The spiritual magician

That state of ‘higher consciousness’ which so many claim to have entered after a period fervent meditation is far from, as is often supposed, mysterious. They have merely dispelled their sundry thoughts and, having been freed from them, gained a sort of focus of the mind that is foreign to the usual disposition. And what miraculous answers that emerge emerge only from rationale masquerading as a higher, seemingly divine irrationality. The answer would be exactly the same had they not made that effort at all.
