A great technique to know a spectator’s randomly selected word!
A spectator is asked to come up with a random word on the spot. No preshow, nothing is written down. And yet that word can either be revealed instantly or even predicted in advance.
Through a game of word association, several members of the audience constitute a chain of thought. Without asking any questions whatsoever, you are free to reveal each and every word thought of by the participants. Alternately, the final word can also be predicted.
Upon learning that you are a “mind reader,” somebody challenges you by saying: “Alright, then! What am I thinking about right now?” With Leviathan, you are immediately able to demonstrate feats of both telepathy and precognition in an impromptu situation. In other words, not only can you accurately read minds, you can also predict the outcome of a random thought process.
My version of the A.A.A. Book Test: A spectator selects a book from their own library, opens to a page and focuses on a word. Then, that person is asked to make up a completely different word in their mind through a random thought process. You are able to reveal both words. Yet, once again, the last selection can even be predicted.
More than a collection of effects, Leviathan is a propless system that enables you to lead your spectators down a specific train of thought. In a nutshell, your volunteers embark upon a process of word association that occurs purely in their mind. This appears completely fair and arbitrary, yet you remain in complete control throughout. As a result, you are always free to use this principle as a way to either gain information or force a particular outcome that you have already predicted.
Equally, you also have the ability to improvise with the system as much as you want. Although I have provided you with several ideas for routines, you can always incorporate Leviathan into the effects you already have in your own repertoire, such as book tests, name or star sign revelations. Therefore, it is a very versatile and easy-to-learn principle that you can use from professional performance settings to completely impromptu situations.
Please bear in mind that this manuscript essentially caters to experienced mentalists who already have several ways of obtaining a secret piece of information in the first place.
