Indistinguishable from Magic

Indistinguishable from Magic


I just uploaded a photo of my cat to my blog. Then I stepped away from my computer to check how it looked on my cell phone.

Wow - there it was - my cat, Squeekie, beamed out of the ether. A whole minute hadn't passed.

Here's the Explanation: a bunch of invisible Electromagnetic Waves flew through the air with Squeekie's picture, from my house to a pile of computer equipment halfway around the world, then back to my house and into my cell phone. At the touch of a button. In seconds.

Really? Think of all those Electromagnetic Waves zipping round us all the time that WE CAN'T SEE. There are invisible. All we see are the end products - like my picture.

And, of course we believe this is how it happens - it's Science.

But I find it odd that we accept this situation unquestioningly, but we balk at one that is very similar:

I have a friend who says she receives visits from family members who have passed away. She feels that they are around us all the time. But they are invisible to most of us, and only particular "devices" (brains) can access their messages.

Most people find this kind of story unbelievable. Imagine - claiming that our poor clumsy "brains" can do the same trick as our marvelous cell phones - like pluck invisible words and pictures out of thin air.

Naa - cell phones were created by scientists, not "brains"!
