He's most certainly not worried about that. I would suppose, however, that he has a clear inner dialogue about which mental ability he's demonstrating for entertainment purposes.

This was a performance for the ages. It was profound. It put thngs in perspective.

Those who are nitpicking trivialities (such as which abilities were being demonstrated) are, in their own way, helping to make Marc's point. These are the silly little things that concern us until life comes along, kicks us in the stomach, and shows us what really matters. Pay close attention to what Marc said:

"Now, if I told you that I knew this exact outcome yesterday, a week ago, or a month ago, you'd say, 'Well, that would have to be magic.' Some people would. But it's not real magic. It's interesting. Intriguing. Maybe clever. Some might even say 'amazing.' But it's not real magic. See, for me, 'real magic' changed two years ago. This, to me, is real magic..."

Or rather having a conversation about a specific point... nitpicking trivialities?

Yes. Nitpicking trivialities.

There are more important things in life than magic tricks.

That was kind of the point.

We're in a forum dedicated to the "general discussion of mentalism." Discouraging that discussion to teach life lessons instead doesn't seem to be in the spirit of where this conversation is taking place.

This isn't a general discussion though. Its a discussion about a very specific and unique act perfect for BGT. I don't think it discourages anyone to talk about any aspect of Mentalism as all areas have been covered. I think it makes us look deeper at why this worked for BGT. Everybody's post in this thread is valid. People can take what they want and leave what they don't from any one of them.
