How I Learned Egg Balancing

Is Balancing An Egg Telekinesis?

Is balancing an egg on its end (without cheating) telekinesis? Telekinesis or psychokinesis is about using the mind to influence objects in some way.

With spoon bending you are usually touching, holding or stroking the spoon (or fork, whatever). But (we) believers consider it is not normal physical force which causes the metal to bend.

We believe some kind of mental or spiritual energy manifests to cause the actual bending or twisting of the metal. We consider it a paranormal event.

I've tried for years, on and off, to bend forks, knives, spoons. I've had limited success. No bending but I do feel the metal occasionally go soft, etc. I've had a fascination for TK and PK most of my life.

Then one day I got the idea to try to balance an egg on its end. At that time, along with millions of other people, I considered it quite impossible to balance eggs on their ends. But I felt compelled to try it and see what would happen.

Amazingly, I was able, eventually, to balance an egg on its end. I then went on to balance many more eggs and show other people how to do it also.

Am I psychic? Do I have telekinetic power? I honestly believed - or wanted to believe - that eggs could only be balanced by people with some kind of psychic or paranormal ability.

Well, I've come a long way since then and even wrote a book about it. In chapter 12 I discuss the paranormal aspect of egg balancing.

Meanwhile, here is the first chapter of the book which Toni, my life partner, and I wrote.

This is not a "magic trick". Is it telekinesis? These are genuine egg balances as revealed in our book Egg Balancing Secrets!

Hello. My name is Charles Russell Stockdale (Rusty). Until 2005 at age fifty-five I believed that it was impossible to balance an egg on its end. I am not alone. Countless millions of people world wide believe that it’s impossible.

Recently I not only learned it was possible, I actually discovered for myself how to balance eggs on end, and taught my partner, Toni. We went on to learn even more incredible things about balancing eggs.

If you have yet to balance your first egg, Toni and I are confident our book provides all the information required to accomplish this “impossible” feat without “cheating” in any way.

Ch 1 - Columbus' Egg

Your initiation into Egg Balancing Secrets! begins with the Columbus’ Egg story. Why? Firstly, because you are very likely to come across one or more versions of the story when searching the internet or libraries for egg balancing information.

Secondly, it seems that by far the greater part of humanity are in agreement with Christopher Columbus, that it is impossible to balance an egg without breaking It! So that reading the Columbus’ Egg story can “infect” you with what could be called the “Columbus Impossibility Virus”. YOU, however, are about to become IMMUNE to this virus.

This immunisation will occur when you learn Secret #1 very soon.

Most of us learned at school that In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and discovered America, amongst other things. We are not so familiar with the story about Christopher Columbus' egg balancing.

According to legend, Christopher Columbus attended a dinner given in his honor. Columbus invites his fellow guests to make an egg stand on end. After the gentlemen successively tried and failed, they protested that it was impossible.

Columbus then placed the egg on the table, breaking the shell a bit, so that it could stand upright. He then stated that it was "the simplest thing in the world. Anybody can do it, after he has been shown how!"

The Columbus’ Egg story is found all over the net when you start looking. There are even photos of the monument to Columbus' broken egg located in San Antonio, Ibiza. (It’s claimed Columbus is from there).

You can see the flattened bottom of the egg, and you might be able to see his ship in the hole in the middle.When you’ve learned that eggs can be balanced without breaking them or otherwise “cheating”, you may then share our wonder that someone as capable and persistent as Christopher Columbus did not discover the secrets of egg balancing himself!

However, Toni and I agree with the principle of Columbus’ assertion, that anybody can do it after they have been shown how. The huge difference is that now, with our book Egg Balancing Secrets! there is NO need to break the egg. The purpose of this book is to show you how to balance an egg without cheating or using any form of trickery!
