I just had to share this amazing Mind Reading Magic trick that my friend is offering to show you.
is it that attracts people to magic shows? Indeed magic is probably the only
form of entertainment that transcends all age, gender, racial, ethnic and
miscellaneous boundaries to wow its audience.
For a good magician, no
compliment could be greater than hearing his spectators gasp and from the viewer’s
perspective, it is the art of performing new, innovative and different tricks
that renders the effort worthwhile.
time people go to a magic show, they look forward to watching the
impossible happen. But is it truly impossible?
As a warm-hearted and friendly
magician would tell you, no, it is definitely not impossible although mastering
the act might take time.
But the first step entails gaining
cognizance of the various tricks and to facilitate better understanding these
are categorized under nine broad sub-headings which are discussed here on free magic tricks and illusions as follows –
Production - Producing something appears to be second nature to all magicians – after all while watching a magic show it is
inevitable that a rabbit will be revealed from within
the hat or a bird will fly out from a handkerchief. The act of producing
something from scratch is referred to as production. Magicians often
employ this technique as one of the first tricks to capture the attention of
their audience and spark their interest.
Vanish - An antidote to production is the
vanishing act wherein an object in plain view suddenly disappears into thin air
much to the astonishment of the audience. It is a magic trick that never fails
to draw squeals of surprise in the case of small objects like coins or an umbrella
to gasps of horror in the case of something prominent.
two tricks namely production and vanishing are two sides of the same coin
wherein the magician needs to make something disappear in order to produce it
and vice versa.
attribute that distinguishes magicians from commoners is their ability to achieve
that which others cannot even imagine, for example –
Transformation - To transform an object from its present
appearance into something totally different. In a way it is a
combination of disappearance and production wherein an object, say a hat, is
first made to disappear and then reappear as an owl.
Restoration - Restore an object as impeccably as
possible like a shattered glass subsequent to having
destroyed it so that it appeared to be undamaged.
often rely on seemingly supernatural techniques of movement as a way of
manifesting their powers and do so in the following ways –
Teleportation - Teleporting objects and living things
from one spot to another without any mobility being apparent, meaning things
just seem to fly from one spot to another often drawing a reaction of ‘how did that happen?’. To make things more interesting, the magician at times exchanges
objects too. Referred to as transposition, meaning double transportation so that the canary is found sitting on a sofa and the lady
enclosed within a cage.
Escape - How did he manage to survive? This is
another question that is frequently heard in magic shows and marks a reaction
to an accomplishment of escaping from a seemingly impossible situation like being trapped and headed for
a churning blade, being walked over by an elephant and so on. Many magicians
involve an assistant too while performing this act which is known in the
magician’s jargon as escape.
a magician it is extremely important to keep the audience mesmerized and to
attain this objective, the following tricks can be performed –
Levitation - To levitate meaning defiance of gravity,
wherein the object or the human being gives the impression of floating in the
air – something that only birds are naturally equipped to do. Although nothing
more than optical illusion, levitation in any form and of any object whether it
is inanimate or living and breathing never ceases to draw looks and expressions
of disbelief. Contemporary magicians like David Copperfield and Peter Marvey
depend on this trick to win over their audience with each having developed his
Penetration - Have you ever wondered how performers in
magic shows manage to pass through the wall, mirror or any other opaque
surface? Known as penetration or ‘solid-through-solid’ it is a trick whereby the magician or his subject seemingly passes one solid object through another.
The most common sequence in this context is that of a sword being driven
through a girl’s torso with no apparent harm caused to them.
Prediction - Mind games and tricks are important
weapons in a magician’s arsenal and a good magician uses them effectively to
predict outcomes in a hitherto unknown situation. Guessing the amount of change
in the pocket of a spectator, the card that he might have picked from the pack
of cards or breaking news pertaining to some recent social cause are tricks
that come under this category.
that you have learned the types of magic tricks and what they entail, do you not think you are in a better position to start practicing after having adjudged
which trick to break the ice with?
