There is NO evidence that any of Criss fans and witnesses are ' in on it ' to the extent that ANY of the high levitations and other seemingly
impossible feats are affected. That is the trrick of the deniers, they talk about certain events that have NOTHING to do with the type of events that
we are discussing.
If Criss performs some events with audience participation or whatever, that is one thing. The high levitations and such are NOT the subject of ANY
controversy at all; NO evidence has been shown that would lead an intelligent person to assume that Criss uses ANY props in those PARTICULAR
The silly ' any event that uses some aspects disqualifies Criss from ALL apsects ' is just nonsensical. The Luxor event and the golf course event,
among MANY others , do not have any element of witness involveement, other than the many independent video's taken and voluntarily sent in to Criss
The naysayers are also forgetting that Criss does virtually inexplicable events all the time, as proven by the many video's of teleportation,
material decomposition / recomposition , etc. Did anyone see the video taken in the cigar shop at the Luxor with the Wonder Years star, Jason Hervey?
Hervey is a cigar lover and with a crowd watching, and Criss touching nothing but a deck of cards as he asks another guy to pick a card.
The guy selects the 7 of clubs and it stays in the deck. Criss had the manager of the cigar store get a random box of cigars from a locked display
case and has Jason select a random cigar of his choice. He unwraps it and the cigar guy cuts the tip off, and Jason lights it. Criss NEVER touches the
cigar. Criss has the other guy look thru the deck at each card one by one and the 7 of clubs is gone!
Naturally, Criss takes the cigar from Jason in full view of the crowd and cuts it open to reveal the folded up 7 of clubs inside the lit cigar that
Jason was smoking!! He was of course flabbergasted as it would have been IMPOSSIBLE for the event to have been staged without massive participation
and life long silence from the actors. Nonsense!!
Criss was able to MAKE that cigar get into that handrolled cigar and it had to become folded in a certian way in order to do so. No human hand
folded that card, a fact that some deniers will howl over; their laughs will sound hollow in the nesr future when such realities are better
comprehended by the common man.
Also, in single shots with the tape rolling and no breaks, Criss, with open and bare hands, obvioulsy nothing in them, places his hands in front of
a mirror, and has strangers standing well away from the mirror simply take an object, like a cigar or money, and pass the items down into Criss'
hands which are almost flat on the mirror. the objects that are passed down into the image on the mirror are duplicated into Criss hands, including a
LIT cigar exactly like the one used, and the EXACT amount of money that a young woman used.
Each of these events qualifies in and of themselves as genuine examples, just like the Luxor and golf course events do, but attract less notice due
to the fact that most common observers will go on auto-think as soon as they see it and say " Hey, realluy neat..wonder how he does that". The
trouble is that most people will never stop and really wonder how it could be done and explore ALL possibilities and not exclude those that seem '
far out ', which is the habit of most people; it keeps them comfy and on an even keel as far as their understanding of reality goes.
Think about it : It is no small matter that events that challenge the very foundation on which many people comprehend their existence and realities
are so shocking to them; it is a major thing for many people to admit, even to themselves , that other human beings have powers or abilities that they
themselves could hardly grasp as being possible for them to do. If they accept that Criss can levitate with such ease and for such distances, then it
makes some personalities feel threatened and an auto atic defense mechanism steps in to prop and fluff the ego:
" Hrrmmph.If anyone could do such stuff, why I could !! Criss is no better than me, and if he can levitate , I can by golly!! Since I cannot, that
means that HE cannot either!! Simple Logic!! "
See why it is so hard to break that barrier? It threatens so many aspects of the psyche of the observers that for some it means an instant and
stubborn denial; the MEANING of acceptance would be too deep and personal and challenging for most. Most people are able to stay sane and on an even
keel in a very crazed and strange world by assuming certain parameters in life.
these parameters act to stabilize the mind and emotions and allow humans to go about their lives without shock and revelation distracting them from
the ri assigned and desired duties in life. When you see the looks on the faces of the bystanders in Criss and David's events, with shock and awe and
incredulity and even horror..you are seeing the result of the brain receiving input that collides with the parameters and thus sets off reactions that
are apparent and measurable.
Some people run away, actually in physical fear, adrenalin racing..others clasp their hands over their mouths to hide their jaws dropping..some
others just express profound amazment and wonder. But all of the witnesses to these events are a representative sample of the effects of diclosure, or
enlightenment on a mind bound by the common and mundane.
When Criss has a coin travel down his arm, under the skin, clearly visible, and cuts it out of his flesh to reveal it, the witnesses are revolted in
some cases, shocked for sure, but they still look and they still see: there is NO WAY that these events are staged and there is NO way that what we
are seeing is a result of video trickery and editing, no way. those people are real, and with effort and money could be tracked down, all of them,
I have NO doubt that the ONLY explanation for SOME of CRiss events, and you know which ones I mean, is the esoteric one and not the mundane one.
There can be NO logical explanation other than the apparent one due to the total lack of substantive evidence to the contrary!!
No one has presented a theory that has merit or any evidence whatsoever that would lend credence to the belief that Criss Angel uses props in some
of his events, the more spectacular ones.
