The age of science has failed 
To explain our universe in rational terms. 

Consequently the power of magic 
Has gradually emerged from our conscious minds 
To fathom the unfathomable.

Our most distinguished scientists 
Reluctantly admit that mankind is nothing 
But some billion creatures, 
Sitting on a piece of solar driftwood floating in space.

Magic is the art of influencing the course 
Of events by the intervention 
Of spiritual forces or some other occult device.

According to Arthur C. Clarke 
Any sufficiently advanced technology 
Is indistinguishable from magic.

Early civilization often mistook 
The unexplainable world around them to be magic. 

Rupert Sheldrake in his book 
Seven experiments that could change the world
Has stated that scientists' attitude 
Toward their experiments affect 
The results of their experiments.

There is no such thing as a definite 
Fact in science and therefore the irrationality of magic 
Plays an important part in our rational world. 

Werner Heisenberg, the leading 20th century 
Physicist has stated that mass 
Is a physical interpretation of energy. 

Religious organizations have understood the power of magic
And therefore monopolized the interpretation 
Of the supernatural to control the human mind. 

The universe as a whole is beyond explanation. 

Only at the end of the 20th. century 
The Roman-Catholic Church admitted, 
That the great visionary Galileo Galilei was in fact correct.

The second millennium has come to an end. 
Scientists have to admit that the universe is magic.
