I wonder if Derren Brown is eagerly sitting at home in front of his computer screen, dizzy with excitement about the upcoming revelation of 'What is Theory 11'?

What is Theory 11? The marketing equivalent of the 3-card monte.

Absolutely! LOL.

No offense but you all want to know what Theory 11 is? A game and a message. If you take the magic subject out of Theory 11 what is left? Just a word and a number. Slim King really nailed it with his simple comment to wake you up. A successful and confident magician who is creative and developes original routines and/or molding an existing routine so it fits his/her personality don't need any Theory 11 or 12 or 13....

The confident performer who rolls up his sleeves and conceives an original routine makes him not just unique and successful but gives him enough confidence to chase such a Theory. I tell you right know that all guys involved in this huge 11 campaign are probably laughing their ... off reading all those speculations spanning over 113 posts.

Take a moment and ask yourself why do I actually follow this? Why am I so drawn into the Theory 11 game?...You want to know? Because you depend on and dream of the ultimate trick that will make you shine without much effort. You are longing to find the holy grail, the ultimate Illusion like Smeagol chasing after the Ring (Character of Lord of the Rings movie).

Every new hyped up trick becomes a quick fix and when you receive it in the mail, open the package, read the instructions and try it out the high diminishes and is suddenly gone. Now you need to buy the next and newest trick to overcome that down...

By no means I want to point fingers here or make you feel bad. I have been there and write this out of my own experiences.

Go to the beach or mountains, go fishing or chase butterflies...Make love in the cornfield and dream up ways to make your magic special and unique. That is the only theory you will ever need because your personal creation will be yours forever. You perform it, have success with it and one day maybe you want to sell it. Call it Theory 33 or whatever...Originality is actually the mainspring of any artform.

How many painters out there paint or dare to paint like Picasso or Van Gogh? Right. None. If you love magic and it is more important in your life then just performing for your friends and family.... then turn your computer off, walk to a mirror and find out who you really are, what you want to become and what you can do to achieve it.

The moment you decide to not rightaway click that 'BUY' button of the newest hyped up trick, you are on the right path. Instead sit down, listen to some music that inspires you and start creating. Don't say or think 'I can't do it' I tell you that you can but you have to take the first step.

There is no better reward and satisfaction then your own creation, your personal trick and routine. You can do it but only when you stop to chase a dragon like Theory 11.

Would the position of the boxes mean anything? Also you can see a coin or circular shaped object just in front of the middle box.
So this is magic!

All I can say is wow. That was some really good advice. However, you never know what is in store...

Looks to me as if some big parcels may be being delivered very soon.

Let me be the first to say to anyone who recieves anything of the sort, congratulations.

Hopefully Theory11 involves us all though.

Well . . .
I haven't learned a great deal more specifically about magic in the course of this Theory11 convoluted voyage of discovery but I'd like to thank Mr. Chris Kenner and the rest of the team at T11 for expanding my previously limited knowledge of Italian High Renaissance sculpture and painting.
Those Old Masters sure knew a trick or two when it came to creativity, rivals though they may have been.
That chappie Vasari was extremely fortunate to have been in their time and move among them.

;)

The time is drawing nigh. What the hecko gecko are we all gonna do when it's all over?

I am not so with you Silvio although I must admit that some things you said is true and I agree with you on some points. I've been a member with magiccafe for over 2years, and I don't post much as you can see. I am too busy travelling around the world and performing magic on a professional basis, meeting people and learning cultures etc. to post much.

However, when BIG names in Magic PROMISE something that will revolutionise magic by announcing it the way they are doind, then I take heed!! After all these are the people that make people famous with 'their' creativity! Let's just hope that they live up to their promise...otherwise a lot of people are going to be dissapointed in them. So I am using my time to discover something I am not familiar wih yet (or maybe I am familiar with it already).

So Silvio, if you'd like to go around chasing butterflies , go ahead, no one's stopping you. Maybe this is NOT for you! But so far it appeals to many persons and there is no harm in discussing and sharing information to try to solve a puzzle. After all it's a mind game and we're playing it!

BTW I'm by the pool relaxing with my laptop and wifi so I'm not wasting my time Smile
So this is magic!

here is what I have so far (i'm just listing all the numbers I have)

80 / 280 - The roads in the Light video

an excellent post, and yes I know what your point is.. we all know thoery11 is a game.. a message and advertising.. A successful and confident magician who is creative and develops original routines or molds an existing routine so it fits their personality is yes what everyone wants and should be, part of that process is exercising your brain a bit. I love cryptology, puzzles, secrets and anything that will stimulate my brain, so from my standpoint, thoery11 is an interesting exercise. In that it takes some thinking and logic, and seeing things outside the box. but it's nothing more than a game..

your comment about depending on and dreaming of the ultimate trick that will make you shine without much effort. sorry.. yes some people feel like that... personally I already have enough in the library of books.. the tarbels, sphinx's, jinx's, mahatma's the books by goldstein, hugard, koran, berglas, andruzzi and others. I'm not looking for something that's going to make me shine with zero effort.. it doesn't exist.. but what does is a way I can occupy some time and exercise my brain, its like someone doing a crossword.. whats the point in that?? they find it interesting, fun and challenging.

Luke Jermay makes a great point in his article and not caring about the new hype, the latest black deck of cards, or the newest hyped up effect, he talks about looking at the old, re-inventing and using what you know, to perform a miracle. re-inventing, enhancing and creating, takes effort, and intelligence. If you sit and hit BUY and someone serves you up what you need, then you never will get to the point of being able to create. I have quite a few note books here full of thoughts and ideas on effects, twists, and thinking, and from that a few effects have been born, that I created, some new, some similar but different to existing ideas. Some of those after years of tweaking are now being looked at to be marketed through a dealer who likes them, but the one thing that was required was thinking and EFFORT.

the 'game' is teaching that it takes EFFORT and thinking to get anywhere... regardless of the endgame... if its a shop.. fine.. if its an effort.. fine.. I don't actually care... the 'thing' isn't important to me... I don't think in any post have I said that... to me.. the important thing was the puzzle.. and solving it..

you also have to think about the target demographic for the campaign.. if you're the only person in the room not nodding to the advert.. then the advert isn't for you.. Like companies like ellusionist, who's target audience is mainly the younger 'excitable' magician keen to consume and soak up the hype, Kenners campaign is also more than likely pointed at a demographic,

everyone has the right to be excited about whatever they want, and everyone has the right to pursue what they wish, in whatever way they feel. on the 31st for me.. the logic puzzle is over.. I've given my brain some exercise and I'll be happy... Many will be happy because they will probably have new stuff to look at.. Kenner will be happy as he's succeeded in creating a talking point, and you'll be happy that you don't have to read about it any more..

some will be happy that they have discovered that they can think about something, and discover a solution.. that is whats important in magic... solving the problem.. as if we don't think and solve.. there will be nothing new..

that's just my own personal opinion... and I respect you own views as well, as I hope you respect mine..

If you look at the source it says that you need adobe flash player... does that mean that the picture is a flash which means is it possible to click on a certain place on the picture and something will happen?

I think ellusionist did something like that with their most recent contest, but I'm pretty sure that message popped up in previous pictures as well...

So D......r becomes unlocked overnight. No username or password required. I will assume all other pages will be open in the same manner in the near future or at 11:00pm Friday. I don't think following any clues will do any good at this point. I will plop myself down in front of my computer tomorrow night but I don't see any point continuing with this cat and mouse game.
