The Centipede's Dilemma

Said, "Pray, which leg comes after which?" 
This raised her doubts to such a pitch 
She fell distracted in the ditch 
Not knowing how to run.

Indistinguishable from magic

When Aleister Crowley defined magic as “the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will,” he might as easily have been describing technology. In fact, “magic” is still the word we use to encompass the wonders of a new technology before it becomes ubiquitous. (more)
