THE FOLLOWING IS VERY THEORETICAL AND IN MY MIND IS A WELL THOUGHT OUT HYPOTHESIS. BUT LIKE MOST GREAT HYPOTHESIS'S WORLD FLAT ECT. IT MAY BE FALSE I SIMPLY WANT TO START A DISCUSSION ON THE LINKS BETWEEN NEURO CHEMICAL IMPULSES AND MAGIC.

A basic course in Medical Biology is assumed.

One knows that emotions are 90 percent Chemical and 10 percent

logical. This being said I believe people have too much invested in

CERTAIN aspects of magic.

When someone wants somthing and they get it. It creates a "want and

recieve" brain pathway. This pathway will release chemicals that trigger a

want for more of said desired thing. Anything that is related to "said

Pathway" will also form its own pathway. This makes the brain suceptible

to influence from others that overides logic.I believe because many

teenage boys are the ones who go into magic the plasticity of the brain

causes these pathways to form much easier than a full grown adult.

Although David Blaine(Chriss Angel) may have amazed you with one trick

it does NOT mean everything about them is surefire 100% good. At this

point the brain has already created a David Blane= Good pathway. I

admit I have these pathways within my skull right now. They are not as

strong due to the years of practice and performing. Although logically I

know that DB (definitly) and CA(not so much) are not very good I can still

when I watch the original street magic special feel a nestalgic Neron

surging to life.

What I am trying to get at is that if you want to be a better magician

then let go of old pathways and find the course to the right ones that will

lead you down the path of least resistance.



I will post a Neuro bio chem for dummies translation in a couple of hours.

I will in a couple hours, I'm a layperson when it comes to neuro-bio-chemical connections.
