it's become a term used to insult those with an interest
in the paranormal. Personally, I don't think there's anything
paranormal about the phenomenon because it seems so downright
NORMAL when you do can do it. For a very good description
of what I'm talking about, Michael Crichton's non-fiction
book "Travels" describes
his own experience with cutlery mutation. Whatever it is,
it works just as well on forks - so I prefer to use the
term 'forkbending' to try to avoid the crazy connotations
associated with 'spoonbending'. Besides, forks make more
interesting shapes on the whole, although they're a little
scarier to work with.
admit it is weirdness of the highest order, but it's weirdness
that is very real. Everyday people can do it, which is
why I'm so amazed it's still controversial. You could probably
do it yourself. I'm no expert, but I started this site
because there's so little about it on the web. I wanted
to share my own amateur experience and hopefully encourage
others who are more expert than me to bring their own knowledge
to the web. I'm not really sure how it works, but it's
seems that anything about 'anomalous experiences' on
the internet falls into one of three categories: kooky
'there are aliens among us and there's a government conspiracy
to cover it up' sites; arrogant 'skeptics' sites which
often contain statements like 'there is NO scientific
evidence to back up any claims of the paranormal' - obviously
these people haven't been to the (rare) third category
of site, and that which I find most fascinating - serious
scientific sites investigating experiences similar to
this, such as that at Princeton University. They're studying
things like how the brain-waves of stressed pilots can
affect the highly sensitive equipment in a cockpit -
scary, but true! Check out my links for sites like these,
as well as a few of the kooky ones. You never know where
you might find something that turns out to be factual.
I never would have thought I could bend a fork, but...
there goes another one!
hope you enjoy the site, and remember:
are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Jasper was being a bit impatient here and skipped the
'channeling' stage, so you can see he still used a
bit of force. There are big, thick antique pieces of
cutlery/flatware though, and he's not using a huge
amount of force. Anyway, make up your own mind. Try
might shoot some new video for the step-by-step now
you can upload good quality video for free. Oh how
I love web 2.0!
