Lucid Dreaming

In another example of science validating what *we* have known for centuries, Lucid Dreaming has, as I am sure you are all aware, gone mainstream and been validated by society as a valuable and enjoyable experience. Despite innumerable cases like this where what has always been common knowledge to us eventually receives mainstream endorsement, the overall field of Magic, (Sorcery, Witchcraft, any form of causing change to occur in accordance with one's will) is still largely regarded as "hokum", with the same people who now sing the praises of Lucid Dreaming being equally adamant in their disregard of Magic. Why? In a time where most of the world believes in one God or another, each with His own legend and mythos which is even harder to swallow than the fact that Man is capable of magical feats, people still choose to blindly accept the former as a matter of faith and laugh off the latter as the stuff of fiction. Why? How is it easier to accept that God manifested in flesh as his own Son, accomplished miracles in the name of his father/self, allowed himself/son to be killed to make up for sins of the past and which had yet to be committed by the very humans who killed him, resurrected and now sits in heaven waiting to come back than it is to accept that Man is capable of more than science can currently explain? 

As I sit here this morning reading a blog to which I go for reviews of new tech products, phones and computer gear and find that one of todays headlines is on the benefits (and risks?) of Lucid Dreaming, I find myself wondering if one day such a blog will, next to its critical review of the iPhone as boring, tout the benefits of evocation or espouse one of Jason Miller's financial sorcery techniques as a means of financial empowerment.
