If you demand magic, magic won't help


If you need to live in a world with magic to take your life somewhere great and fulfil your dreams – 'if only magic were real' – you may be engaging in a fantasy that's comfortably out of reach so you need not even try. Realize that being in a world with magic would make it no longer special, the same way you treat lightbulbs as nothing special in this world. Thus, if you weren't studying difficult topics here, you wouldn't be studying magic there, as it'd be just another difficult topic that nobody regards as interesting. "What do you study?" "Magic." "Cool. I study art." "Bachelor's degree or…?"

Thus: if you're the sort of person to demand a magical world, actually living in that magical world wouldn't change anything, so what's the point?
