According to the dictionary, Trialogue means a dialogue between three persons or groups. But here the trialogue is between the past, the present and the future of the participant.
The basic principle is an old classic. But the premise, presentation and props are very novel and have been customized and upgraded for the exclusive use and performance of a mind reader. The final impact is such that it seems like real mind reading to the participant with multiple moments of amazement.
This mind reading miracle consists of a set of 4 cards which you can carry in your wallet or pocket and perform anytime, anywhere to anyone. It is very good for one on one or for a small close up group. There are no sleights, no preshow, no stooges, nothing to reset, instantly repeatable with different outcomes. There is nothing spoken or written down.
The Dead, The Living, The Unborn are equated with the past, the present and the future respectively. The printable props for this are designed and included. An alternate set of cards with the theme of Body, Mind and Soul are also designed and included.
As a precursor to the main routine, you can choose to perform 'SUBCONTEST' - a pseudo test to apparently know the state of the sub conscious mind of the participant. The printable prop for this is also designed and included. In fact, this prop can be used as a 'general test' in almost any mentalism routine.
"Trialogue by the Unknown Mentalist is nifty, an incredibly flexible past-present-future routine. It can play humorously or seriously, as a quick hit or in multiple phases, and big or small. As we've come to expect from the Unknown Mentalist, it uses a clever old-school principle and his signature optical illusions, which will fascinate audiences. I also appreciate his multiple alternative handlings to use as a springboard to making the routine your own. All in all, this is a small winner." - Chris Fisanick
"The effect is pretty cool. The 'focus' card is terrific! I think I get slightly disoriented looking at it. And I also like the optical illusions you've chosen." - Mark Piazza.
"The premise and presentation are right up my alley. I love mental effects that masquerade as readings. The method (with the blank backs) is definitely my preference. I don't think I will use the "so fuc" gag(?) - It wouldn't offend many (and might amuse some). Testing the subconscious would work better for me. Thank you for sending Trialogue. I learned a new word and a very nice effect." - Robin Gillett

This is another great effect by the Unknown Mentalist. I have so many great effects of his that I can't keep up with everything but I know that this will keep the spectators in awe. I will definitely print these cards up in the future.

A big salute to the author! Trialogue is such a wonderfully sculpted routine. For a small one time effort of making up 4 cards, I now have a mind blowing routine in my pocket. This simply kills. The readymade artwork is so creative, the spec is simply taken in by the whole patter, presentation and overall feel. My 'victim' gets nothing short of jaw dropping wonder. I am thoroughly enjoying performing this. My advise - get this now!

I could perform this a few times so far. Always, the reaction has been one of stunned silence. This appears so real. What a fantastic routine !! Very mysterious and unfathomable. The props are ingenious and the test card is fabulous. I will now always have this on me. The entire routine and alternatives are so well structured. Highly recommended.
