"something strange, i don't see in this something incredible or special"

Alright, this comment has always bothered me. First, this video is in the beginners part two section -- you shouldn't expect something incredible or special.
Second, it is actually useful. This move makes you more comfortable with working behind your back.

To those confused: (I think I understand this)
Try a low turn to the right with just your right hand, then try the same hand motion without turning your body.
A) If you do it right, the Poi will pass behind your back and come forward on your left side.
B) Essentially, each Poi swings forward once across the body and then immediately does A

If this doesn't help, try youtube XD

Not really. Its a cross between a 2 beat waist wrap, and a full body crosser.

Another great tutorial, and thanks for adding the transition ideas at the end, too.

Isn't this just a meltdown? I thought the "mind" part was doing it at your shoulders/ around your head.

Pretty positive it is a meltdown only, i believe the mind meltdown terminology came later.

They transition together well though smile
