This is a little bit from Derren Brown’s most excellent book Tricks of the Mind. His debunking of Homeopathy is brilliant and it’s an all round great read and I’m not even getting a kick-back.
This from LBC Radio’s ‘psychic hour’…
CALLER: I have a house with a piano. Often at night, we’ll suddenly hear a note being played – High C – coming from the piano. We do have a lot of cats,* but it’s not any of them as the lid is down. Do you know what it could be?
MEDIUM: Well, there’s a couple of things it could be. A friend of mine is a piano tuner and he says that often, especially when the weather is getting hot, as it is at the moment, the internal workings of the piano can expand a little and cause a string here and there to pull at it’s hammer, which will result in a note being sounded. Apparently that can happen.
CALLER (unconvinced): Right, yeah, maybe…
MEDIUM: Or, you see, the High C note is a very resonant note energy-wise and will vibrate the chakras in the house, causing the fairies to sing. So it could be that too.
CALLER (delighted): Wow… yes, that sounds right. I mean perhaps it could be the strings expanding – sounds a bit far-fetched – but great, thank you, yes, I think you’re right. Thank you so much.
*No surprise there.
Some people shouldn’t be allowed out on their own.
