Because I recognize "predestination" makes everything planned from eternity to eternity I suggest it IS mysterious and mystical because we are in a state of blindness to the actuality of what's going on around us. However, if we were insightful to the actuality then it would not be either.
I don't recognize magic either. Knowing infinity is a single cycle forming opposing versions of itself, magic is the use of that knowledge and understanding how to integrate the elements to produce something few others of our plane are able to accomplish.
Following that line of thought "creative thought" is one manifesting what their destiny require of them - the "them" means the life-force that has manifested itself as a particular personality.
Is your life-force immortal? Isn't that man actual are? How can you peach "everlasting life" via "faith in the resurrection of christ" if you consider yourself mortal? One can't have everlasting life and be mortal also. Food for thought.
