Reminds me of a friend who detests all fantasy. The idea of magic and dragons is just an anathema to him.

But he is a huge sci-fi fan because regardless of how fantastical something is, as long as it under the premise that it is somehow, however inexplicable, possible in some vague scientific sense; it is cool and interesting.

I tell him to watch Thrones and just imagine that everything in it is engineered by super advanced aliens who just set it all up for their own amusement. He said he'll think about it. smile
