City of People # 17: Psychic and Paranormal
These psychics and/or paranormals are offering their services at Alun-Alun Bandung (Bandung City Square). They claim that they can heal different kinds of diseases, tell you what kind of person you are, and what career and life path is best for you according to their reading of your "primbon" (the unseen forces of the cosmos).
Although paranormal and psychic phenomena and practices are considered unscientific (especially by Western scientifi traditions), there have been verifiable proof that they can and do heal diseases, foretell with relatively high degree of accuracy of a distant future event, find a missing person or thing, hold or move the rain, and even tell a person's personality and life path whom the practitioner has never met. Some paranormals here even claim that they can help you with your love life - making someone that you love loves you back and be faithful to you all his/her life.
