This sounds allot like a landmark work of Joshua Quinn’s.

In fact am a smidge surprised not one poster has made the same observation.

Possibly I am wrong but am willing to bet that is not the case.

Hi Jim,

MENTAL COMMUNICATOR is very different than Joshua Quinns effect from Paralies.

Believe it or not the inspiration for MENTAL COMMUNICATOR was Bob Cassidys Chronologue......which has nothing to do with Mental Communicator....but as I was trying to think of other ways of doing Chronologue....Mental Communicator was born.

Although I did not use anything from Paralies.......I credited Joshua Quinn in the ebook.

Check your PM.

Hello Jim with out a copy of the effect your statement about MC is unfair to the creator.

I agree Vinnie, it might read that way.
Was not my intent.

Was simply my viewpoint formed from what was written on
this thread.
Guess I was wrong.

Alex, offered to send a copy so that I might compare the
two for myself.

But that is unnecessary if it is not the same there is no
reason for me to comment further.

Is good that Joshua, was credited even though
it may not be like his work.

Best Wishes,

Jim

I just read through Mental Communicator. I really like the idea of adding the 'math' to the effect to make it appear more impossible. It also makes the reveal seem much more like mind reading. I put "math" in quotes because, it's barely math. And no, this does NOT play like "math magic". The Grey Elephants effect is nothing like this effect.

Nice work Alex!

Thanks Ben.

Ever since its release last week, I have gotten many ideas from people that are using it.

I am currently working many versions of it......my mind has been spinning nonstop.

In the far future, lookout for a sequel, with many contributions from all over the world.

Thanks

Update:
Just performed this on National television....What can I say, it went great!!

Had someone think of a two digit number, then I had them think of either a country or state, their choice, and then I preceded to blow them away with the revelation!

The host could not see how it was possible, since she didn't jot down the state or country.

FYI

Thanks

Hey guys,

Just got back from a Carnival Cruise, and tried out Mental Communicator on lots of guests......it killed!

I have a new handling to the effect, that I will be adding to the second volume, that requires nothing written down.

Thank you all for the support.

Hello,

To those of you who have this, I am starting work on Mental Communicator 2: It will be called

Communications: A Follow-Up to Mental Communicator

This will have lots of different ideas from the Café members, plus alternate handlings.

If anyone has some ideas that they would like me to include in this new offering, send them to me.

Mental Communicator is becoming my impromptu go to effect anytime anywhere when I am out.
Almost every other day I perform it.

I hope people are using it as much as I am...I am having a lot of fun.

Send me your ideas. PM ME

Based on reviews from some fellow members, Gabe Abelson, Tony Razzano, Paul Carnazzo, Ben Harris, I needed to check this Smile

I see this as a tip to make a huge leap forward to make a disconnection from what happened before and therefore it will seem as you really read the person in the moment.
For everyone who like numbers/time and use them as a talk to engage people this will be a great addition. It's an add-on to performers who create momentum or for people getting started in mentalism that need to believe that there's no problem asking people to write something on a card. (main problem for everyone who starts with peeks - coming from magic it doesn't make sense but with time it will fade away and you start seeing that it's possible with a pen and business card can start a religion/cult).
This is a gem tip that will put you on the moment and make you comfortable performing.

Final word: Very, very nice Alex and for those who read this... Get it.

I have to say the same thought occurred to me.
And I'm glad to hear that they're unrelated effect.

Looking forward to reading this when Circle is released!

Best

Today I begin work on Communications: A Follow-up to Mental Communicator.

Please send me your contributions and ideas, and I will make sure they make it in the book.

You don't really need to have Mental Communicator to read this ebook.

It will have some bits from the original, plus new ideas and handlings.

Thanks

Update:
Just sent Mental Communicator to a famous magician here in Mexico, in which, he will use it in his next TV show in Mexico City.

I use it almost on a daily basis, and the more I perform it, the more I learn about the psychology of the mind and how people will think.

Love it!

Thanks for all the support, and I hope those that purchased this or Circle find some use out of it as I have.
