What you see is not necessarily what you get

It’s an illusion

It plays with your expectations

It’s Magic


A tank of water

A deck of cards

Steel rings

A large box and a saw

All tools of the trade


“Um, well, you see, there are…”

Blah blah blah

Eventually someone will figure it out.

Someone has the answer. 

Someone will explain why it’s a sham.


Is it mirrors?

Must be mirrors.

Is it smoke?

Must be smoke.

Is it magnets?

Must be magnets.


How about lasers?

Oh, I know, computers!

Whatever is happening I don’t understand.

But I do know what it's not.

It can’t be magic.
