Provable magic

It seems that scientist have finally managed to solve the black hole information paradox. Or at least they believe so. While they can prove their theory they admit they too, don't understand the solution.

The paradox, formulated by Stephen Hawking states that while special relativity says nothing can escape from a black hole, quantum mechanism on the other hand implies no information can completely disappear. But, in the form of Hawking radiation, black holes evaporate over time leaving nothing behind. And the radiation itself is proven to be completely random.

So where does all that information then go? According to these physicists who came up with the idea, it goes to a higher dimensional hologram inside a hologram. Or something, I didn't really understand much about it. I hardly understand the paradox in the first place. And if these scientists, who have studied black holes for decades can't comprehend the solution I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Is this the limit between magic and reality? When we can still prove that something works through math, but we have no idea how and why. It's still all natural, within the laws of physics, just beyond our understanding. It has just became indistinguishable from magic.
