Here is the fourth part of The Secrets of a Great Magician

7.      He covered the hole with a mat.
This statement can mean both literally and figuratively. Magicians always covers their tracks or whatever that will reveal their secrets. That is how magicians use it figuratively. In Dynamo’s case he used the statement both ways. He used it figuratively because he is a magician. He used it literally to cover up the loophole in his magic trick. In his Hand through Glass Trick, he is supposed to get a necklace that is inside a glass showcase. He is to use his hand to pass through the glass hence the name of the trick. It is quite impossible right? But not if you know what you are doing. This is where he used the literal meaning of the statement. Dynamo covered the loophole by covering the hole in the glass with a mat. Specifically the hole is in his left side. The hole is stealthily moved to the other side so he could put his right hand through without us noticing.
8.      He walked on bridge made of plexiglass.
One of the feats that all magicians wanted to do is to perform one of Jesus’ miracles: walking on water. It seems that we people are born with thirst for attention that we meddle with something that can be considered as divine. Dynamo is successful in walking on water if only for a few meters. He is a magician so there is a trick behind it. The secret is quite complex, it requires preparation of at least a day and a crew of construction workers. He needs a lot of time and people to prepare is because he needs a bridge to be made for him to walk on. He needs a bridge-like structure made of plexiglass. Plexiglass is the material most suited for this task because it is light, not as fragile as glass and it cannot be seen under water. It can also hold the weight of the person standing in it. Dynamo also needs permission from the proper authorities to be able construct such structure under water. When he is finally attempting to walk on water, there’s a bridge under his feet. To make it more believable, Dynamo stooges. There were two kayaks and a police boat while he was walking on water. The police were also stooges assigned to pick Dynamo up because he can’t cross the river. He can’t cross because the bridge is only a few meters long.
