These are divination routines based on a couple of very novel and unique forces. The best part of these interesting forces is that the routine can be repeated with a different outcome each time. Both the forces explained in this manuscript are combined with a cool 'observational peek' to deliver a killer impact. And yet, the routines are self working, totally hands off and very easy to perform. All the work is done for you and you can simply print and perform as soon as you read and understand the routines.
There are no sleights, no stooges, no preshow. Also there is no math, no reset and no refills. The forces are very clever and you are sure to find many other uses for the methods and techniques explained here. Once you read the manuscript, you will understand and appreciate the importance of Psycherotika. There is nothing 'erotic' in a literal sense about the contents of this ebook. But you will surely enjoy what you will read here.
"He has done it again, the Unknown Mentalist produces a steady stream of fantastic miracles. I think he is a team of people, one person cannot do all this quality. Buy Psycherotika, if you don't love it, I will pay you for your purchase. I have no business interest in this product, just an amazed and vocal fan." - Marc Salem

This is another very unusual approach to a word test that I like very well. The UNKNOWN MENTALIST has done it again. I think I'm going to use this effect followed by the word list in WORLDS WITHIN WORDS ....OR THE GROW DEVILS PRINCIPLE. Either way I won't go wrong. This will pack a nice one two punch to the spectators and can be used close up or on stage. I recommend this highly! UNKNOWN MENTALIST, I'm glad to have you as a friend!

For me, the basic principle here is really novel and amazing. With a little thought, it can be applied to various other presentations.
As usual, UM has come up with some very clever n solid routines applying this principle and all the variations play really well. Since learning this, I could actually perform this over a dozen times and each time my audiences were pleasantly amazed.
For the given routines, all the necessary 'work' is provided readily - just learn and perform. I am actually planning to apply this principle to a travel theme - instead of jumping from word to word, the spec will 'travel' from city to city and I then know which city he ended up on. The scope for this principle is truly vast.

Not practical...Feels set up...Looks like a trick...Not an easy sell...Not an easy follow for spectators. Too many moving parts. This one is a pass. All his other stuff rocks. This is a misfire...

Here's the lowdown on this interesting creation by The Unknown Mentalist. I'm not an expert by any means when it comes to mentalism creations, though I'm not unfamiliar with it either. I'm 54 and been involved in magic my whole life, and have thousands of performances under my belt. Historically, I've never seen this structure before. It's very clever, and to most laypeople will be shocking or at least in-explainable. There may be an exception or 2 due to the structured procedure the spectator has to go through. The routine the Unknown Mentalist created for Psycherotika is well thought out however, and creates a nice and convincing excuse for it being done this way. It's presented as a certain aspect of mind-reading, an exercise-of-sorts. I made a set and tested it twice with my usual guinea pig immediate family members and got the desired reactions. 1 family member fell for it, hook, line, and sinker. Magician's brains will churn with delight, trying to figure it out. All in all, it's a very clever trick.
Effect: A card is handed to the spectator. A decent number of words are written on it. He/she looks them over and chooses one. Now another card is handed to them. On both sides are many individual words. The spectator looks over both sides over and decides on a word that starts with the same letter as his / her secret word (from the 1st card). Now, he / she travels through the words by, noting the last letter in their current word and selecting another word that starts with that letter. They do this as many times as the birth month (numerically). They finally concentrate on that final word and the mentalist reveals not only it, but the word they began on as well!
After reading that, you may be going "Ah,,,,,,,hmmmm, interesting.", but don't bother figuring it out. You won't, and for the reasonable price, don't bother trying.
