The goal should be restated as an *objective* observation and measurement of magickal phenomenon(sp?), additionally to record facts that are
repeatable through said observation, yet remaining objective about the task?
First an observation needs to be made:
Kirilian photography comes to mind, it would be interesting from an objective
point of view to K. Photograph various magickal riturals(i.e. sampling) as each practice occurs. I would recommend a side research for better
instrumentation such as a K. Video Camera instead of single cells(another topic in it's own right I am sure). After images are taken, check for
variences in both Lum's, candles, or even theoritical watts, (all of course are metrics used in measuring the intensity of light), from said K.
photos. It may even prove beneficial to record any significant data from the photovoltiacs to if there is a correlation there too. One last tool comes
to mind that may be of use for an expidition such as this, a Quantum Field Analysis Toolkit. Too bad a portable model doesn't exist. I do seriously
suspect that when Magick is in a state of flux, that certain Quantum fields are manipulated.(at least for subtle forms of magick)
Once someone(preferably, multiple someones
) have made some observations using ideas simular to what I have previously described, then perhaps
we will have more information to begin work on a fact based hypothesis, even perhaps a guinine theory.. time will tell...
just my 2¢
Edited for an Afterthought:
Pehaps some forms of sympathetic Magick could be self/group induced forms of pavlov's bell/dog.. just a thunk...
