You have seen what we have shown you.
You have seen the past.
You have met a handful of the present practitioners of the art.
You have glimpsed the worlds that touch your own.
You have seen the beginning, and you have seen the end.
Now, yours is the decision. If you choose magic, you will never be able to return to the life you once lived. Your world may be more... exciting... but it will also be more dangerous. Less reliable.
And once you begin to walk the path of magic, you can never step off it.
Or you can choose the path of science, of rationality. Live in a normal world. Die a normal death. Less exciting, undoubtedly. But safer.
The choice is yours.
