A startling array of the broad goals of traditional magic (mind over matter, conjuring, healing, predicting, telepathy, etc.) have very recently been achieved by modern science, tech, engineering and mathematics. Intent and the state of consciousness plays a role, especially in healing, and science is helping to shed light on all of this. We review tech for reading someone's mind, seeing someone else's visions, controlling someone else's body, levitation, seeing the future, inducing trances, mystical experiences, conjuring beasts made from parts of different species and healing.  As modern science enters a new era of rapid drug development for treating symptoms and managing chronic conditions, science seems to do more to show what traditional magic and folk healing can do for healing.
