  3. The more conservative the magical tradition, the more answers it seems to have. Experience a profound sync? That’s your Yetzirah blah blah HGA. I find this leap to explanation hugely, hugely annoying, especially when it emanates from worldviews that have leapfrogged the discovery of antibiotics, nuclear power, commercial space travel, the rise of quantum physics and the formation of a global mobile network of more than two billion human beings with minimal intervening change.

    You could make the case that a magical persona is itself a skeuomorph. And, actually, there is merit in such an approach. Adopting a culturally familiar identity makes for easier onboarding as long as it is with the intention of assessing or engaging with data over a wider spectrum. Here is where the road forks between genuine enquiry and LARPing. In light of the intervening 120 years of astronomy and space science, there is no getting around the observation that core magical texts are riddled not only with blatant astrotheology but also encounters with Unexplained Aerial Phenomena. This provides fertile ground for magical experimentation that is rarely sewn. Be the skeuomorph, do not live the skeuomorph.

    When people complain about how accessibility features such as ramps, lifts, highlighting, image descriptions, scaled css, trigger warnings, epilepsy warnings, etc., makes things aesthetically ugly, they are actually revealing how the politics of what we consider beautiful have been centered around able-bodied, neurotypical people.

    When I was six years old, this was an important magazine. I remember getting so excited when I would go to the public library and find a new issue of this or “BANANAS” magazine. It was mostly filled with photos of movie and television personalities accompanied by useless information about them. It was basically “US” magazine for kids.

    "After a hot concert, Donnie and Marie like to cool down with a banana split!"

    "J.J. Walker thinks reading is ‘DYNO-MITE!’"

    "Shaun Cassidy loves to rollerskate!"

    That last one is horribly accurate.
