You have to look really, really close at the picture on the site to see what it is. Heres a hint: The first word has to do with what your PK ring is. The second word is what we are trying to do to an object with this effect.

I don't know if we are suppose to come out and say it yet and I don't want to get anyone riled up. Sorry for being so cryptic.

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

Since it's fairly plainly visible on the site and a week away from the release of the info pack, I don't think anyone will get riled. On the contrary, it seems to be adding to the excitement. The packaging alone looks cool, as usual for Ben's stuff. Another intriquing thing...the picture of a warranty card?? Wow! That has to be a first!

I think we all get what MLP is. It is very exciting to contemplate that Ben Harris has made this principal into something reliable and controllable.

Very exciting.

OK great!! I thought you guys were serious about not knowing what it meant.
My mistake and I was not trying to make anyone feel dumb and I apologize if it sounded that way.
Just trying to help out.

Yes it is very exciting and I can't wait!!

Ben saw how much I loved Cosmosis and wrote me asking if I'd like to see a small write up on Enlightenment. After watching the demo clip, I had to say yes.

Today I kept reading the write up and watching the demo clip.

Anyone remember John Travolta's movie "Phenomenon"? ( it's one of John's favorite films of his). There were some things he did in that movie that were subtle. He put his hand out and the pen moved. Pages of the book turned. They were very subtle. He didn't raise cars, etc. That's what "Enlightenment" reminds me of: A subtle, unexplainable miracle.

When I first watched the video, I thought "I don't care if there is an elephant behind a curtain waving his trunk, that's an incredible illusion".

Well, no elephant is needed, just a small precision gimmick.

Ben was kind enough to let me take a peek under the curtain. PLEASE do not e-mail me or PM asking for more details. I don't care if you're dating my sister, I'm not at liberty to discuss any details.

In two months everyone can order one if they are interested.

I know, I love Ustaad too. But Ben has the key to the back door....

It will be out soon. I only know a little more than everyone. But, I think it's gonna rock.

I still perform Hover Card. Anyone that passed on it because it was a gimmick, missed out because the reactions are jaw dropping. But, there are limitations to it.

With Ben's, the card, as everyone sees in the demo, lifts up while in their hands.

Of course, some folks may not care for it. We all have our likes and dislikes, etc. Ben isn't selling a potion you drink and then you can float stuff. lol. There is a gimmick and hey, some people don't like TT's.

And...it's going to come with a 100 page photo illustrated book. Some folks don't like to read ( I'm dyslexic, and while John Steinbeck can carry me off to distant places, magic books have always made me struggle ).

But, I think this is going to be a monster when it's released. ANYTHING in their hands gets bigger reactions. Have a card transpo while in their hands, it's stronger than finding the card in the deck.

Having an object, like a playing card ( signed and they get to keep it ) lift up in their hands.....it's going to be an incredible moment. As Paul Harris says, that's the time to be quiet and let them absorb the moment.

Hi Everyone.

Firsty, Happy Easter to you all.

Secondly, I have a mailbox full of mail asking "Why did you give Chris a sneak peek, why not me?"

The answer. Chris is VERY active here at the Café. I thought (and still do) that he was the ideal person to look over a draft of the "Product Spec" to make sure I was delivering on my promise to come clean with the method. So, thanks Chris, and I hope no-one kicks in your back door!

We will release the "Product Spec" to all in about 10 days or so. It's getting close. We are also fully on track for the May release.

Cheers and thanks to you all for you continued interest.

Thanks for the update Ben. Happy Easter to you as well.

I'm really excited about this. I have put two and two together and figured out what MLP is, but that makes me even more excited that Ben has finally found a way to harness and control this. In other words, he has "tamed the beast."

Ben, you have reached the holy frail, my good man, and we salute you!

I want everyone to know when Ben offered to let me see some specifics, there were no strings attached or any constraints. He was quite clear that I could write anything I wanted, good or bad. I think anyone that knows me on the Café knows that I say what I feel. For all he knew, I could have read what he sent me and wrote "this isn't even practical. You'd have to have the wind blowing at a certain angle..."

He must have had enormous confidence in his creation to let me look at the write up. After reading what he sent, I can see why he's so proud and confident.

And now...I'll bow out of this until it's released and let folks that get it offer their thoughts. It will be fun to hear about reactions during performances.

I haven't been excited about a magic product in a LONG time...

Enlightenment has me waiting on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to get my hands on this!

HAHHAHAHA. I got scared and thought people thought I was saying that was needed. lol. No wind needed.

I was concerned the rights to Enlightenment was going to be bought out by one of the TV guys and we'd miss out on it.

Glad to hear that oombob. Now that I know what it is (Kind of) I'm really more exited than what I was when I wasn't sure. I have a feeling that this is going to be great.

Ustaad, I was afraid of the same thing when I read something by Ben that said that they were work on the TV rights. I'm not sure who wanted to use it, But I'm glad it worked out so that its still available to us.

Hi Tim . . . yes, glad it worked out and is still available to us. We can certainly look forward to getting the effect. Smile

Hi Chris, You see how I managed to twist/ turn/ distort/ misrepresent your statement? The entire meaning was changed - just like a politician or a media man does. LOL! Smile

Smile
P.S. I’m NOT a politician/ media man. LOL!
