The Ontology Project is an amazing new collection of routines and a revolutionary new approach to card magic. Consisting of five pieces of professional magic, the Ontology Project also includes utility tools capable of creating countless effects, limited only by your imagination. Whether you are a professional magician, performing mentalist or card enthusiast, the Ontology Project will provide you with mind-blowing magic, diabolical methods, and will inspire an entirely new way of thinking about card magic.

You will receive an elegant booklet and a collection of 54 Red backed Bicycle cards that allows you to perform the following effects:

DEEPEST SYMPATHY: Arguably the cleanest and most deceptive version of the Sympathetic Cards plot ever devised.

TRIUMPHANT: An unbelievable addition to Dai Vernon's timeless classic, Triumph.

FORCE OF NATURE: Based on Charles Reynolds' "Force of Thought" this is the perfect utility weapon magicians and mentalists alike. Included are two routines guaranteed to devastate: A spectator merely thinks of a card in the deck and the magician is able to instantly tell them what card they are thinking of and a perfect prediction.

CART BEFORE THE HORSE: A signed card to impossible location that brings a Bro. John miracle into the 21st century.

Very, Very Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2012
The Ontology Project (OP) was somewhat of a let down. I honestly did not expect a FISM Champion to take this particular approach to perform these classic routines. The routines are very good and very close to producing miracles but none of them ends clean. They are very risky if performed close up, it would take an unbelievable stretch from the magician in both imagination and audience management to get a clean ending performing any of these routines close up; well, unless the audience is exteremely shy and polite. But if performed on a stage or parlor setup, you, as the magician, will get away with it and that is probably the reason why the OP got such a rave reviews from brand name magicians because they all are stage or parlor performers. Given that maybe from time to time they would invite an occasional volunteer on stage to be the eye of the audience that is still relatively easy to get away in comparison to performing for a circle of friends at a party on the coffee table. Had the OP included a few suggestions on how one can end clean, I would probably take that into consideration and give it a better rating than 2 stars.

Incredible effects Report this review

While this is indeed a trick deck, I need to make mention that you have to have a regular deck to perform the effects. The beauty of this Ontology deck is that it is divided into four parts for the four tricks, so you could set up four different decks of cards and be ready to perform any or all of these during the course of an evening. They are independent of each other and to me that is a big plus.

No, you are not going to end clean in any of these, but that is just a matter of controlling your audience. You don't end clean with an Invisible Deck, yet that doesn't stop anyone from using it. During the "Deepest Sympathy" routine there is one part where you are so exposed you might feel nervous, but it's just a matter of crowd control. Keep your audience from going past 10 and 2 and you are fine. Angles are important for many effects so that's not a big deal.

"Triumphant" alone is worth buying this effect. Spend practice time with this, put in some work on a few cards, and you will leave them speechless.

All in all, sitting down for one evening you could learn all four effects and perform absolute miracles. No, you couldn't do all four of these in one sitting (unless you did four decks switches) but if you pick the right one as a closer for your act you will blow your audience away. Even magicians will look at this and wonder how you did it.

Great Report this review

I really like this product, it is put together well with clear instructions and the magic is very strong. I recently performed "Deepest Sympathy" in a parlor-style show and it was the most talked about trick of my set; I think this effect alone is worth the price of the package. There are several other nice effects which can be performed using the Ontology Project as well.
