Clouds dissapear naturally in short periods of time in the situations you people have been talking about. This has been explained by a lot of people
in this thread, but so many more are just not listening.
I own a set of CD's from the magician Kenton Knepper, call 'Wonder Words'. It has a track on it entitled 'Cloud Busting' in which he explains
this process as a magic trick. He explains choosing a cloud from the exact conditions the OP speaks of and then telling an observer that he will
'bust' it, telling them to keep looking at it and to watch as it disappears. Sure enough a fewminutes later the observer will run up to him amazed
that this cloud actually disappeared. It really makes peole believe in the magician and as such is an excellent effect.
It is however just a 'trick'. It's something that wouldnaturally occur 'labelled' as a wonderous feat perfomed by the magician themselves.
'Labelling' is an extremely powerful technique.
My apologies to Kenton and any resident magicians here for speaking about the contents of another magicians works. But I feel it adds to the
discussion at hand.
It is my opinion that this is entirely a natural occurance (clouds going away by themselves) that people have 'labelled' to themselves that it
issomething they are doing,which makes them believe in it far stronger. If you tell a guy to look at a cloud as specified and watch it disappear then
they may reply at the end with 'cool'. If you tell a man that by thinking about it he can 'bust' a cloud as specified, and that the man can do it
too,the man will likely reply with 'OMG COOL!'.
It's simply a matter of labelling. Seeing something coolis great, doing it yourself is even better. But when you're not actually responsiblefor
anything at all and end up attributing a natural occurence as an incredible phenomina to someone or yourself, then you're going to believe it
wholeheartedly, and it is unlikely that you will be convinced otherwise.
This, in my most humble opinion, is simply clouds disappearing naturally that people are convincing themselves is down to them. This I will continue
to believe untill someone can provide video evidence of 'busting' a whole selection of clouds in an order as determined by an independant
observer,and then recreating anumber of them to, once again as specified by an independant observer.
Untill then I will continue with my understanding of this as I hope I have clearly explained above. I hope this has helped some peoples understanding
