Using two classics of magic, Kyle Eschen explores the psychological techniques that underlie theatrical deception. As people wander the world, they use assumptions and heuristics to filter out everything that they deem unimportant - Kyle gives a conjuror’s perspective on the brain’s predictable blind spots.

Magician Kyle Eschen thinks deeply about psychology of deception. Through a decade of performing he has seen that people possess gaping blind spots, which he will highlight through magic routines with audacious methods.

"If i had real magic powers this is what I will do all day" lol - but he is not that far off
God created this huge universe, we get to live here for a few years and then based on getting his name right and joining the "right" religion we get to live in comfort for eternity. God, right now, is catering to the cozy
comforts of billions of lazy bums right now snoring away in Heaven!
Ah, the Grand Plan of God!
And billions think the above makes perfect sense - they actually killed and continue to kill and discriminate
against those who think otherwise
I like the unique showmanship. He puts the lemons in as he removes the red balls out. The 3rd lemon in pretty obvious. He puts his hand in the pocket which was not necessary. The other two times he pulls the lemons out when he puts his hand to keep the balls. But I made out only because I could watch the video again and again. Great show of magic nevertheless
re comments about the crowd being tough because they don't laugh. Even if your skills in a second language are good to communicate at even high conversational level, the hardest thing to do are cryptic crosswords followed by regular crossword puzzles and jokes. Jokes in particular often depend on the individual's understanding of social context as well as a huge vocabulary with all the nuances of sarcasm, facetiousness etc and the understanding of double meaning of words. This means that in order to understand jokes you not only have to be able to fully follow what the person is saying but have to be able to understand all the other things mentioned above as well. TBH, I was surprised that people laughed at all as his jokes were quite subtle.
actually, not trolling you but I will explain, The first trick, before he "put the ball in his right hand" he put it in his left, the next one he threw it up and caught it. I want to inform you, he had three balls the whole time. On the last one he used that advantage. one of the balls were on the ground after he did the disappear trick. He put the ball under the third cup (the one on the ground). I am not done watching and I am too lazy.
He's got the perfect balance of cynical humor with a touch of genuineness. So funny. I think a younger audience would have been laughing their asses off. Unfortunately, TED talks don't really attract audiences that are ready for cutting edge humor.
I know how the stick one is done. When he pulls the one from his pocket, before he lets it go (it actually retracts back into its self), he grabs the one in his hand and pulls while letting go of pocket one at same time. Thus looking like he is magic.
The limes go into the first cup at 11:39 from somewhere around his belt. The second lime goes in at 11:46 in the same manner and the last lime goes into the first cup again at 13:18.... You are welcome. 😂
The last sentences were really great. I kew the trick and could see through all his movements of the balls and where his hands were going but it's still a great trick in my opinion even while being so simple.
Ohh hack i got that *stick trick* see when he pulling the rope he tilt the stick upside because inside the stick there is weight attached with rope so when weight goes down the rope tide with weight will also goes down hence the rope goes inside the stick...
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
