Magic -> Stage magic. pulling rabbits outta hats, flowers from seemingly nowhere...
Magick->Ritual magick. Ranges from a simple prayer
to as complex as observing multiple characteristics
of the given day, the caster involved, the target involved, all astrological calculations lookuped up
in an Ephermimus, which is double checked by going
outside and observing the stars physically, noting the
rotational and vector difference from the pure north
horizon and then the pure east horizon (setting up
a physical comparison to X and Y axis's), then after
taking down the apporapriate data and calculations,
then looking up all necessary correspondances of the
involved elements so as to learn what components
(physical objects other than ritual tools) will be needed
to be consecrated, and then finally apply those forces
the element or elements relavent acording to previous work, in their most convientent or necessary form.
in other words, don't use a bonfire when a simple
cig lighter would do.
To conclude:Magick is only what the working Mage see it as. I am quite sure, for instance, Aboriginal magick
is (methodically speaking) quite different from Native American, as Hermetic Alchemy is quite different from
Just for fun!
