I'm intrigued by this connection of "mastery" to "magic" whether or not
the logic holds.

I'm reminded of a science fiction quote, "Any sufficiently advanced
technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Robert Heinlein, perhaps,
but I'm not sure.)

I might extend the idea to say that when we see someone performing at a
very high skill level, it may appear as magic.
