Edgar Cayce for forty-three years of his adult life demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space.
Throughout the 1930s and ’40s, Edgar Cayce was a well-known figure, renowned for his “healing abilities” as well as his prophecies. DECODING THE PAST examines the transcriptions of Cayce’s readings to see which of his predictions have come true, which remain unfulfilled, and which may yet be realized. Countless individuals have been touched by the life work of this man who was raised a simple farm boy and yet became one of the most versatile and credible psychics the world has ever known.
Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give sound advice on how they should live their lives? Or the bending of spoons using your mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins doesn’t think so, and feels it is his duty to expose those areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, yet manage to hold the nation under their spell. He will take on the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of the movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and testing that have failed to produce conclusive results.
The documentary was first broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK, styled as a loose successor to Dawkins' documentary of the previous year, The Root of All Evil?
This footage is the interview with UK mentalist and illusionist Derren Brown.
