The key, according to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," is learning how to fall and missing the ground. Missing the ground can be achieved by merely forgetting its existence. The most precise way to do this is by a moment of distraction, just before hitting the ground, that is so surprising, that you forget about hitting the ground.

Arthur Dent, the main character in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, achieved this moment of distraction. Being human, he was prone to ADD, or attention deficit disorder. One of the times he achieved the key moment of distraction, was seeing the only bottle of Greek Olive Oil on an alien planet.

The moment of distraction becomes easier as you succeed. Simply achieving the moment of distraction and staying in the air is also very difficult, because if you remember the ground below you, you realize the laws of gravity, and therefore, fall.

The art of flying can include many swoops, twirls, and other "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,"-like shit.

Don't use this as the ultimate guide. I do not take responsibility for stupidity, and therefore someone using this as the ultimate guide to flying.
