is a psychological technique. It's a subtlety that is not 100% sure fire, but when you get the technique down and you hit, you'll know it.
Imagine placing one card on the table, face down. The spectator decides on a card, they turn over the card to reveal a perfect match. The place explodes.
Imagine holding your wallet in full view and asking a spectator to name a card. The card is then instantly pulled from your wallet.
Imagine something that you can carry with you always, to create impossible, unbelievable prop-free demonstrations with boundaries as limitless as your imagination.
This is Anate.
There is no indexing, no gimmicks, no stacks, no nothing. All you need is a single playing card, or a maximum of four cards in your wallet, or maybe a post-it note to write a prediction.
The reviews speak for themselves. As mentioned before, this is a psychological technique. With the correct study and performance you will blow people's minds, it's not for everyone... Is it for you?
"Dee Christopher has an applied sense of a linguistic principle here not unlike my own. His approach in this work is one to which I not only relate, but applaud." - Kenton Knepper (Miracles of Suggestion, Wonder Words, Kollosal Killer)
"Dee Christopher is of a new breed of mentalists who transcend contrivance and hack the human brain itself to create deception." - Andrew Mayne (Ghost Vision, Third Eye, Social Distortion)
"This is insanely awesome. It's something that's so simple you'll smack yourself for not thinking of it. I will definitely be using this." - Matt Mello (Bullet, Instict, Technique)
" 'scuse my language but you clever b*stard! That is extremely good!! Why the hell didn't I think of that?" - Ken Dyne (Drawing in the Dark, Thoughts so far)
"Well Thought Out, Cleaverly Ingenoius method.. This is the Trick that really killed kolossal!" - Eric Ross (Election, Canfuse)
"I have worked for years to be able to place a single card face down on a table and have the spectator name it and never hit the nail on the head.
Dee took a sledge hammer and forced the nail right though the wood with this one. This is the most stunning mental effect I do and the best mental release of 2009!" - Alan Rorrison (Fingers of Fury, Digital Divination, Sigillum Diaboli)
"I've been using Anate for about two weeks now among friends, and co-workers and I must say that when this effect is done properly; it slays.
No card indexes, no setups and the most bare bones blazing subtle force I've ever used create a spellbinding moment that has left my audiences grasping for comment. Simply brilliant!" - Wayne Phelps (Masters of Illusion)
"ANATE is, in my eyes, the most devious piece of subterfuge Dee has released. Do yourself a favour, get this before everybody else does, and be truly amazing!" - Chris Lafferty (Freezer Burn, Attack, UVT)
