Imagine There's No Magical Thinking?

George Michael bought John Lennon's Imagine piano for £1.7m so it would stay in Britain
What about viral curses "Christmas Carol" Nemeroff?-)

I've got to say that stumbling across a Psychology Today post from 2008 titled 'Magical Thinking', after I had typed in a search for "MagicOWL Thinking" after reading a chapter in Mike Clelland's book 'The Messengers' certainly amused me.

Reading that 2008 'Magical Thinking' Psychology Today post in 2020 and knowing that George would die on Christmas Day, 2016, with one of George's biggest hits being 'Last Christmas' seemed rather coincidental to me.

"Years after his death, John Lennon went on tour.
He visited, among other locations, Oklahoma City, Waco, New Orleans, and Virginia Tech, spreading a message of peace and love at the sites of tragic events.
You may not have recognized him, though, covered in scars and cigarette burns.
But to hear him, there would have been no mistaking his presence.
On this journey, Lennon assumed the form of a piano, specifically the one on which he composed
"It gives off his spirit, and what he believed in, and what he preached for many years," says Caroline True, the tour director and a colleague of the Steinway's current owner, singer George Michael.
Free of velvet ropes, it could be touched or played by anyone.
According to Libra LaGrone, whose home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, "It was like sleeping in your grandpa's sweatshirt at night.
Familiar, beautiful, and personal."
"I never went anywhere saying this is a magic piano and it's going to cure your ills," True says. But she consistently saw even the most skeptical hearts warm to the experience—even in Virginia, where the piano landed just a month after the massacre.
"I had no idea an inanimate object could give people so much."
Maybe you're not a Beatles fan.
Maybe you even hate peace and love.
But you are wired to find meaning in the world, a predisposition that leaves you with less control over your beliefs than you may think.
Even if you're a hard-core atheist who walks under ladders and pronounces "new age" like "sewage," you believe in magic."
