Tommy, what is the impossibility here? Where is the magic? It might qualify - can't tell.

Where is the boss you claim is always necessary?

I do not have a clue what you mean Ken. "Where is the boss"? Is that some sort of American lingo?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

It is not impossible or magic; it is sorcery, because I use a real witch doctors’ bone to make it spin one way or the other and if you give me any more lip I will point it at you and you will go dizzy.

"Giving you lip?" Hummm.

Oh well, it doesn't qualify then My sorceror friends think they are doing magic.

but thank for the seed of thought.

If one produced a caterpillar, or found a swashed/dead one and brought it to life - the wiggling being acquitment that it is alive,
and then closed hand and released a real butterfly - that would work - and doable!

It would be the production of both caterpillar and butterfly that is magic. The rest is theater.

Patter, bosh, is essentially nonsense and nonsense is often created with exaggeration. A chicken laying an egg, may not be magic but with a little exaggeration, a chicken laying an egg might become some nonsense about a goose laying a golden egg and out this nonsense, one might be able to create some magic effect.


With a little exaggeration, a horse can become a nightmare; a large black horse that snorts fire, with red eyes.


Exaggeration is the stuff that magic is nade on.

With a Braille Tarot Deck perhaps you blind wife could see the future. My wife loves that sort of magic.

Actually, she can do an incredible read with or without cards. Not magic, though, just enhanced empathic and listening skills.

I have book called Natural Magic, about Witcraft, nature, etcetera. They don’t call it magic because things in it are impossible but because they are occult, secret. Things can seem magical if you don’t know how they work. If they know how a trick works it is not magic is it?

What is human? Is it humane, philanthropic, kind, gentle, polite; learned, refined and civilized? Or is it just an earthling, earthly being, as opposed to the gods? Some magicians are dragons.

What makes you think magicians are human?
