Magic is a brain event. As we enter the moment of astonishment the spectators’ brain basically surrenders to not knowing. Not knowing can be a very pleasant place. In the art of magic it is a very pleasant place for 99 per cent of people. The tingling feeling of wonder and astonishment is a truly wonderful thing.
