Since you are saying that, I need to mention that Orion being a large project, it's only now that people are starting being 'ready' with the material. I just mean that they've just finished reading it... :-D (at least for the first ones to get it... Others still haven't, so we have time) . And already, there are some very interesting ideas posted in the dedicated group on Facebook. This morning, Eric Trumbauer posted a very interesting application of Restricted Imagery/Phasma applied to Lenormand oracle cards...

Before that, very interesting posts were made by Jerome Finley, Adrien Lochon, and a very nice effect (filmed) by Michael Clark, where he applies Phasma to a Rubik's cube routine....... Very nice.

That's the best compliment to me: seeing the material applied to fields I haven't explored. And God knows that despite the 600 pages, I've merely scratched the surface in Orion.

Be all well, and have a very nice weekend

It truly is a remarkable achievement that you have written these two substantial volumes on what one can argue is based mainly on essentially one main principle yet throughout both books, there's not a single page which felt like it was just repeating the same thing over and over. There's much to glean from each page so it's been quite a treat to work through.

Thank you very much kissdadoukie… Did you finish the whole thing, I mean: the two books?

And yes, Phasma is the main building block, but despite that nothing feels repetitive, and this is thanks to the multitude of tools added each time. I hope you will be using them in your existing material, or even better: take them in different directions.

Thank you again for your kind words. They mean a lot.

The main principle taught in these books is Phedonism. Once you have read both books and watched Sybil you will be a full blown Phedonologist 😀

Mark 😂😂😂!!

…and if on top of the above you have also read Proteus, then you’ve reached the point of no return…. Eventual symptoms such as burning your ESP cards and throwing away your peek wallets are normal.

I'm nearly through with the second volume. Smile It helps a lot to have had and been using Phasma for awhile now. I picked that up when you and Michael released your original lecture notes for it.

Note to Potential Buyers: Don't worry if you did not pick up the Phasma lecture notes. That content is basically in Orion for which Phedon also put more work into them since the original write ups in the lecture notes Smile

Format Question: Ebook Format

I was hoping to buy Orion, but I wanted to know what the file format was and whether I could read it on my Kindle.

Thanks.

Hello my friend,

Orion is available only in physical format, and it won’t be sold as an ebook.

Friendly,

Thanks for responding, Phedon.

I saw the limited edition and then saw it for $29.95 on a site that appears to be a pirate site.

Hell, if it's that price without being a pirate site, I am buying myself a dozen copies right now!

I can say that it was worth it for me to (eagerly) wait the two years until release,
and I don't think it will be another two years until the silver edition will be released for those which get interested now.

Of course not!!

Silver edition might even kick in right after Michael is done shipping the Gold set. If not, it will be close.

Two years? Hell no! 🥴

P.S: I’m glad to read that the long wait was worth it JesterAndrus

Less than 100 copies of the Gold Edition of Orion left.

Sign up at info@mindfx.co.uk

If you have any interest in getting the gold edition with slip case.

The silver edition will be coming out but it will cost more money and not be in a slip case.

Sign up before is gone.

Hi everyone,

Just so you know: only 50 copies remain in stock. Make sure you email Michael Murray at

info@mindfx.co.uk

to be placed on the list to make your purchase, if interested.

Due to the fact that Michael did a crazy job ensuring the book doesn’t fall into pirate hands, and due to the fact it was not sold in the usual fashion, but rather, only on invitation, plus, the size and weight of the set, plus, Brexit complications, with extra customs paperwork, all these contributed to restrict shipments to like 5 sets a day, making everyone believe the books were… out of stock!

So, that was just to answer many questions sent to me via PM here. There are still a few available.

Mitch love to all,

Phedon

I’m not sure I know Mitch but I appreciate the love and the update.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Have you read Orion? If you have, then know that Mitch is Eric’s brother. No less.
