While things and events appear to be separate in space & time, I believe the perception of discrete objects and the passage of time are illusions.  My words fail to describe the Oneness of everything and the connectedness that I am conscious of. Through this connection comes knowledge not available via normal cognition or human senses, which perceive explicate manifestations of implicate Oneness as dynamic interplay of opposites. By finding balance and losing ego one perceives more: many feel grasped by a power not their own, a few claim experiencing mystical union with God! (Note: Many mystics possess “ability to alter one’s consciousness at will”--one way to define magic. “Use of means such as incantations, amulets, and ritual” is another. Both are needed to begin discussing the concept of magic.)
