Is there anything wrong with magic? | Juwon Ogungbe
Does ‘real magic’ truly exist?
What makes it different to ‘magical realism’?
An abundance of resources, the kitchen sink and the most noble intentions could be brought together, only to produce highly efficient, competent or professional goods and services that fall short of transcendence.
I was once taken to visit a parapsychologist. The meeting didn’t go very well, possibly because it could have been set up with more insight. A message was passed on to me later from the ‘master’, that I was supposed to be a wizard. This was unhelpful at that point in time, since I was living in a parallel universe, where wizards and witches were seen to be purveyors of low forces.
Several years later, I shared my feelings about the message with friends in another location. I was made to understand that a wizard is simply a person with extraordinary powers which could be used for good or evil.
