There are three schools of magic. One: state a tautology, then ring the changes on its corollaries; that's philosophy. Two: record many facts. Try to find a pattern. Then make a wrong guess as the next fact; that's science. Three: be aware that you live in a malevolent universe controlled by Murphy's Law, sometimes offset by Brewster's Factor; that's engineering.
