"All the terms used in the science books, 'law,' 'necessity,' 'order,' 'tendency,' and so on, are really unintellectual .... The only words that ever satisfied me as describing Nature are the terms used in the fairy books, 'charm,' 'spell,' 'enchantment.' They express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery. A tree grows fruit because it is a magic tree. Water runs downhill because it is bewitched. The sun shines because it is bewitched. I deny altogether that this is fantastic or even mystical. We may have some mysticism later on; but this fairy-tale language about things is simply rational and agnostic."The Ethics of Elfland; G.K. Chesterton; 1909

Don't get me wrong, science is a wonderful thing; occasional wonky interpretations of its findings be dammed. Broken down into the level of purity it regains much of its magic. Exploded into huge it is alchemy of the rational mind.

My stark, raving mad sweetie was all about defending the advancements science has brought. So it is to his unwillingness to embrace the absurd that I dedicate the disclaimer UM OK I AGREE. I KNOW THE INTERNET DOESN'T WORK ON MAGIC. I ALSO KNOW IT DOES.

It is a great pleasure to hold two universal truths in one's mind at a time kiss,
