is presented to illustrate that it is possible to control the
preconceived concepts of reality or as some
might say, what is possible or impossible. We all have the ability to
influence not only ourselves but others. And what stops many
people from succeeding is the influence of others and their beliefs and
This type of demonstration,
the nail bending, is not something that I advertise or offer to do as part of my
regular performances. The conditions needed to bring it to a successful
end are nearly impossible to control. And I have decided it is far
easer to wait until conditions may be right than to try and control
the mercurial nature of the experiment. It is one of a handful
of studies/experiments that I conduct more for my own enjoyment/enlightenment/Information than
those who participate in the experiment.
It is not improbable
that I may at some point in the future include a performance such as
exhibited on the tape as part of a lecture or seminar. However
chances are slim to none that it will ever reach the level of reliability
to be performed as part of my stage or platform offerings.
I chose to use spikes because most people would

validation necessary for the audience member. It is necessary to
enable her to allow the phenomena occur.
In short it gives reason to believe,
however brief, that it might be accomplished via brute force.
But I would suggest one watch the young lady very carefully and you
will notice that she offers no resistance to the implied force. And
she exclaims after the force is no longer applied that she can feel it bending. For those of you
who study such things you will realize that it is she who produced
the phenomena of a paranormal event and that I only controlled the variables
necessary to let the phenomena occur.
