Was Gandalf Just a More Advanced Scientist?

What is Magic?


What do you think of when you think of magic? We all remember the movies, Fantasia, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. It was pretty straight-forward—magical wands, glowing crystals, etc. Only the wizards knew how any of that stuff worked.

As both a child and now an adult (well, sort of) I loved those movies and still do. They’re fun and entertaining. Tolkien is a master at bringing the magic home in a way that no one else can, but even he did not seem to understand just how it works.

What does Science say about this?

I would lie awake at night pondering how this so-called magic could happen. Weren’t there laws of physics that would prevent it from happening at all? Not blessed with a scientific brain, my curiosity overcame my lack of scientific smarts. I dedicated a good portion of my life to reconciling the vast abyss in my belief system between science, metaphysics, and spirituality because, to me, these beliefs often appeared to conflict with each other.

There is a vast truth out there that does not depend upon belief to exist: there is no conflict between science and spirituality, or metaphysics.

Quantum physics is a fascinating look into what we don’t yet know about science.

When we embrace the truth that everything in the universe is energy, that all is connected and these are basic tenets of quantum physics, things seem to fall into place. Albert Einstein agreed that “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.” He also believed everything connected with everything else.

How does this affect you?

I want my readers to consider the possibility of the impossible, to reach for their potential, to know that there are eternal natural laws of multi-dimensional physics that govern the structure and mechanics of all energy, creation, and consciousness and that our presence in the universe is not accidental, or transient.

All four of the Ialana Series are epic fantasy, a fictional story about a group of teens who discover how to find self-empowerment through the mentorship of Irusan, a shape-shifter who helps them understand the mysterious relationship between us and the universe. The story and ideas contained within are presented in a way that is easily understandable to any person of any age.

I hope you will encourage your teens to read these books so that they too may understand there is more to magic than flying broomsticks and sparkly wands. A good place to begin is with The Six and the Crystals of Ialana (currently only .99c through November 30, 2018).
