In a world without computers, if you wrote about one as myth no one would believe that such a thing were possible.

Everyone should understand how a computer boots because that is fucking magic…just that we can do anything like that, that it even works, that it’s even possible, is mind-boggling even though I understand exactly how the trick is done. Understanding the sorcery makes it even more fantastical.

As I’ve noted before, the world does have magic, and a lot of it, but the spells are just very hard to cast. But we are getting better at the incantations — slowly.
