You seem to be under the impression that our laws of physics are absolute, and that any breakage of them requires some supernatural help. Nothing can be further from the truth, our laws of nature were not handed to us on a silver platter. They were derived from observation and deduction, and each subsequent paradigm is just an improvement over the previous one, not truth in itself. Newtonian physics gave way to relativity and quantum physics, which in turn may give way to a future unified field theory. Our human laws of physics are just attempts to understand the universe's GENUINE laws of physics. Those cannot be broken.
