Anybody here besides myself intrigued by unexplained phenomenon?

Iím continually Googling and searching Yítube...scouring the internet to know the unknowable.

Time travel, parallel universes, portals...you name it, Iíve seen it all but am ever hungry for more. This kind of appetite can never be satisfied.

Today I heard about the Lordsburg door / gate for the first time. Fascinating! Seems to be a portal of some kind. Iím going to dig into it deeper.

Only one? "Phenomenon" is singular; "phenomena" is plural. (Not to be too phenomenally pedantic about it....)

But how can you "know the unknowable" if it's really, um, you know, "unknowable"?

You've actually seen these things? Yourself? In person? (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Be careful digging around it. You wouldn't want to fall in!

One can explain how an unexplained phenomenon is created but be unable to explain what it is.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Actually, I'm more intrigued by those who claim to have explanations for unexplained phenomena.

I'm more intrigued by those who ignore the explanation because they don't understand it. Then they make up some ridiculous theory all on their own that while wrong at least they understand.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Arthur C. Clarke, in Profiles of the Future (Revised edition, 1973)
Suppose you went to any scientist up to the late nineteenth century and told him: Here are two pieces of a substance called Uranium 235. If you hold them apart, nothing will happen. But if you bring them together suddenly, you will liberate as much energy as you could obtain from burning ten thousand tons of coal. No matter how farsighted and imaginative he might be, your pre-twentieth century scientist would have said: "What utter nonsense! That's magic, not science. Such things can't happen in the real world." Around 1890, when the foundations of physics and thermodynamics had (it seemed) been securely laid, he could have told you exactly why it was nonsense. Ö The wholly unexpected discovery of uranium fission in 1939 made possible such absurdly simple (in principle, if not in practice) devices as the atomic bomb and the nuclear chain reactor. No scientist could have predicted them; if he had, all his colleagues would have laughed at him.


I wonder what advanced tech exists that we the unwashed masses are not aware of.

Perhaps one day another "wholly unexpected discovery" may make possible faster-than-light interstellar travel, which might also turn out in retrospect to be likewise "absurdly simple (in principle, if not in practice)" and yet equally as unpredictable, even laughable at present.

Perhaps, Out There somewhere in the infinite vastness of space, Somebody Else may have already made such a discovery -- and is already implementing it?

I settle for slowly learning about how things came to be known, named, measured, or proved. Last night looking up "moral horizon" detoured into some history about when the words morals and ethics parted company. Smile

There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was far faster than light;
She went out one day,
In a relative way,
And returned the previous night.

Science /ˈsīəns/ noun

the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

The supposed anomaly of the double slit experiment proves nothing more than what ought to be obvious. When scientists put energy into a system in effort to see what is going on, or interfere with a system though invasive observation, the results can be effected

Heisenberg's miscalculation made history. The cubes from their project might make a good magic story.

The observer's effect is subjective puzzlement. The data support a model Einstein found objectionable.
