So I whas thinking and you know how magic is said to be highly dependant on the casters will and balive, so I whas thinking you know how empaths pick up other people's emotions, and (empaths and or clearsentiant people, I know that clearsentiant people can but am not shour on empaths) can pick up what people are thinking sometimes, whell I whas thinking maybe not just your balive, but the collective balive of man kind, you know one person is certain that it whill work, but the people who think that something like this cant work would sort of dampen the spell, kind of the same as putting something in a soft rubber block to lower shockwaves, anyway, what are your opinions on this idea
I disagree. If a person curses another person but the cursed individual is unshielded the laws of magic and science dictate it will impact. Now if a person who does not believe in magic prays for Angels and Saints to protect them, then they would be unaffected. Not because of non belief in magic but because of shielding through prayer. One persons prayer ix another persons spell and vice versa. :-)
No not like that mindlesschaos, they still get hit because they are not aver of the corse, and wount think there is one, I ment it in a way like, whell rhe more a sword cuts thro the less sharp it becomes, the magic is the sword and the collective thoughts of the people not believing in it is what it has to cut through, and it will effect the people not believing in it, and one person wont make much of a difference, but the collective of people make the spells less effective especialy if they are more than the ones who balive which are "what makes the sword as sharp as it is"
Are you talking about a group of people performing one spell with a member not believing in it? Or are you talking about someone doing a solo spell, but being empathic, he picks up on the disbelief of someone else nearby? Or is this just in general about how some of the population cannot accept the belief in magic(k) so it has no effect on them? Or is this about tapping into the collective belief system of man? (That last one - wouldn't it be groovy? Just imagine how much energy that is. Doubt a single person could contain it.)
Ok let me put it in other terms, clear sentiant people get knowledge from "the great library of thought" as some people call it, they can pick up knowledge from there, this knowledge has to come frome somewhere, it comes from other peoples thoughts (as I call it the great library of thought), clearsentiant people are more sensative to it and can understand what they pick up, but other people can pick it up to, but they dont typically understand what they pick up from there, ''the great library of thought'' is on the astral plane, spells treble thro the astral plane and impact the phyzical plane, spells are highly dependent of a persons balive in the spell, that balive is sent to the ''great library of thought'' from there it is also backed up at the astral plane it is greatly effected by the persons balive, but since a person picks up on other peoples thoughts, know it or not, than the spell is too, but to a litle extend, the persons balive is key, but the rest is just static so to speak, this static influences the spell, micro while the casters macro, but micro still has its effects so the disbelieve in magic that it gets from ''the great library of thought'' which is a bit from each person on earth in the history of earth, which is contoured by all who balive and have in the history of earth, this is subtracted and adet (+-ed no idea on how to spell it right) and influences the spell
