Hi ^^ I'm just curious on what you two personally believe witchcraft is, if it is something supernatural or what some calls "placebo effect" or something entirely different!
What a great question :D EstFortis has already kind of answered this from her perspective, and it was a great post, so I’m totally just linking you her answer here. Absolutely worth the read.
MmeHW’s approach is muchly similar. I often joke that I’m so mundane I’m practically a muggle. Alright so…
In my opinion is magic supernatural, or a placebo effect?
Think about it, what is the placebo effect? You believe someone’s going to make you feel better, and it does. Does science have to break down the whys? Who’s to say there isn’t something happening on a supernatural level as a result of your belief?
Witches joke about the above scene a lot. At least, the ones I know. And we laugh, but like… damn if there isn’t a fuckton of truth in it. At least how I see magic.
(putting a read more, cuz this is probably going to be long…)
