Spoon bending is excellent proof of how the true nature of every "thing" around you, that you regard as "solid" or "real" in some way - your experience through the mediation of the five physical senses - can be "bent" or "shaped" in any way you wish, so that your experience reflects it.
To investigate this further, we need to take a very close look at the structure of the spoon, which could of course be any apparently "solid" object, going deeper and deeper until we can "drill" down in to the structure of the spoon no further.
First then we look at the surface of the spoon and note that it is composed of shiny metal.
Magnifying still further, we begin to see the atoms of the metal.
Magnifying still further we see beyond nucleus of the atom.
Magnifying still further still we see electrons orbiting the nucleus of the atom.
Magnifying still further to look inside the nucleus we see protons and neutrons.
Magnifying still further we see protons and neutrons include up and down quarks.
Magnifying still further we see that the quarks are held in place by gluons.
But when we achieve maximum magnification we see - absolutely nothing - space.
So when we look at the spoon enough, we see the atoms which the object appears to be made of comprises nothing but empty space.
In fact, as we will see next, none of the above atomic particles has any tangible form of existence anyway - so matter, and therefore all material science, is really meaningless.
What we have just observed through progressive magnification is only observed through the very process of observation itself, otherwise it would not exist at all.
Now the reason why most people fail to bend a spoon, is exactly the same reason that most people fail in consciously creating their own experience - they believe the spoon is real, solid, and therefore cannot be bent in opposition to the laws of "physics".
It is this belief alone that, just like using the power of the find to create your own experience generally that makes it seem impossible.
Thus the astral light is androgyne, for equilibrium is the resultant of two opposing forces eternally reacting upon each other. The result of this is LIFE.

Well I'm no expert but by reading the article, what I gathered from it was that the mind would not necessarily exert a force but remove the stigma of matter from the object, thereby making it completely malleable. I'm completely open to theories....that's why I posted it here....
