Harry H,

Yes, no doubt some such similar principle to the Mind's Eye Deck was used. There's some information on the clever subtleties he's using on Andy Nyman's International Magic Lecture video.

It's not quite dual reality, not quite single reality.

Hope that helps... Smile

Scott.

I'm sure that Marc Paul used a hard-backed book for the test he did; is this possible? I have his manuscript and had always assumed otherwise. It would look too obvious, the method being too inflexible....

I did this once, worried about exactly that. It's not much of a problem as long as you hold onto just the pages, and not the hardback cover of the whole thing.

Curt,

Yeah... dual reality is p**-s*** (when used to its maximum potential).

And yes, Mind's Eye Deck was used to select her symbol.

What's stronger? "Earlier you thought of a symbol..." or "I want you to see clearly in your mind an image of a symbol..."

What made me say 1.5 reality is that Max's language is more ambiguous as to what the situation is, in terms of when the decision was made to the choice of symbol. Neither here nor there. "You wrote nothing down..." etc.

Let me get this straight,as it isn't in my mind at least.She actually used the ME deck.But she clearly said she hadnt done anything other than think of a symbol.I thought maybe the ME deck principle could be added to in order to achieve the effect.So it was just pre show work?

"But she clearly said she hadnt done anything other than think of a symbol"

Then you're falling (for want of a better word) for the verbal ambiguity.

Again, if you've seen the Andy Nyman Lecture Video (It might be on Get Nyman! too, I don't know – I haven’t seen it) you'll understand what I mean.

In that case, you probably would not have seen it anyway because it would have been edited out Smile That's the "power" of television!

But, yes, it takes good spectator's management skills to nullify the probability of something like that to happen and, I'm sure we all agree, Max Maven IS a master at that.

She wouldn't even have to take a card though, even pre show...she might have just said stop and looked at the card with the symbol on it.
it is all very clever! remember if its too good to be true...it is! come on guys we do magic, we know that he he!

I just find it so funny that people who have the Minds Eye Deck see a slick performance with it and it goes straight over their heads.

I always thought that coming up with something that fooled magicians/mentalists would be difficult, I now see how wrong I was.

I'd really be scared to see performances by some of those on here.

Why would anyone assume that my television performance made use of something I've taught?

The "Mind's Eye Deck" is available from some dealers. I'm sure it can be found with a simple Internet search.

Nice to have you on here Max.I did say that I thought the effect was similiar to Minds Eye deck;but Imstill not convinced it utilised that prop.Your answer makes me think I was right.

I actually did not see the show, Max. My comment was brought up by some other people here guessing pre-show or not...

As to why *I* would assume that you could use something you've taught... it's simply because you are sneaky enough to do that Smile Smile

Why some of the others here did also assume that, it's not my answer to give, but theirs!

We didn't "see" a performance with the deck though so although it had the look of the trick without considering pre-show it seemed like something else.Incidentally does anyone market the MInds Eye Deck?
