Strong, Direct Mentalism with no funny business!
This is more than just predicting 1 out of 3 choices – which is not that magical on a good day – you provide a prediction, of which there is just one, that predicts 3 out of 3 choices.
You predict what goes in the bag, what goes in the spectators hand and what goes in your hand. Every time. The other cool thing about this effect is that it is always ready to work. No set-up at all. Just put the prediction and the wooden disks back in the bag and you are ready to roll. Everything can be examined too!
In fact, it almost sounds too perfect to be true. But it is true. You will like this effect for its clever method and the impact it has on your audience. And I’m sure you will use it often because of its simple requirements and set-up. Highly recommended!
Effect: We all want to believe that we are in control. We want to believe that our decisions are our own. But maybe those are just beliefs….
You begin by removing a small piece of paper from a cloth bag and handing the bag to a helper. You explain that you’d like their help in an experiment involving free will. Your helper removes three wooden disks from the inside of the bag. Each disk has a simple geometric shape on one side. The helper mixes up the disks and then places them face down on the table.
The helper now chooses one disk for himself, one for the performer, and one to be put back in the bag. The choices are always up to the helper and they may change their mind before they commit to the selections.
You now ask one final question to the helper, “Did you feel every choice you made was of your own free will?” The helper responds, “Yes.” The helper now opens the piece of paper which has been on display before ANY choices were made and it explains with complete accuracy where each of the symbols is now located!
A terribly unnerving reminder that the choices we make may not always be our own!
