The age of science has failed
To explain our universe in rational terms.
Consequently the power of magic
Has gradually emerged from our conscious minds
To fathom the unfathomable.
Our most distinguished scientists
Reluctantly admit that mankind is nothing
But some billion creatures,
Sitting on a piece of solar driftwood floating in space.
Magic is the art of influencing the course
Of events by the intervention
Of spiritual forces or some other occult device.
According to Arthur C. Clarke
Any sufficiently advanced technology
Is indistinguishable from magic.
Early civilization often mistook
The unexplainable world around them to be magic.
Rupert Sheldrake in his book
Seven experiments that could change the world
Has stated that scientists' attitude
Toward their experiments affect
The results of their experiments.
There is no such thing as a definite
Fact in science and therefore the irrationality of magic
Plays an important part in our rational world.
Werner Heisenberg, the leading 20th century
Physicist has stated that mass
Is a physical interpretation of energy.
Religious organizations have understood the power of magic
And therefore monopolized the interpretation
Of the supernatural to control the human mind.
The universe as a whole is beyond explanation.
Only at the end of the 20th. century
The Roman-Catholic Church admitted,
That the great visionary Galileo Galilei was in fact correct.
The second millennium has come to an end.
Scientists have to admit that the universe is magic.
