The Virtual Reality that is Las Vegas

Where better for the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness to meet than Las Vegas. Which is exactly where they did meet, this last summer, according to an article by George Johnson in the “Science Times” section of the New York Times this Tuesday (August, 21: “Sleights of Mind“). Seems they invited some of the great magicians of the world to entertain them after the last scholarly session, including James (“The Amazing”) Randi, who once pulled a mind-blowing trick on me.
