Chimpanzees Love Magic Tricks


I think most people would find the chimpanzee's reactions more interesting than the Japanese magician's illusions and rightly so. It is very clear that the chimp is predicting intention, being duped by suggestion, and is genuinely curious about and appreciative of the phenomenon. We are surprised and delighted by our common humanity with the chimpanzee. Our closeness is no illusion.

Pedantic spelling discussion about Pan-kun's article on Wikipedia.

I wonder if it'll get any replies any time soon. I doubt it. ^^;
