Default For BartmanHomer..What Do You Think Magic Is?

Not trying to call you out BartmanHomer but I am really curious as to just what you think magic really is? You've created a number of threads about different supposed types of magic or forces that act upon or in-conjunction with ones magic. Whether it be Eastern based magical system, moon based or solar based magical system, even ceremonial or high magical systems versus low magical, folkish or granny type magical systems.

In some ways, to me anyway, it seem's your confusing or trying to conflate magical purpose with magical system of usage. Something that has so many working facts that I do not believe one can give a conclusive answer as individual workings vary greatly from practitioner to practitioner and system to system.

So perhaps if we knew what you think magic is and how it works we might be able to present our individual perspectives.

Very well said, and reflects what I, and probably others here are wondering.

When I saw "Has anyone here done Moon Magic?" I really didn't even know what to say.

What do I think what magic is well magic is a supernatural power that you gain from the universe.

I would think about deleting the 'super' prefix from 'supernatural'.
