# What causes levitation? – Simple Magic Tricks With Hands

As the name implies, levitation occurs when a particle (such as a balloon or an object with a solid interior) levitates. A particle is an atomic or neutral mass in a state of motion, or a vibrational phase, when the particle is in a particular vibrational state. The vibrational state of an atomic or ionized mass is the vibrational phase of that mass (the “state of motion”), in which the mass is moving in one of two directions (in space).

A particle of water, for example, starts as an atomic nucleus floating motionlessly in a vacuum. If the water is immersed completely in water, the nucleus would be at rest on the bath table, its energy released by the vibrational state of the vacuum. After enough water is introduced into the room, the nucleus will be in the first phase (where the energy is being released) and begin to vibrate (moving) in an inward-going direction in water, creating a vacuum. At this point the nucleus can no longer hold itself in a vacuum and will be released, at the same time that the water is being expanded, by its attraction to the pressure of an expanding atmosphere. The vibrational state of the atomic nucleus, therefore, is essentially the state where the energy is being released during the initial oscillation, or “boiling,” of the nucleus. The nucleus is the object in the water that produces the action, or vibration, as it is called in physics.

In the same way, in a vibrating sphere, the water molecules will oscillate in an outward-going direction (or phase) as the water expands and contracts. The water in this case is in the second phase (where the water is the object being moved, by the force of gravity, and in an outward-going direction) and is releasing the energy that was previously released as it was expanding and contracting.

Because the nucleus of an atom has a specific vibration in the vibrational phase, the nucleus must be present at its vibrational state in its vibrational phase (so the vibrational properties are the same in both the vibrational and the superposition states). An atom of carbon has vibrational properties. Carbon has a specific frequency (its “frequency spectrum) for each vibration state (and superposition of vibrations). These vibrational characteristics are different from the atomic properties that a carbon atom has.

The oscillation, or vibration, of an electron can be thought of the motion of the “spin axis,” (also
