Eric Pfeiffer of NRO has an interesting piece on Michael Schiavos attorney, George Felos. Apparently he can do more than move juries with his advocacy skills, but he believes he has the ability to mentally control aircraft as well. Pfeiffer checked out Mr. Felos book (Litigation as Spiritual Practice) and observed the following passage:

Felos claims to have used his mental powers to cause a plane he was passenger on to nearly crash. By simply asking himself, "I wonder what it would be like to die right now?" the plane's autopilot program mysteriously ceased to function and the plane descended into free fall. Felos then observed, "At that instant a clear, distinctly independent and slightly stern voice said to me, 'Be careful what you think. You are more powerful than you realize.' In quick succession I was startled, humbled and blessed by God's admonishment."

Mr. Felos also claimed to use his spiritual advocacy skills to communicate with mentally disabled Estelle Browning. He wrote:

As Mrs. Browning lay motionless before my gaze, I suddenly heard a loud, deep moan and scream and wondered if the nursing home personnel heard it and would respond to the unfortunate resident. In the next moment, as this cry of pain and torment continued, I realized it was Mrs. Browning.

I felt the midsection of my body open and noticed a strange quality to the light in the room. I sensed her soul in agony. As she screamed I heard her say, in confusion, "Why am I still here ... Why am I here?" My soul touched hers and in some way I communicated that she was still locked in her body. I promised I would do everything in my power to gain the release her soul cried for. With that, the screaming immediately stopped. I felt like I was back in my head again, the room resumed its normal appearance, and Mrs. Browning, as she had throughout this experience, lay silent.

I was out of work with the flu last week, and I spent my days lying on my couch trying to follow the Schiavo story through cable news. I was frequently awoken from my codeine-induced naps by that man ranting and raving about the Schindlers and Congressional members being fanatics. I see nothing fanatical about trying to keep a mentally disabled woman alive. But claiming you can control airplanes through your mind power is just crazy.

Maybe Felos does have the ability to endanger planes with his mind and to communicate with unconscious people telepathically. And maybe the rest of us should take Felos' pronouncements on the Terri Schiavo case with a large grain of salt. [Read More]
