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...

Unknown Mentalist

Thot Card Xchange by Unknown Mentalist

This is an intro price and will go up to $9 from April 26, 2021.

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.

Another effect as seen by the audience:...

Furst Time by Ken Muller

Glimpses into the mind of one of mentalism's pioneers.

BaseMental by Ken Muller

A collection of nine mental type effects and methods learned fifty years ago from people - not books. No confederates or gimmicks are used in any of these mental demonstrations. Simple - Profound - Effective. I have never seen these in print in any form. All were learned from older mentors during my teen years and never forgotten.

THREE for ALL: Three spectators freely select cards from a borrowed deck and place them in their pockets. You reveal all three by the "Whisper of a Lady."

ENVELOPED: Several spectators seal written items in envelopes. A second spectator holds these against his...

Barcoding by Zanetti

A nice little impromptu piece of mind reading you can do when the opportunity arises. Divine the thoughts of your participants without anything written down. The only thing that is required is a shelf of DVDs / Blu Rays / PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Switch games, books, CDs, or a mixture of them all and you are ready to go.

Effect

The participant picks up any DVD / Blu Ray / PlayStation Game / XBox Game or Switch Game from a shelf. For this example, they select a DVD. Because this might not have been a free choice and the participant could have somehow been manipulated to select that DVD,...

Aspects of Mentalism by Peter Wilker

Mentalism without playing cards.

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...

Entropy Dropping by Jan Bardi

Explorations of a 100% hands-off "volunteer as psychic" plot and method.

"I find 'Entropy Dropping' an amazing piece of work. Jan creates a world of new possibilities and I doubt anyone else could have tackled the topic as thoroughly. Every nuance is addressed.

GPS by Unknown Mentalist

GPS stands for Geopsychic Past-Life-Positioning System.

Using nothing more than a single double blank business card and a piece of paper, you can accurately divine the place of birth of a participant either in a past life or a future life, as per her choice.

The only inputs you will be taking from your participant are her place of birth in this life and details of her birthmarks if any. The result will not only be stunning for the participant but also will be verifiable for her.

Most of the effect is self-working and very easy to perform. But the presentation is key and all the necessary...

Lifecraft is a quick, solid feel good routine. The main routine is pure mind reading and there is an optional second phase too. This effect can be done face to face or in a virtual show. It can even be performed over a voice phone call.

No sleights, no stooges and no pre-show work. Nothing to reset as there is no set up at all. You are always ready to perform. Practically self working. Everything can be freely handled...

Echo Force by Unknown Mentalist

The Echo Force is a beautiful force but way under utilized. It is powerful, effective and highly deceptive. And it can be applied in a multitude of ways. In book tests, predictions, divinations, drawing duplications and even in propless effects. The only limit is your imagination.

This force is completely self-working and you can focus totally on your presentation. There are no sleights needed, no preshow, no stooges or instant stooges. No equivoque, no dual reality, no memorization. And this works in any language.

The following 7 routines are explained based on the Echo Force.

Throughout the book, you'll learn not only techniques and subtlety to obtain the very innermost thoughts of the spectator, but also humorous stories and hard-earned lessons from Dr. "Q", revealed...
