As a mentalist in London, I was hired by a law firm to lead a corporate evening. In this context, I proposed several experiences of transmissions of thoughts, telepathy and predictions.
Mentalist in London : Noughts and Crosses
As a Mentalist, i informed the audience that he is going to play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe with an audi-ence member. I invited one onto the stage, hands him a pen and pad of paper, and then plays a quick game with them on it.
The Mentalist smiles, and then says “Excellent. Now that I am familiar with your personal ten-dencies while you play the game, I am ready to play this again, but from across the room.” The Mentalist asks the spectator to go to one side of the room, and then proceeds to the other side of the room, where the Mentalist takes a seat in a chair with its back facing the audience and his Tic-Tac-Toe opponent.
The Mentalist then asks the spectator to draw another game board. This done, the Mentalist explains the new rules, saying “The audience may not be aware of this, but there are roughly 300,000 possible outcomes to this game. Because this time, I will be playing blind, I require total silence from the audience, as immense concentration is involved. I would also like to go first.
As we play, I will conjecture on possible moves aloud to myself. If I ask you a question, please feel free to either answer honestly or to attempt to deceive me. You may also opt not to answer at all. I may conjecture aloud as to the move I would like to make, but please do not mark any move on the paper until I announce that it is my final decision. If I end up taking a spot that has already been taken, whether by you or by myself, I have made an illegal move and will lose. Additionally, it is up to you whether I will be represented by Noughts or Crosses for the duration of the game. Let’s begin. I will take the bottom left space.”
The Mentalist then proceeds to play a game with the Spectator, occasionally hemming and haw-ing about a choice, but either winning or drawing at the end of the game. The Mentalist then finishes by correctly announcing which symbol the spectator choose to represent each party and the result of the game.
This routine allows the Mentalist to present a fantastic real time sort of remote viewing tech-nique, though in practice.
