What does Ryan Schlutz say about 'False Anchor's...

"For years, I chased a concept that I did not understand. I wanted my magic to be completely hands off. I wanted to leave my audiences with the impression that I did not do anything, yet everything happened. It was my dream to place a deck of cards on the table and achieve miracles without lifting a finger.

When I first started to create magic effects, they all had a linear approach; that is to say my effects were directly connected to the methods. But over time, I pushed my methods to become more abstract until finally the method all but disappeared and only the effect remained. Discovering the balance between the two was where I first discovered the concept of False Anchors.

False Anchors create a memory, a feeling, a sense of comfort or spatial placement in the spectator’s mind. You are creating a moment they anchor to as important even though, in reality, it is fictitious. A False Anchor can allow you to erase part of a procedure in a trick as if it never happened. Some of the False Anchors I describe here are driven by method while others are solely motivated movements. A natural, motivated movement is as invisible as the best executed sleight. For example, you can simply look at the bottom card and it will go completely unnoticed if it happens at the right moment."

Throughout this book, we will discuss various effects that utilize False Anchors, as well as moves that help facilitate False Anchors."
