The Prediction


There is something in the math that forces you to pick what he wants you to.

    Just imagine that the rectangles (call them squares) are divided into dark and light squares as on a checkerboard. Moving an odd number of times will cause you to change color. Moving an even number of times causes you to keep your color.
    All he has to do is keep track of which color you are on and keep the squares contiguous.

    You could make a similar argument that a concert pianist is just pushing the right key to corresponds to each note. Does that make the performance any less "magical?"
