Interesting what one would consider 'magic physics' and what one considers
within the realm of coherent probability? Many people, yes even scholars
educated in physics, astronomy, biology, and computer science; would, sadly,
be very scornful of this entire mailing list and the subjects that govern it.
 Perhaps some guidence might be in order for levels of acceptability on what
falls into the realm of reality and what is beyond the pale? Are multiple
universes magic physics or non-locality?
