Discovery of the sense fields

"If we open the eyes of our senses, we cannot avoid the discovery of the sense fields as a magical display. It is not magical in the sense of illusion, because trickery is not involved and nothing unexpectedly leaps out of a hat. Scarves do not change colour, and there are no scantly dressed women in boxes who survive an impossible number of swords."
