In his book, Mastering Regular Expressions”, a book, primarily for computer programmers, Jeffrey E.F. Friedl, had this to say about the “magic” of language. He didn’t use the word, “Mindset” but he mentions the fact that the ability to understand language appears to be magic, and defines the “M-word” quite elegantly:

“There is nothing magic about magic. The magician merely understands something simple which doesn’t appear to be simple or natural to the untrained audience. Once you learn how to hold a card while making your hand look empty, you only need practice before you, too, can “do magic.” Like a foreign languageā€”once you learn it, it stops sounding like gibberish.”
