To society Magic is the supernatural. The impossible made possible.
The deep true meaning of magic is not the tricks produced, but the feelings you get generated inside!
To society: Did you see Chris Angel walk on water, that was real magic!!
Deep true example: Chris Angel walking on water was just a trick, but the feeling I felt inside when I watched was true magic.
