I know this is not anything to do with current affairs but I will post it here anyway Smile

This is what I decided would be the effect that went into Dale's book Smile

You guys are the first to get a peek at it Smile

Mind Map

Effect:

The performer introduces a wooden box and places it on display on a near by table. He then invites a subject onto the stage and asks him if he's happy to participate in an experiment between two minds. After the subject has agreed, the performer asks the subject to ensure he never says anything out loud, never nods and that he stays as in animate as possible.

The performer explains to the subject that every time he touches the air (like he's drawing a full stop) the subject is to think of a different letter of the alphabet.

The performer starts to touch the air (he never draws letters, just literally makes full stops in different parts of the air). The performer never says anything during this process, it's just mind to mind.

He tells the subject to think stop on an invisible letter (remember the subject is never going to nod, move or say anything). The performer makes a notion of wiping the air clean as though they really were letters in the air. The performer now draws an invisible world map in the air and asks the subject to merely think of a country starting with that letter.

(Remember he has never said anything out loud and had free choice of any letter).

He is to imagine travelling to that country, walking into a gift shop and bringing one gift back from his mental journey.

The subject is now asked to say where he went and what gift he brought back.

He says “Holland” and “Clogs”

The box is opened and sure enough inside is a pair of clogs, with the word Holland engraved in them!

No Pre-show, the subject never writes anything, free choice of any letter (therefore it could be any country) and there is no instant stooging.

P.s You never touch the box once it is placed on the table!

:D cheese!

Peter touched on this during our marathon Skype session.

I'd like to think I was the inspiration for Holland and Clogs Smile but I doubt it.

Only 75 copies printed. I don't miss the boat often, but this boat sailed well before I boarded. That's for sure.

I remember a fairly high price tag and Peter was fairly unknown at the time. I took a chance because I sensed something special about Pete. So glad I bought Bigger Fish (worth every penny) and helps make up for some other not so good purchases.
