What causes levitation? – Magic Show Tricks

The human body has two mechanisms for levitating. The primary mechanism is called parasympathetic inhibition or P.I. The second mechanism, or autonomic parasympathetic mechanism, is known as P.A.

Parasympathetic inhibition is one of the primary mechanisms for the human body to remain stable in gravity and maintains a balance of energy within our blood. When the body is hypovolemic and hypothermic, such as during flight, a parasympathetic inhibitory mechanism will cause us to lose some of our normal energy output. The parasympathetic inhibitor will cause us to lose a little of our normal blood pressure regulation, thereby causing us to experience low blood sugar. This is known as hypoglycemia.

The autonomic parasympathetic mechanism is a secondary mechanism of levitation, the second in the energy balance chain. During flight, a secondary mechanism will cause us to lose an extra 3% of our energy output. In the event of a large increase in energy output, we will experience an imbalance of autonomic regulation as well as blood sugar.

This imbalance in the parasympathetic and autonomic parasympathetic systems causes our body to levitate.

Can I use an electric or gas powered plane?

Not really. Most of our airplanes rely on high-voltage motors or high-pressure pumps that cannot generate the same level of force as a gas driven plane. This, in turn, limits the amount of energy we can generate without producing an excessive amount of heat during flight.

How much power can I use at one time?

The answer is simple. If you only wish to float a couple paces from the runway and land, use the maximum allowable energy available. Don’t try to levitate as high as possible, because that is not possible under the conditions of air-flow velocity and atmospheric pressure.

You can calculate your allowable power with a simple equation:

E = E x m


E is the speed of the plane and the force of gravity at sea level

is the speed of the plane and the force of gravity at sea level m is the maximum allowed airspeed

is the maximum allowed airspeed x m the amount of power you can produce with your hand

A typical gas-powered airplane uses anywhere from 0.4 kW-1 kW, depending on the engine configuration and operating conditions. Some models use even less. (Read
