Hi friends,

It is a principle devised for locating cards by karl Fulves and later improvised by james randi.

Further details can be found in Karl Fulves - The Shamrock Code & The Parallel Principle
“It’s not what you do that matters, or even how you do it;
it’s what the spectators perceive you as doing that matters.
That’s the MAGIC they’ll remember.”

It's known to most people as clocking the deck. Fulves didn't invent it (it's in many old books), but he certainly improved it at the time (1979). Harry Lorayne also has some "must read" material on this (predating the two Fulves books). I have additional work on the subject, going beyond Fulves work; this can be found in my Tricyclic book.

Curiously, a few interesting effects using this principle have been published in recent years, and their authors obviously had not keep abreast of the field, as the effects are taught using old (pre-1979) implementations of the idea.

This section of the Café deals primarily with memorized stack magic (or at least somewhat elaborate set ups). It's pointless to clock if one already has the cards in a memorized order. You might find more success in the Workers section.
