I'm trying to form a list of the themes you can use to perform Mentalism that goes away from the psychic or any spiritual route, and more towards logic and science.

Here's what I got so far.

1. Body Language
2. Subliminal Messages
3. Subconscious
4. Hypnosis/Suggestion
5. Deductive reasoning


Please don't be shy to add on to the list.

Here's a few more for your list:

Inductive reasoning
Classical conditioning
Operant conditioning
Latent learning
State dependent learning
Gender-role socialization
Collective unconscious
Spreading activation
Illusory correlation
Defense mechanisms (e.g., projection, repression)
Preconscious
Selective attention
Memory displacement

You could find many other possibilities in an introductory psychology text as well.

The original list of 5 pretty much covers it imo.

- The learning pentagram, that's a kind of learning pyramid
- Morphogenetic resonance / morphogenetic fields

These themes are such absurd themes, that the spectators will know it's not real - it's a trick.

I like how Paul Brook in The Alchemical Tools asks: Can you live your art form? (pg 95).

This is helping me to be congruent with who I am and what I can do. I am not there yet, but it helps in being able to tie everything together. GREAT BOOK!

Exactly where I saw it.

I said "rarely"...

Not "never"...

Very true!

And its opposite too!
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!
