there can be magic without an illusion or having it be real magic such as a 3rd factor acting "Jesus rose from the pits of hell back to life" that is obviously not an illusion yet can you say thats magic?
I dont want to sound like a broken record but.Magic does exist However i am a slight magician and i can do may magic tricks that are in fact illusion. But explain Chirs Angel that is real beyond real
all card tricks are illusions and chris angel tricks are illusions some tricks might not be an illusion but just modification i seen him walk on glass before thats not a illusion nor magic anyone if they keep training could take the pain or make it in a way painless
Chris angel is not a illlusion also I dont do card tricks really often i do slight of hand illusions its pretty cool once u get good at it
