Review: Fortysomething pair risk alienation as they pursue lost youth

posted: 04/17/2015 1:48 a.m. Discuss

It is by definition a presentation of illusion as reality, of the impossible as the truth. Because human beings often act irrationally and believe wishfully, any expert practitioner might convince a portion of the population that he owns supernatural or at least extrasensory powers. Because people are gullible and desperate to believe, the potential for abuse of magic is tremendous.
