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.

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.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
