A dramatic test in remote viewing.
Effect: A little book is shown to have different capital cities written on it’s pages. The mentalist explains that these are places that he would like to visit in the future. A participant is asked to randomly select a page, and choose one of the cities he sees. The mentalist, without any fishing of any kind, announces the correct city being thought of. The participant then thinks of a freely selected place within the city and this is, once again, correctly deduced by the mentalist. As a final climax, the participant thinks of something associated with his chosen country. The mentalist then uncovers something which has been on display all the time, the very same thing that the participant pictured in his mind.
This is an effect Daniel invented quite some time ago, however, it was only released to a select few. It won't make you look like Derren Brown on TV, but it IS a practical routine, and it DOES get very good reactions. Not only do you get the main effect, but lots of other ideas using this same principle. Daniel will not give you a load of hype, he wants you to trust him and what he is saying. It does rely on some dual reality, so if that's not your cup of tea, don't buy this. However, having said that, unlike many dual reality effects, there's still something magical happening for the participant. He/she will experience an effect as well, which is pretty much the same as what the audience sees. The effect in itself is well suited for a parlour sized audience, but can easily be performed close-up or on stage.
