When a magician starts talking about the power of positive thinking, then his audience will start to smile and receive the proposition with absolute incredulity – which is precisely what the magician wants, because then he can go on and prove the absolutely incredible true!
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Go for it tommy! I would love to see a video of you performing such a routine.

That's not what I want from my audience, but glad it works for you.

I will be especially interested to see how handle volunteer selection and care - the theme of this thread.

I think all the magic in all the world begins with an incredulous proposition. I have never heard of anybody doing credible magic.

If the audience finds the proposition credible then what would be the point of proving it is true? Mind you, if you did propose the credible and prove it, I suppose you could bill yourself as the most boring magician in the world. Ladies and Gentlemen, you may find this very easy to believe, but I am now going to pour myself a cup of tea before your very eyes, watch!

The may well be true, but has nothing to do with any "power of positive thinking" as a story line.

You seem to think it is a viable approach - so, I asked to see it done.

How much are you offering me to do what you are asking exactly?
