Choose Magic over Science!


Heian aristocrats were highly artistic, but remarkably disinterested in intellectual pursuits. Their lack of rational and scientific knowledge combined with belief in magic from earlier Japanese societies created a deeply superstitious people.

As such, Heian-era people believed in taboos, spirits, ritual purity, and katatagae, or changing directions to avoid harm.

Whatever that is

Why not apply such thinking today?

The next e a friend of yours attempts to lend credence to a point with a condescending “it’s science” or “it’s fact”, try laughing in their face. You don’t believe in science! You’re Heian.

You trust magic.
