I was having a discussion about magical types of things,
with a person,
and the person I was having the discussion with
quite matter of factly,
that they did not believe in magic.
So I stated I thought that was fine because belief was actually not necessary, it could be experienced first hand.
“prove it” was the response.
name something you want.
Ok, I want a cupcake, with a cherry on the top. I want a cupcake with a cherry on top on the corner of my desk.
If you can make a cupcake with a cherry on it appear on my desk, magic is real.
I took a piece of paper and said ok,
as I drew with a pencil a picture of a cupcake, I said, like this? is this what you want?
Yes that is it, that is exactly what I want, was the reply.
Ok fine, but time is funny with magic, so give it a little time.
So, we waited.
a child came into his office and was sitting at his desk,
the child had drawn, with a pencil and paper
a picture of a cupcake,
with a cherry on top.
and left it in the exact corner of the desk.
A literal translation of the request, the exact replica of the object projected.
And then we
stopped having conversations
about whether or not magic was real.
