The first part is called ‘The Pledge.’ The magician shows you something ordinary. ...The second act is called ‘The Turn.’ The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret, but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking...Every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call ‘The Prestige.’” — Christopher Priest, The Prestige
