This is a truly amazing magic trick. Any light bulb, sealed in a clear bag, suddenly and inexplicably explodes! And you didn't even touch the bulb. Utterly baffling.
A professional piece of magic /mentalism to perform for a small group completely surrounded, on stage for a theatre audience or in front of a church for an adult congregation.
Place any ordinary light bulb in a clear bag - completely sealing it off. From this point on you never touch the bulb, and spectators can clearly see the bulb and straight through the bag. Concentrate all of your mental energy on the bulb - IT EXPLODES! This unexpected WHOOOMMMPP!! stops the hearts of even the most hardened spectators.
You now are free to hand out the bag of broken shards, or safely dispose of the dangerous fragments in a nearby bin.
You have complete control when you want to make the bulb explode. You could perform this as an experiment of the power of your mind over matter. Concentrate! As you stare at the bulb – it explodes! Use your own imagination as to the cause of how you make it explode. The power of the mind. Psychoknesis! A little known scientific principle?
The bulb allows you to refer to themes of light and darkness. The effect allows you to illustrate any message on the brokenness of life, sudden unexpected catastrophic events and our fragility. For example: 'In a moment your life can unexpectedly change. An accident, a death, a piece of bad news can leave your broken. Shattered. You're left picking up the pieces. But in those darkest times, when you think no light will shine, God is closest to us.'
Verses that can be used alongside this effect include:
‘Remember your Creator in the days of your youth...before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken.’ Eccl 12: 1, 6
‘While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly.’ 1 Thes 5:3
‘Do not fret over evildoers, and do not be envious of the wicked. For the evil man has no future; the lamp of the wicked will be extinguished.’ Proverbs 24:19-20
It's always a more engaging and powerful presentation when you use a volunteer. Imagine the look on a volunteer's face when they hold the end of the bulb and apparently break it with the power of their mind!
And don't why not include a light bulb joke! How many Germans does it take to screw in a light bulb? One. They're efficient and not very funny.
