Grant Morrison - Flick the Switch 

Here's an interview with Grant Morrison from Comicon 2001. Great stuff and well worth the read...

"That's what magic is, it's just becoming aware of the absolute obvious. And suddenly it all becomes magic, it's just like when you take acid, everything becomes significant. Magic makes everything significant. And it gives meaning to everything, it enriches everything, so I want to work with that. It's like a drug, it's better than that, it enriches the world, we can peer into the rest of our lives. Our bodies make huge armies of antibodies that never really do anything. And we don't even think about what we're doing, these huge machines that we move around in, that we operate in, and my god, that's nothing but real magic. And once you become aware of it, you pay for the Understanding, you make the Understanding applicable. Like I said, I've gone away from the occult and gotten really interested in seeing the world in new ways--like look at that tree behind you [points to the tree], that's a living thing that we barely even notice. [Laughs] And how's it engaging in its environment, and what's it's sense of me, what kind of chemical messages is it getting from the sweat that comes off our bodies, what is going on with that tree?"
