Magic is known as the cups and balls, cards, coins, but how did you find magic altered from culture to culture and where did their roots come from? Every culture has their Dai Vernon equivalent.

Why the supernaturalist as a name?

As a senior member in the magic community what are your views on the state of the community at the moment?

What kind of reactions do you think will spur from your new series on Discovery Channel?

Have you performed an effect that caused someone to believe what you are doing is actual magic, and that you've involved yourself into some sorcery?

What's your prediction on whether 'real magic' exists or not? What do you expect to find?

-What is the most intriguing thing you have learned from this experience of a lifetime?

-Why? Why did you decide to actually turn this learning experience from a simple question and make it into a full out expedition onto a quest to find the answers you were looking for?

-Why are you doing this? Why is it an expedition for ALL types of magic instead of the history of "Card Magic" or the history of "Flourishing"? Why make such a broad spectrum of a question which is hard to understand and investigate in a whole?
