The Science of Magic

The great “Science”. According to Deveria and other Orientalists, “magic was considered as a sacred science inseparable from religion” by the oldest and most civilized and learned nations.
Whatever misinterpretation ancient or modern ignorance may have given to the word Magic, its only true significance is The Highest Science, or Wisdom, based upon knowledge and practical experience.
“To practice magic is to be a quack; to know magic is to be a sage.”-from The Threshold of Magical Science
“Magic is the divinity of man achieved in union with faith…”-TMS
” Magic may be said to be that science which deals with the mental and moral powers of man, and shows what control he may exercise over himself and others.” – ” Before one can become a magician he must learn to control his own mind; for mind is the substance with which the magician acts, and the power to control it is the beginning of magic.”
-Franz Hartmann
“To practice magic is to be a quack; to know magic is to be a sage.”-from The Threshold of Magical Science
“Magic is the divinity of man achieved in union with faith…”-TMS
-Eliphas Levi
“the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will”,
Illustration: It is my Will to inform the world of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take a “magical weapon”, a computer; I write “incantations” — these sentences — in the “magical language” i.e. that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth “spirits”, such as the internet, servers,  and so forth, and constrain them to convey my message to those people. The composition, distribution, and viewing of this writing is thus an act of magic by which I cause changes to take place in conformity with my Will
The will of the just man is the will of God and the law of Nature.
To affirm and will that which ought to be is to create
“Everything is possible to him who wills only what is true! Rest in Nature, study, know, then dare; dare to will, dare to act and be silent!”
