The power of thought

Step 1: In front of you are two paper bags, a spoon and a fork.

Step 2: Take the spoon and one bag.

Step 3: Quickly drop the spoon into the bag.

Step 4: Close the bag.

Step 5: Take the fork and drip it likewise into the other bag.

Step 6: Hand both bags to the audience.

Step 7: “By the power of thought I will now make the spoon and fork disappear,” you announce.

Step 8: Take the bags back from the audience, who are convinced nothing happened because they can feel that there’s still something in the bag. Then, to everyone’s surprise, you pull out a bent spoon! Appearing somewhat confused, you say, “Maybe the paper bag is too thick, and the spoon bent when it tried to go through it.”

Step 9: Then you take out the fork – and the same thing has happened!

Step 10: “I guess I’ll have to do some more thought training!” you conclude.

Step 11: How did the spoon and fork really get bent? When you dropped them into the bag, you quickly bent them with your thumb. Yes, it’s really that simple!
