If the Earth Were Only a Few Feet in Diameter

My Yoga educator read this out at the end of class, its flawless ...

"On the off chance that the Earth were just a couple of feet in breadth, coasting a couple of feet over a field some place, individuals would originate from all around to wonder about it. Individuals would stroll around it, wondering about its enormous pools of water, its little pools, and the water streaming between the pools. Individuals would wonder about the knocks on it, and the openings in it, and the distinctive territories on it. What's more they would wonder about the meager layer of gas encompassing it and at the water suspended in the gas.

Individuals would wonder about all the animals strolling around the surface of the ball, and at the animals in the water, and at the green vegetation developing on the surface. The individuals would proclaim it as hallowed, in light of the fact that it was the one and only, and they would secure it so it would not be harmed. The ball would be the best ponder known, and individuals would come to implore it, to be mended, to increase its learning, to know its incredible excellence, and to shield it with their lives on the grounds that they would by one means or another realize that their lives, their roundness, could be nothing without it. On the off chance that the Earth were just a couple of feet in width."

by Joe Miller from his book entitled if the 'earth...were a couple of feet in width'.

Magic is the art of producing a desired effect or result through the use of incantation, ceremony, ritual, the casting of spells or various other techniques that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature. 

Magic has been practiced in many cultures, and utilizes ways of understanding, experiencing and influencing the world somewhat akin to those offered by religion, though it is sometimes regarded as more focused on achieving results than religious worship. Magic is often viewed with suspicion by the wider community, and is commonly practiced in isolation and secrecy.

Modern Western magicians generally state magic's primary purpose to be personal spiritual growth. Modern perspectives on the theory of magic broadly follow two major views. The first sees magic as a result of a universal sympathy within the universe, where if something is done here a result happens somewhere else. The other view sees magic as collaboration with spirits who cause the effect.
