Is it too early to ask if Psychologica made its way to purchasers or not yet?

Yeah, no confirmation. It just shows up after some time. Good thing these are already shipping. So hopefully the wait will not be long.

I've just recieved it here in France.
Despite the bad reviews I've read on the net, the first quick read shows it is very good. It is a great example of the difference between magicians and lay people thinking. The effect is a subtle convergence of sleight of hand and advanced psychological methods. I know the last will maybe disappoint some magicians who will discard this material. For sure, I will study it thoroughly.
There is some nice research credits to go further, mainly understanding deeply what is teached. Being fooled by the apparent simplicity of the material is a risk. But as everybody knows, achieving simplicity is the hardest. Only the core remains, and so it must be near perfect.
Highly recommanded.

Mine arrived today but I have not had the time to go through the material, just a quick glance. I'm off from work on Friday so this is what I plan to read/study.

Rachmaninov,
Where was this reviewed on the internet?

According to his email, Psycholoica is:

PSYCHOLOGICA

Bending reality through principles of deception and magic




The performer legitimately mixes a deck of cards face-up and face-down (so that they are in a complete mess), the spectator now takes the deck, and the performer never touches the deck again. The spectator also shuffles the cards face-up into face-down and even looks down to see the chaotic mess of cards spread between their hands! They think of a playing card, and still without the performer touching the deck, every card goes the same way except for the card they were thinking of!!! While the deck is in their hands! WTF?! Yes.

This is real magic… with an ordinary deck!

'Psychologica' doesn't feel like a standard 'Triumph' routine; it feels like a deeply powerful moment of mind-control, fused with visual and mental magic. It's the most powerful and perfect 'Triumph' effect imaginable; I wanted the spectator to handle the cards themselves, shuffle the deck, look through the cards (genuinely seeing that they are hopelessly mixed) and without the performer touching the deck, the cards all go the same way except for a card they were just thinking of! This sounds completely impossible, but this is exactly what 'Psychologica' achieves.

Forget every other version of 'Triumph' you've ever seen; 'Psychologica' is a completely impossible deception game, a devious effect, which looks and feels like real magic while pushing 'Triumph' into brand new deceptive territory.

No table, no difficult techniques, no gaffed cards or gimmicks and no bad angles. It can be done with a borrowed, shuffled deck if you want. This routine isn't a pipe-dream; it has been developed and refined over many years of performance in the real world. I have used this routine at professional engagements for many years, but more interestingly… it is one of my favourite 'go-to' effects in a private, informal environment when I want to do something sensational.

Even though I have kept 'Psychologica' a closely guarded secret for many years, a very famous magician (who uses it constantly), virtually begged me to keep it a secret and not release it! But like I said to him, "If you want to keep something secret… then put in print!"

I'm curious too, where is the bad review of Psychologica?

I'm sorry, I've tried to find the bad review, a single one actually, and I can't manage to retrieve it. Bad comments were more again Fiction than Psychologica.

Anyway, I really think it is very good, although too expensive. Obviously Ben is trying to make money at this time.
