Don't do it, Chesh! Most likely you won't find any measurable
difference, get turned off on magick, and get stuck at red lights for
the rest of your life. Once you start trying to pin it down, it'll go
away. Magick doesn't gel with empirical investigation.

Chances are almost certain anyway that we're living in a simulation,
where bored programmers amuse themselves by letting reality slip a
little for some people who are open to the flow. Generally, this means
extropians are excluded. It'd cause too many aberrations if they let it
slip for those engaged in any kind of scientific work. Aberrations mean
long days of work tweaking reality below the surface such that the
anomaly gets all logically explained in some theoretical paper written
by a physicist in Turkey a week before the observed event.
