[T]he very notion of supernatural–in opposition to the natural–is a Western invention. The “supernatural realm” only came into being as a thought form after we began to understand things in a natural, scientific way. Only when the concept of “the natural” emerged was it deemed necessary by some to speak of “the supernatural”: that which was imagined to be above or outside of nature. – Benson Saler (via Saturday, September 5, 2020).
