This manuscript is ancestrally related to Criss-Crossings: Unleashing the X-Force insofar as it also deals with cutting cards. In this case, it deals with "cuts" and "turnovers."
This type of combinatorial maneuver began with Henry Christ's forcing technique that he developed in the early 1920s. He originally developed six variations but he only published the fifth one in Ted Annemann's book, Sh-h-h It's a Secret, calling it "The 203rd Force." It subsequently has been referred to as the Christ Force and it spawned many versions and applications.
Because of the cut-?turnover-?and-?replacement mechanics, the Christ Force is often confused with Ed Balducci's Cut-?Deeper Force and vice-versa. This confusion is understandable and is the result of the cross-pollination of ideas.
We hope this manuscript clarifies differences and distinctions and adds additional applications and extensions.
