I'm already performing some ESP effects (with cards) that I'm happy with (Ben Blau, D. Dyment, D. Humphrey) but I'm looking for a routine that allows me to end with a specific order of symbols (e.g. 1st plus, 2nd star, 3rd circle...) to match a prediction idea that I'm working on.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you, this would work. My idea is to show some old photos of Dr. Rhine at the introduction and for this effect to have the participant deal the symbols in order to later reveal that they match the same order that it was on a table in one of Rhine's photos (like the one attached).

I'm also a fan (and promoter) of the "Perfect ESP" effect; it's the only one other than my own that I use.

Just be aware that it's a different effect from the usual Zener-symbol-matching one. Usually, the participant is the one matching the symbols, but in "Perfect ESP" it's the entertainer doing the matching. This is generally considered a weaker outcome, but this is exactly why I use it as an introduction to my "Bob's Your Uncle".

I really like your approach using zener cards (the reading system for them, etc.) and among other things your work on the magic square which I'm giving it a little bizarre touch (see image... I had to erase the original numbers... just ideas I'm working on) and maybe transform them into "amulets" for using the Box effect in Water's Mind, Myth...

I'll keep playing around this idea of including a reveal using one of the Rhine's experiments photos. I also thought about using a picture frame effect but I'm still thinking and studying.

Best!

In Magic With an ESP Deck by Sam Dalal, he has One in 14400. The outcome you want will be achieved, though you will need table space to lay the cards out.

Thank you! I'm already looking for it. I'll try different alternatives and see what happens.

Best!!
