Revealing a chosen card, or making some sponge balls appear, that's one thing. But when you get in someone's head and read their thoughts, that REALLY freaks people out. Welcome to mentalism -- the world of the impossible.
These are the freaky magic tricks seen normally in scary movies. Words appearing on your skin, or someone else's; chosen cards showing up as ashes, blisters or who knows where; secret thoughts written on paper; pens and rings moving weightlessly; thought-of songs suddenly becoming ring tones on cell phones; even people getting mild electric shocks -- it's all here.
This field of magic is not for everyone. It's reserved for only those willing to put in the practice to get insane, crazy reactions, and to seal their reputations as shamans walking the earth. Without the hallucinogenic herbs.
