Allow me to disagree. I don't know a lot about what humans call science, but as a demon I happen to know about magic.
Magic is not about throwing fireballs and teleporting and other "special effects", as you post might imply. Magic is the insight (some might say the illusion) that the symbol is identical with the symbolized. Kill a symbolic drawing of a bison on a cave wall, and you kill the bison. Speak a word of power and you have the power. Hurt a doll symbolizing your enemy, and you hurt your enemy. Draw a symbol of a demon onto the ground, and you summon the demon. (Not that this ever happened to me.) That is magic.
Well, maybe we should have a thread about magic - but possibly not so destructive sounding? Is there nice, nice magic? The type that make a person happy by tickling a doll?

Next time you're staring at the reflections in a pond or lake, imagine that you live on a planet where nobody can look up. The reflection in the pond is what you call: sky.
Fascinating Arjuna. I am going to give this one some thought.
Anyway, I once was in the Surrey Caverns in Maryland, and they had an underground lake that was totally flat. When you look at the reflections, it looks like you are looking into a deep cavern even though the water is just a few inches a way. It is an incredible site that I will never forget.
Thanks again for your creative thought.
