I believe we can eventually greatly comprehend how the world works if we only “Dare to Understand.” From a 6th century BCE Ionian Enlightenment success predicting when a solar eclipse would occur—increasingly people have found natural and rational causes for observed events. Progress has come with appreciating cause and effect, solving problems by breaking complicated wholes into smaller parts, forming concepts and using them in frameworks, testing hypotheses and learning from feedback —all in building/refining an extraordinarily useful structure for explaining, predicting, creating.


Like science and technology, magic seeks to control nature, But instead of attempting to understand, magic enthusiasts celebrate mystery. They seldom try to explain paranormal gifts, spirit communication skills, ability to right wrong relationships, etc that they feel healers/ shamans/ witches / astrologers possess. Some  see “magical rites & beliefs” as “expressions of an act of faith in a science yet to be born." Some are confident scientists will eventually explain things like the healing power of faith—whether in God /gods /drug/placebo or doctor. Others feel many aspects of Reality will always defy understanding.
