Magick and Science
By: / Beginner
Post # 1
"Magick is both an art and an science..."

I fear that some of us has forgotten about this saying. Magick isn't about what you wish it to be, it is about your life and how to make it better. Just like any other religion, it brings peace to mind and gives you hope. What could be better than doing a spell/prayer knowing it will affect your life for the better? But doing magick to be a vampire or just because you are bored isn't really magick, just lust.

Magick is an science because before we can do said spell/prayer we must understand how it works. Unlike just praying to an higher power, you learn how to use yourself, items (including natural items), and the higher power. Knowing how to use all three or even another one you have found is what makes this a science. Knowledge is power, this is what makes our religion (depending if you are pagan, wiccan, voodoo, or whatnot) different from the other major religions. We are taking a stand and using ourselves than just trusting everyone on one being.


We also help each other on this site. Help like giving advise or share what we have learned. So I hope that this has reminded some of people that have forgotten that this is an science, not some Harry Potter book.

Indeed! Magick is just as natural as science for theres no such thing as super-natural! Now if only the rest of the world can come to understand the abilities they all possess in this science.

Agreed. This is a very good post. There are many people that believe that if they believe anything is possible with magic (if this is you Im just saying my personel opinion) but this just isnt the case. Belief is like a limiter to what you are doing. If you dont believe you wont release as much energy so the spell most likely wont work. But you still cant summon meteors from the sky if you believe. That is unfortunately beyond the limits of human capability.

True true. It is just one of the few things I dislike about the site and hopefully people that are under that kind of thought will change. Until than all I could do is make a post.

Yes, Science is mostly needed in magick. Most of the laws are applied in Magick from physics like law of attraction, Newton's third law of motion and many more. Science deals with theories, observations and practical anyalsis as well in Magick the same things are applied.

I generally disagree that magic is a science. Science is typically defined as what's using the scientific method in experimentation. Also, in order for it to be considered science, the outcome of experimentation must be recorded for others perform and get the exact same outcome. Magic is not at all like this as it does not use clinical experimentation of the scientific method, nor are any findings guaranteed to have the same outcomes as recorded. This being said knowing that science is used to find fact and not belief.

However, I do agree scientific fact should be kept in consideration when practicing or studying magic. I think it's a given because the general idea is that magic does not work outside natural law.

Magick and science goes hand to hand. You cannot defy the laws of science or the laws of nature. It's energy manipulation, so in a sense yes it is a science.

Relying on science doesn't make something a science. lol

What makes science science isn't math or letting it happen. It is us humans defining what makes what happens in what order so we can predict the outcome.

It is understanding that is science.
