Virtual Event: Mind Game – Perception Deception
Saturday September 19 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Our brain decides how we perceive everything around us. It finds patterns and solves problems efficiently, except for when it lies to us.
In this engaging, virtual program William Pack explores the real science of how our brains trick us into seeing and believing things that don’t exist. You’ll experience how optical illusions work, why people fall for scams, and how our daily choices are influenced, including how we are wired to believe fake news. William will also give the attendees proven, scientific, actionable techniques to preserve brain health. At the end, you may be left wondering if your brain has a mind of its own.
Born and raised in Chicago, William Pack is a magician, storyteller, and author. At 11 years old, William got his first job in a magic shop. He performed close-up magic at the famous Schulien’s restaurant, caught cheats for a casino, and demonstrated magic for 13 years at Chicago’s Navy Pier. He is an internationally recognized magic historian and history with his performance. In 2001, he taught actor Will Smith sleight of hand for his portrayal of Muhammad Ali in the film, Ali. He can currently be seen regularly at the Chicago Magic Lounge.
