Robert Winston Mercy’s hopes to render a stimulating and thought provoking presentation in the search for insightful psychic knowledge in a two part presentation: Dermatoglyphics and Motion Pictures Inspire Korean War Service.

Mr. Mercy

Part I: Dermatoglyphics

Robert’s contribution of Dermatoglyphics [Derma = Skin, & Glyphics = Writing], which is an advanced form of medically recognized Palmistry and how it can reveal the heretofore hidden psychic  attributes, via the analysis of an individuals’ fingerprints, certain palm patterns and the general shape of the hand. These findings could indicate why an individual is motivated to pursue the art of Dowsing in the first place. Mr. Mercy’s personal experience and discoveries of certain relevant dermatoglyphic markings will be shared.   Come learn a brief history of Palmistry, dating back to ancient China, the Golden Age of Greece, the Renaissance of Europe and its eventual evolution into the field of modern medicine.


Part II: Motion Pictures Inspire Korean War Service

In the Korean War, Robert commanded an all Korean and quite expendable assault platoon.  A brief history on Korea’s historical engagements with the West, which started in the eighteenth century and render a prognostication on what the future might hold. Robert’s book, I Hear No Bugles, will be available for sale to the audience. During the war, Robert served as a platoon sergeant in the army’s 24th Infantry Division.   He was in the Corps circa 1946, which was five years prior to the war.


What is Dermatoglyphics?
Dermatoglyphic is the interpretative reading and analysis of fingerprint patterns, configurations and dermal ridges in the palms of the hand in the study of human genetics. Also taken into consideration is the overall shape and color of the hand, as well as the myriad intricacies and condition of the nails.

What can be gleaned from such interpretations?
An analysis can tell what illnesses and/or diseases we are genetically susceptible to, i.e., blood disorders, Alzheimer’s and syndromes such as Trisomy 13, Sickle cell, Rubella [German measles] and coronary dysfunction. For example a Dr. Toshifura, as written in the Journal of American Medicine, established with a 89% accuracy those patients who would suffer a coronary incident in their lifetime. An analysis can also establish a psychological profile as to sexuality, temperament, potentials for addiction and even traits not yet manifested, as in the case of children and young adults.

How can dermatoglyphic analysis help us?
A thorough analysis can alert a person to manifesting physical and/or psychological dispositions and thus serve as a form of preventive medicine, which allows the person to alter some aspect of their lifestyle and, if serious enough, advise them as to what professional help is available. On the more positive side insights given can also lead a person to heretofore latent talents which, if explored, could open an entirely new horizon to their existence. So it can really make a difference in our lives. I’ve had the good fortune to have been called in by parents shortly after a mother had delivered her baby in order to see what could be gleaned from the infant’s hand that might give alert to a genetic weakness, which could manifest later in life,

What are Robert Winston Mercy’s credentials as a Dermatoglyphicist?
Robert has conducted an Independent seven year study at New York’s Medical Library and worked as an associate to Dr, Harry Punjwani of New Jersey in Bio-feedback and dream analysis. Has been an active practitioner of Derma analysis for the past forty years and conducted thousand of hand analysis, appeared on the New York lecture circuit and made numerous guest appearances on radio talk-shows to discuss not only the analytical use of Dermatoglyphics, but its potential application in investigative police work. Being a published author [I Hear No Bugles] he would like now to use his analysis skills to interpret the hands of serial killers, murderers in general and those inclined to child molestation. The benefits of such a study for police work, Criminologist and society at large could prove of value beyond all measure. Robert has had communications with members of congress and various police departments, including the FBI on this issue.
