Proof that magical thinking works

There are three reasons I posted the 1144-word essay on Paul's broken computer yesterday.

First, I just needed to retrace all of the steps I had taken to see if any ideas would occur to me about something I had missed. No ideas occurred to me.

Second, I wanted the ordeal to be posted in the event I asked a computer-savvy person to review my problem. I asked no one.

Third, an insane part of my brain figured that if I posted my analysis of how it does not make sense that the computer is not working after what I did, then the computer would have to succumb to my thoughts and start working.

And that's exactly what happened.
