Hi there.

As I am looking through Richard Osterlinds Mind Mysteries, and every day making sure to do some random checks on the Breakthrough Card System, I cannot help to think about a few things..

I mean, how is it possible to discover that the cards in the system will be cyclical by that exact order? How is it possible to discover if you do a little bit of math you will reach a number (or letter) and find a card. Then, by some byplay - trying not to expose - you will find the suit of the card.

I'm flabbergasted! It's genious, and logical when you learn it. Even so, it amazes me how it's possible to discover...

What I'm asking is: How is it possible to discover such a stack? Is there any one who can explain some of the thoughts behind such a discovery?

It takes years of thinking and development. There are many other people who are recognized for remarkable achievements just like Osterlind who have dedicated their lives to creating amazaing things.

Their have been many revolutionary discoveries that have changed the path of magic. People like Paul Harris, Vernon, Jennings, Slydini, Skinner all have that in common. I believe.

Yes, that is obvious enough Smile I was just wondering if anybody has some feedback regarding how the mechanics behind such a stack is discovered Smile

Samuel,

I'm not really familiar with the Breakthrough Card System but do you think you could use StackView to perform this type of analysis? Are you familiar with it?
