If you buy the book Mind Warp by Richard Marks,
you will be able to make his version of the Alan Shaxon
no force Mental Epic.

A superb idea, works like a charm.

Cheers.

I think Joe calls it "Supreme Slate of Mind" and it costs $250.00. For that price I can point you to several much more effective presentations and save you a few dollars to kick my way as a bribe.

The best "no force" version I've come across is Stephen Minch's "Mindcast" from his book "Mind Melds".
Unlike many of the special boards sold for this effect the props in this are very innocent in appearance and you can make it up yourself for a few dollars.

Richard osterlind does a nice variation on the typical mental epic with his "Change of Mind" as performed and taught on his Mind Mysteries DVDs. Instead of using coin values, you can use names, cards, places, etc. And all you need is a scratch pad.

Thanks.

Oops, typed my question in the wrong spot. Where can I find "Mind Warp"?

Yep, but Osterlind's version still requires a force. I'm interested in "Confabulation", but can't find it. Also, is the version in Mind Warp a slate version or does the prediction end up in the wallet (Confabulation-like)?

Mind warp is available from Magic Books by Post. If you live in the UK,
Lee Earle. If you want to be kind and give him some money, he deserves it. Hank Lee- for the American in you!

Is Mind Warp usable in close-up? Also any idea where "Confabulation" can be found?

The routine from Mind Warp uses a whiteboard that you make up.

It is basically stand-up. I use it solely for trade shows, because you can theme it,
and it's visual to draw a lot of people.

I learnt Confabulation from the Ron Wilson book, "The Uncanny Scot" By Richard Kaufman.

Cheers.

Confabulation is a means not an end. In fact, this isn't the routine your looking for. <--Did my Jedi mind trick work?

Timothy Wenk has a version called "Throw Away Mental Epic" from his early lecture notes. It is tied in with another effect called "Tune Psychometry". Together these routines are Anneman caliber. Very powerful.

Hi,

Marc Spelmann has a great confabulation routine on his upcoming DVDs! He includes some very nice touches.

Regards,

Peter

P.S. We do have the Supreme Slate of Mind in stock!

Dr.,

I know it's a means and not an end. Although I do not doubt your competency as a Jedi master, I'm still looking for a no-force triple prediction which will work in close-up.

So, can you tell me in all honesty that Confabulation is NOT what I'm looking for?
Anyhow, I don't find it. I mailed to Mr. Shaxon, but get no reply.

Ah, well...

Confabulation was a Ken Brooke item sold back in 1970's. I bought one then and still use it in my shows.

Instead of a carbon copy prediction, I now can have the spectator actually open the envelope and read the actual hand written prediction.

Al Koran was the first to do this effect called "The dream car", which was a big hit in his shows.

For a no-force triple prediction, take a look at Bob Cassidy's fourth dimensional telepathy from his Mental Miracles video Fourth Dimensional Telepathy. You reveal the name of a childhood friend, the name of a pet, and reproduce a previously drawn illustration.

This is an excellent routine.

OK, so I guess I'll go for Cassidy and Stephen Minch.
Can these things be done close-up ? Do they reset easily ?
Thanks for the help !
