A true magician would be someone who could transcend the laws of nature without having to resort to gimmicks, gaffs, sleight of hand or the like.

I can be on the ground and at the same time be six foot off the ground. Without having to resort to gimmicks, gaffs, sleight of hand or the like.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

They might start a religion.

They probably wouldn't do television. Why would they need to?

There is a book and a film now. The critics say it's the greatest story ever told.
