Better than magic.
The stomach operation is the public’s stock impression of psychic surgery. I suppose the more difficult techniques come in play when the psychic surgeon performs eye surgery.
It is done while the patient is seated. The psychic surgeon inserts his forefinger into the patient’s eye socket, takes the eyeball out, washes it in a glass of alcohol, and then puts it back in the socket.
Just think about it. If a psychic were to pull tumor and eyeballs from his patient, he must be palming the “excised parts” all along. But pray tell me, how do you palm pieces of meat, entrails, or blood capsules all at once without being caught? Palming four or five coins, or a large billiard ball, or even a deck of cards must be child’s play compared to palming meat and chopped-up body parts.
The towel, cotton swabs, and the bowl of water on the operating table no doubt play a central role not only in the introduction of the “tumors” and “diseased organs” into the body of the patient for later extraction but also in getting rid of the evidence of the dirty work. If the faith healer is using his own operating table, the bed sheets and the mattress could also be tools to facilitate the fake surgery.
