Assuming the people in the village are being honest...and this is a leap of faith...then...
This video is quite a gem and it also states that other things occur even when they go to other locations (such as church). I am absolutely on the
fence about this but am slightly leaning towards the real side. If he is acting then I am absolutely impressed as his initial reactions appear to be
The natural human reaction towards falling or being moved suddenly in an unexpected direction is to spread all of the limbs as quickly as possible.
This essentially allows one to redistribute their body weight in order to redistribute the center of gravity. This is a known fact and I will
demonstrate it with a simple example (please feel free to discuss if you disagree!). Think about it this way...try standing on one foot with your
hands at your sides (difficult huh?). If you attempt the same feat with your arms spread at 90 degree angles then this becomes much easier. This
process effectively redistributes your center of gravity away from the point of imbalance.
Now if one is predicting a fall or sudden change in direction due to impact then the reaction is nearly opposite to what we get when we are surprised.
Just before impact (or before emulating impact) you will brace and draw your limbs inward. This is a primal instinct in most animals which serves to
protect our limbs and core from damage. Examples of this include tensing up before a car crash or simply tripping and falling on the pavement. When
you hit the pavement do you normally faceplant? No, your arms retreat to the center of your body in order to protect the head and torso.
MY POINT IS THIS: If you watch the boy's reaction in this video you see his limbs sprawl during both of the videotaped encounters. Due to this fact
I must assume that he is acting naturally to a sudden impact which he cannot predict. I understand that it IS definitely possible for him to be an
incredibly well-balanced kid who can act up a storm, but his reaction seems far too authentic to discredit at first sight. Of course, more evidence
would be great, but we all know that we have to fly (or sail) to Jamaica in order to get it.
FURTHER SUGGESTIONS: In the first encounter I believe that generating that kind of force from the bottom up would cause the chair to tilt backward as
opposed to sliding (this is opinion not fact). In the second encounter it also appears that his body lifts slightly as something appears to be
pulling at his leg (also opinion, maybe fact). I would finally like to note that a mother reaching out for her son in the second segment does
slightly suggest that she was anticipating an attack. However, EVERYONE was predicting the attack as the boy stated that his 'friend' was near the
wall and his being there would probably serve as provocation. A mother's first instinct would be to reach for her offspring when they are in danger
of falling. In fact, it is human instinct in general to reach for others when they are falling in order to prevent their injury and to prolong the
gene pool of our species as a whole. I know this does not discredit the hoax theory. I am simply stating that the boys reactions appear to be
authentic and that this video is a chilling find of a boy who is unpredictably having his center of gravity shifted by a surprising force. Good job
Now what that force is...I cannot prove one way or the other.
