“What if telekinesis is real.”
My friend probably meant, “I believe telekinesis is real. Let’s talk as though it is.” Which falls somewhere between an invitation to daydream and rhetorical cheating.
But I’m a scientist. So I started wondering: What if telekinesis were real? Imagine that world, like you’re creating a fantasy novel. What would you expect to see?
I’d expect to see schools teaching it. I’d expect military research, plus research in medicine (non-invasive surgery) and physics. I’d expect telekinetic pranks showing up on youtube. If focusing really hard let you move objects, I’d expect us to use it every day.
The military research actually happened. The rest, not so much. You can draw your own conclusions.
Of course, there’s nothing special about telekinesis. This works for any claim about magick. Imagine the world. What would you expect to see?If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
