Just wondering,
if there is teleportation in the art of mentalism?
can I perform it with 2 cars? and a lot of concentration act? then we call it mentalism effect?
or is it still an illusion?

What is the ethic?
I got a job from one of the car companies, they want me to move the cars, or change place. but they also know that I'm a mentalist. they saw me on television doing teleportation with a bill. now they want to do it with their car, is it still mentalism?

Not really, but does it matter to you? Why waste the opportunity?

I know, sounds like a great opportunity. I would do it (if I knew how).

Ask Ted Lesley if teleportation is not good for a mentalist.

I bet Berglas would have done it and not even looked back!
Your "miracle skills" are only as YOU define them. If the car company can give you the budget to pull off the effect (which can be done!), why wouldn't you take the job?
If you decide not to do it, have the car company drop me an email. Smile

IMHO I don't think this is mentalism.
However it will be a good publicity stunt that you can take advantage of.

It's all about how you want others to see you. If you have performed a teleportation effect before then it's because it fits your character, and if you did it with a bill, then a car wouldn't be much of a difference. Smile

You could perform this as a mentalist, if you use some imagination. You could perform mass hypnosis on the audience, saying you will get them to see red as blue an blue as red. You could do this with the same mechanics as the transposition effect, although it would take some very good presentational skills to pull it off. Smile
Look behind you...on your left...thats the real world.

You would probably have to present covering the cars incidentally: you show the cars, you cover them, you talk about how perception is a state of mind, you talk about it's possible to convince a group of people they will see something entirely different from what they know it to be. You tell them they know there is a red car behind this curtain, but you will convince them they will see a different color. (You force someone to choose the color "blue" somehow)--The car will now be blue provided of course they will allow their imagination to be free.

Unveil the car and ask them "Can you see it! Does the car look blue?! If the car is blue, clap!" Get everyone to clap (this of course would be a closer routine).
This is a possible routine, granted of course, you've got diamond hard ...um..nerves.
