In case people have missed it, the NY times published an article covering a paper published in the journal Nature Reviews Neurosicence. In this paper, a team of brain scientists and well known magicians look at how magic tricks take advantage of glitches in the brain. Very interesting read.

The following is a link to the article:

Great article. Good to be reminded of the psychology behind what we do and why it works.

What caption do you think fits that photo of the cups & balls by Hieronymus Bosch.

How about "The birth of street magic!" or "That's the oldest trick in the book!"
Don't get even... Get odd!
