Read Sturgeon's Law first; this makes a lot more sense afterwards.

At a lot of the "Wholistic Fairs" and "New Age Exhibits", the percentage would be better set at 95% -- Isaac Bonewits, Real Magic revised edition, p.207.

This is a very telling commentary. Isaac is a believer, as is obvious from his life and his work, but he knows full well that there's piles upon piles of junk mysticism out there.

Even with the possibilities he raises and believes in, a panacea is not possible.
