Magic. We, as a species seem to have an innate need to believe in, well, magic. That which is observable yet unexplainable. Or at least we refuse the
given explanation and use our own instead. As the saying goes “I reject your reality and substitute mine own”. We have the need to attach the
metaphysical to the most mundane aspect of life.
The latest example is that film footage ISS is nothing more than a plane flying in a hyperbolic arc
). For some, it is easier to believe in a world level projection on a massive dome covering our
flat world than it is to have a small mad-made craft flying above the Earth. The simplest and logical explanations are routinely discounted as
There are many more examples throughout this site. From gods to aliens to computer simulations, it is all the same. We need to believe in that which
we cannot see, trust in that which we cannot explain. For most, it is easier to view our imagination as reality rather than understand the true nature
of the world around us.
How many ignore the scientific achievements we have made? Oh, communicate almost instantaneously with someone across the globe, send people 30,000
feet in the air consistently, have some of the most advanced computers that fit in our hands and yet, it would be impossible to create a construction
of tubes that float in low Earth orbit.
Magic. Magic can be fun. But when we deny the simplest advancements for that which we can only prove by conjecture, when we trust our own imaginations
over that which can be proven, are we then not devolving human intelligence? The world is what it is and nothing more. By no means do we understand
the Universe, but let’s take it for the existence it is and nor try to ascribe more than what is there. The Universe is amazing on its own and it is
far more astounding that what we could ever imagine.
