Mentalism is the practice of using the way people naturally act and manipulation.
Most magic requires manipulation. Usually this comes in using distraction tactics.
yes.. but as I will explain tomorrow.. this has nothing to do with magic.. but everything to do with manipulation.
I will add a little more information though.. In the real life situation I will refer to, it was not 99 out of 100 being eliminated (99%) but 1584 out of 1600 being eliminated (which is still 99%). This will make more sense tomorrow...
