Where the magic come from

I mean the practice, I know some of the theories about the source of magic power, including the popular one that it comes from the soul, but even if humans do have inherent supernatural power, from whom did we first learn to use it?

Thank you for your time.

I believe that we were created in image of the creator, So in our nature and being we are a part of all things in god where we are able to inherit grace or healing or magic in all things cause we are living beings that are part of the web of life.

Cave paintings are theorized to be spells by ancient man. [Hunting an animal to show what the desired outcome would be] skip ahead and they needed to answer the questions every generation has asked; where we came from, what makes rain, how can someone feel better? This is how a creation myth began and a God of rain and a goddess of love and so on. Through trial and error people began to discover what herbs could cure, coupled with a prayer to the God who lords over the situation.

Each generation has built onto the last, connecting with magick, eventually turning to science to answer these questions.

Everybody learns from experience, sometimes they're at the right place and right time in the world. It's like asking, from whom did we first learn to cook? Bushfire? Lightning strike causes fire? Abandon camp and come back later to find meat that was unusual but this unnamed discoverer was hungry?

Every event of the world is natural, willpower is a human experience, combine the two and you get magic or superstition or technology or religion.

The practices are different depending on the region of a people. Even the theory behind those practices can be different depending on the country or tribe.

I think that any 'power' we possess was self taught and happened on by complete error.

It would be impossible to know that "one person" discovered this or that.Knowledge doesn't really spread like that, especially in early humans. All animals have the instinct of curiosity; but only Primates have that "inner urge" to copy what they see. It is not unusual for quite a few people to "hit on" the same idea. Just take the early, albeit partial, control of fire.Many people would notice that the earth "baked" hard under the fire.Many would notice that when moist clay dried and baked it "turned into stone". The "wow!" moment would come when a few people noticed that something could be made of this "stone". It could be shaped whilst it was still clay! There you have the beginnings of making "marks" on tablets; and the beginning of Pottery.
It would be the same with cooking, with making weapons, with making tools. With each generation "copying" and improving on the first efforts.
Over many centuries, these many "improvements", all these "changes", become fascinating to Mankind. The "changes" would become what later Mankind called "magic". And so it is!
It is still being done to this day! Changing one or more things into something totally different. That's MAGIC!
