It's all about magic.
In Russia, there is a holyday, that's celebrated every 23th of February. I's called Day of the Defender of the Fatherland. At this holiday women give gifts to men. Some years ago I was working as a network administrator in small Magadan company. And our women have gifted us teacups. They printed on it our names and our positions in old-fantasy style. For example, the Director's cup was named "King", the driver's one - "Cabman". My cup was named "Wizard". This was the best compliment in my work:)
So then I thought, that it's not far away from the truth. The magic is around us, we don't mean our lifes without it.
The modern technologies is real magic.
Think about it:
-You can talk to your friend from other side of the Earth just by pressing some buttons with telecommunication.
-You may light up your house, heat up your food with electricity.
-You can move over hundreds kilometers on your vehicle and all you need to know - what to press and how to drive. The other things are just happening by themselves, without you.
And there are magicians, sorcerers who know this magic. They studied it in universities, know it's laws. They use some magic instruments to make miracles happen. They build magic things, fix it when they broke up and make it do what it's needed to do. Engineers
There is also some magic energy, that is extracted in special places and/or from special materials. Without this energy there will be no magic. You need to power magic things up to make them work. Electricity
When you have two IP phones in different countries connected to the internet, they are just a bunch of plastic and metal. But power it up with electricity and find someone who can configure them and you will have miracle happen. A man from Russia can hear and talk to man in USA as he would be in the same room.
If you try to think about it seriously, you may find out that almost everything around you is like magic. You have just got used to it. You consider it quite common, and simple. But the truth is that magic is around us and we cannot live without it for a very long time.
