Air pressure and density in terms of surrounding air are very similar. It is very similar to stacking books on top of each other. The book at the bottom will have more pressure being applied to it than that of the book on top. This is similar to density in the air. As the carbon dioxide from the flames makes its way into the balloon, the balloon inflates. The air going inside the balloon is in a sense "lighter" than that of the air outside of the balloon. The air inside the balloon therefor has "less" density, and therefor rises up.
The Principle of Buoyancy relates to hot air balloons in terms of displacement. As the warm air rushes into the balloon; colder and slower air is released out. Warmer air has faster moving particles, and since air consists of gases, then these particles are spaced out. As the colder air is displaced, the balloon will reach a certain point of equalibrium (this being when the balloon has displaced the same quantity of air in which was inserted into the balloon). Once this equalibrium is breached, and more air is displaced, the balloon will be consumed be larger amounts of faster moving particles. These faster, warmer particles will then cause the balloon to rise. Similar to the controversial saying of "warm air rises", the less dense air will cause the balloon to rise.
Any questions? Probably.

Have you ever been camping and wondered how these famous mountain scalers accomplished what they have? Or how weather patterns really determine the next day's weather? Well, this is all the result of mathematics (simple algebra) and science.
To find weather patterns, one must look at the recent barometer and wind meter and find the mean (average) of all of the data results. Then take a look at the weather history in the area, as well as find the average of the weather patterns for the last 4 days. This will give you an approximate weather condition for a specific day. (However, one must also take into account outside numbers, or freelance numbers. These numbers may throw off the result, so always take these into account.)
What do you think? Do you think that God plays a role in everything? Or do you think that God creates people, objects, and places in hopes that we, as humans, will make the correct choices? Do you believe that God has a role in anything? Do you even believe in an omnipotent source?
Let me know! Remember: there are no stupid questions, just my stupid answers!

The idea of levitation was already somewhat proved in the field of pseudo scientific study; but such things as mind control using color repetition seems a bit far. Now, for those Fringe lovers out there, I'm not trying to talk bad about the show, I am simply asking if the writers of the show are stretching the field a bit far? Levitation and invisibility are one thing, but mind control and hallucinogens are closer in the area of theoretical science.
Someone- please give me some feedback, email me, and we can get some ideas flowing.
