What is your own personal definition of magic?
Do you feel magic is something purely fictional, or something that can be learned to put on a show (magic tricks)? Or do you believe that magic is real, even if it is supernatural or part of the paranormal?
Magic is not supernatural or paranormal. It is merely a method used to distract a persons attention from what the performer is really doing. The magician gets people to focus their attention on something else while he manipulates an item or an object to make it appear as if it has moved to a new location or changed form, etc.. In short, it is a lie told to the audience by the "magician / performer", and it is so well told that people actually believe it is true. If you want to see a real life daily demonstration of this, just watch Obama every time he makes any move or opens his mouth.
very good answer, could of not said it better myself
I don't believe this person is asking about the stage magician. They are speaking of true magic. I might write a hub on it. But it is changes made by manipulating natural forces
The magic I believe in is the magic of the universe, the beautiful surroundings, the innocence in children and the magic they see around them. The unicorns they believe in (so do I) I believe they will heal in a better world.
They way they believe in Santa, the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, and why not, they are children, that makes peace in the world.
However the magic shows nope, its just purely entertainment. The hand is quicker than the eye. Go watch some on utube. A card dealer will never ever allow the audience to shuffle the cards.
Criss Angel, he is good at what he does and that's not a compliment as it means he is a good manipulator. How can anyone believe that he actually walks on water when they dont believe Jesus did it and was the only one.
People have to realize its purely entertainment, and there is no reality to it at all.
BTW, I love your user name
Then why did you agree with willrodgers? There is true magic. The Bible labels it as miracles, answer to prayer, but it is changes made by manipulating natural forces
Miracles are not magic.. Magic by it's very nature is Evil. Magic is an illusion. Miracles are Acts of God, they are not illusions. Satan, the great prevaricator, tries to counterfeit everything God does, in the hope of diminishing it. Moses faced
I regard "magic" as sleight of hand, as illusion, and there's certainly a practiced gift to that, but I ascribe nothing supernatural or paranormal to it. I think we've all seen some very impressive showmanship or a polished presentation and marveled at that, found it inexplicable and amazing, but there is a method and an explanation to all of it. I much prefer when a performer is accurately introduced as an "illusionist". I believe it's a skill that can be learned, often a rare talent of performance that can be polished, but I attribute nothing mystical or supernatural to it. At some level, I think we all enjoy wondering, "How in the world did s/he do that?"
