This chapter presents the case of a policeman who believed he could transfer images from photographs onto other objects simply by placing the photos on those objects. During the testing of the policeman, he claimed to have successfully transferred a photograph, but the observers could not see it. The policeman could not accept the possibility that this “phenomenon” was a creation of his own imagination. The chapter suggests that, in testing special abilities, it is important to remember that no source of evidence is infallible and that observation and testimony vary considerably in quality from one context to another.
