Forgive my intrusion here, but I just 'saw' something, that to me was quite new.
Science is totally dependent upon language. You know: that stuff that conveys something different to everybody?
Subtly different, or radically different, but always different.
A scientist may see something magical a thousand times, without ever registering that it is something magical.
To him, it is always something that can be 'explained', and so he sets about explaining it, thereby incidentally removing the magic from it.
To those who can see magic as magic, there is no need to explain it. That is what makes it magic. It is. It is observable, even if only once in a lifetime. Explaining it seems pointless, useless, and silly. Not to mention impossible.
We've seen here, that even big buddies like myself and Vigilance, for example, suffer extreme communication breakdown, even when we are ostensibly on the same side. It's not really his fault, any more than it is really mine. It is the manifest limitation of language to translate the ethereal stuff of thought, idea and vision, into something that can be shared by the medium of language.
Thus, there is no way for a mystic to communicate with a scientist, or vice-versa.
Each have their limitations placed upon them by - if nothing else - their dependence upon language.
Even mathematics is elastic. People often overlook this, having the idea that it is some pure and perfect language, when it is no such thing. Most of the time it holds up, and works as advertised, until it suddenly doesn't.
Mathematicians are aware of this discrepancy, but since it is their chosen lingo, and nothing else is currently superior to it, they agree to carry on using it.
Magic is anything that IS. Sometimes, that magic can be adequately explained, and thus understood. But there remain, and will always remain, things that defy all explanation.
