magic

Mason: Dad? …There’s no, like, real magic in the world, right?
Dad: What do you mean?
Mason: You know, like elves and stuff. People just made that up.
Dad: Oh, I don’t know. I mean, what makes you think that elves are any more magical than something like… like a whale? You know what I mean? What if I told you a story about how underneath the ocean, there was this giant sea mammal that used sonar and sang songs and it was so big that its heart was the size of a car and you could crawl through the arteries? I mean, you’d think that was pretty magical, right?

People talk about the miracle of life, and it is a miracle! Cosmically speaking, it’s magical that life exists at all, and even more magical that you and I exist. Hereistoday.com does a great display of this in terms of time, but the same is true in terms of space. I also think some parts of modern day living are magical, like penicillin, and the internet! The way my cousin in New Jersey, and me in Illinois are listening to the same music RIGHT NOW*! Maybe life is magic, and science is the explanation of how magical things happen, like entire oak trees growing from a tiny seed.

I often screen links to videos, and refuse to watch anything more than 3 minutes. That says a lot about the following 10.5 minute video. This video’s actually about body image, but the glimpse into her life is so interesting.
