Mundus Vult Decipi--The Mind Invites Deception

This is the home of Verstand The Illusionist.

Mundus Vult Decipi, the mind invites deception. This simple statement is the power behind magic and illusion. No matter how intelligent you are, how old you are, or where you come from, there is no greater pleasure than being totally and completly decieved.

Magic is a simple and effective way to truly obliterate one's conception of what is possible.

Mentalism is my specialty, the power of the mind is an amazing concept. The very idea of being able to move things, read minds, and conjure seemingly non-existant objects, all with the power we all have, is truly great.


Imagine you are walking along, and someone comes up to you. He asks you if you want to see some magic.

He pulls out a deck of cards, and tells you to take a card. You do, and memorize it. You place it back, and he shuffles the deck. He hands the deck back to you, and turns around for you to shuffle it.

When he turns back, he tells you to put your hand on his arm and focus on your card. When he tells you to release, your card is engraved on his arm. Then his reaches into his back pocket, and removes your card from his wallet. The same card that you had the entire time. He then rips the card up, and places the pieces into your hand.

When you open your hand, the card is intact.

This is the power of a great  illusionist. This is the power of Verstand.
