I believe the complete opposite about both. What a dreary, jaded outlook.

It is not an outlook, it is a fact of life.

Maybe it's a fact of your life, not of mine.

The problem here is that pavi1 did not take the time to outline the foundation of his statement. In fact he is generally right with regard to most people if not you in particular.

Truth - The greater one becomes aware of the mechanics the more distant they become to the magic.

This is true whether you are an editor, musician, or visual artist.

If this is not a concept that you have been exposed to before it is worth reading about as it can impact your artistic endeavors.

That's even stupider than the original statement. It's part of my job to MAKE the magic, and understanding how much skill and talent goes into it helps me appreciate the work that others do. Maybe YOU have a disconnect from that but I sure don't and I know enough talented artists to believe that people who are actually great are all about the passion.

If you don't have any passion but are simply a mechanical practitioner, then yeah I guess you might run into that. But you'll never be an artist anyway.
