I define Magic as "An opaque abstraction or an abstraction you think is
opaque until you learn better.", to a beginner, everything is deeply
That said, much of Smalltalk's opaqueness is not due to the language, but
due to me being a beginner. I'm sure there's a way to actually force sending
a message to a dictionary via something like dict['at:put:']('foo', 'bar')
but I am not familiar enough with Smalltalk to express it, so it feels like
the only way to send a message is via this multi-part message abstraction.
