“Grimly he sat down to modify the definitions which he had believed to be so beautifully exact. He hit upon the following dodge, a phrase which he added to each definition: “---and many other meanings, determined by the context, the speaker and listener, and the idiom of the period.” Finally he stated the proposition that a word is adequately defined when it is used in such a fashion that it means the same thing to the listener as it means to the speaker. He sent this in with the hope that it would settle the matter. He was soon undeceived for he was requested the next day to define “human nature”, “patriotism”, “justice”, “love”, “honor”, “duty”, “space”, “matter”, “religion”, “god”, “life”, “time”, “society”, “right”, and “wrong”. ”
- Robert Heinlein, from "For Us, the Living

I am interested in the power of stage magic to exploit the intersections of faith and doubt. Faith grounds our notions of consciousness, while our doubt simultaneously determines the bounds of our belief systems. Stage magic hinges on the inherent tension in this circular exchange of perception, between the lens of faith and the lens of empiricism. You have to believe to be tricked.
