Why are human societies fascinated by perceptual illusions (magic)? Is there something in the human psyche that desires to feel naive or deceived? It this feeling related to the psychological condition of sadomascochism?

If we look at some subliminal aspects of entertainment, we find that celebrated entertainers such as Harry Houdini are respected because of their skill with making perceptual illusions (magic tricks) and intentional trickery performances. We also find that some literature avatars that represent feminine authority such as the gender-power avatar Baroness (a tyrant character who serves as a female terrorist leader against a democracy defending paramilitary group of comic book soldier characters called 'G.I. Joes') remind audiences of the psychological marketability of identity deceptiveness.

These self-deceptive qualities of entertainment suggest that the celebrity-toned movie-based ornament restaurant franchise Planet Hollywood reflects ironically the self-deprecating value of magic-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Soul Food" (1997).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
