Magic or Power of Mind

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is an invitation-only event where the world's leading thinkers and doers gather to find inspiration. A recent show posted at TED brings me great interest. It is by Keith Barry, who is known as a "mind magician". After watching the show, I would like to ask a question---does the power of mind ever exist or are they just magic tricks?



I have no answer at this point. But here are two good references after you have watched this fascinating show. One is from MindHacks and the other is from Wired.

What do you think?

Hi folks, I want to become a pro magician so I was thinking since I’m young and can’t really go to bars and pubs to do magic.... I should start out with doing street magic in my town like at the mall or in the park....but do I need a license or something to do street magic? Do I need special permission? I don’t want to go out and get in trouble for not having permission or something. Please if someone could answer this, then it will be great help to me.
