However, if you knew just one way to find a card but 100 ways to reveal it, it looks like you know 100 tricks. To the audience, it doesn't matter if you make a switch or not. The effect is the same. As I wrote, this arguments sounds like finger flingers who look down on anyone with a gaffed card. Jakubr, the effect you're describing is one where, as you put it, "they will never know for sure [if it's hypnosis], so it opens possibilities of different claims and different presentations." Respectfully, if you use the right patter, the same thing is true with doing a simple card switch that doesn't depend upon mastery of hypnosis. You write it's not the method it's the effect that interests you, but you're saying that the only way to do this (that's the method) is via waking hypnosis. It's just not so, and I agree with Danny. It's a card trick that you want to make LOOK LIKE it's not a card trick. That is my favorite type of card trick. This whole silly argument reminds me of some other websites that are dedicated to NLP where the NLP "experts" (really just IROBs: "I Read One Book" and now I'm an expert) discuss how DB uses NLP to achieve his effects and get very upset when I point out that he uses magic tricks and doesn't need NLP. I just happen to believe in the concept of maximum bang for your buck: getting the most for the least. If you want to spend hours learning and practicing hypnosis to perform a card trick, by all means do it. I just believe it's so much easier to learn the card trick and then present it AS IF it were created via hypnosis. [/quote]
