As Part of Stirling Science Festival
This interactive show examines superstition and ‘luck’ in more detail. There is also a powerful demonstration of mind reading to encourage a more sceptical and critical outlook on things – we encourage the audience to work out how it is done. Overall I hopefully persuade people to look at things a little more critically – the bump in the night is probably the heating pipes rather than a ghost! The idea is drawn from a book by Richard Wiseman called ‘The Luck Factor’ where he examined many people, some who thought they were lucky and some who thought they led unlucky lives, and came up with 4 principles of luck.
