Would you like to be able to connect with someone on a purely mental level? Monks in India have reportedly been able to meditate and attain a trance-like state that allows them to tap into someone else's consciousness. With cerebral connection, you will be able to display your monk-like properties, and in the process, amaze your spectator with something that cannot be explained.
You write something down on a piece of paper. It is a number between 1 and 100. You leave this paper face down on a table. You will not touch this paper, ever again...and it will not be switched. This paper is your prediction. You then give another piece of paper that has 100 numbers written on it. These numbers are 1 through 100, each written one time.
The spectator tears the paper into hundred pieces with one number on each piece. Going through a simple and randomized selection procedure the spectator picks one number. You immediately instruct her to turn-over the prediction paper that has been lying on the table, all this time! Amazingly, it says "you will pick 28"! This is just an example. You can also do this with words or thoughts. The effect is simply unexplainable.
Essentially this is a clever force that can be expanded to anything you can write on a piece of paper.
