These questions arise due to the adherence of the story to the basic structure and themes of a fairy tale, although, as will be explained below, the story 's structure is materially different in a way which may be explained by the circumstances of the historical period in which the story was written.

The supernatural is the set of phenomena whose causes and circumstances are not scientifically known and cannot be reproduced at will. Therefore, the supernatural cannot be studied by the scientific method, or the experimental method. Without explanation, supernatural phenomena are sometimes attributed to divine intervention (eg miracles) or demonic, or spirits (ghosts, possession), or "magic" practices. Science cannot answer questions about the supernatural, because it is above nature, it is inexplicable.
