I‘ve enjoyed magic since I was a kid, and I actually regret watching some of those shows on FOX which revealed the tricks behind many popular illusions. I know there is no supernatural magic in the world — and with the splendid wonder of actual animals, plants, planets, and the universe, who needs it? — but the magic of illusion and slight of hand?
Not only is such magic tremendously entertaining — and Teller (of Penn & Teller, of course) nails quite the amazing illusion in the above video — but it’s also humbling, reminding us just how easily our eyes and our minds can be fooled (an important fact to keep in mind when religions claim “eye-witness testimony” to the deference of actual evidence).
Oh, and please do not use the comments here to reveal the tricks behind Teller’s illusion. Keep it magical; the fun is in not knowing!
