magic willpower

The natural human explanation for causes that we don’t understand.  We assume that natural phenomena occur because spirits or gods want them to.  We offer no mechanism for explaining how this willpower causes action; it’s just magic.  Ancient people probably never saw need for explanation because they were not conscious of any intermediaries between their own willpower and action.  — This term coined by Scot Fagerland
