSNESS, MEDIA INPUTS DELIBERATELY PUSH PEOPLE'S PERCEPTION OFF TRACK BACK INTO SEMI-INTRANSITIVE MAGICAL CONSCIOUSNESS...

I think there is a lot of truth in that. We should also recognize the dialectical counter effect of magical thinking which is just as detrimental to society, that is the ultra orthodox skepticism of radical materialism put forward by individuals like Bertrand Russel or Richard Dawkins.

There have been many warnings throughout the history of culture regarding the dangers of runaway scientism or creating a society that is governed and directed solely and exclusively by pure rationalism.

Quote :
Scientism is a term used, usually pejoratively, to refer to belief in the universal applicability of the scientific method and approach, and the view that empirical science constitutes the most authoritative worldview or most valuable part of human learning to the exclusion of other viewpoints. The term frequently implies a critique of the more extreme expressions of logical positivism and has been used by social scientists such as Friedrich Hayek, philosophers of science such as Karl Popper, and philosophers such as Hilary Putnam[6] to describe the dogmatic endorsement of scientific methodology and the reduction of all knowledge to only that which is measurable.

Ah ha... I didn't see this dialectic between radical materialism and magical thinking. This is obviously deliberate... interesting.
