Alright people here's the thing ... I need everything that you got related to the abilty to fly ( or levitate ) . I want to make a little research on that and I have no where to start , so if can , please share with me what you know about the topic .

Thanks in advance !

By the way ... leave the Criss Angel and David Blane thing out of this unless if is to prove that is for real !

Exactly ... that's I come to ask for assistence . People here have the knowledge about this matter and they can help find books or whatever else even share their past experiences . You don't get that at google and if you don't have anything to contribute just [MOD EDIT] alright ?

but humans can't fly and it's unrealistic to think that way.......i have a solution though......ride an airplain or if your rich buy a jetpack

but I've always thought there's something to Douglas Adam's theory:

"The knack of flying is learning to throw yourself at the ground and miss"

I've often wondered if we're not stuck to this planet simply because we've been conditioned to believe that gravity exists.

I saw David Copperfield fly once, but I hear the illusion cost 3/4 of a million dollars to pull off.

Now, I know you said stay away from the magic stuff but i just have to say, if David Copperfield has to spend money like that on just an illusion, I really don't think the rest of us are going to be getting off the ground anytime soon.

Still, I like to think of the part of the book called, "All I really needed to know I learned in Kindergarten." Where the author, Robert Fulgum, talks about this very thing. He too agrees that humans can't fly but has no doubt that, in some garage in some small town there lives a human being, scooping down super vitemins, chasing them with power drinks and flapping his arms faster and faster

Love and light,

Well I'll give you the post your looking for

Levitation is thought to be a form of Telekinesis. Eastern monks have been said to perform it. It involves manipulation of the body's energies. But I personally can't vouch for it's authenticity.

Ok maybe not the post your looking for.. but it's a start

Its actually not that far fetched.

Its been known that if you form "Zero-point energy" within an object, it has an adverse reaction to gravity, while retaining its mass properties.

The end effect is the object is quite simply 'flung' from the surface of the earth, until gravity acts upon it again. (After the zero-point energy ceases).

Zero point energy is created by intersecting wave-lengths. The intersecting wavelengths cancel each other out at the center, leaving no wave-form whatsoever. (Yet, because of the laws of energy, the energy is still there.)
Energy is there, but wave-forms arent, hence the name, zero-point energy.

My understanding of it, is that the zero-point energy screws with the orbital path of electrons. How that affects its gravitational pull, I'm not exactly sure, but I have hunches. (Namely the laws of gravity need to be lightly revised).

Whats the point? Well, the human brain sends out waveforms in order to controll the human body. So its not suprising if the human brain can send a certain frequency in two directions, cancelling each other out in the center of the body, causing the body to levetate. Its all quite mathematical, but our brains just arent self aware enough to figure out how to create those interfering frequencies precisely enough.

The complete Douglas Adams Theory of Flight.

The key is to throw yourself at the gound and miss. You have to have someone distract you at the last second, and not care that it's going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground. This is very important, ONCE YOU MISS THE GROUND DO NOT THINK ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU CAN'T BE FLYING. Once you do, gravity will notice you immediately and say "Hey! You can't do that!!" and you'll go crashing back to the ground.

I was just thinking of the same quote. Heh. I love that book. Especailly the one of how they killed off god, by proving he exists.

posted on Jan, 4 2006 @ 04:55 AM
And then went on to prove that black was white and got killed at the next Zebra Crossing. *laugh* Goota love the Babel Fish. Proof that God exists.
God what great books.

When I first watched David Copperfield in the flying illusion it sent shivers down my spine and almost brought a tear to my eye. The reason being that the way he was flying is exactly how I fly when I dream and then the music and everything else added just makes it fantastic. I also heard that part of his research into doing the illusion involved interviewing hundreds of people and asking them how they fly when they dream.

I'm pretty sure I saw the string coming out of his back just now. I do love Copperfield, though. He owns Blane anyday.

Sheesh people let's go already. Keep in mind though, only one Christie Brinkley to go around.

On a serious note, I have heard accounts of yogic flying - levitation through manipulation of prana, chi, whatever you want to call it. Also the feats of Padre Pio - although bilocation looks more like it's like astral travel of some sort, don't know if that counts.

Well thanks for the comments ( not all of them ) . Some of the things were very interesting although that David Copperfield movie was quite lame in my opinon . None the less , good stuff overall . I think that the best reply was the one regarding leviatition using your ki . Regarding the Douglas Adams Theory of Flight , that sounds too me like something to stimulate suicidal acts

I guess we can always use one of this

I used to skydive frequently - skydiving can feel like flying at times, but you try to stay aware of the ground rushing up to say hi. If you're really interested in flying, find a respectable dropzone nearby and have a few jumps you'll get a sense of what it would be like, and have a heck of a lot of fun.

If you google for "yogic flying" and you'll get a kergillion pages that talk about it.

Try thinking of it as vision rather than flying. A bird's eye view on what's below. Good luck.

Everything about the abilty to fly !
fanatic i have bought the self levitation dvd of criss angel and serioslyill tell
you the secret there are no strings,fake camera tricks or any thing like that
here is how he fly's ok read this well.

1.there i a long cut in the pants he where's the cut is from the waste to half of the caf that is between the knee and the anckel and the cut is held together magnets so that the hole i unable to be seen ok. the magnets run from the side of each slit of the pants.

2. there are also magnets in his shoes where the anckel is look at the video his anckels are always stuck togethere

3.when he is ready to preform he slides his leg out in front of him where the hole is and places his foot on a bench,legde or whatever and when he is ready to "levitate" he just lifts himself up and when he is doen he puts his leg back in the pants.and thats it.

this is the real levitation trick that is in his masterminds dvd vol2 so trry it out and enjoy is you got a question contact me in my email

Maybe someone could invent 0 Gravity Tunnels we could use instead of highways to fly around in...with hand controls where we could get jets of air from the sides or from behind us to give us a push in the right direction when we need it!
