Illusions are fun and they do exist... as tricks of our perception.
Anomalies, and various psi phenomenon also exist within the limitations of the PUP.
be teleporting. Most would think it is an illusion, so the PUP would not be violated per say. However, because he is a known, professional illusionist; it is most likely that it is just an illusion (masterfully done). Still though, it is within the realm of possibility that he is actually teleporting. The best you can do is make a logical guess and carry on. It is not wise to hold any potential answer too tightly. Most of us will not likely ever know for certain what Copperfield is doing. Latching onto one answer is like pouring concrete around your feet and trying to connivence others to join you. This is the danger of being a believer of anything be it religion, MBT, or elfs.
Teleportation, telekinesis, materialization are amongst things that I am looking to understand. Remote viewing, OBE, etc. are too of great interest.
So far, I am having no success, but I am hoping to find my answers anyways.
The problem is that you are seeking answers from books and videos. Such things can provide nudges, guideposts, and hints, but not answers. Real answers come from experience, not analysis. If you find interest in psi topics, then set down your ego, loosen your grip on Copperfield, set your intent on evolving the quality of your consciousness, and follow that drive to explore such things through personal experience.
It's teleporation in my books. I don't know how to explain it due to the lack of common terms, but it's the public demonstration of what I had read in books I am inclined to trust.
So much for open-mindedness.
P.S. open-mindedness does not equate to people agreeing with you :)
