Corey,

Yes, you are right.

The INFO PACK has allowed you to read between the lines. You've nailed it, broadly speaking. If I tell you any more, I will have no product to sell.

Don't forget, the gimmick is multi-purpose so you don't have to use cards.
The FLOATING BILL OFF SPECTATOR'S KNEE is an example of another use: You're sitting with friends at a bar, restaurant, or at the mall. Borrow a bill and place it on a spectator's knee. Then make it float, hover and ascend. They know there is nothing benaeth it, it's on their leg! Instant, automatic clean up!!

It's all in the two books supplied:

-Quick Start Manual (get you up and going, working with the gimmick)
-E: The Ultimate Floating Card (FULL details on the FC and more)

Cheers

Ustaad,

That magnet is more than adequate. You could use something half the size if you wanted.

Have you ever thought about creating a self-levitation with this? You could levitate a spectator!

Hi Ben!

From your response to Corey I gather the Info Pack was meant to be a bit vague and I don't have a problem with that given the reason in your response.

I do have one specific question for you though. You mention in the Info Pack the Paradigm Shifter could be as small as 25mm x 12mm x 2mm but the one you custom designed is 26.5mm x 26.5mm x 14mm. Does your larger custom designed Paradigm shifter provide any benefits over using the smaller one that meets the minimum requirements? Does the object float higher with the larger Paradigm Shifter? Do you not need to be as close to the spectator with the larger Paradigm Shifter? What is the advantage of using a larger Paradigm Shifter?

The reason I ask is because I already own a "Paradigm Shifter" that is almost the exact size of the minimum requirements you specify, but I may be swayed to purchase a larger one if there are any obvious benefits.

Thanks for your help, and congrats on Enlightenment. It looks like you have come up with another winner! Looking forward to having one soon.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your questions. The magnet you have is fine. No need to buy a new one.
Everyone--if you have a typical PK-Style magnet, then there is no need to buy the Paradigm Shifter.

Bill, the tiny magnet mentioned is the very minimum required to create the effect. The Paradaigm Shifter is a good "mid-point" unit. You can use a much larger "Drive Magnet". There is much room for this idea to evolve and grow in many directions--both large and small. An advantage of The Paradigm Shifter is that it is rubber coated--something I've personally wanted for years. Just makes it more comfortable to use.

Cheers

SOLD OUT

Folks, I can't believe it, are you trying to kill me with attention and enthusiasm?

The limited run of 100 units is completely allocated (89, anyway).
There's probably a few orders in the mail from people who have not emailed
a notification, so, I'd say we're done.

To be completely fair to those who may be on their way to the post office today or in the morning,

WE WILL HONOUR ALL ORDERS POSTMARKED APRIL 4, 2008 or before.

This is hard to draw this line in the sand. It's the 3rd here, the second elsewhere and the 4th somewhere else! This is the only way I can think of to ensure that you don't miss out on the optional add-on or autographed set.


Otherwise please ask your dealer to order the Limited Edition Boxed Set for you. Dealers worldwide will have stock in early May.

Thanks again for the furious support. I can't wait for your feedback once you'ver played with Enlightenment.

Cheers

Ben

I have just been told by my dealer that they will be getting this product in when it goes out to all dealers, so you can expect a review from me in the future (probably not too soon though). I am over the moon! Ben just to let you know your effect is one of a rare few that I am willing to buy that requires a gimmick!

I'm sure theres a very special offer. Something along the lines of, DON'T BUY IT AND SAVE YOUR MONEY.

Sounds like a good deal for ya!

Jeeesh...Always got to be one.
