The latest edition of Morgan Strebler-Ice Cold is available now at Mentalism Center. I have seen Morgan applying these techniques and it absolute creates a psychic impression. Practical, no BS and controversial approaches to read anyone, anytime.

So this started of as a limited batch of 100 hardcover books and has now been updated and for sale as an unlimited e-book?

Also Pablo, seeing your comment down below about the hardcover book, it is hard for me to imagine that this e-book is suddenly a great thing and linked to your mentalismcentre website.

It looks like some performers are out there not to fool laymen but to fool hobby magicians/mentalists....

Oh, I have more or less read this thread now. I watched some videos of various alleged worthies who gave me the creeps. This seems to be the philosophy of amazing rather than the philosophy of helping. In other words "the man who knows" approach instead of "the man who cares". It seems like a mentalist doing tricks rather than a psychic doing readings. I have a feeling this has very little do to with readings at all. A decent psychic reader does NOT try to amaze his clients. That is the sign of a stupid magician trying to be a psychic. No. A decent psychic tries to help his client. This is nothing to do with psychic readings despite the mention of tarot cards, rune stones etc;. Weirdos staring at a client to freak them out or make them cry is hardly a spiritual experience.

Sorry. I am not convinced.



Golden words.

I remember reading this thread when the book first came out. I was tempted by the rather effective marketing hype, but did not bite. Since I don't think anyone has praised this book since the thread was new, I wonder why it is being marketed again.

Humberto Maturana is a Chilean Biologist, Cybernetician, Scientist - invented his theory of autopoiesis following in the pathways of Bateson, Wittgenstein, the social ‘ricorso’ of Vico, the self-production notion of Paul Weiss, and many others. He has spent his career elaborating this theory within a biological research programme in his laboratory in Santiago [above which was written ‘Experimental Epistemology Lab’]. Known world-wide as Humberto {except in Italy where he is ‘Umberto’}, he continues to elaborate his theory generating experimental evidence for the thesis that reality is a consensual communal construction while appearing to be ‘objectively’ existing. The notion of ‘objectivity’ is replaced by that of ‘constructivism’.

The contribution of Humberto Maturana , National Award in Biological Sciences 1994 , to the sciences of complexity is recognized; as well as his influence on the thought and research of many scientists related to them. When at the end of his life Bateson was asked who could continue with the study of the “Creature” , the world of living beings, he answered that the center for this analysis was now in Santiago de Chile, in charge of a man by the name of Humberto Maturana . In the same vein theoreticians and psychotherapists such as Guidano and Arciero, while referring specifically to Maturanas’ views, name him as the “Chilean School”. The most significant contributions to the sciences of complexity , have been the rejection of objective rationalism and representation in cognitive theories, the self-referentiality of all adaptation and knowledge, the emphasis of language on the construction of human experience and the involvement of knowledge with the total being, which challenges traditional dualism between mind and brain viewed as separate in the past.

He propose 3 new "human rights"
1. Right to be wrong
2. Right to change my mind
3. Right to get out of any place and don't offend anyone.






In a more precise note, I understand the noise regarding "limited release" but Morgan during the process fixed various details with this book (the first printed copies were incorrect and also this "limited release" tag).

I bought it when it came out and was ultimately disappointed and sorry I bought it. I think anyone who writes a book deserves credit for finishing it, so I'll give Morgan that. His mom was ill at the time, so I understood that his deadline was hard to meet. It was clearly supposed to be a limited edition and clearly isn't. Frankly, I'm disturbed that, according to Pablo, that Morgan 'fixed various details with this book (the first printed copies were incorrect and also this "limited release" tag).' I received no addendum for any mistakes in my edition, but, hell, I didn't receive the Tarot deck he was going to send. I wasn't happy after the book came out in DVD form either.

I looked for my in depth review and can't find it. Too bad because I spent a lot of time writing it so others could have a better idea than I did when I bought it. I was unsatisfied, it was expensive, but, I'm a big boy and nobody forced me to buy the book. It was my mistake, but now, when I see that Morgan has published something or put out a new product I can't bring myself to buy it, even if it has gotten good reviews. Fooled me once shame on you, fooled me twice, shame on me.

All this said, there was some good information in the book, but I heard disturbing things about cutting and pasting. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S TRUE. Ultimately I have also decided that, while there is a place for cold reading, in the end, if you're going to do readings, forget the tricks and manipulation, learn an Oracle and do them for real.
