Easy.

Live in a world where free will does not exist and all of your actions are controlled by a script writer.

This is a non-sequitor... just an observation about the dynamics among magicians at times.

Usually - when the play-bow of 'pick a card' bids for attention - it's a cue for some diverting amusement.
Among magicians online it feels like when a card is selected the performer is going to tell the volunteer "you picked the wrong card".

Okay back to "i've got a secret".

The real difficulty is coordinating the left and right hand finger movements to create the illusion of a tiny hot dog floating in the air between the tips. Once you get that down, the rest is a piece of cake.

OP: They are actors reciting memorized lines in a script. What do you mean, "How do I achieve this?"

Asking about the "imagine a shape" item? Probably find it in the same texts as the grey elephant from Denmark...
