The Neuroscience of Magic
From ancient conjurers to quick-handed con artists to big ticket Las Vegas illusionists, magicians throughout the ages have been expertly manipulating human attention and perception to dazzle and delight us (or scare us, or steal our watches). Of course you know that the phenomena of cognitive and sensory illusions are responsible for the “magic” of a magic trick, but you’ve got to admit it still kind of freaks you out when some guy in a top hat defies the laws of nature right in front of your eyes. Come meet magician Robert Strong as he demonstrates how magicians use our brains as their accomplices in effecting the impossible.
Creating Delight and Joy for Others
The real magic is creating delight and joy for others. Studies have shown that when you create experiences that are out of the ordinary for others, they will remember it more accurately, they will remember it for a longer period of time, and they will share the story of that experience to more people. Studies have also shown that by doing something for others, there are extraordinary benefits for ourselves like lowering stress, increasing our happiness, increasing our life expectancy, giving ourselves meaning and purpose, and altruism is contagious. Not to mention, everyone loves working with people who are selfless!
