Psychic Sally Dies Onstage

Posted by Henry Paterson | May 20, 2014 17

Metaphorically speaking.

As a stage psychic, Sally Morgan is apparently in the habit of connecting people with the loved ones who have passed on. Old habits die hard, and can be embarrassing.


 One aspect of the show is that audience members can submit photographs of dead loved ones, in the hope that Sally will select theirs, and give a psychic reading from it. Sally pulled out of a box on stage one of these pictures. She held the picture up to the camera and it was projected on the large screen behind her. The picture was of a middle-aged woman and by the clothes she was wearing and the quality of the image, I guessed it was taken some time in the 1990s. Sally immediately began to get communications from beyond the grave from a man holding a baby named Annabel……or was it Becky. Noticing that no one in the audience was responding, Sally asked the person who submitted the photo to stand up. A rather small chunky woman at the centre of the hall stood up and Sally once again began to get messages from the afterlife. She was informed that this man and baby were somehow linked to the lady in the picture. However the woman in the audience (who was now also projected behind Sally) disagreed and started to look increasingly confused….

Sally then became in direct contact with the woman in the photo who began to tell her that there was a lot of confusion around her death and that she felt it was very very quick. She later went on to say that the day Wednesday has a specific link to her death and that she either died on a Wednesday or was taken ill that day. As the woman in the audience was not responding to any thing Sally was saying, she decided to ask how the woman in the photo was related to her. It turns out the woman in the audience got the whole concept of submitting a picture of someone you wanted to talk to from the afterlife completely wrong – and for some unknown reason submitted a younger picture of herself.


Time and again these predators are proven frauds, fakes, liars and thieves yet people are still desperate to flock to them for… what? Answers, hope, self delusion?

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    Who say this “communication” is a sure thing, who say it can be repeated over and over and for each time done perfect? Im not defending this Sally, never heard about her before. Just saying for sake of being, not just critical, but also open minded, the balance there in, this might not work as proper science wants it to. Just having ONE example of a failed reading doest dis-prove anything, just like science would say about one successful reading would, as far as proof go, goes for nothing. IF, i say if, Sally really could get messages, who to say, she like any artist would do it perfect every time, who to say she couldnt get confused, get mixed signals, have a bad day, perhaps being somewhat corrupted by ego, etc?! =)

    The panhandling and con-artistry of cold reading is pretty well documented and easily replicated as a social interaction between performer and audience. There is a long and confirmed history of this social practice as entertainment at best, calculated manipulation of the gullible at worst.

    While you’re welcome to defend the practice, you should bear in mind that the weight of evidence has fallen and that it is no stretch to deem this practice as one of entertainment akin to stage magic.

  • Curt Johnson

    There is no nothing in my text that backs up your claim that im “defending Sally”… There is every proof in the world for both “yes” and “no” reg. this subject. My take is you are too busy being intellectual, hence you miss whats right under your nose! =)

  • There cannot, by definition, be proof for both yes and no.

  • Curt Johnson

    ..oh, there can…quantum science has already proven its not as easy as “black or white”: as any observer affect the outcome in many quant experiments, you´ve probably heard of this already. =) . How conscioussnes affects micro particles, its all very interesting =) / peace

  • Henry

    Quantum discusses things existing in potential contradictory states, as waveforms that counteract each other until some other influence resolves the contradiction and one wave form collapses and the other becomes the “reality.” It does not say both exist at the same time, only both potentials. Going Schrodinger here.

  • Curt Johnson

    Btw, did she literally died on stage or was that a symbolic text? English aint my mother language you see/

  • Henry

    It was metaphorical. Because she pretends to speak to the dead, and utterly failed to demonstrate that ability she “died” on stage, as in she failed to perform.

  • Curt Johnson

    “definitions” are ooold, they dont necessarily work from todays age and forward, compared to how they used to work 200 years ago.

  • Henry

    Give me an example of something you can prove is both true and false at the same time.

    You are actually quite wrong. People make choices to ignore definitions, but that does not invalidate them, it only demonstrates the ignorance of those people.

  • Burgonet

    I said you were welcome to defend the practice, not that you were. But if you were going to defend the practice, just bear in mind how much ground the subject has been covered.

    And if the ‘yes’ camp is going to pitch a tent, what honest arguments can be made that are evidence-based?

  • Rameus

    Associative case studies have been done, but not falsification science under the scientific method. You cannot throw out studies like they were magic bible verses or incantations to protect you. Know the difference between predictive studies and falsification hierarchy reduction and which is used for community acceptance and which is not. The latter is real science, while the former is propaganda. Cold reading exists. That does not provide any sort of basis for a conclusion which you are pseudo-scientifically foisting here.

  • Burgonet

    Conversely you can’t adopt the rhetoric of the scientific method to legitimise religious belief, nor dismiss science that does not suit your own personal conclusions as ‘propaganda’. Any suggestion or inference that I’m ‘incanting’ as if I’m a devotee of the Dear Leader of Big Science just because I’ve the audacity to suggest con-artistry when it comes to psychics is kind of laughable.

    No more on my part needs to be said, nor will it. I’ll let my thoughts speak from beyond the death of this thread.

  • Henry

    What you seem to be effectively saying here is that we cannot, or have not proven these psychic abilities do not exist, and there is no burden of proof on that. Otherwise you are arguing that everything exists until proven otherwise and I would challenge you to prove that a specific thing does not exist.

  • ZASKARclf

    This article was awesome! Sadly though, I doubt this incident will put a dent in Sally’s income stream.

  • Kati Jean

    I’ve never even heard of her!?!

  • RotorRob

    There are true mysterios out there. These charlatans are not one of them. Folks who believe in them on the other hand…
