I was thinking about how humans are fascinated by things we cannot understand. Anything which falls outside our understandings of the laws of nature
we call super natural or miraculous. If there is a reality behind this we should be able to categories it and dissect the subject like any other
subject. With this in mind I set out to categories the miraculous in order to gain a better understanding of what is taking place, this obviously is
not meant to include trickery, illusion or hallucination.
Casting my mind back to deep antiquity and moving forward to modern times I found that all miraculous events could be placed into seven categories:
1, Events caused by the intervention of multidimensional entity's eg spirits, Gods, daemons and creatures from other realms.
2, Events caused by the personal energy of a human eg the moving of an object by the mind or the levitation of a saint/ yogi.
3, Events caused by being in a specific location eg a holy well that miraculously cures sickness or a sacred temple infused with an unknown energy.
4, Events caused by touching of being near an object which has magical ability's eg a crystal, stone, amulet, sword, cup. Some object which appears to
have power which is not observed in common objects.
5, Events caused by unusual substances eg the transmutation of lead into gold, potions ointments "he drank from the flask and was restored to a
condition of youth"
6, Events caused by sound/music eg "he played on a golden lyre and the music caused stones to move/dance" or "he whispered a sacred word into her ear
and she was instantly cured"
7, Events caused by alinements/ timings, the unknown influence of planets/stars eg "he prepared himself for this time on this day as it was only then
that this miracle could be preformed."
It is my understanding that every miraculous event that has ever been preformed or witnessed since deep antiquity can be placed into one of these
Looking for ties between all seven to better understand what is happening led me to this conclusion:
A miracle is nothing more then the application of an energy (spiritual, mental, ethric or other), the nature of this energy is not understood by
humans and therefore it fascinates them....they call it a "miracle" an event not understood by them or explained by their Science.
Its only when one understands what a miracle is that they can then preform one
