Yogic Flying

A while ago, in my tongue-in-cheek response to the Amazing Criss Angel Levitation post, I posted a bit about the Amazing Levitation of the Cult Leader and Terrorist Shoko Asahara (where he claimed he can levitate by means of "Yogic Flying").

Now, behold - you can see the Yogic Flying in its full majesty: hit play or go to http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3825056345770693923&q=yogic%2Bflying&total=28&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=0 [Google Video]

Folks - suspending disbilief for a while, you need to notice:
(a) doing this actively in a group in this coordinated fashion is next to impossible - unless they practice this for years!
(b) none of them seem to be exerting themselves to jump - look at their posture at the time of take off
(c) the jump is quite high - so attempting to do this purely physically and for such a distance would be really exhausting. They don't look tired to me.
(d) TM guys themselves say that "hopping" is stage 1 -stage 2 and 3 are what they are after. Of which a video might be much more interesting.
(e) I have experienced uncontrollable surges of energy when you do some yoga practices - none of them involved jumping, but I can imagine if the same energy gets coordinated directionally, it could make you jump!
So yes - it does look incredible and pointless, but I wouldn't write it off simply because I have never experienced it myself. Though the bullshit quote is hilarious :))

That's jumping that is.

It's also connected to that whole 'if frogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their ass when they jump...' thing...

Flying?
My arse...
