Magick has been a part of human history since the discovery of fire, from the great magis’ of Egyptian lore, to the modern kaotes of today. Magick has been a part of human lore for quite some time now but no one has been able to explain it, or come close to proving it to the masses.
Yet, we have thousands of practitioners all around the work partaking in this art. Why? If I’m such a logical person, choose to spend my time in research, follow and practice such an arcane and archaic paradigm of the world.
This is a complicated answer that boils down to personal beliefs and a gamble.
For one thing, it is my belief to be open minded and not to choose to close any doors in expanding and evolving human evolution.
I believe that magick is one of the paths that one can.
Even with the growth and evolution of science, there’s still a whole lot of things in the universe that one can’t explain, and the more we delve into the scientific studies, a lot more things come into light that we can’t explain (i.e how the brain works, or gravity).
Think of the things we have now, that people of the past did not have. In their eyes, cellphones and guns would’ve witchcraft and sorcery.
I truly believe some aspects of magick are futuristic science that we haven’t been able to explain, and it such a bizarre and archaic subject that no one really wants to study it in light of the modern era.
Secondly, for me, there has been enough patterns for me to resolve that magick exists.
Personally, I’ve experienced some things that can’t be explained by mass hysteria or a proper trick. There are tons of reports out there from people as well who have shared the same, albeit somewhat different, experiences but the data is there; there are enough people experiencing the same thing so unless it can be properly discounted by hard facts, the there is still room enough to at least be open about it.
Art & Science?
During my time and research, I’ve found that even with all of the social and regional aspects that affects magical systems and traditions of current and past – they all hold a very humanistic touch to them.
From ritual garbs and gestures from the choice of materials to choose, from how high level constructs (aka demons, deities from Greek mythology, etc) closely resemble human aspects.
That’s why I believe that magick is an art first, backed by future science.
It is driven by emotion and imagination, and is powered by forces beyond our recognition and measure.
It is a personal power.
Where To Go?
To be honest, I don’t know where the flow will take it and us but all I know if I will follow the path of finding out the truth behind this universe.
