It’s is important to remember that Magic is not Science. Science is still influenced by Newton, scientists want reproducible data that is reproducible no matter what the observer is thinking. Quantum science introduces the observer into the role of catalyst of the observed phenomena, and this position is where magic has always stood. Science, most psychic censors, stand with Newton.

The problem is that some magicians do not understand that magic is not science. “Why not do sigil magic to win lotto, play lotto, and get a data set PROVING magic works!”, that idea happens to be my own, suggested in a time I understood less. The main problem is that even if you are successful, the result isn’t reproducible by most people, the reality of the magician’s catalytic effect on probability cannot be distinguished from coincidence or if it could, the ‘why’ and ‘how’ can’t be evaluated, magic being so subjective, intrinsically subjective.

Is magic real? Magic is real to magicians for the same reason God is real to Christians – the paradigm delivers, subjectively. And the reality of subjective proof is that it is yours alone, it cannot be ‘demonstrated’.

Chaos magic tries to hold on to something real, but only the result. And results indeed, are often far more substantial than an idea. This focus is helpful to bring us back to reality. And it may be the only thing two magicians of different paradigms can agree on.

I hold a psychological paradigm in reserve because I’ve been influenced by science too, it gives me an explanation for how magic works that’s not intimidating and allows me to pretend I’m rational. It’s not a good enough explanation because in practice, magic, if psychological, must be unlocking some awesome synchronicity.

Magic is akin to religion, the dismissive attitude many have towards ‘magic’ as other than a stage performance, I imagine its a consistent attitude towards religion too, but of course mainstream religion holds great cultural respect.

People use religion to hack reality, to manifest an afterlife where such is in question, to eschew responsibility in life (it’s God’s will), and to heal and recover from disaster. None of the claims of Christian healing have ever been scientifically verified, after all who gets credit? Christian God or the science friendly god “Coincidence”?

Magic asserts a mild heresy, often a Christian heresy if milking the “made in God’s image” line from Christian scripture, that the power demonstrated in religion is a human power and therefore available to everyone. That explains and affirms the ‘miracles’ of all religious traditions, while opening the question of to what degree do we create our own God(s)?

So I’m taking a stand that human potential includes powers usually attributed to religion or magic. And with chaos magic this is so.

Now the question is to what degree the results, themselves not concrete? Perhaps magic had me meet a wonderful man that could be my lover, but I dismissed him because I was in a conversation with someone else and they were gone once the conversation was over? You have been fired, is this a failure of your spell for a raise – or a necessary step for you to obtain a better job at a higher salary?

With ‘God’,you have the cop out of “mysterious ways”. If you’re doing the magic, you have to keep an eye out for opportunities.

Now to a psychological paradigm. Magic allows a person to believe they have an influence on how their life turns out. It really is that simple, and if magic only works well enough to perpetuate this delusion – think of the benefits! If life is not turning out well, a magician doesn’t become depressed or negative because they believe they can do something about their own experience at least! If what you need to do is believe to allow yourself to achieve, magic is the art of that belief.

It’s that psychological paradigm that has me feeling evangelical about magical practice. But I’m also a person that believes in personal responsibility in an authentic way.
