Errr first blog post?

I found it very interesting that in Macondo, the traditional Western views on science and magic are often switched. Westerners typically think of gypsies as fanciful and unrealistic, yet in Macondo, the gypsies bring along scientific advances that the natives have never heard of, adding to the concrete knowledge and reason that Westerners value so much. Ironically, the ice, parchments in different languages, and alchemy sets, brought by the advocates of magic and superstition, all contribute to Jose Arcadio Buendia's thirst for knowledge and scientific advancement. It seems like Marquez discredits the stereotype to adjust us to his own little world where nothing is quite what we expected.

So basically Marquez is saying that science and magic are the same thing. Which makes sense in magical realism, I guess.
I actually thought Marquez didn't approve of science very much since the characters who involved themselves in science because isolated from the outside world. Jose Arcadio Buendia was originally outgoing and involved in Macondo, but after his workshop was made, he became withdrawn from the community. The presence of science and education in the Buendia household made them kind of arrogant, since they ignored society around them and even their only family members when it came to that workshop.
