Always excited to learn and talk about new topics

There are several genres of magicians such as the witches, wizards, mages, sorcerers, and many others, and several games' characters and mythical account of different cultures have helped in distinguishing differences among these personas of magic and referring to the first noticeable difference between the sorcerers and wizards, which is their appearance. The wizards are usually looking aged with long beards and putting on simple attire; while the sorcerers are known to be very beautiful, attractive, and good-looking than the wizards. The sorcerers are also factually known to be younger than the wizards.


The word sorcerer is gotten from an old French word, but the wizard was gotten from an old English word. Sorcerers are known to be naturally proficient in magic and spells, while wizards take a long time to learn, master, and meditate on their crafts and spells. Due to the earlier mentioned fact, the wizards usually make reference to their magic book, unlike the sorcerers who are naturally adept in their magic.

For me, physical features do not add to the ability of a person in doing magic. A kid can do better magic tricks than an adult or an Asian magician is always the best. Physical aspects of a person should never be a basis that he is a good magician.

But if you want to look more likely a magician, you can wear something that will make you look like a legit magician. Magicians usually wear black clothes, this is to have a mysterious aura. You can also wear silver accessories like rings, bracelets or earrings. If you aim to be known to be a dark and mysterious magician, save your smiles to the cameras and perform tricks with a straight face.

The correct answer to this question is A, water. This question involves an understanding of black magic. Black magic involves the use and practice of supernatural powers or magic for evil and/or selfish purposes - this is a stark contrast the use of white magic.

Black magic usually involves the use of spells and typically consists of utilizing the natural elements. Typically, magic works with five sacred elements: earth, air, fire, water and aether (aka spirit), but the other elements are, too, a part of black magic, often these are opposing forces, in this case thunder being the anthithesis to water.

There are a lot of magicians who are aware that the use of tools can be very important. There is some equipment that they use often in order to make the trick more believable to their audience. At times, small tools can be useful. Coins and cards are just some of the items that magicians normally use.

For big performances, magicians make use of other equipment such as the place wherein various swords can be placed. There is also a machine wherein the person placed inside will be sawed in half. Some magicians would like to make sure that they have a hat because this is where they would keep some of their items.

The most famous magic trick that secret has not been revealed would be the Indian Rope Trick. The trick takes place in an open field where the magician puts a basket with a long rope in it. The rope will levitate without any support. It will disappear from people’s view as the rope will rise very high. The magician will ask his assistant, a boy, to climb the rope.

When the boy does not go down, the magician, armed with a knife, will climb and vanish as well. Spectators will hear arguments by the two and will start to see limbs falling from the top. The magician will then climb down the rope, collect the body parts, and put them in the basket. after covering the basket with a blanket, the boy reappears.

In the ancient times, magicians were not entertainers just as they are now. You may know the Bible story where Moses’ miracles were counterattacked by the Pharaoh’s magicians. Before, some magicians were advisers of kings and emperors as they were believed that they see the future. This helped the Royals to make decisions and do necessary actions.

But most magicians were entertainers just like our present day’s illusionist. They were tasked to entertain the royal family and their guests as a form of entertainment back then.depending on the country, a magician was perceived as evil and a threat to the society while some were given so much importance and sometimes were hailed as heroes.

The most elaborate magic trick in the history might be David Copperfield’s magic trick, the Death Saw. The secrets of this trick might have been revealed but it opened doors to thousands of death-defying magic tricks that we are seeing today.

In this act, Copperfield lies on his stomach on a board as saw blades are whirring towards him. Of course, the blades saw his body in half and looks like he is hurting from what happened. After showing the audience that his body is divided, his assistants then pushed together Copperfield’s two halves together and the magician rises as if nothing happened. For me, this trick is really jaw-dropping and very believable.
