~Descartes All knowledge ( or a magician's secret) is knowable via reason
Reason is sometimes blind to facts
Ordinaryness of illusion -- '...now you're looking for the secret, but you won't find it because you aren't really looking. We want to be fooled.'
"...This machine wasn't built by a magician, it was built by a wizard: a man who can actually do what magicians pretend to do." Distinction between 'wizard' & 'magician': Magican: uses trickery, but secrets are knowable and illusions are knowable, work in material realm
Wizards: Create the unexplainable, otherworldly, work in another realm Characters & Plot
