We used to have people calling other people witches. Now we have a lot of Fantasy books, movies and games that show us about so called magic. We have magicians, but, today there is a myth on that. Some people say they use demons. Some others think they are angels.
Who knows, maybe we really are in a "Matrix" and those who control us is doing the impossible things that many people can't do. Like how Neo was superman like flying and killing the all the Agent Smith clone(third movie).
There's a handful of us here on ATS and it's no more spooky than what Christians do when they're yelling in tongues and slaying folks in the spirit.

My experiences with Native American Shamanic practitioners has proven to me that majic exist; That there is another realm coexisting with what we perceive as reality.

I believe so. We only use about 10% of our brains, correct?

The most wise phrase I heard about that was this: "The difference between science and magic is that science work with nature and don't try to change it." If magic exist it's in our breath each seconds on this earth, and not in bending nature to your will.

These are combined clips from an Australian radio show where I was asked if ritual/folkloric/traditional magic was still practiced and if so how it is, or could be, applied in our modern society.
Although words, definitions and ideas about magical systems have been replaced with modern non-magical equivalents the practices from which our modern advertising system has evolved is still a form of spell-casting.
Sporting events such as American football, are also discussed in this piece as a way to show its original parentage which can be found in religious ritual.
