Mentalism, magic or mind reading will be disrupted by technology in the future.
Will they lose their significance?
I would not do that.
Magic has a good way of changing.
Magicians have always been able to incorporate new technology into magic.
There is a packet card trick called “The Web” by Jim Paces.
Magicians have seen an opportunity with this and can now create the same first illusion with a version of this that uses iPhones.
Mentalism and mind reading can be considered the same.
Peter Poppoff used ear technology to create the illusion in the 70s.
The majority of illusions and mentalist tricks are old fashioned.
The best books are over 50 years old.
The methods have been tried and tested.
The presentations of these illusions will evolve to eliminate technology from the illusion with the advancement of technology.
A good example of this is when a mentalist tells onlookers to check his ears for earpieces during a blindfold routine.
When he is using something simpler to create the illusion, people stop thinking he is using technology.
The method won’t change, but by adding this little bit into the trick it makes it seem more difficult.
A mentalist tries to read your mind with mental tricks.
They will ask you to think of a number and write it down, and the really good ones may use others to help them read your mind.
They have written down the number the person is guessing.
There is no such thing as a real magician.
Alan can make it look like he is reading minds with some old school conjuring methods and a bit of word play.
Mentalism is an idea that stays in your head and can be a dream.
When you learn Mentalism, it’s the same.
It’s not possible to read 10 people’s minds at once.
