"Are you watching closely?"
Every great magic trick consists of three acts.
The first act is called The Pledge: the magician shows you something ordinary, but of course it probably isn't.
The second act is called The Turn: the magician makes his ordinary something do something extraordinary.
Now you're looking for the secret.
But you won't find it.
That's why there's a third act called The Prestige.
This is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you've never seen before.
