Magic Eludes Comprehension

Φ: Magic is the negative of what one can know. . . . Magic happens to be precisely everything that eludes comprehension.
I: But then how the devil is one to teach and learn magic?
Φ: Magic is neither to be taught nor learned. It's foolish that you want to learn magic.
I: But then magic is nothing but deception.
Φ: Watch out—you have started reasoning again.
I: It's difficult to exist without reason.
Φ: And that is exactly how difficult magic is.
—Carl Jung, The Red Book
