Short time lurker, first time poster. I'm sure that's a cliche. I thought I would introduce myself. I also thought that I might take the opportunity to ask a couple of questions.
I was going to go into detail about my specific interests but I'm hesitant because I'm a rank amateur.

1. What is the most important aspect of magic?*
2. What is the most overlooked aspect of magic?*

*In your opinion.
I'm eager to learn your opinions.

Welcome to the Magic Café, Verbal. You'll find that this is a place where rank amateurs rub shoulders with seasoned professionals. Your general theory questions might be best suited for the "Food for Thought" discussion board in the "Round Table" section.

Even as a rank amateur, you must be starting somewhere. What are you reading? Who are you watching? What kind of thing do you like to fool around with?
It's still magic even if you know how it's done.

I agree with Doug! FOOD FOR THOUGHT would seem to be the best forum for discussions of such abstract thoughts.

I'm not sure that I fully understand what YOU mean by "aspect". (My Funk & Wagnalls defines "aspect" (#3): "appearance presented to the mind".)

(An early Webster's defined "net", as, "anything reticulated or decussated with interstices between the intersection.)

Welcome Verbal,

Nothing wrong with being an amateur but you don't want to be rank LOL.

1. I think Wonder is an important aspect of Magic.

2. All Magic takes place in the mind of the spectator. We don't do the Magic, we help the spectators to see the Magic. It is all about communication and engagement.

We all started somewhere. Have fun.
