It is not easy to define, in a few words, Mariano Tomatis, but I want to try: he is a "Curiosity Generator". Because his books, his conferences, and, above all, his "pills" on Youtube (Mesmer in pills) are for me an inexhaustible source of information, culture (magical or otherwise), ideas, and, above all, a continuous stimulus to know, to seek, to try, to create, to "go upstairs".
Two pills, in particular, struck me and interested me (n ° 92: Coin, pen and cell phone, and n ° 228: Seeing with the third eye): once seen, I tried to analyze possible developments, discovering Masters, authors, and principles that I did not know or knew little; I have learned a lot and have always tried to add my contribution.
I started studying the effects with exchanges, with the famous 3 cups by Bob Hummer, passing through countless versions of Rock, Paper & Scissor (Rock, paper and scissors, Roshambo or, in Italian language, the "Chinese Morra"). I have a long list of credits, and I will certainly forget someone, and others I don't know yet: Bob Hummer, and before him Martin Gardner, then Karl Fulves, Harry Lorraine, Banacheck, Peter Wilker, Robert Neale, Simon Aronson, Bruce Bernstein, Max Maven, Aldo Colombini, Didier Duprè, Patrick Froment, Thomas Baxter, Gabriel Werlen, Yves Meret, Pierre Boc, Boyet Vargas, and many others, that I am looking for, studying and that I will soon add to the list.
And, of course, Mariano Tomatis!
