magic

The use of spells, thoughts or ritual to attempt to influence unrelated events or to summon supposed supernatural forces. Historically, there has been considerable overlap between religion, magic and science and these have been separated only with great difficulty and, even today, incompletely. The reduction, by science, of the status of magic to childish superstition has been one of the triumphs of human achievement. Magical thinking is a feature of early childhood and of the mental processes of some adults.
