This basic philosophy still stands – the world is either magical or terrifying, depending on how you let your imagination run. Whichever you pick is up to you. But the systems which run the world are based on a very different assumption all around.
This time of the year, the holidays bring back memories that allow us to see the world, once again, through the eyes of a child. This is not some sentimental side effect of the rituals we go through, but is in many ways the reason they are important. A few moments spent contemplating this over a swirling mug of cocoa can show that seeing the world through the eyes of a child is actually a vital lesson.
