Memory & Mnemonics

With the right system you can learn to memorize and remember long lists of names, phone numbers or any other set of data you need to recall quickly and remember for a long time. These mnemonic systems are not just wonderful to help you in your daily lives, but are great techniques to perform unbelievable mental feats. A mnemonic system is great if you want to memorize a card stack (see Stacks: Memorized & Algorithmic), or a prompter list. The name that has dominated this field over many years is Dominic O'Brien.

Bob Cassidy

Mind Explosions by Bob CassidyMind Explosions is about closers, the routines which will leave your audience laughing, crying, awestruck, applauding, or sleeping. The two routines, "The Number of the Beast", and "Checkmate" begin as traditional, albeit very impressive, demonstrations of lightning calculation and memory. Both end with an unexpected synchronistic twist that leaves audiences stunned.

If you have ever performed the super memory effect or "The Knight's Tour", you already know that they are classic effects that are effective before any intelligent audience. In Mind Explosions you will learn a method of performing...

Charles Gauci

Hypno-Dream and The Power Within Programs by Charles GauciThe Hypno-Dream Program

For over fifty-eight years Charles Gauci has applied the principles contained in this program to help him achieve tremendous world wide success both as a hypnotist and a mentalist. He explains:

  • Why Positive Thinking fails 95% of the time when applied.
  • The Law of Reversed Effort. Why the harder we try the less we succeed.
  • Why, when the Will Power and the Belief System are in conflict the Belief System always wins.
It includes a download MP3 audio file (download from your digital shelf) which will re-program your subconscious mind. The audio file is specifically...

Chris Wasshuber

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End by Chris Wasshuber
"I will sum up your Knight's Tour routine as follows, IT IS BRILLIANT!" - David Burmeister
In the late 1980s I developed a method for the Knight's Tour which allows a spectator a truly free choice for the starting square and ending square of opposite color (same color start and end is mathematically impossible).

This manuscript describes in detail this method. The method attempts to minimize memorization and teaches you a system to derive a proper complete tour on the spot. The method is so flexible that you can find several different tours for one pair of start and end points. Of course,...

Chris Wasshuber

Two Person Code For One Person by Chris WasshuberThis is a system to easily remember one or two cards, say two key cards, and not forget them during the performance of your routine. It is not an associative memory system.

Some card routines, particularly the recently published ones in Sunken Treasury by Nick Conticello require one to remember two key cards. In the heat of performing such an effect these can be forgotten, rendering the trick a failure. This system allows you to easily keep track of one or two or more cards that you want to remember.

There is very little to learn for this system. Reading this manuscript should be enough to put this system to work....

David M. Roth

Roth Memory Course by David M. RothThis is a wonderful course in seven lessons to improve your memory. It covers all fundamentals and shows how to apply these mnemotechnic tools to remember for example names, faces, spelling and numbers. It also gives applications for magic tricks. You will learn how to memorize a shuffled deck of 52 cards or how to remember the knight tour on the chess board. It is likely that Roth was a magician himself, since he mentions his friend Henry Hatton from Magicians' Tricks fame. Dai Vernon learned from this course and mentions it on the Revelations video tapes.

Written in 1918 and as good as any book on 'how to improve your memory'...

David Malek

The Instant Memory System by David MalekStarting from the latest brain research and the latest insights of how our mind functions, combining those with years of professional experience and understanding of people, David Malek has distilled a recipe to memorization that is both simple to learn and effective to use.

Obviously David Malek has anchored his method in techniques known for a long time, but with his keen insight and understanding of the human mind, David has fashioned a truly practical method for those who think such memory systems are either way too hard to learn or not effective.

I've Got Your Number by Devin Knight
"This is another powerful idea from Devin. Now, it is unusual and not something you would be doing in a show. But, if you want to make an impact with a client, or future client, then this is something you can learn and put in your personal arsenal. I'm sure many workers will want to add it into their memory banks of things they can use to look like memory experts." - Greg Arce

"As a veteran performer of over 17 years as the house mentalist at Magic Island in Houston, TX, I had been using the old Paul Linder version sparingly because of the possibility of repeating the same number for two...

E. W. Scripture

Arithmetical Prodigies by E. W. ScriptureArithmetical Prodigies by E.W. Scripture is a remarkable paper about remarkable people. Published in 1891, it gives the first comprehensive account of those individuals who have displayed an astonishing capacity for mental calculation. The numerous and fascinating biographies alone make this work a 'must read' for anyone with a taste for the curious and sensational. The paper can also lay claim to being one of the first works of popular psychology. Its style - essentially that of a treatise that reads like a novel - has been replicated right through to the present day. In short, Scripture's...

Super Memory List: print and perform 1 by George Marchese("Print and Perform" is a new magic series that will enable you to easily build yourself beautiful tricks just printing them.)

EFFECT:

You, the memory-man, demonstrate to really have a super memory. You show to the audience a sheet of paper containing a list of 50 six-digit numbers. You declare that you have committed to memory the full list. The six digit numbers are identified by ciphers from 1 to 50. The identifying ciphers are scrambled to make it more difficult memorizing the associated six digit number. Three or more spectators, in turn, choose and announce one identifying figure...

George Parker Bidder

On Mental Calculation by George Parker BidderGeorge Parker Bidder is one of history's greatest mental calculators. In the early 19th century he toured Britain as a 'calculating boy'. The amazing demonstrations he gave caught the attention of eminent scholars who offered to fund his education. Bidder went on to become one of the leading engineers of his time. His position as vice president of the Institution of Civil Engineers afforded him the opportunity to speak openly about his views on mental calculation in a lecture to fellow members of the institution. That lecture, given in 1856, is the subject of this document. In it, Bidder describes...

Perpetual Calendar on a Sticker by Grant Stuart & Chris WasshuberQuickly find the weekday to any date between 1500 and 2299.

You will receive a perpetual Gregorian calendar, covering the years from 1500 - 2299, which is printed on one self-adhesive label of size 2.25" x 4" (54 mm x 100 mm). Below the calendar table are the instructions in three lines of text. If you do not need the instructions simply cut them off.

The sticker fits nicely on a case for a deck of playing cards, with the instruction portion bent over the lower edge. (See the photo.) Thus, the calendar fits without the instructions on the back of a poker-size playing card. The calendar...

Effect: The mentalist thoroughly shuffles a set of 26 letter cards (the complete alphabet). One unidentified card is removed from the deck. Then three members of the audience divide the rest of the pack among themselves, shuffle their hands and call out in turn the letters they are holding.

Now,

  1. the performer correctly names the single card originally removed from the pack.
  2. he recites the sequence of the cards held by each of the helpers.
  3. the deck having been reassembled, he tells from...

Luke Jermay

The Amazing Memory Test by Luke JermayFrom the introduction:

In ‘Step Three – Mental Systems’ of the seminal work Thirteen Steps To Mentalism written by the legendary Corinda, he clearly states the value he placed upon memory systems:

To the mentalist, Memory Systems are indispensable; they are part of his equipment and the means whereby he can be called upon to perform at any time – and give an impressive demonstration. They are the best type of equipment you can have, as there is nothing to carry and no apparatus to prepare. The skill lies in the training of the mind, in conditioning the mind to operate to maximum...
