Teller Tells Of The Psychology Of Illusion

The usually aphonic Teller (of magic duo Penn and Teller) speaks! And he's talking about the psychology of illusion--an insight into the mind that would help paranormal investigators. Once you begin to understand the mechanics of the trick, Teller explains, "You aid and abed the trick; because you kinda like the idea, so you're going along with it."

That's funny. I'm probably the only person I know who detests magic tricks. I think because people are going into it knowing that someone is going to snow them. It reminds me too much of the Baptist Church.
