Ne Plus Ultra
Read their minds and do impossible feats of Mentalism! Ne Plus Ultra will help you to create unexplainable miracles!
Harvey Berg’s unbelievable mental effect. A group of three classic novels is offered to the spectator who freely chooses any one. (No force!) Spectator merely thinks of a page number and turns to that page. No one else knows that number. The spectator is asked to read the top paragraph or lines from either right or left side of the page. And without further ado the mentalist proceeds to describe the scene or events written on the page. Not just one word, but a description of what the spectator is reading. The three books supplied may be examined. No extra guides, stooges, or keys. Requires 10 minutes to learn the secret.
In addition to performing it for lay persons (students and faculty of two colleges), it was also done for the New York City SAM, and officially launched at the mentalist convention in Las Vegas (MINDvention), where Harvry kept repeating it for small groups. It’s been a rousing success. It fried them all, not one single person figured out the method, and even though he took special steps at MINDvention to allow the books to be examined, the gaffing was not noticed a single time.
Ne Plus Ultra comes with three books familiar to all:
– Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen
– Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
– The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
Ne Plus Ultra works 100% of the time.
Ne Plus Ultra can be learned in 15 minutes.
Ne Plus Ultra is the result of five years of observation of spectators in Final Exam and five years of feedback from performers like you.
Ne Plus Ultra is the result of an “AHA” moment Harvey experienced when challenged to eliminate the one “weakness” in Final Exam mentioned above.
What if your volunteer just opened up to any page of a freely selected classic book well known to all and started reading? And then, with NO QUESTIONS, NO FALSE STARTS you started sensing and describing in detail the scene they are reading?
What if this required less than 15 minutes of “memory work”
