"We" knew what was coming but the audience did not. He did his effect for the audience and the audience loved it. From what I see he did his "job" perfectly. Maybe we shouldn't be making effects to amaze magicians...mentalists....ETC: and make effects to amaze the audience. Lets face it "people pay us to be amazed. Magicians (for the most part) don't pay to see our shows.

Also I loved it.

It's a tremendous effect. As clean as can be. I prefer it to Copperfield's.

Yes he did get a superb reaction from the audience, and for us in 'the know' it dosen't take a stretch of the imagination to work out how it was accomplished but that isn't my reason for joining in on this thread.

As with most confabulation style demonstrations don't you think this type of effect is just too fantastic? Does a lay audience believe the performer is manipulating the audiences mind to bring forth the correct numbers, performed a clever trick they can't explain and don't give it a sesond thought accepting it was just a trick, or believe the performer is a genuinely gifted psychic?

The question is what do you think goes through an audience's mind with a demonstration so fantastic?

I think it depends...a) it depends on the audience members beliefs, and b) it depends on how the mentalist is framing all his work...

they might just see it as a frightening coincidence?!

as it was his opener, perhaps he goes onto explaining what he was doing, as in, subtle influence or whatever else...

I will admit...I was blown away when I saw that...I know how confabulation routines work, but that is a lottery ticket from where I am from and I have no idea how he did that...I am "in the know", but I have no idea how that could happen...and I am not ashamed to admit that. I love the feeling of astonishment & I cherish it. He must have a mini computer in his pocket with mini printer and mini monitor, plus mini keyboard. My point...I couldn't re-create such an official looking lottery ticket, how could any of you. If you can send me your best efforts...PM me for my address. I think this kid is the bee's knees!

Hi Nathan
You say you love the feeling of astonishment & cherish it, if that is the case why would you want someone to PM you to spoile the illusion?

Just one hint and I'm not going to give anything away, just think how you would go about it to accomplish the same demonstration under the same conditions. If you still cannot work it out, your mentalism knowledge is not complete.

Screw that...that is a genuine lottery ticket...make me a copy, that looks like an original & mail it to me. Until then your counterfeiting techniques are not complete. Plus re-read my post, you misunderestimated me!

Hah!

I see your rest & raise you a BS! I just got a PM from a very well known professional mentalist, who also didn't know how it was done. He found out by holding Nate at gunpoint, so save your BS for someone who gives a S.

Considering who it is...that **** is hilarious...you are all a bunch of liars...you have no idea how it is done...Nate does, his wife does, and my secret friend does...you don't! All this smoke going up my *** is uncomfortable, would you all quit blowing it.
