And it isn't pretty...The story features a married couple: the husband is a scientist while his wife believes in all sorts of magical stuff.Lots of people believe in magic, but I couldn't help thinking that if there was really anything in it, big industry and the military would be keenly interested in it for doing Big Stuff. As I said then, if Ford Motor Co could just 'magic' cars into existence, it would save them the trouble and expense of building a car factory and hiring workers.We have since learned that some decades ago the US military was inquiring into ESP for possible use in military intelligence.
