I have five illusions to create the sense I'm useful to six.

Once upon a time, not so long ago or far away, Randi was doing his thing to "disprove" charlatans. He wasn't just performing with a disclaimer, he was showing people what he did, how he did it and doing his best to convince one and all that he had no "extra sense" at all. Among the assembled was the honorable Senator Claiborne Pell. Pell was a firm believer. When Randi loudly and firmly proclaimed his lack of ESP, Senator Pell (an educated man) insisted that Randi had "powers" and knew it and that the "act" was meant to mislead the public.

It doesn't matter what you tell them. They make up their own minds. Just work on your skills.

To be fair, I've personally witnessed many hardcore skeptics discount many a strange event as mere "coincidence."

How many coincidences do you have to have experienced before they add up to something notable?

How true, Scott....

I just love the air/attitude Richard Osterlind performs to;an unspoken "I don't know (or allude to How or WHY) this s*** happens around me.... It just DOES! ."

"I use my five senses to create the illusion of a sixth" If it was good enough for the Master Mindreader it's good enough for me.

Wellllll..... Just MY particular style, but I don't want them to be left with any impression at all that I am trying to "create an ILUSION."

I don't claim any "special secret powers" but I don not want to burst that bubble for them that "just maybe.....what did I just take part in here?...mayyyyybe.."

While Bob said the words I'm not sure they resonated with his audiences as illousionary?

Very well said. And if Bob said that (not sure if he did or not) he also seemed to share with some of us a completely different perspective as well.

I have never understood why one would use words such as "illusionists" as in psychological illusionist, "tricks" as in mind tricks" or other words that either only magicians use or that magic immediately comes to mind in the minds of most audience members, bookers, etc.
