The term magic can mean different things to different people. In fact, it is a catch-all word used to define things that are indefinable, supernatural, and/or mystical. This collection of articles covers topics from religious magic, natural magic, math magic, mental magic, black magic, white magic, to parlor room magic tricks. Each one is 'A Kind of Magic.'

Excerpt:

One of my favorite types of magic falls under mental magic. Nothing is more magical than hearing the song 'Lady Madonna' and instantly being back in the 1970s or hearing John Lennon singing 'Give Peace a Chance' and instantly remembering the fight of my generation against the war in Vietnam and the US Holocaust at Kent State. What can be more magical than hearing a song from Loverboy, Air Supply, or Journey and suddenly I am in a memory from the 1980s, or hearing Queen and time traveling back to a place and time that a particular song takes me back to.

What is the magic in music that can trigger a response from the brain, connecting neural pathways, and sending the mind into instant memories?

A man I know has built what I would call a magic chair. We even offer it for sale on our website. It's not cheap, but I have experienced this chair more than once. It utilizes the magic of music, not only to your auditory senses, but to your sense of touch and feeling too. It takes those magical vibrations and sends them to the brain through, not only the ears, but the body itself. This magic chair is so relaxing that people have safely hallucinated without drugs, or astral traveled to places they've never been.

I'm sure there are physics, science, math, biology, and more to explain these phenomena, but for me, who cares!. Why ruin the magical experience? It just means that we can scientifically explain what triggers a magical experience.

The magic of math is still studied by scientists. The magic of No. 9, and how those nines add, multiply, divide and result in another combination of 9 will always be magic. Just writing this paragraph triggered the memory of the Beatles White Album song: No. 9. The laws (or magic) of mathematical probabilities is fascinating, and that magic fuels the state of Nevada and lotto games throughout the country.

Is it not magic for a man to father a son, and that son continually remind the dad of his own youth? Is it not magic for that same father to love his son's son, as his own?

Magic should not be discounted or brushed aside due to the magician charlatans, or phony, hypocrite, conman, preachers of their own perverted gospels.

You were given this magic when you were born, and the rest of your life people try to destroy your magic, or use it against you. Sure serotonin, neural pathways, and other biological, electrical, and chemical functions cause this magic... but it's still magic.

TGS Publishing Note:
This is a facsimile book of an original printing. TGS invested in software and equipment to increase the quality and speed to create facsimile books. This investment helps overcome many problems of reproducing many older books, such as yellowed pages, stains, see-thru or onion skin type paper, colored paper, brown inks, etc. These are scanned pages, not 'copied' pages, and the quality of print truly represents the quality of the print of the original book, though we may have been able to enhance or darken the print. We are proud to be able to preserve this work.
