Salvador Dalí’s immense talent was noticed at an early age.




By the time Dalí had reached the age of 12 his parents had already become well aware of his rising talent as an artist and sent him to drawing school.

Instead of focusing on his studies, though, he played the fool and embraced his eccentricity.

After his first year, his father organized a private exhibition showcasing Dalí’s charcoal drawings in their home.

At age 15 he exhibited his works for the first time publicly at the Municipal Theater in Figueres.

Organized psychical research can be dated, symbolically, from a conversation between Henry Sidgwick and his student F.W.H. Myers, one moonlit night in Cambridge about 1870, over the need to validate religious belief through the methods of empirical science," wrote historians Seymour H. Mauskopf and Michael R. McVaugh in their study of psi researchThe Elusive Science.

The more formal scientific scrutiny of anomalous phenomena marked its starting point in 1882 when the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) was founded in London by scientists including Myers and pioneering psychologist and philosopher William James—and included a remarkable array of clinical luminaries, such as physicist Oliver Lodge, Sigmund Freud (a member of both the British and American chapters), economist and ethical philosopher Henry Sidgwick, and Arthur Balfour, Britain's prime minister from 1902 to 1905.
