It seems to me that, while Andrus' statements were factual and precise, he was lying.

Lying is the Magician's stock in trade, and whether we honestly describe the movements of a decoy card (manipulating observers into incorrect inferences) or blatantly mischaracterise a box full of ducks as being "completely empty," truthfulness is antithetical to our Art. A False Transfer is untrue, even if during its performance one says nothing about the object's location; that a lie is visual rather than audible does not change its ontology.

All Art is deception, and in this instance, IMO, Andrus deceived himself.


Leland...that was the beauty of Jerry...he would NEVER say the box was empty...he would say "the box APPEARS to be empty", and it did. Jerry never lied!!!
