You know, making a card enter into a bottle, making things travel, reading minds, etc. Are they being aided by something?

It's all tricks. If it was true, you would know by now.

Magicians are performance artists who use trick props, sleight of hand, and misdirection.
They're entertainers, not alchemists.

What if some of them get assistance from other forces?

There is no "trick" they can use to read people's mind.

It's called cold reading. It is a skill, when done right, but it is a "trick".

Not in all tricks but some there is usually an audience member that is actually part of the trick. They are planted there and randomly picked for a reading. Most so called psychics use this method.
