Interacting with so many varying degrees of knowledge here has been a completely fascinating experience. Perspectives seem to be as varied as individuals. However there often surfaces several commonalities in theory and psychology, especially when these principles are contrasted between those who perform and promote magic as a career and the hobbyists or amateurs. One would be inclined to conclude that these differences are a matter of experience and education, learned vice learning. My question is this:

Do you remember any specific books, instructors, performances, or lessons where the message that you now espouse finally became clear to you?

Amongst the years of practice and performance, were they any moments you can recall that have truly defined you as a magician?
