A Magician's Secret To Deep Truthful Human Connections

Brian Miller's Touching Story

Magicians have captivated my imagination ever since I was young less because of what I might see but more for what I hoped to feel upon witnessing their feats, their slights of hand. It is an internal experience as much as it is one for the eyes.

Brian Miller’s fascinating story-telling of his experience performing magic for (and with) a blind man in a restaurant in his TEDxTalk goes way beyond the realm of magic. He explores the roots of how we connect as humans, how we build relationships, and how we can experience other people’s emotional perspectives. In essense, magic, he claims, is about empathy and compassion.

His big reveal towards the end of his talk is a beautiful example of our common shared humanity based on a clairvoyance of human nature.
