“That’s a nice trick, but it’s not real magic.”
Whenever I get this comment, I agree. And it makes me wonder, then, what real magic looks like, and what this person is expecting.
I suppose it’s the unexplained phenomena in our lives… but is it “real” simply because it lacks an explanation? If that’s the case, then my tricks are real magic.
Whether magic is real or not depends on the participant. When the universe manipulates itself it’s very much like when I manipulate a deck of cards in order to deceive someone.
Everything depends on deception.
