Interesting stuff. I wonder how he explained away that very sorry showing to his students. Obviously Reality Man was doing some sort of sneaky counter magic that allowed him to get through Magic Man's magic. I wonder of Magic Man really believed that he had that power.

Here is another one:

Yes, the video in cittasanto;s post is actually in the interview with Sam Harris on faith, martial arts and meditation that I created a thread on here.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
