be accomplished through a number of ways. In
Buddhism it is believed one can levitate himself
through spiritual meditation, which involves
a complete focused state of mind. In isolated

Crossing continents to
Africa and South America, many members of tribes
practice magical acts, such as levitation. Unimaginable
feats take place within tribal areas, and records
of African inhabitants lifting themselves, along
with other physical possessions, such as cows
are not rare occurrences.
these personal accounts are realistic is questionable,
but there is no denying the fact the illusion
of levitation can be created through modern
magic and presentation.
