When at RSE, I was bamboozled by a video that supposedly showed one of RSE's "favourite" students performing the ability to read cards that were turned upside down, just like in Roald Dahl's fictional story of "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugars". The RSE view was that we could focus on cards and see the actual face of the card in infrared and, when turning over the card to reveal its face, it should be what we saw in infrared (interesting that RSE goes at lengths to say in all teachings about the 7 levels of consciousness that the human can only see in visible light...i.e. not in infrared!).
Anyway, if you want to perform Henry Sugar's cards, you simply need to learn the magic trick...which I highly suspect RSE and its student did (the set-up in the RSE video is the same as in the magic video below...i.e. it is key that they both have an "assistant").
Here is a 5-minute video of a magician and his assistant performing the trick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSxpbsuQOSQ
And here is an e-book by the magician that you can buy to learn how to perform it yourself: https://www.kaymarmagic.com/products/he ... am-montier
Plus, we can be fooled by people who memorize a deck of cards (I saw a documentary on this) - see:

Oh, and don't believe anyone who tells you that the story of Henry Sugar is true - here is a quote straight from Roald Dahl's website (noting that the book actually has 7 short stories, of which Henry Sugar is one):
As well as four fictional stories it also includes The Mildenhall Treasure - an account written by Roald in 1946 about the discovery of a hoard of Roman silver found by Suffolk ploughman Gordon Butcher - as well as Lucky Break, Roald's account of how he became a writer, and A Piece of Cake, previously featured in the collection Over To You and included again here as a companion piece for Lucky Break.

And what does science say? It says we cannot see in infrared...except for one very specialised experimental setup (which is far from everyday life):
Using cells from the retinas of mice and people, and powerful lasers that emit pulses of infrared light, the researchers found that when laser light pulses rapidly, light-sensing cells in the retina sometimes get a double hit of infrared energy. When that happens, the eye is able to detect light that falls outside the visible spectrum.[/quote][/quote]

Science also says we cannot see when blindfolded (which the fictional Henry Sugar could do. But you might hear someone quote a headline that the brain can still see, but this is the summary of that scientific test:
When a person can't see, even for a short time, visual areas in the brain begin responding to touch, showing that the brain starts to "see" the world through the fingers instead of the eyes.
I hope this helps.
