Rule of Three is an online piece of installation art, created by a skeptic rising to the challenge of creating a salable "magical" item. The objects for sale here are meant to evoke magic, not to create it. If used properly, they are guaranteed to do nothing more than create a plume of pleasant-smelling smoke.

Additional policies and FAQs
I guess someone out there might be asking, "Why would you buy something you know won't work? Wouldn't that be admitting you were fooled?"

First of all, I'm not here to fool you, nor do I think that I could fool you, even if I wanted to. I'm a storyteller, not a liar.

I honestly don't expect a lot of money to come through Rule of Three. It cost me $1.50 to set up, and $20 to make literally hundreds of units. The objects you see here do exist, but I made them to prove a point - that a clever storyteller and a good craftsperson can make an object that evokes magic without even believing in magic. And if the writing and images here made you come out of yourself, into a world (a fictional one) where magic is possible, without fooling you, then it worked.

Consider the actual purchases a "tip jar" of sorts. I am also aware that many skeptics collect magical and pseudoscientific paraphernalia, and this might interest you along those lines.
