The supernatural exists - the question is whether or not you are in tune with it. It's similar to a psychological phenomenon where the variable that
affects GPA the most actually turns out to be someone's peer group - interesting, right?
So... yes, you can get into the Dark Arts or start experiencing the paranormal, or whatever - or you could honestly be in a situation where there
isn't much real impact from that.
I don't really have much impact in my life from the paranormal this week - although in the past, it has been quite interesting, I've seen enough to
verify its existence.
“rumors of rampant witchcraft in the palace,”
might not mean a lot to people who don't take it seriously - but to someone who does, it
sounds more like a generalized statement - there might be more details there to explore, like what kind of witchcraft, who was involved, motives, etc.
- if the situation is detailed enough, I assume, the details might even make a difference in the decision to go or not.
From the link you provided, it looks like the culture of witchcraft is pretty developed in Indonesia. Funny story - even the title of the guy's book -
"There is Always a Choice" has some elements of Crowley in it, as well as the book The Alchemist
Either way, there is more to life than meets the eye of a single sheltered onlooker, or even a seasoned adventurer - although the latter probably at
least knows how to identify an unusual occurrence or something that merits looking into it further. As a math professor of mine once said, the more
you know, the more you know you don't know.
Anyway FlyersFan - very interesting! I learned about there being a developed culture of witchcraft in Indonesia, for one.
