It's a kind of magic

I asked some people whether they do magic. I included magical thinking and faith in this definition if they felt comfortable with that. I had about 50 responses.

When I asked the same people to what extent the magic changed the magician and to what extent it directly changed the world beyond the magician, I got a lot of discussion about the nature of the world, whether inside the magician and outside can be truely said to exist independently of each other and much philosophical discussion I wasn't really expecting. At no point did I challenge anyone on their beliefs nor was that my intention. Should I draw any conclusion from this?
