They did not teach that in any of my math classes.

That is so amazing! I love cards. They are very mathematical. That is why I loved the book and the movie "21". Also, I used to be really good at counting cards and in a way, it is related to what he is doing.

It really is. I rewatched it and it does have something to do with the shuffle and the cut. It is mathematical, although I am not sure how he gets the cards to do what he wants them to do with the secondary influence of the other 3 people. 

I am impressed.

The deck is stacked.   The shuffle is brilliant because it does not change the stacked deck.   Basically about 10 cards are in an alternating sequence.  The balance are all black and then all red.

Ultimately the trick - the skill - is dealing from the top or bottom of the deck based upon the intended results.

Now, how he got all of the deck to be in order at the end is beyond me.    I wonder if Penn & Teller actually knew how he pulled all of this off because it was a multi-faceted trick and required a high level of mental and dexterity skill.

It is invisible . . . to most people!

(Only those of us with magickal powers are able to see it! :^)

FWIW-- that picture is from the Tarot. A standard Tarot deck is usually 78 cards. 21 or 22 (depending on the deck) are what are called "The Major Arcana"- supposedly strong, universal, "archetypes".  Different decks have slightly different portrayals-- this is from what is perhaps the most widely used Tarot deck-- The Rider deck.

The Major Arcana in most decks actually starts with number 0, and is called "The Fool". The Magician is number 1. Although he doesn't represent what we think of as a magician. Rather, he is an adept-- who brings thoughts into physical manifestation in the physical Universal. 

(P.S: I have been "reading" Tarot cards off and on for many years.... heh :-)

Good FYI Krish. I didn't know that.

Good FYI Krish. I didn't know that. 

Most people don't know (not that there's anything wrong with that). 

In fact not only don't they know about the actual deck, but the other stuff they know is wrong . . .  In the West the entire society is mainly "Left brain" the East its just the opposite.
