    Many thanks for your responses. Yithian I assume that by "seemingly miraculous man" you do not believe in psychic ability - I am inclined to agree with you if that's the case but have an open mind . I tell the story as it was and exactly how the subsequent events panned out. I offer no explanation and am sure that a lot wont believe - I personally don't care either way. Could merely have been coincidence( and I think coincidences occur much more frequently than we think) but then I fail to understand how he could tell me that I had just removed a sidecar from a bike - and no I didn't turn up at the meeting on an old bike which had witness marks where a sidecar had been! The guy describes himself as a psychic and lives locally. I presume he is still around but I was told he has been prosecuted (unrelated to psychic abilities!) so I would not like to "recommend" him - he clearly didn't see that one coming! No the meeting was not a religious or esoteric group - I am neither religious or esoteric.

    No, I mean simply that from your account he would seem to be psychic. I - we - don't have enough from your post to pass judgement on that appearance, though it's certainly interesting and I thank you for posting it and the additional details.

    I've always considered the observer effect a very interesting subject to research in regard to how we can apply the physics theory to our current understanding of scientific measurement and controlled performance of psychical ability and other supernatural manifestations, both Human (externalised Qi manifestations) and extra-terrestrial/spiritualistic in origin. Kenneth Grant's excellent concept of the Tangential Tantrum (see Hecate's Fountain, Foreward, SKOOB BOOKS 1992) really deserves to be examined further from an approach of considering symbiosis with the observer effect and its far reaching possibilities and suggestions.

    A fortune teller in Japan has been ordered to pay $850,000 (£691,000) in damages to a female client she had forced into prostitution, reports say.

    The victim was reportedly made to believe that she was in debt to the clairvoyant and could repay that debt only by becoming a sex worker.

    Tokyo's District Court heard the woman was sometimes forced to live on the equivalent of $1 a day.

    The fortune teller reportedly pocketed nearly 90m yen ($785,000; £639,000).

    The victim started consulting with the clairvoyant in 2008, when she was troubled by issues such as a divorce, and became dependent on her advice, local media reported.

    In 2011, she was forced to move into an apartment the fortune teller owned, and ordered to work as a prostitute to pay rent and other costs.

    "The fortune teller fuelled the woman's fears by leading her to believe that she owed her a lot of money," judge Sotaro Tomuro said.

    The woman handed over almost all of her income, the court heard.

    Back in the 1970's our neighbor died and his wife inherited a large sum of money. She decided to see a psychic who convinced the wife that the money was cursed and bad things would happen to her and children if they spent the money. In order to lift the curse the wife was to withdraw all of the money and give the cash to the psychic for a blessing. She never saw the money or the psychic again. It was very sad.
