Some days I really want to cast a Patronus charm to see what my spirit animal is, and am subsequently saddened by the fact that the Harry Potter world doesn’t exist. That I can’t test myself with magic, that I can’t see what I could do… and then I think: what’s the equivalent in the real world? And we can study electricity, and if we do well we can make things glow, and we can study chemicals, and if we use the right combinations we can make things explode, and we can study cognition, and do experiments to see how our minds work… and then it’s like the real world is magic, everything we do here is magic too, and that’s a Patronus.
