The Ten Theories of Magic

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by hector_cervantes, Dec 11, 2008.

  1. I have heard of the ten theories of magic but I don't know them does someone have information on them? would really love to know
     
  2. Wow I learned something today
     
  3. 10 theories in magic:
    1. Production
    2. Vanish
    3. Transposition
    4. Transformation
    5. Multiplication
    6. Penetration
    7. Restoration
    8. Suspension
    9. Levitation
    10. Mentalism
     
  4. There are actually 18 in my opinion. Before several different types of magic have been grouped under one category. (Mentalism for instance.) I have though about this long and hard, and trying to mix things up is rather silly. I could group Vanish and Transpo under Production by saying that "I produced nothing where the ball was, and produced ball over there where there was nothing.". Also, they are not theory's at all so I don't know why people call them that. Anyhow, that's the name they have so for sake of time I wont go into the whole "Theory's or categories?" debate.

    The 18 theory's of magic:

    Production
    Vanish
    Transposition
    Transformation
    Penetration
    Restoration
    Animation
    Anti-Gravity/Levitation
    Attraction/Repulsion
    Sympathetic Reaction
    Invulnerability
    Physical Anomaly
    Spectator Failure
    Identification
    Mentalism
    Prediction
    Skill



     
  5. Isn't the "11th" theory of magic Evolusion?
     
  6. That would fall under Transformation, or perhaps Physical Anomaly depending.
