Contact Juggling

Contrary to popular belief (including mine, sometimes), I do have hobbies other than philosophy. One of them is contact juggling; if you're like me before I started doing it, though, you have no idea what that is, so here's a short routine I put together showing off a few simple isolations I've been working on lately. I think it looks pretty cool, but I'm always rather impressed with myself, so that might not be saying much.

Hey, you haven't posted in a while, but I was a regular reader when you did post and enjoyed your blog.

Anyways, I was digging around in search of an old link I found through this blog, and I just stumbled upon this contact juggling post. I thought this was too cool too pass up a comment on. Your clip was nice, it had a very smooth illusion. I've come across contact juggling before through a somewhat similar hobby of my own, liquid/digits:

And because you're a philosopher, I was specifically wondering if you could pinpoint what is going on that makes the dance look trippy. I've got my own guess, but I'm wondering what your answer would be.
