    Ah, mystics and magic:

    “There are those [mystics] who claim that magic is like the tide; that it swells and fades over the surface of the earth, collecting in concentrated pools here and there, almost disappearing from other spots, leaving them parched for wonder. There are also those who believe that if you stick your fingers up your nose and blow, it will increase your intelligence.” The Teachings of Ebenezum, Volume VII.

    “A mystic may talk of seeking to know and imbibe the mysteries of the Universe but never appreciates that the true and the most joyous route is by drinking deeply of the scientific wealth uncovered by cosmology and physics.” Terence Meaden.

    Some sciences call feelings symptoms. They audaciously think they are indicative of something. For shame!
