Thought du jour from Log base 2

God didn't design humans. Natural selection did it for Her.

By the way, when I googled "thought du jour" just now, I got "about 23,100" results. Double by-the-way, does anyone have a roughly precise (if you know what I mean) notion of what Google means by "about x results"? Triple by-the-way, it almost goes without saying: props to Google!

No certainty attached, but Nick I have found myself inclined towards this view for past couple of years.

There is no need to labour when Will can magically come into being. That magic, however, is not magical to those who are part of the magic itself! They read the process from within and gather its always been like that: systematic, predictable and orderly. And the magic for them becomes science!

I'm reminded of something Arthur C. Clarke wrote: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Double checking that quotation just now, I learned that Larry Niven later inverted it: "Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology." Is that what you mean when you write that "the magic for them becomes science"?

Yes thats exactly what I meant. In my opinion, what distinguishes magic from science is the knowledge and understanding of the process(es) involved. But tricks I differentiate from magic
