I just find it so funny that people, including my wife think magicians/illusionists like Cris Angel are real. That they made some pack with the devil or something. The easily forget that their official title is "illusionist" and they often tell you straight up.

We all know what "illusion" means right? Well here's's definition:
1.something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality.
2.the state or condition of being deceived; misapprehension. instance of being deceived.

You understand now? What an illusionist tries to do is convince you that what they are doing is real, when in reality it's not, it's just an illusion. Hence the title Illusionist. They're deceivers and you're the victim, the one being deceived. And that's why each stunt is referred to as a "trick" because they are "tricking" you. They tell you up front, but you lose that concept when you're deceived. Your mind loses it's functionality and goes into a form of denial. It doesn't want to believe that it's been tricked. So it makes up this false belief and reality to justify it's real. Hence the "he made a pack with the devil, theory".

It's all fake people, get that through your head. Cris Angel is just an excellent entertainer. Here's a clip that explains one of Cris Angels tricks.
