Re:david blain levitation
I think with these things , the execution of the trick is an art in itself , so much so that you could almost say it DOES become magic !! i.e. Joe Bloggs could "do" the trick , and it looks like someone doing a trick , whereas a good magician would make it looks unbelievable.
I have a mate who is very passionate about what he does , He did Ninjitsu , and worked up to a point where he simply cannot progress anymore (15th Dan) , and I remember how he could use subtle movements of his fingers to knock me off my feet or cause me excruciating pain ! to anyone watching it barely looked like he was movin ! ..... He came into the gym last week to show me his new hobby , which is magic - and I think the things he learnt from the Ninjitsu play a huge part in his magic , He showed me loads of card tricks - Some of them I could guess "Ah yes , you put that card back on top" .... but I couldn't SEE him do it , I could only guess that is what he did !
Of course I am not saying he uses ninjitsu in his card tricks , but it is the same control of subtle movements and distractions that you do not realise are happening that makes the tricks amazing IMO
