Chi Monk: Hey, watch me do cool things.
Magician: Hey, I can do the same things. But you have to pay for it.
Science: Ok guys, it's not that I don't
believe you, it's just that I need proof, and if you claim to be able to do these things without
using slight of hand or trickery, then you should submit your skills to be tested.
Chi Monk: Ohhh no no no no. I can't do that. It's too sacred.
Magician: Revealing the trick would destroy the illusion, and thus I would be out of a job!
Science: I'm afraid I can't take you seriously, then, as a giant red flag went up when you mentioned that you would not be able to perform these
feats in such a fashion that I may witness them. Science, after all, is based on repeatability in a controlled environment.
Chi Monk: That's okay science, not everyone believes in you -- and those are the people I'm going after.
Magician: Science, you've been a dear friend to me. Without you, I could not do half my tricks. Thank you for that. But to reveal to you how I do my
trick would ruin me financially; and besides, you already know.
Science: Then I'm afraid I shall remain neutral on the subject, until the time comes that you may let me witness your feats. Until then, I'm off to
ruin these "string theorists" who think they have figured out the entire universe on paper
