I'm still amazed at how close technology development and software in particular are to magic.
I mean, think about it.
You put in huge amounts of time to master the complexities.
You create ephemeral actors, some of them even called daemons.
You can even force your will onto the physical realm by developing hardware.
Robots are basically golems and some are approaching humunculus status.
And sadly enough, the most famous magicians seem to be mostly old bearded dudes… :F
@viciousviscosity Works also well in the context of discordianism, where magic is more or less anything that'll let you create new truths. :3
