Here is a small challenge.
can this principle be applied and make a magic trick? notice I didn't say an ***entertaining*** magic trick:

Obviously you can use it to force a number, but even then I think most people would be suspicious of the long process required.
It's an interesting theorem - I've never seen it before.

I know this is an old thread but maybe this will help to give it a try and think about it:

Thanks fowill for that.

We might create the grounds for a magical effect through using objects that have spellings of differing length. Rather than use words directly it would be more subtle to move upon the back of the associated images. For example we might have the images printed on cards.

So for a basic prediction of 25....

Nice idea and as this is a less known principle I think it would be very interesting to give it a try. I'll play around with this and see how it works.

Best!
