I wanted to know what the rest of you thought on this. Do you think magic can be narrowed down to a science, somehow calculated to understand it better? The act of a ritual may always be an art in itself yet what about the force that drives magic? I'm going to hold my thoughts for now yet I'm curious enough to discuss it.
I believe magick is apart of us, there for it is physical on some level just like air. You can feel it and some can see it. As for science, it depends on what you see has science. That's rather debatable.
A random add on: There is a camera that can take pictures of your aura. There was one at the New Age festival where I live last year. Its not just the heat coming off of you, as the colors can be green, blue and red all at once. Could we measure aura's? Count them as physical and real? Though some scientist insist they aren't.

Witchcraft (Magic) has always been akin to science. Medical Researchers today are still doing what witches used to do; looking for new healing drugs, new healing treatments. Try to get a visit to a medical laboratory, and you will see magic working before your very eyes. I've been there; it's fascinating!
Okami, there are actually 2 ways they take pictures of auras. The ones at new age festivals are usually fake. You can test this by taking a picture when no one is standing there and you'll still see an aura. However there is a method that involves UV rays. It is completely safe as long as you don't over use it taking in too much radiation. It does this by maping out the radiation given off and so the person just comes off as an outline. It does see frequency (color) and the amplitude. This technique has been used for some medical research and may air may not be found at a new age festival however I don't believe it's been used for official diagnosis. They have noticed how the variations in the aura associate with body conditions, personality factors, ect...
There is also another instrument that shows an organisms "life force". It's a work in progress but you can find some videos and articles with a quick google search.
This post may be from last year but I wanted to add my two cents on the subject. Magic was and is science. Historically anything unexplained was considered magic, but over time we have learned more about the world and most magic has become scientific fact. Even the common belief that magic is a force or energy can be explained like science. Maybe one day we will understand how this magical energy works, but as of right now, it's still seen as a belief.
