He didn't say you CAN'T learn or master sleights later in life, he simply said you are UNLIKELY to master it at a later date. This is a statement concerned with probability, not actual physical inability. Many young magicians have the time and freedom to practice the knuckle-busters at an early age. Once you get married, begin working long hours, have a family to care for, perhaps aged parents or in-laws along with children, it becomes less likely that people will take what free time they have to master new sleights rather than maintain proficiency in what is already learned and actually works well. How often do we see people who have been "regular" magicians for most of their life change into sleight-of-hand artists later in life? Conversely, how many young sleight-masters opt for a different style of magic later in life? His thinking seems like it may be true, but without quantifiable data, it is just a theory. [/quote]
