9781571741837: The PK Man: A True Story of Mind Over Matter

So begins Jeffrey Mishlove's The PK Man, the true and strange story of Ted Owens, whose claims of powerful psychokinetic abilities given to him by "Space Intelligences" were too bizarre and extreme for many to believe. When these claims were ignored or challenged, he purportedly used his powers to produce earthquakes, civil unrest, UFO sightings, strange weather events, and other powerful phenomena. Owens even threatened to down aircraft to garner attention.

Was there any truth to Owens' abilities, or was he a fraud with a knack for picking the times and places of catastrophes? Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, a respected parapsychologist and host of the popular public television program Thinking Allowed, analyzes correspondence, interviews, newspaper reports, and remarkable life of "the world's greatest psychic," as Owens claimed to be. Whether Owens was a prodigious liar and dangerous con-man, or a true but unbalanced master who used his incredible powers primarily for petty acts of revenge, many questions remain, and the implications for the rest of us are staggering.

From the Author:

The PK Man is an adventure and research project in which I was engaged for over 10 years, studying a man named Ted Owens. He was a most unusual man, whose powers were of shamanistic proportions. Everything that I present in this book, unbelievable, as it may seem, did actually occur and I have the documentation to prove it.

The story began in 1976; Owens sent a letter to Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff, two parapsychologists at the Stanford Research Institute. His letter stated he would end the drought that was then plaguing California. He said he would make it rain, snow, sleet and hail. There would be blackouts, and UFO sightings. Within three days all of these things happened.

Owens was a Speaker at the London Parascience Conference held at the University of London, he claimed that he was an agent of the UFOs. He was their Ambassador and he had come to Earth to perform miraculous feats to end the droughts. To do wonderful things for people on Earth, he even called himself PK Man, meaning the “Psychokinesis Man,” the man who had power of mind over matter.

Later, Ted Owens showed me his files, as I looked through the many documents illustrating instances where he'd produced a wide variety of phenomena, I found a letter from Dr. Max Fogel, the Director of Education for MENSA, an organization for people with high IQ's. The letter stated that in 1973 Owens promised Vogel he would produce a UFO sighting within a 100mile radius of Norfolk, Virginia. A UFO did appear witnessed by a policeman. I asked Ted Owens if he would produce a similar demonstration for me. Could he make a UFO appear and be seen by reliable witnesses? He told me could make a UFO appear in front of hundreds of reliable witnesses. It'll be well attested. The story of that successful demonstration is one of the many that I present in The PK Man.

From the Inside Flap:

"One evening late in December 1985, Ted Owens phoned Jeffrey Mishlove to warn him in an angry voice that the US Governement must cancel the next space shuttle flight. 'This is the most important call you will ever receive,' Owens said. 'The S.I.'s [Space Intellegences] really mean business.' They will destroy the shuttle, it's up to you to prevent it. A month later, on January 28, 1986, Mishlove was 'shaken to my bones' when the challenger space shuttle exploded, killing its seven crew members, including thirty-seven year old teacher Christa McAuliffe. 'I realize that I had been ignoring Owens too long,' Mishlove writes in this remarkable story." So begins Jeffrey Mishlove's "The PK Man," the true and strange story of Ted Owens, whose claims of powerful psychokinetic abilities given to him by "Space Intelligences" were too bizarre and extreme for many to believe. When these claims were ignored or challenged he purportedly used his powers to produce earthquakes, civil unrest, UFO sightings, strange weather events, and other powerful phenomena. Was there any truth to Owens' abilities, or was he a fraud with a knack for picking the times and places of catatrophes? Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., a respected parapsychologist and host of the popular public television program Thinking Allowed, analyzes correspondence, interviews, newspaper reports, and testimonies of observers to probe the troubling nature and remarkable life of "the world's greatest psychic," as Owens claimed to be. Whether Owens was a prodigious liar and dangerous con-man, or a true but unbalanced master who used his incredible powers primarily for petty acts of revenge, many questions remain, and the implications for the rest of us are staggering.
