Hi.i’m a iranian…
criss very very very very lovely…
i love u criss…
I love lovely things too!!
but it’s very simple i believe. every thing has a logical reason, we can be surprised by things we see for the first time and have fun guessing. or if it’s not a funny thing just look for the reason or WE.
what I think is : when we don’t have enough information to deny something (a new thing) we’ll believe it even with a poor reason!
for example i’ll tell you “i can cut off my finger and eat it, then have it back!” you already know that what gonna happen to it into my stomach … so you won’t believe.
but imagine that some one is talking to you in a language that you don’t know! I’ll show off(u don’t know me) and smile at the person and move my lips like i’m saying hello(you won’t hear a thing)…and he’ll do the same thing then he’ll say something in his language and i smile at him! then i tell you he says he’ll do you tonight:D then I go…
do you think that i knew his language? will you believe what i said?
I love you I would marry you if I could please contact me I know I seem crazy but to meet you of even see you at believe or something I want to meet you so bad of you even did a trick for me just the simplest thing lome making a coin disappear is a dream come true I’m in my late 20s and need you please email me I want youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.s my favorite song is right now by corn
hahahaha… its funny how our society seem to believe everything that we see and hear. but not taking any credits away from Cris Angel. he is a very talented person with brights ideas.
i like criss angel alot. he does alot of mind tricks that seem to get people to actually believe them. Society these days are so easily influenced and never ask the right questions. But i think this was a great article/explanation for those who were completely convinced.
very interesting but I didnt expect for him to reveal his secret
We were shown this video in class to demonstrate how the mind can easily be tricked into believing. I think that it is human nature to be curious and to want to believe there is something we can’t seeor understand.
If you hadn’t seen the video in class, would you have believed it?
I was pretty surprised and disappointed to see how “simple” this illusion is. I could have sworn that I had seen another instance of him levitating in the middle of a large crowd without anything to stand on; maybe my mind is deceiving me. I thought that levitation was going to be more complex than it was, but kudos to Criss Angel for his balance and distraction abilities.
I was so glad to see this video. I immediately sent it to my friend. For a long time my friend and husband have found Criss Angel truly unexplainable and even at one time thought he could have demonic powers. I’m glad to see this is just a visual trick and nothing more.
