TWINS is a book that includes 16 Different Methods for you to achieve the effect described below. It includes contributions from: Paolo Cavalli, Pablo Amira, Timon Krause.
This is an effect Nefesch has fooled, not only laymen, but also quite a few fellow performers! You can do this as a single performance or mix it up with any other routine in which you want to have a physical proof that you have your mind synchronized with someone’s else.
The performance goes like this… You explain to your spectator that you will attempt an experiment with him, in which your minds will be synchronized between each other and you will tell him that you will prove it.
You ask to your spectator to close his eyes while you are standing in front of him, you ask him to select mentally any of his two hands, this is done inside his mind, and he never tells or writes down his selection. Once your spectator has confirmed that he has selected one of his hands you instruct him that on the count of three he must raise up that hand and then he must open his eyes. When he opens his eyes he finds you in the same position that he is (lifting up one hand as a mirror reflection of your spectator). The audience confirms that YOU had raised your hand long before he did, as if you knew accurately what hand he was going to lift up (which is actually true!)
The same experiment is repeated a second time in the same way. Finally the experiment will be repeated a third time, but this time with a twist. You ask your spectator to close his eyes, to select one of his hands, once the spectator has confirmed that he has selected one of his own hands, you ask him to open his eyes, now he is standing in front of you with both his hands resting down, so you are, you now tell him that you will count to three and then both of you will raise one hand at the same time. When this is done, both of you are again standing with one hand lifted up-a perfect mirror position! Three times in a row!
