As David Alexander points out on Volume one, Dead or Alive has

been one of my strongest pieces for nearly twenty years. It always induces

a deep emotional response from the participant. Wherein mentalists may

dislike most Living and Dead tests, the public, it seems, loves them. John

Edward, James Van Prague and Silvia Brown may (or may not) be douche

bags, but they certainly attract a high level of public attention.

There are lots of reasons for the popularity of this trick with real

people in actual circumstances, but only one of those reasons is that the

routine concerns a dead loved one. Iʼll address the more important factors in

a moment, but right now letʼs look at what makes L&D tests strong

entertainment.

First, the “test” aspect. Whether a book test, a billet test or a L&D test,

the word has accidentally been used as a substitute for “trick” or

“demonstration”. A real test must be just that; a experiment of investigation.

What test are you conducting? Whether a business card with a dead name

feels different than unaffected cards or does the participant react

differently? Is the cause psychic or psychological?
