It sounds incredible, doesn't it? Like something straight out of a movie. You'd be right to be sceptical - I was too, when I first heard of the technique. I mean, how can it be possible? Bend light somehow? Use an advanced camouflage method as shown in the James Bond film "Die Another Day"? Make your molecules invisible? Unfortunately, none of these methods are practical. The most promising of them would seem to be the James Bond one - at least a very basic form of that technology has already been demonstrated, though certainly not to the extent shown in the movie. But the method I was taught takes a different approach to the problem. One that I am pleased to be able to reveal to the world.
So will this really make me invisible?
To all human eyes, you will be totally invisible. You will be able to make objects appear to float around the room, you'll be able to walk freely in and out of restricted areas without fear of being spotted, all your fantasies will become true! You are free to use this power as you wish, though I would suggest you are careful - as we shall see, just because you are invisible to other people, it doesn't mean that other animals or security cameras can't see you.
What do you mean?
Well, as you may have guessed by now, the method of invisibility I am about to teach you is based on psychological effects. It's not hypnosis, and it will work on over 99.9% of the people you will encounter on your invisible travels, but it is not 100% foolproof (and I have yet to see proof of any method that is). It also requires a lot of mental effort to sustain the invisibility, so plenty of practise is required. To begin with, you may experience only moments of partial transparency, but with enough training you should be able to go for over an hour in full invisibility. My personal record is over 80 minutes of sustained transparency!
It sounds too good to be true. Let's get started!
Don't try to run before you can walk. There are several key stages which must be perfected before the effect even begins to become noticeable. But stick with it and I guarantee that you will achieve what most people think is impossible. I don't believe there is anything in the technique that would make it unsuitable for any age - as long as you're old enough to understand what I say, and competent enough to use your mind as I instruct, you will be well on the way to becoming invisible.
If this technique is so good, why haven't I seen it on TV?
As mentioned previously, there is a large psychological element to it. This means that although people won't see you, cameras will. Trying to perform the effect on television will only make you look an idiot. The people in the studio might not see you, but everyone at home will know exactly what you're up to. That's not to say I haven't been asked - several TV presenters who have seen my demonstrations have almost demanded that I appear on their shows, but I have had to decline. I am not currently at liberty to reveal their identities.
Are you the only one who knows how to do this?
By no means! I've taught the skills to approximately 40 people over the past five years, and I know of at least two of them who have gone on to reveal the method to others. There have also been several people I have attempted to teach, but for various reasons they gave up or did not complete the full course, and never achieved total transparency. All of those who completed the exercises have demonstrated an ability to become invisible. You may have even encountered one of these people and not known it!
I have also heard reports of people experiencing moments of spontaneous invisibility - take a look at this site and this site to read more about them. Note that none of the people mentioned in these articles have been trained - given suitable instruction they would be able to control their episodes.
What about my clothes? Do I have to be naked?
That's the beauty of psychological effects - it's not your skin that becomes invisible, it's the whole you, which includes anything you might be wearing. Once you have become invisible, you'll be able to manipulate objects that are currently in view of observers, but anything on you at the time you perform the transformation will be included. Of course, once you're invisible you're free to run around naked if that's what interests you - no-one will know!
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
You're paying nothing to be here, so you've lost nothing other than a few minutes of your time reading this. If you decide to go ahead and begin training for full invisibility you will need to devote a certain amount of your spare time to it, but believe me if you follow my instructions you will see results! Once you master the effect, you'll soon come up with novel ways to make money from it - though I cannot condone illegal activities.
This is some kind of joke, right?
If you don't want to believe this is possible, you'll never succeed. A positive mental attitude is one of the keys to making this work. Read through what I have to say, and move on to the next site on your list. For those of you who are willing to put in the time, you'll discover just how much fun being invisible can be!
Come on! How do we do it???
Ok, ok, I won't keep you waiting any longer. It's time to let you in on the secrets of true invisibility. It starts simple, with a mental exercise that you can practise whenever you have a quiet moment. Here's what you have to do:
Ok, I've mastered stage 1. What next?
Now that you have the ability to hold a thought about having a part of your body transparent, it's time to move on to stage 2.
Should I repeat stage 1 at all during stage 2?
It's not necessary to go back to stage 1 at this point, unless you feel you're having trouble nailing the five minutes needed for the full body sweep. Perhaps you moved on too soon, if this is the case. Return to stage 1 for another week, then come back to stage 2 and see if it's any easier.
Great. Mastered both stages - why am I still visible?
Patience! If it was that easy, don't you think everyone would be doing it by now? There is still a long way to go, but by now you are getting your head into the space it needs to be for total invisibility to become effective. All really impressive skills take time to learn and turning invisible is no exception.
Bring on stage 3, then!
A word of warning to those who think they can jump straight in at this stage without fully mastering the previous two - you could do yourself serious mental damage if you are not prepared. I have never taken anyone on to this stage who I wasn't sure was ready for it. Please, if you have any doubts whatsoever, seek the advice of a medical doctor or a psychiatrist. There is a risk involved here and I do not want to be responsible for any decline in your health. If you have successfully completed both of the above stages, you will be mentally prepared for what is to come and you should be fine. But please, if you have any doubts whatsoever DO NOT CONTINUE. You have been warned.
Now, for the first time, we'll get a second person involved in the exercise. This person should be someone you trust, someone who will read through these instructions with you and understand what it is you are trying to achieve. If this person is not sympathetic to your aims, they will only hinder your progress. Ideally they should be your partner, but if you are single you can ask a close friend or a relative to take part. We'll refer to this second person as your "invisibuddy".
Ask your invisibuddy to bring a pen and paper to the exercise. Have them sit near you, quietly, to observe you as you perform the mental tasks I am about to list. At the start of the task, and at the end, they should write down how "visible" they think you are, expressed as a percentage. 100% would mean you were totally visible, and 0% would be a very early (and, unfortunately, unlikely) success - total invisibility. Throughout the exercise, if they notice any change, however small, in your visibility, they should make a note of the time and whether they thought you got more visible, or less visible, than before. This will provide a useful "map" for you to refer to later, to see how effective your mental exercises are becoming.
Apart from these notes, your invisibuddy should have no other input into the exercise - please ask them to keep as quiet as possible throughout the hour. Even the noise a pen makes can be distracting. An experienced invisibuddy will try to match their breathing rate to yours, which can actually aid in your relaxation.
Now, onto the exercise from your point of view:
