While he is no psychic and can’t read minds, Andrew can demonstrate how beliefs influence our perception of reality. We’re wired to believe what we see, even when confronted with the impossible, but with scam rates being higher than ever, how can we be more vigilant with ourselves when it comes to assessing what’s real and what is in fact, delusion.
