If this is real, then it's completely nuts. But, I have a sneaking suspicion that it has to be night for a reason. Possibly wires? I don't know, I couldn't really see anything form the side angle because there were so many shadows. Awesome video though.

"There is far more to this world than taught in our schools, shown in the media, or proclaimed by the church and state. Most of mankind lives in a hypnotic trance, taking to be reality what is instead a twisted simulacrum of reality, a collective dream in which values are inverted, lies are taken as truth, and tyranny is accepted as security. They enjoy their ignorance and cling tightly to the misery that gives them identity"-Thomas Cox

The obvious signs of him having to keep his balance while he is in the air is enough to say
that there is some kind of trick to it. The rest is just for show.

Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer.

He is in it for what purveyors of fake signs and wonders have been in it for since the beginning of humanity: power, influence, and control over his fellows.

Money is a modern convenience by which PI&C may be hoarded for later use, but it is a means, not an end. If you have the real thing, then you needn't worry about money. You can always cadge some off of your victims should the need arise.

You wouldn't need to have any balance because you wouldn't be worried about falling off anything.

How can be off balance when you aren't balancing on anything? You can't...

Video seems pretty hoaky to me.

Maybe you won't need balance if you are sure to be hanging there. But I would be afraid of hanging upside down. Weather I will fall or not. Well you can be off balance if not balancing on anything. Like for example non gravity areas? Space and the like? Don't people there have to try to keep straight?

Since you're in the air, you could fall downwards...

Does anybody else notice the little flash that comes off of his right hand?  It uncannily looks like an electric spark or little bolt or something.

I won't stomp on your dreams as long as you don't stomp on my reality.

Posted 05 April 2008 - 08:41 PM

Hmmmm, i'm in two minds.  I couldn't really see any wires or anything, but it was night.  I think it is real, because the look on his face was like, pure concentration.  And i don't think he'd be in it for the money, because he's an african shaman, i doubt he'd need any publicity, and stuff like that.

Still, there is some doubt.
