extension of a well-known definition by Aleister Crowley and state

which can be used to extend the limits of Achievable Reality. Our
sense of Achievable Reality is the limitations which we believe
bind us into a narrow range of actions and successes - what we
believe to be possible for us at any one time. In this context,
the purpose of magic is to simultaneously explore those boundaries
and attempt to push them back - to widen the 'sphere' of possible
"Magic is the Highest, most Absolute, and
most Divine Knowledge of Natural Philosophy, advanced in its works
and wonderful operations by a right understanding of the inward
and occult virtue of things; so that true Agents being applied to
proper Patients, strange and admirable effects will thereby be
produced. Whence magicians are profound and diligent searchers

legitimacy of the individual human will. The magician wills
something to occur which under ordinary circumstances would not
occur, and thereby demonstrates the reality of his or her own

"Magick is the art of belief."
