Divine Time by Jason Palter
Divine Time is a reputation maker. Your audience will be stunned when you divine the time on a freely chosen watch from your personal collection! No pre-show, no fishing, no prompting…no way!
You relate to the audience your fascination with time, and display part of your collection of digital watches in a large, clear plastic bag. You further share your thoughts on the widespread belief that energy and rhythms flow through the universe, and that while time is relative, it too is just a series of vibrations. To that end, you briefly enlighten the audience to the inner workings of a quartz watch, and state that the quartz crystals vibrations could theoretically be transmitted through an individual. Only very perceptive people can feel these subtle pulses, you explain, and you wish to try an experiment with this premise tonight! After inviting a spectator up on stage, they confirm that the watches in your collection all show random times. Without looking, they freely choose a watch, and hide it behind their back. The spectator, the audience, and you have no clue as to which watch was picked. Then by using the vibrations that the quartz crystal emits, and by utilizing a knock-out and somewhat eerie routine, you are able to divine the time on the watch! The spectator leaves the stage completely baffled, and the audience has been totally mystified with a new-age and innovative presentation!
Some key points to remember:
- No pre-show work, no fishing, no prompting.
- You choose the time that will be revealed. Resets in about 5 minutes, and is repeatable with any different time using our “Time Control” method.
- The spectator, the audience, and you never see the watch until the spectator reveals it at the end of the routine.
- The spectator can examine and even keep the watch at the end of the routine.
- There’s nothing to find!
