Why Do Supernatural Acts Require Mood-Setting Rituals?

If any spiritualistic medium can do stunts, there is no more need for special conditions than there is for a chemist to turn down lights, start operations with a hymn, and ask whether there's any chemical present that has affinity with something named Hydrogen.


Chemists don't need to turn down the lights. Physicists don't need to chant.
