Its just common magic tricks, nothing spiratual at all...
Not spiritual...telekinetic. There is a difference.
There are lots of people who can "explain it" but can't duplicate it. Instead, show us a video of you duplicating David Blaine's card
teleportations and levitation ability; not in carefully controlled conditions on stage but on the sidewalks of an American or European city, in broad
daylight, in front of live witnesses that you have just met for the very first time.
This challenge goes out to anyone who thinks they can duplicate Blaine's "tricks" without a telekinetic Gift.
And the deafening silence in the forum made it possible to hear a pin drop.

Its not telekinesis, its bollocks. Its a TRICK.
What you see on tv is two different things spliced togetgher.
First off blaine will do the balducci move (or whatever its called), and when done properlly it looks damn surprising, and thats where you get the
crowd reaction pictures from. Then, later on, either in a studio, or in the same place when no-ones around, blaine gets lifted up on a harness, and
the 'crowd' behind him is just stooges dressed the same as the previous audience (You never see him levitate and the audience in front of him, so
that you can see their faces, now do you?). The two shots are athen edited together. You see blaine talk to them, get ready, then the scene cuts to
the new shot of him being raised on a harness, and then the shot cuts to the crowds reaction to his balducci move, which is what they saw.
When you stand there and watch him fly several feet into the air before your very eyes, then, only then
are you qualified to say its somethign
else. Till then please defer to the magicains and professionals who KNOW how he did it.
His feeling ill afterwards is just an act, because it makes people think that he actually did something profound and it effected him physically.
The card teleports are also just tricks, nothing more. The window one is the most easy and straight forward. You force the spectator to choose a
specific card, and then you quickly turn and throw the pack at a window, behind which you already planted a duplicate card. You never see a
card end up on the other side of that window now do you?
He's a MAGICIAN, and a damn fine one with some of his tricks, and a major con artist with others. He does not know telekinesis. He is not calling on
the power of various otherworldy spirits or entities. THEY ARE ALL TRICKS.
When a magician shows you a shuffled pack, egts you to deal it into 4 piles, and shows you that the top of each pile is an ace, do you think its a
trick? Or whenever you see a magician do pretty much anything you can;t explain outright, do you just think that hes doing something
