magic vs. logic: humble food
Posted in the Christian Forum

Why are children fascinated by magic? Why are human beings intrigued by illusions? Math and logic do not always reveal all answers, and in these times, spirituality comforts anxieties about chaos.
Because illusions represent a loss of perception control and a creation of imagination wonder, illusions create a sort of makeshift spirituality.
In Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" (1818), a mad scientist experiments with the shocking qualities of electricity by resurrecting dead human organs with electrical energy and discovering the moral dangers of tampering with life.
If you told a mathematician that you believe that fairies are real rather than fantasy creatures, the mathematician may not believe you since there is no logical evidence supporting the credible existence of fairies.
If however, you told a child that you believe that fairies exist, the child may want to believe you out of curiosity about Earth's natural sensitive wonders and uncertainties. Because mathematicians also rely on a natural innocence and wonder about the enigma and majesty of number theory, it is odd that mathematicians would close themselves off from thoughts about magic and fantasy, but they do.
So the world is divided between logic and magic. Those who endorse magic cite the unreliability of logic in the face of human species humilities. Those who endorse logic cite the unverifiability of magic in the face of natural curiosities about illusions.
Perhaps the best conclusion is to suggest that fantasy-empathy Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Tales from the Darkside: The Movie" (1990) and "Toys" (1992) represent uncertainty forgiveness symbolism.
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
