Where to get wands in the Philippines?

Your best shot is the internet, you can find cheap hollow plastic ones in toy stores, and if you can find a magic shop they may have nicer versions but the selection won't be quite as extensive. Also look into making one yourself or repurposing an item into a wand. Wands should not have gimmicks or 'tricks'; They function merely as tool to enhance the presentation of your illusion, that being said It is a fancy stick.

Where does magic came from?

"Magic doesn't come from anywhere because it isn't real to begin with. Illusions are real, and most magic tricks are just illusions." -Previous answer.

True and not true... It depends on the form of "magic." Stage magic or Street magic is (to the best of everyones knowledge) just illusion, a trick of the eye. And the date of the "invention" of these forms of magic cannot (and probably will not) be pinned down.

Religiously, "True magic" is derived from either the Devil, or God(s). Spirits, ghosts, specters, potions, curses and blessings (both from other sorcery), are said to be other possible sources of "True magic."

When did magic first start?

"In the early 1600's in Boston, MA, there were witchcraft trials." -Previous answer. This however, can not be considered the "start" of magic. What is known as "magic" has been around since the dawn of time, often used to explain the "unexplainable." For example, ancient humans may not have been able to describe why the wind blew, or how the tides in the ocean propelled ships in a certain direction. Many of these "unexplainable" events where deemed as being controlled by god(s). Those who understood the "will of the god(s)" or who had a higher knowledge of nature, or those who appeared to be able to control nature came to be priests/holymen(women)/medicine men(women), or in ancient Persia, magosh.

The term "magic" is etymologically derived from the Greek word magika. Greeks and Persians had been at war for centuries and the Persian priests, called magosh in Persian, came to be known as magoi in Greek; that which a Persian priest did come to be known as mageia and then magika, a term which eventually referred to any foreign, unorthodox or illegitimate ritual practice.

~Wikipedia

The beginning of "stage magic" has never been able to be pinned down, though it is said to have started much later than "priest-craft" (above) or the other forms of "true magic." There are many records from the ancient civilizations that speak of "magicians, tricksters, and illusionists," though stage magic must have started even before these records came to being. There has never been a specific event for either "forms" that can be pinned as the start. There was a brief hiatus of the use of "magic" during the witchcraft trials of the dark/middle ages and into the Renaissance and colonial period (for obvious reasons).

What is the illusion of causality?

When people chose as an explanation for an event the event that precedes it or that happened closely before it. Also by having stereotype, wide explanations. We are pushed by our nature (say common sense) to get a fast explanation. Correlation is not causation. Also see false dilemma.

Easter

Horse Isle

Why are eggs associated with the Easter bunny?

The Easter bunny and the Easter eggsBoth eggs and rabbits have to do with fertility. Spring festivals tend to be about fertility and rebirth. This is a tradition that is older than Christianity and was coopted by Christianity when it was becoming a popular religion. As a recent religion, Christianity was usually smart enough not to mess with the local celebrations but just adapt them a little bit. That made it easier for people to go along.

From pagan religion, both the egg and the bunny are symbols of fertility. In the pagan religion, Easter was the "spring festival", celebrating fertility and requesting that the Gods give good crops. It makes sense that the rabbit and the egg would be symbols of spring festival.

Easter is also a symbol of the Anglo-Saxon goddess, Eostre, as the holiday was originally named after. Easter is a relatively new adoption of spelling which was used, as said above, to help make the coexistence and/or transition of religions go much smoother.
