A few days ago I saw a guy extinguish a kerosene lamp by doing the "point-the-finger-at-it" trick. I was right there in the room, and there was no substantial, or at least visual, trick to it. It wasn't a swooshing movement down, and it was more of a direct path to the candle inside the lamp.
I'm no scientific guy when it comes to the wind. So I don't know if it's possible for the wind to maneuver itself in such a way to move itself down the lamp and extinguish the candle.
Anyone care to enlighten my ignorance? No one else there could do it in the same manner and consistency that he did. So unless one can get super good at controlling the wind outside of using physical technique (improbable), how the hell did it happen?
Could it be.....
Could it be he tricked you and had a remote switch or other magic style trick?? Also vid for proof please otherwise you are a liar.
I can't think of any qigong I've learned that teaches you to do that or has anything to do with an open flame.

Be more cynical. Watch heist movies.

What was the guy's explanation for this? Magic powers? Were these powers good for anything else, because that's a pretty useless application.
Weird how you described this exact video.
Yes it is a trick.
