:A Journal of the Mystery of Uri Geller
By Andrija Puharich
Anchor Press / Doubleday
Cover slip
In 1971 Andrija Puharich met a talented young Israeli named Uri Geller, whose psychicabilities had already made him well known in his homeland. The next year Uri came toAmerica, where millions of people have since watched him bend keys, stop watches, andbreak metal rings, with no apparent physical pressure. So far no one has been able to explainsuccessfully how he does these things.But these remarkable talents are only the beginning of the story told in this book. Out of thefriendship between Dr. Puharich and Uri Geller grew one of the most extraordinaryadventures of a lifetime. Not long after their first meeting, according to Puharich, they werecontacted by "Spectra," a voice they believed to represent an extraterrestrial intelligencecalled "Hoova." This is Dr. Puharich's account of how he and Uri thus became the firstindividuals in modern history believed to have made extended contact with non-earthlybeings; how "Hoova" explained the source of Uri's psychic powers; and what they learnedabout the relationship between this intelligence and the inhabitants of earth.

I want to thank all of my friends mentioned in this book who know, beyond anything I couldexpress, how much they gave in love, loyalty, and dedication. I also include friends andenemies not specifically mentioned who helped to make me wiser and stronger. The tragedy of the death of Arigo, the great Brazilian healer, in 1971, awakened myconsciousness to become a seeker. The seeking brought me to Israel, where I met Uri Geller,about whom this book is written. After I was convinced that Uri's abilities were genuine, Iarranged to have him studied in the United States. Captain Edgar D. Mitchell, formerastronaut, undertook the management of the first institutional research on Uri, and withRussell Targ, Harold Puthoff, and Wilbur Franklin carried out the initial experiments atStanford Research Institute in late 1972.I especially acknowledge the loyalty and talent of my close circle of working associates. Wehave been together for many years preparing for the advent of Uri Geller. To Luis Cortes forhis brilliant medical research leadership in the work on Arigo in Brazil. To Melanie Toyofukufor her collaboration on research projects over the years and who was the first to welcome Uriin Europe when he left Israel. To Yasha Katz for his personal support of Uri in West Germanyand elsewhere. To Solveig Clark for her organizing work on our many research expeditionsand her deep devotion. To Werner Schmid for organizing Uri's public appearances, and hisvitality that carries us all along. To Byron and Maria Janis for their deep understanding andhelp in making it possible for Uri to demonstrate his paranormal powers in public. To JudySkutch for her leadership in keeping alive the institutional research on Uri.Ira Einhorn's imagination helped to formulate this book and to get it to the attention of publishers. Sharron McCann helped me through the agony of writing, typing, and editing themanuscript and served as a sounding board for many of the ideas and feelings herein. BillWhitehead's cool judgment and courage got the book published. My greatest debt is to Uri forgiving me the privilege of being his scribe.Andrija Puharich
In late 1970 I read a report written by an Israeli army officer about a young man in Israelnamed Uri Geller. The letter described Geller's telepathic powers and his ability to makeclock hands move without touching the clock. These alleged powers were so extraordinarythat I could not believe the report. However, when this officer subsequently sent samples of metal broken by Geller's mental powers, and when the laboratory reports stated that this kindof metal fracture had not been seen before, my interest grew. I went to Tel Aviv, Israel, onAugust 17, 1971, to meet Uri Geller. My research with him convinced me that he was one of the most unusual men in the world. Why I think he is so unusual is the subject of this book.2
I had suspected for a long time from my researches that man has been in communication withbeings not of this earth for thousands of years. This personal opinion comes from a closereading of the record of ancient religions and from my own observations and data. What is notclear is why such communication has been kept secret for so long.With the publication of this book, however, many of the cosmic secrets are now declassified.But the release of this knowledge in fact raises more questions than it answers.One of the first of these new questions is an important one: Why was Uri Geller selected to bethe ambassador for an advanced civilisation? why did I become the principal witness to thisambassadorship and the chief scribe of its gradually unfolding revelations? These interrelatedquestions will be developed throughout this book.My story involves three principal agents. The primary agent is not a single being, but acollegium of voices reaching man on earth. We have, in the beginning, the words of the Nine,who are directly related to man's concept of God. I shall develop the concept of the Nine inthe Introduction. The controllers of the universe operate under the direction of the Nine.Between the controllers and the untold numbers of planetary civilizations in the universe arethe messengers. It is the messengers who help to fulfill the destiny of creation by gentleaccentuation where and when they are needed. Some of these messengers take the form of spacecraft, which in modem parlance are called unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. Uri andI have been reached mostly by the latter type of messenger, whose names and functions arevaried. The intermediary between these messengers and earth people is Uri Geller. Thefunction of chief witness to these interactions has fallen upon me.If I am to get an attentive hearing, the reader should know that I have had many years of professional preparation and research experience in medicine, parapsychology, and laboratoryand field investigations. I have only one interest in writing this book. That is to bring topeople all over the world the facts about the existence of superior beings and what they wantto say to man today. What follows is true, but it is not the whole truth. There are many thingsthat my "editor in the sky" will not yet permit me to reveal. My editor on earth has advised meto delete material that could be considered too controversial or libelous. Events have beenomitted for political reasons where governments have been involved. There are delicatequestions concerning the relations between religions which have been avoided. In order to getthe basic message in print, and out to the people, many diplomatic gestures have had to bemade. Perhaps someday, depending on the response of the public, my editors will allow thewhole truth to be revealed.Many people are mentioned in this book for the roles they played in the reported events. Ihave been in touch with these principals in order to compare my text with their recollections. The text that follows represents the agreement reached between each principal (whom I couldreach) and myself. However, I want to make it clear that this does not mean that theseindividuals have necessarily endorsed the content or conclusions of this book. I stand alonewith respect to the reporting of all events, interpretations, and conclusions.
Once I realized I was involved in an event of immense importance, I began to retrace thoseincidents in my life which brought Uri and me together. The first of these concerns Dr. D. G. Vinod, a Hindu scholar and sage from Poona, India,whom I briefly met by chance in New York City in December 1951. Two months later, onFebruary 16, 1952, I had my first serious meeting with him. At that time he surprised me by3
