It was commonly mistaken that magic can be performed in parallel. In other words, perform several magic tricks simultaneously.
Ask a mundane person if he can multi-task. And the answer is no. The more we try to multi-task, the less productive we become. That’s because mundanes and mages cannot switch between tasks easily. It’s not humanely easy.
That’s why we have magic. Performing magic can’t be done in parallel, but if magical tasks can be automated using magic, sometimes, they can run on their own.
But beware, magic has a life of its own. In magic, we sow what we create. The old saying is true:
“Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.”
