    Furthermore, when multiple competing theories have equal predictive powers, the principle recommends selecting those that introduce the fewest assumptions and postulate the fewest hypothetical entities.

      and i still dont get it...

      ...

      but i must say...

      great thread reidy...



      ...

      i dont believe in ghosts... nor magic...

      cos im a science/ charles dawrin man myself...

      but i must say that im a sucker for magic...

      it rocks my socks off!!!


      because its a great art... and when i watch it.. i always take it for its merits... as it realy is amazing.... even though it is fake... i do not try to pick the flaw when im watching... but after...

      when the amazement has worn off...

      and i have an explantion for all regarding that glass trick...

      if you look at the window in which the glass is located in.. there is one camera angle when it looks down and there is waaay too much wood for a normal frame at the bottom...

      so without mind tricks...

      has anybody heard of a automatic garage door??

      anybody??

      well i have...

      and it is imo... that the glass window is simply raised directly up behind the paper by a pully of sorts... as the naked eye cannot see the glass move when you are watching him going throught he window... and the clarity is not perpefct...

      and when he goes through it... it is simply lowered again...

      hence the glass was "always" there...

      and here is funny videos about street magic if anybody cares...

      it sort of represents my sinical outlook on street magic...
