Ken Muller
Grandma Choice by Ken Muller

A small group mentalism demonstration.

This is a telepathy acuity test for 4-6 participants using colored stones, buttons, dominoes, or any objects of distinct identity. An ideal routine to acquaint spectators with mentalism and telepathic possibilities, leading to more profound experiments.

You orchestrate a demonstration of latent paranormal abilities using simple objects and an innocent random selection process. All participants test their ability in making intuitive guesses as to the location of hidden objects. The results are better than chance and usually very astonishing/profound....

Dibya Guha
Hitchcocked by Dibya Guha

Hitchcocked is a collection of two fun-filled mentalism pieces based on the famous movies of Hitchcock. These effects are real-world workers and have been perfected through tons of performances. The 2 effects in this PDF are:

  1. Ring and Rope Prelude: A great prelude to your ring & rope routine based on Hitchcock.
  2. Hitchcock Prediction: A comedy Prediction routine wherein the prediction of a Hitchcock movie apparently turns out to be a gag. However, the performer proves that he had indeed been able to forecast the spectator's thought well in advance, in a most humorous manner.

The main effects are all deckless card mentalism effects, where a physical deck of cards is not used. The bonus effects are for those who want to use a physical deck of cards, anyways.

The Mind Reader by Edward Bagshawe

Print and Perform.

One of the advantages of the following effect lies in its absurd simplicity of operation. Quite a change from some of the "mentally selected" card effects you may have run across.

Briefly, the effect can be stated as follows. A sealed envelope is first given into the keeping of a member of the audience. Two printed slips of paper (ready to print for you), each bearing the names of cards, are given to a second spectator, who is asked to examine them and note that the names of all the fifty-two cards have been listed upon them. The spectator mentally selects one of the...

Close Call by Ken MullerA profound demonstration of psychic or paranormal acuity utilizing a single volunteer while engaging the entire audience.

It is ideal as an introduction to any mentalism act in which spectator participation and rapt attention is critical, but can also work as a stand-alone presentation or a transition from conjuring to mentalism. You leave the audience in a state of stunned silence, trust and respect. There are no tricks - nothing to learn - no practice (not possible, actually). It is real. This is a natural, innate ability of all humans demonstrated in a dramatic way.

The Study of Trance Muscle Reading by George Miller Beard

From the preface:

The following narratives and analyses of facts relating to the investigation of important and interesting phenomena of the nervous system are published in the belief that they will be new, in whole or in part, to the majority of neurologists and practitioners, both in Europe and America.

Some of the facts connected with the detailed history of muscle-reading are here put on permanent record for the first time, and have been obtained partly from memory and partly from public and private documents in my possession.

It is interesting and incredible that these phenomena...

Psychology of Spiritism by George Miller Beard

This article approaches spiritism from a scientific point of view including neurology and psychology. Beard's intention was to point out the failures of spiritualists and their lack of scientific understanding. He did this by criticizing how supporting evidence was gathered, mainly through testimony of human beings. However, Beard understood that the senses cannot always be trusted and that expert knowledge is crucial in deducing, explaining, and understanding the situation.

As the oracle gave place to the astrologer, the astrologer to the alchemist, the alchemist to the witch, the witch...

ESPlosion Telempathy by Ken Muller

Take your ESP card effects to a new dimension. This is a complete, multi-phase telempathy routine, that progresses from a simple match card effect to a magazine test, then a book test, then a more profound reveal of complex and detailed information - above and beyond expectations and traditional telepathy routines.

There is a bonus ESP card effect that will leave the audience speechless.

The 'explosion' is the belief in mind-to-mind communication.

This uses 'Once Removed' techniques and requires an ESP deck and book test familiarity.

Unknown Mentalist
Thot Card Xchange by Unknown Mentalist

The effect as seen by the audience: The performer displays a red-backed deck and a blue-backed deck. Two participants each choose a deck freely. Then both participants mentally think of a different playing card each. They need not announce which card they are thinking of. Surprisingly, when each participant deals down their respective deck, they find their thought of card missing from that deck. As a kicker twist, each participant's thought of card is found in the other participant's deck.

Physiology of Mind-Reading by George Miller Beard

The type of 'mind-reading' George Beard means here is what we today call muscle-reading, which is a term that Beard himself coined. Beard describes several experiments he conducted and describes very clearly the physiology of muscle-reading, and that it is an involuntary muscle contraction that has nothing to do with animal magnetism or thought transference.

Aspects of Mentalism by Peter Wilker

From the introduction:

It is undoubtedly true that published material on card tricks, be it books or articles, far exceeds all other magical publications taken together. What is the next most often treated special subject? Is it coins? Silks? Or is it mentalism? Although I cannot prove it, I think it is mentalism. So why another book on mental magic if there are already quite enough of them around and very good ones at that?

The answer is not easy to give. I have chosen aspects, or subjects, which are not easily found anywhere else, some of which are...

But in the end, no matter who made the decisions, or which decisions were made, only the center card is face up and it is the 4. Not only that, but no matter what decisions...
