David Blaine is just over halfway through his latest experience hanging upside down for hours in America.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/hi/enter ... 630785.stm

I find the things he does very interesting personally and I quite like what little I know about him but it seems many others have different opinions.

What are your views on David Blaine and his 'experiences'?

I respect anyone who gets out there and does stuff like themselves instead of talking/theorising about it.

When he started off years ago as a street magician he was interesting - now he's just mad. Why hang upside down for days? Who gives a ?

He sounds a bit batty ,...

Hahah .. Bat-ty .. Geddit? Geddit? :mrgreen:

He's gone very much into mastery over his own body this last few years .. but, don't ask how with hanging upside down, a few of the things he's done might have had a trick or two involved in them given his background .. I don't know, I'm just saying .. well, thinking on them, maybe not ..

yeah,its all that I find interesting about him tho!
The street magician stuff didnt and still doesnt interest me especially in the way he did it on the tv although what he did and how he did it was interesting, its the mastery over the body I find interesting......the 'batty' stuff (Jay thats a bad joke even for you!)...but to put the body in ususual/stressful situations and be observed I find very interesting!

he's actually someone I'd like to have a proper converation with about what he does,how he does it and why he does it....I do genuinely find it interesting!!!

I think as investigators we should be exposing ourselves to different things and seeing the effects they have on us personally (sleep deprivation/light deprivation/eye tiredness etc) so once we are aware of how we personally experience things like this we can potentially eliminate things we experience during investigations because if when our eyes do get tired we see a flickering out of the corner and get a 'tingling sensation' on the head linked with this then we can have a more blalnced and grounded approach to potentially what it could maybe be!

we are own guinea pigs,its up to us to find how we function at different times in a variety of scenarios so we can decide for ourselves what it a normal physiological response for us in certain conditions and what is actually 'unusual' for us in certain conditions...
a sort of baseline for us personally to work from!
I know this will always vary as nothing is ever really the same but if during the 'tests' we do get physiological 'patterns' when exposed to certain conditions then this can only be a good thing!
recently I've been doing day to day things from a 'investagative' perspective and I've noticed certain patterns forming which have got me wondering.....

but anyway,getting back to David Blaine I do think its a good and intersting thig he's doing and I think because of the press coverage he now gets and has had in the past peoples opinion of him has changed...and I wonder why the press have done this.....

Part of what he's trying to do is using the trial to put himself into an altered state of consciousness .. put yourself into an uncomfortable position and go through the "pain barrier" and your conscious mind wll eventually flip into an altered state .. some in the game call it Gnosis .. It seems to me he's using these methods to experience it.

I'm always polite when I talk about others down-below-parts .. no need to be vulgar if you can get away with something else!! No need to talk about "other" things when we can talk about little-kittens or talk about Kevin Keegans ..

ah...but I can understand why he pushes his body to those lengths Pam!
Altho I dont know his reasons its the type of thing I'd be stupid enough to do if I was motivated enough,its interesting!!!!
And he only doe s the stuff once and trains for his stuff form what I gather.....many atheletes of sportspeople (lookat the young gymnasts esp the chinese and russians) do harsher things over a longer period of time....only tis acceptable so people dont bat an eyelid tothe physical and mental damage they are doing to themselves....

Yeah Lee.......mad innit!!!

nobody on this earth should damage or push themselfs to limits to the extent the body cannot and will not handle, this would only cause serious consiquenes :roll:

I basically agree with you there Pam....
.....but then another part of me thinks push push push all limits...we only have the limits on us we set ourselves anyway so done with the correct intention I can only see good stuff coming from seeing what the body is capable off!!!
he's not daft,he knows what he's doing enough and he's not sitting there getting someone to do it for him,he's doing it himself which I applaud!!!

as i see it on everything he does , he is wanting the centre of the universe to look at him,,, scams,and as for saying that he has extended his body many times to the point that he has nearlly died ,,,, i dont think humans are really cut out for such things, if he was born without a brain maybe ,,, my son has all the dvd's and has worked out that it would be impossible to do half of what he does ,,,he is only a magican :roll:
