Santa’s magic is identified through technology.
Wired PR News.com – Since children first began believing in the magic of Santa Claus, many have called into question how the Christmas wonder can serve as present fairy to the whole world in just one night. As reported by Reuters, the answer can be attributed to technology.
Larry Silverberg, who teaches mechanical and aerospace engineering at North Carolina State University, is quoted in the Reuters report as stating “In our reference frame it appears as though he does it in the wink of an eye and in fact there have been sightings of Santa, quick sightings, and that’s in our reference frame, but in Santa’s reference frame he really has six months… He exploits the space-time continuum.”
Silverberg further explains that through compressing space, one can extend time, which accounts for the actual six months he has to deliver presents. The professor also attributes Santa’s ability to provide so many presents to nanotechnology, which allows jolly St. Nick to “grow the presents under the tree and… turn what we call irreversible thermo-dynamic properties into reversible ones.” Silverberg states “he really starts with soot, candy, other types of natural materials, he puts them under the tree and he actually grows them in a reverse process to create the presents, wrapping and all.”
Furthermore, Santa’s omnipresent power to know “who’s been bad or good” comes from what else, but the use of high-tech antennas of course.
