Magicology instead of voodoo

Some say science is all about values. The scientists from the last post have probably some misguided value-orientations. Neuroscientists studying magic tricks to find out how the brain works, however, are aiming in a more promising direction. Their research has the added value of disentchanting all those magic tricks, that I personally find by and large just annoying.

    What is annoying, the tricks or their disenchanting? (I remember a wedding on some sunny day…)

    I think I remember that wedding too… and that experience definitely added to my disliking of magic. With regards to science, doing research for the disentchantment of magic is a legitimate goal. Some would call this context of discovery.
