 Magic (illusion) Info - Encyclopedia WikiWhat.com
The purpose of a magic trick is to amuse; the audience is generally aware that the magic is performed using trickery, and derives enjoyment from having the magician use cunning to deceive them.
Magic or conjuring is a feat of illusion that naive observers would consider to arise from supernatural powers.
These are often used in stage illusions, since they allow an assistant to hide in a space that appears to be too small to fit in, or to turn sideways and assume different positions in a box when there appears be too little room to move.

 AskTog: Magic and Software Design
Magicians talk about the "delicacy" of the illusion: a bit of light escaping from what is supposed to be a dark box or the errant corner of the assistant’s dress protruding from the trap door destroys forever all hopes of maintaining the illusion.
Magicians live in both the world of their mechanical tricks and the illusory world they are creating for their spectators, but they "believe" in the spectator’s world: "All of the most successful showman-conjurers agree that you must believe in your own magic; you cannot hope to convince an audience unless you first convince yourself."–Nelms.
Magicians must be competent at the mechanics of their craft, yet such competency does not make someone a magician, any more than knowledge of a rapid-prototyping system makes someone a software designer.
