Well said all four of you. The point also is to preserve some of the little quality magic discussion that goes on around here, as well as actually encourage it. Most of the discussion, or compositions get buried under "what do I buy with $30 bucks" topics.
I am sure the majority will be appreciative of a forum such as this where they can kick back and read about magic theory, philosophical, sociological, and personal presentation philosophies of others to name a few. Especially by those with adequate experience on those subjects, and who could possibly save a budding magician from many of the mistakes that are so common while beginning the magic journey.
Or if not save them, maybe at least provide some insight as to how to deal with them more sufficiently, and overcome them. This forum could only help encourage the discussion of magic around here, and that is definitely a good thing.
I stopped reading that. There were too many big words.
I would consider myself new to magic, but I enjoy reading magic essays. I know that many people new to magic don't want to take the time to do this (just look at this topic!), which in the end, will not be beneficial neither those people or magic itself.
