• What Meaning Has Magic, Anyways? (The Technological God, Part II)

    While I’ve gone on about “advanced technologies or ideas being indistinguishable from magic”…? Any such magic, put in “realistic” terms, simply means various processes or concepts that are yet to be properly understood. In that same sense, seeing our reality as having been Created through something besides sheer magic is neither to lessen or denigrate the nature of our divine Creator – rather, it is only to apply new understandings and knowledge of ours in various ways relating to the nature of our own existence. As a result, it denotes only how we have continued to come further along over time and kept making incredible new discoveries all the while – nothing more than that, and nothing less.

    Therefore, there truly, genuinely is no real magic – only a lack of knowledge or comprehension. A magnet offers levitation and defiance of gravity – surely, as much of a magical skill as anything imaginable! We are quite simply imperfect beings living in an impossible world, who are of the sort always desperate to ascribe meaning or understanding to all things: Known or unknown, alike! A consequence of this fantastic inquisitiveness of ours is that, should we come across something that appears to defy our understanding, we must also place it in some form of context or reason – most often resorting to such ideas of outright magic and incomprehension.
