Forgot to mention, The Randi prize if I recall correctly is unwinnable. You only win if he can't duplicate you using whatever tricks and such he wants and he is also the sole judge of who wins. With enough prep time he can duplicate any psychic ability. This does not disprove the person who is trying to win though.

A number of years ago now, I carried out an experiment using a gramaphone turntable, about six small permenent magnets (square magnets from Trian Mk4 motors that powered OO locomotives) and a twelve inch diameter alluminium disk. The disk suspended from it's centre by cotton over the centre of the turntable, on that the six magnets placed evenly arround it's rim. The alluminium disk suspended at an inch or so claer or the magnets would revolve with the turntable due to the magnetic field influence of the six magnets even though alluminium is not directly influenced magneticly. I found out later that this is the principle used in electric meters to measure electricity usage in the home. you can see the small alluminium disk in the metre window, it revolves at the speed of the energy being used.

Could this be an explination of the revolving tinfoil, a strong permenent magnet under the table turned by an electric motor operated by a foot controled switch under the table?

Nice to beleive that it is genuin though.

The guy could have some kind of heat source directly under the table where the glass is. That's the first thing that came to mind for me. I'm sure if he put some kind of concentrated heat source directly under the glass the heat would cause the paper to move.

I can't do it and I've been trying ever since I saw this video.

Maybe my higherpower knows that if I could do this; I would be down at the

Indian Casino in front of a craps table, trying to make my fortune the easy way.

Maybe attitude, desire, willingness and greed are a determining factor in success.

Whatever it is, I would like to see more videos of the ATS members that claim to be able to make the little wheel move.

Just wanted to point out that this video was admittedly an illusion. The creator of the video explains it completely in the info section.

Oh boy... here is the transcript:


(...) I'm a bit hesitant to share the secrets behind my illusions because the last thing I want is for people to use them to make more fake telekinesis videos. But then again, not explaining how I did it could jeopardize the original purpose of urging people to be level-headed, specifically (and ironically) when it come to being skeptical. After weighing the two concerns, I have come to the conclusion that it's better to expose this information so that people can be aware of it, as opposed to hiding it so that others would have a harder time replicating videos similar to my own. But before I get into how I did it, I would like to clarify how I didn't do it.

In no way, shape, or form did I use the following:

-Magnets
-Heat/Convection currents
-Electronics (of any sort)
-Video Editing
-Static
-Strings
-My left hand (lol)
-Or anything else people "knew" I was using...

And because of this, every single one of the hard-headed skeptics who blatantly talked sh** about the video were just as "stupid", "ignorant", and "gullible" as the believers they labeled as such, and perhaps even more so because at least the believers had a video on their side (a relatively convincing one at that), where as the skeptics had nothing but this unfounded arrogance in themselves by thinking, without question, that they "just knew" it was fake AND HOW it was faked. Like I had said many times in the midst of these debates, I was in a unique position to know just how full of sh** these people really were. They all thought they were so smart lol.


I would now like to take this opportunity to expose the names and locations of the 2 most ignorant skeptics I have run across during this whole experiment.

Moving on, the trick was very simple. Both videos made use of the same gimmick, a trick table. That being said, however, still none of those things I listed above were used in this trick table. In the first video, a pin sized hole was drilled in both the surface of the table as well as the plastic bowl the set up was sitting on. From there, a person off camera was blowing into a tube that was connected to this hole (under the table) which cause the wheel to spin. The second video used this same principle, but in a more sophisticated fashion. The surface of the table is hollow, with two separate air channels going to two different pin holes. Two tubes could "plug in" to each hole on the hollowed legs, which were hidden by thin layer of laminate that could pop on and off. This is why you can't see the bottoms of the two front legs on the video when the wheel is spinning. And again, I used an "associate" to plug and unplug the tubes as well as to blow into them for a more convincing illusion.

Kinda sucks now that you know how it's done, huh?

In closing, the initial goal of the video was to urge a healthy sense of skepticism for believers when viewing such videos because they are just videos. They are suspect by nature; too foul play can be going on off camera. However, after fighting numerous skeptics as part of the role I needed to play, I was exposed to just how ignorant these skeptics could be. Even knowing that my video was fake, still...these people were so sure of themselves (sure of things they just couldn't be sure of given what they had seen) that they were borderline delusional. Seriously. I began getting caught up in the debates because *I knew* they didn't know this video was fake, simply because there is no way to know for sure based on what the video allowed people to see. And yet, I couldn't expose them for the "frauds" they were because I was too busy being the fraud I was lmao. (Of course, I have been saying all along that this video isn't proof and shouldn't be seen as proof)
