Applying Arthur C. Clark’s observation that “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” to music, art and ideas is not necessarily a bad thing. We all need a little magic in our lives – whether you subscribe to Dawkin’s ‘Magic of reality’ or de Botton’s ‘Religion for Atheists’ they can both be seen as very similar desire in humanity. Accepting the need within us to love a little social something of the world and humanity that is listened to, seen or thought and talked about as an inspiringly magical moment is a rather special thing.
This mix is about this magic – the stuff we could all replicate with instruction and time, but somewhere within our nature prefer to treat as a special talent or gift or magic – the moments when we experience or take part in something, as creator or observer, that we don’t necessarily have a logical reason for doing, but embrace and love.
And if you believe any of that, I've got a bag of magic beans I'm getting rid of for a decent price,,,,
