Between ethereal software, debugging, and the computational complexity of manifesting, it’s obvious I work with computers. But what if I didn’t? What if I lived before computers? How would I explain magick?
A non-programmer friend asked me that recently. My reply: Probably as spirits. I’d say there were intelligent, sentient spirits, which are the same as what I currently call spirits. Then I’d also say there were less intelligent, non-sentient spirits that you could command, which are what I currently call ethereal software.
If you’re confused by the term “ethereal software,” just think of them as simple, programmable spirits.
Does that help the non-programmers among you?If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
