Read John Keel's book "Jadoo" where he goes in search of the Indian Rope Trick... fun read.
And I think the "rope" locks into place with segments and is hooked on a wire strung overhead.. .but apparently there were a few showmen who were so
good that people still think there was a "magik" element to it... especially the version where the boy disappeared near the top of the rope and the
magician followed him up and feigned an argument and dropped bloody monkey parts and then "reassembled" the boy.
Personally, I think "magik" works, sometimes, and that some few folks can, actually, change reality, and we should likely then put conditional quotes
but tricks of this sort are just that... tricks. (edit to add: to clarify, imo, if on a stage, then a trick... easy)
And I, too, am confused about the thread title... which is tricky and magical in itself!
