From Wikipedia: Ultimately, Sleight of Mouth focuses on influence by challenging, and thus changing, beliefs. […] in Sleight of Mouth the concept of belief is built on a more specific set of definitions, as follows:

  • Complex Equivalence: X=Y, or X is equivalent to Y
  • Cause-Effect: X causes Y, X results in Y
