the Free Hypnosis Social Network
Hello there! How did you learn that Deren Brown was using "Sleight of Hand" versus "Sleight of Mouth"? I'd like to learn more about the mechanics of various mentalist tricks because I am fascinated with the way our mind works.
Also, have any of you read, Sleights of Mind: What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals About Our Everyday Deceptions by Stephen L. Macknik (Author), Susana Martinez-Conde (Author), Sandra Blakeslee? Or, how about The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us - by Christopher Chabris (Author), Daniel Simons?
Do you see the information in these types of explorations as valuable for developing new theories and tricks within the Stage and Street Hypnosis playground?
I am curious to read your thoughts ;-) (play on words intended)
