Here’s another set of genuine believers having their bubbles burst, at least temporarily. I say temporarily because they are likely to retreat to the social bubble in which their powers ‘work’ and find some way to rationalize their failure. That the people who smacked them down have demonic powers or aid is always a good one in these situations.
If you have not already seen this it is an exception to the rule that you can only demonstrate empty force on students. Derren Brown demonstrates empty force without all the steps I have described here – but he does quite a few of them. He also is very transparent in explaining that he does it through suggestion and that he has no special powers, just hypnotic, social and stage skills.
