Hey

Just thought I'd share an effect that is really effective online via MSN Messenger or AOL messenger when you have a webcam. I performed it 6 times yesterday evening..its the best Online trick I've worked on so far.

It's my updating of the original called "El Numero" (updated the title as its performed online) and will require you to use your webcam. I wont explain the exact working (it can be found in Osterlinds ETMM DVD series as well as other places) but if you are familar with the original trick you will be able to follow the presentation..

" Mind Reading..the idea that someone can think of anything, and you'd somehow be able to look into their mind tell them what they are thinking.

But surely if you were to think about it logically..the easiest way to do that would be to MAKE them think of a certain thought.

So, as a little experiment we'll see if I can attempt a bit of "Mind Control" on you. Now, "Mind Control" is nothing spooky or scary, there are people who do it every day. It relies on persuasion, influence and generally messing with your logic and the way you think.

Lets establish some test conditions..The "target" (thing I shall try to influence on you will be a number between 1 and 5. Keep its simple. When I ask you to please just THINK of the number..do not write it down..that would be 'remote viewing' and we'll leave that to someone else.

Okay think of a number between one and five for me.

Right..I don't want you thinking I'm just going to guess the most "psychologically appealing" number, or a number that has a special significance to you...So..change the number your thinking of.

Excellent. Now change it again. (You can re-use a number again if you want to)

Great. Change it again

Okay, the number you are thinking of right now..do not change it. Stay with the number

** I now turn on the webcam **

I have an envelope here with 5 bits of card in it. Each card has a number - 1 2 3 4 or 5. And on the back of the envelope I've written the "target" number I've been trying to influence on you. In a second I'm going to show you each numbered card one at a time..and I just want you to say STOP when you see the number you are thinking of...But first..

I wouldn't want you to think I've been bullying you; that I've been forcing you to make quick decisions, that I have been making you think of a certain number. So I'm going to be fair and give you the chance to change your number. Do you want to change your number, or are you happy to stick with the one you are currently thinking of?

Excellent. Now are you ready to see the cards?

*** Show the cards one number at a time. Then when the number is selected (e.g. they said STOP at card 3) ***

Number 3?

*** turn the envelope around to reveal large bold marker printed number 3 on the back of the envelope ***

Excellent. Thanks for helping me try some Mind Control Smile

**************************************

Hope you enjoyed my presentation. I've found that it plays really well over Webcam and IM conversations, and if you're really lazy you can create a text/Word file with the "patter" and merely copy and paste it in a line at a time.

Let me know what you think.
And if you have any tips or suggestions or questions please post them in reply

Perfect! Sounds great. Everyone must have a webcam? Is there a way to do it without one?
Thanks

Only the person doing the effect requires the web cam.

The other person just needs a decent speed intenet connection (so they can see the images) and an instant messager.

I am curious of what people have said online after you do this? Is this friends and family you are doing this for, or are you doing it for random people?

Hey

I've done it mainly to friends. Even those who know I have no "powers" are floored by it. It looks so convicing. I have never tried it with a stranger.

It looks so clean.

Instead of MO's you could use the piece of paper colored black and waxed on the back. Stick it to whichever card they chose.

Hey Xiqual

The effect does not use MO's. The revealed number is always seen to be on the middle of the back of the envelope
