When the Spectator Guesses a Method

In this situation, you have given the spectator no clue to the method from your performance of the trick; there has been no telegraphing, no sloppy technique—but he guesses at a method nonetheless. Something very important to remember in such circumstances is that, since you know you haven't exposed anything damaging, the spectator can't know if the method he has suggested is correct on not. Indeed, his solution could be utterly impossible. Regrettably, in most cases this isn't something a spectator will understand. To him, a hypothetical method for which no proof exists might seem entirely valid. Therefore, the matter of whether a guess at a method is correct or not isn't relevant.
