Topic: 1 2 3 4 Force or how to investigate Magic History
Message: Posted by: Beltorak (Dec 18, 2015 04:28AM)
Hello everybody,

the other day, I was approached by a friend of a friend, and we started a discussion about the importance of knowing the history of Magic, the History of slights and moves. He did ask me about a particular fo"rce, and what it's name is and who "invented" it. Now, I am a hobbyist and I had to admit that I had no idea where to start. I went through my books and DVD's, but was not able to find anything. So I wonder....and maybe you can help me with this:

a.) The Fo"rce, were you name 4 Objects and then start to count (1 2 3 4) depending on the outcome - what is it's name? and is there a record when it was first used and by whom?
b.) In general, how do you investigate such things? is there a library existing? a place where I would be able to find it?

tks to everyone for your help.
kind regards

Everyone should know at least the basic HISTORY of their own chosen craft/profession.

How much do you want to bet that if I asked millennials on the street (here in Hollywood) who say they want to be an actor...that they would have no idea who or what a "Humphrey Bogurt" is, nor a "Tyrone Power", or what "Citizen Kane" is, etc..........or any relevant actor or film prior to 1990.

Yes! "Those who don't study history, are condemned to repeat it!"
