Magic is all about directing attention. If I didn't want you to look at my right hand then I don't look at it.
I like pushing the envelope. I like pushing myself and the audience, whether it's a TV show or live. I like to throw people over the edge of the cliff and scare the wits out of them, but then pull them back and make them safe.
Some brains are easy to hack into, and other brains are nearly impossible to hack into because they are so complex.
I don't pretend that I can read minds. I don't believe anybody can read minds. In other words, I don't believe in psychics.
If someone is lying to you, they'll generally look up to the top right. That means that they're trying to construct an image that doesn't exist.
By combining elements such as hypnosis, magic, neurolinguistic programming and psychology, I can make it appear that I can hack into people's brains.
Studying neuro-linguistic programming is what teaches you how to implant and extract thoughts. Mixing psychology, hypnotism and magic somewhat goes into this area called mentalism, which is what I mostly do. It's magic of the mind.
