...and while I have every respect for magicians like Criss Angel, their brand of magic is completely different. DB`s speciality is mesmerism, while CA`s is illusion. Both have the same foundations in magic, but the presentation is different. - Besides, DB does not claim to be a psychic (such as Uri Geller). He does have a good way of presenting his tricks...
...and given the chance, I`d give him one! *fap*
Who knows whether these people are in on it or not, Stranger things have happened.
Milton Erickson, Bandler, and Grinder were absolutely amazing linguists. unbelievable.
if you want to learn more, I suggest you buy a book by bandler and grinder, the structure of magic.
there are a few other nlp books.
I also noticed he made them look away by pointing like asking which way is north and where the drug store is.
i mean.. like you would feel if it were paper.
the instant it hits your hand
It`s not distraction from looking at the money, it`s distraction from thinking about it too critically.
i reckon, like most of derren browns stuff, that we dont see what take place before the trick
I strongly doubt they`re not seeing blank paper when they accept his "money". Note the line of conversation in all instances, it`s either the subway or pills, which are both things one takes. Note when he hands the money, aside from just talking about his anecdote, he`s also reassuring the clerks to take the money, it`s okay, take it. Certainly part of the trick, I think, is that people don`t really expect other people to come around and screw with them like that. I mean, who`s stupid enough to try and pay with blank paper?
From what I have seen I don`t recall him ever saying he is going to read a persons energy to find which hand the coin is in.
You say he uses the `energy` excuse to he can get close enough to make use of the rings you say he has. However I think he might use the moment of touching hands so he can use his muscle reading technique.
Also from what I have seen, he uses props that his target is carrying on them, as oppose to his own `modified` ones.
The trick in the jewellery store probably worked because that`s how criminals steal from them. They write what they want on pieces of paper and hand the paper to the cashier. The guy was looking at the paper and started acting suspiciously nervous after he saw the piece of paper instead of money. They dont really care if you steal their goods, they got insurances for this kind of stuff.
that was sooo awesome though
I find that hard to believe. He doesn`t `read energies`, he reads body language.
He might touch the hands to he can muscle read, and detect tiny resistances to movement in a certain hand.
I`m a fan of his and seen this before, but still find it great.
...dont think he meant it in a nice way mate...
