    I am starting this dialogue in an "if" sense to not "seem" to elitist :eek:...lol

    I am strong on the force side of things and not so on the current, atheist, comtemporary, scientific notions of things

    But here is a you tube link to some really cool magic "tricks" by David Blaine

    What is he doing?

    Is he a Wizard?

    Is he a God?

    Is he future us?

    I also like the videos where guys use telekinisis to move stuff without touching it (Please post some)

    This leaves us also to people we can sit in front of and they tell us with their eye's closed what is going on with us with perfect precision without asking

    Good luck and happy Magic discussing ;)

    Some time our brain is domineering when it comes to coping with reality. We sometimes see things, that are not as they really are, sometimes invent categories that do not exist and sometimes fail to see things that are really there.E.g - there are people who have never seen or heard of an aircraft or some other objects and will not be able to imagine it and a real airplane overhead will be distorted in their minds, creating alternative realities.:confused:

    For David Blaine magic I would say the term hallucination for such irrealities in order to avoid confusion. The acts of misleading are called delusions, and illusion is an impression, though false, is provisionally entertained by the senses, but awaits full acceptance. I think in his case above we have acts of misleading! :biggrin5:

    Isn't that subjective though :eek:


    Misleading from what? Your perceptions of how reality works? This is course is rooted in a non-existent Unified field theory hence incomplete obeservations, theories and ultimate answers or the lack thereof of our cosmos!

    To me limitless exists side by side with the subjective observer being one with the object observed

    I don't believe in magic, but I believe in good planned tricks :)
    magic from my practice: In the evening you turned off your PC, in the morning magically it won't turn on.
    two possibilities:
    1. It's magic, bad spirits broke it.
    2. It's computer physical error caused by power line failure or physical computer component damage due to usage or overheat or other rational thing and NOT by the bad spirits.

    Magicians and other people that are doing "impossible" things - good prepared people who had a lot of practice before show that they won't fail :) and all their tricks can be easily explained by science if all details are known, but as all of us know, no one can enter stage and to look closely what are they doing. :biggrin5:

    Oh, beer trick, it's when you look at glass of beer in the bar, then you turn for a moment, and when you look back it's empty? lol

    Magic or reality?
    It's neither magic nor reality.

    It's a manipulated way to preceive the illusionary world. The guy (magician) uses sophisticated tricks and special items to delude ones sensation.
    The same happens if you confuse a rope with a snake in dim light. Goal is always to trick the sensation.

    My uncle was a magician, too. A real magician never talks about how it works. My uncle showed me a few tricks and how they work. Believe me most are quite simple and all the magic is gone if one got how it works.
