The trickery of thought

When the ignorant mind looks at a card trick, it sees magic.

When the thinking mind looks at a card trick, it is deceived,
too trapped in the thoughts of how it all works, what the gimmick is.

An awakened mind is more likely to find the card stuck underneath the table, the same card the thinking mind deduces through limited reasoning must be up the magician's sleeve.

This is a whole other kind of magic, the kind that can be seen in reality.
