Magic

October 31, 2010

What we think of as magic Рusually events that we believe transcend or exceed the laws of nature and universe Рis actually what the universe is made of. The rational mind as it developed set up ideas that natural laws are how things are, laws of physics do not change, what we see with the conscious mind has authority over the unknown. The more I live the more I observe and believe far more in magic than I do in any sense of rationality, predictability or certainty. The world is utterly made up of wholly magical events. Miracles, they say, seem like miracles because we do not yet understand the laws that govern them; they are actually natural events. I say nature is magic. Nature is miraculous. We are all apprentice sorcerers like Harry Potter. No wonder these books hit the public imagination with such force. Instinctively we know it is true.
