Recently I was going through my morning ritual of moves and effects/routines and realized something. We as magicians are people that induce a false sense of reality where the boundary of what is possible and not possible are non-existent. Then we do something like a for ace production which at a glance is impressive but at it’s very core not a magical effect but a feat of skill. What is the point of doing them when it’s not a magical effect. To clarify I don’t mean like a production from the pocket or some impossible location, but from the deck. In the beginning I thought going up to people and producing the four aces justified why people should pay attention for a few moments; however, the more I began to look back on my past performances I realized that I didn’t know why I produced four aces. I was just doing it for the fact that I needed something fast to catch people's attention. I know that this topic is a bit weird/not that important but I think it's a interesting topic. What are your thoughts on the subject?
