The Big Coincidence
Dani DaOrtiz shares with you a coincidence so big that it’s an unbelievable miracle. Two packets contain matching mates despite the constant chaos of shuffling.Now set up in easy-to-follow chapters of The What, The How, and The Way, learning the magic of Dani DaOrtiz is even easier than ever before.
The magician shuffles the deck and then has a spectator grab a bunch of cards from anywhere in the deck, and they shuffle that packet underneath the table. Then the magician starts dealing cards on the table, and someone else says stop; they take a small packet of cards, shuffle them and then choose which cards from the packet to keep or discard. They do this through the entire deck and end up with a small heap of cards. The second spectator brings their packet back up above the table. Each spectator then counts the number of cards from their heap, and impossibly the number in each packet is identical. Then, in an even bigger coincidence, both packets contain each other’s mates in exact matching order.
The first thing that happens after you see this amazing effect is that Dani immediately teaches you this incredible trick. You will become privy to the Even Shuffle and the Cupid Stack. These two principles come together in a mind-melting effect that is shockingly easy to perform. There is only one daring moment, but Dani teaches you how to cover it like an absolute pro.
Here is where Dani breaks down the true secrets of Chaos. In this lesson, you will finally be let in on how your spectators perceive chaos. You will learn how to portray chaos with clarity so that the chaos is not in your show but a tool at your disposal in your audience’s mind. Dani will also share with you The Flashback Pillar. This is a clever way of re-writing the memory of your spectators to have them remember the timeline the way you want them to.
The Chaos Project is a year-long course in learning some of the devious methods and principles that make the magic of Dani DaOrtiz so deceptive. The fifth lesson is a masterclass in memory modification. Welcome back to the chaos with Dani Daortiz in Chapter 5 of The Chaos Project.
