Cristobal, you may have been being sarcastic. I was serious. We SHOULD never stop learning. The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing, as Socrates probably didn't say.

I like Socrates, he was one of the best Brasilian football player I have ever seen!

I spent a lot of time going over this last night.

I believe I have a way to perform this to one person.
(Even using playing cards rather than my preferred photographs.)
and the person would get just as big an effect as if he was watching it performed to somebody else.

It requires only a little tweaking.
The whole effect is more involved, and, by combining this with another effect I could perform it over the phone. By email, SMNS Skype etc.

He was brilliant, but I'll curse him to my dying day for his part in Brazil's lucky win over Scotland in 1982!

All four of their goals were flukey, including the free kick that curled into the top corner from 25 yards.

Having just watched the highlights of the match on YouTube, I can only think that your reporting of this match involves a hefty dose of DR Smile

LOL!!!

Indeed. But I have found a way to tweak the highlights which makes them play as a glorious Scottish victory when shown one on one to a single spectator.

I like your sense of humour.

I guess it could only be performed for those who had not seen the game, and were oblivious to any subtle tell-tale nuances that could give the game away (so to speak)
So basically only good for performing to Americans Smile

Quite. It can only work for spectators with little or no knowledge of the game of football. I only perform it for Americans or Glasgow Rangers supporters.

We've derailed this thread somewhat, sorry.
Back on topic.
I am happy with my purchase of Memoria.
I may not present it word-for-word as it is outlined (and we should all put our own spin on any effect we purchase) But it's not too far away from how Fraser Parker intended it.

Quite right Steve. Back on topic. In your tweaked single spectator version of Memoria, does the spectator now experience the major Memoria effect or an enhanced "mundane" effect? I can certainly see several ways to do the latter,, but if it is the former I would say you have created a new and much stronger effect which I would certainly be interested in purchasing! Despite you mocking the sporting abilities of my beautiful homeland.

Not mocking at all.
Probably a side effect of those rose tinted spectacles you must have been wearing in 1982. Smile

Yes they experience a major effect.

If we use photos or something like tarot cards we can get a direct hit with the memory most of the times. Don't you think?

Steve was kind enough to share with me some thoughts on his "tweaked" Memoria. I think these ideas, even at the early "off the top of the head" stage are considerably stronger than the released Memoria effect.

In fact, given that he has got rid of the two elements that Mr Parker states constitute his effect in the ebook, I would argue that Steve isn't actually performing Memoria at all and should consider tweaking his effect further and releasing it. I'm sure he'll be much too modest to agree.

(Steve also almost nailed me with one of his own effects but luckily he missed, (due to my incompetence) so my sanity and disbelief in DR as a close up one-on-one technique has survived! If only he hadn't tempted me with naked women on horseback...)

I have worked out a version of this using only words to make it work. This is the perfect arrangement for this effect and how I now personally use the concept. NO words are written down. This makes the DR fit even better now, also allowing for a real memory to be revealed.

Others have already sent their ideas and praise for the original version of this. They have found it can be used in many different ways, not only how I teach it in the manuscript. The use of real impressions can also be included to make this even stronger for the person taking part.

The newer version will be sent out soon to all of those who have already purchased this effect. In the meantime, if you pm with the last three words from the original manuscript, as proof of purchase, I will send out the update to you early.

Fraser.

The original of this, IMHO was well worthy of the price.
And the fact that it can be customised by each performer, I see as a plus point.

I look forward to reading the update.

If I may, Fraser, I'll pm you my tweaks that I find help make this fit my style.
