The Nature of these Laws and vice versa We are now ready to go into a description of the basic ways in which magical phenomena seem to behave.

The Laws of Magic are not legislative laws but, like those of physics or of musical harmony, are practical observations that have been accumulating over the course of thousands of years, with remarkable similarity in almost every known human culture. You can consult the works in the Bibliography especially Real Magic and its Bibliography for details if you wish. These phrases are gross generalizations, but have the advantage of being brief and easy to remember.

The Law of Knowledge Essence: Understanding brings control; the more that is known about a subject, the easier it is to exercise control over it.

Remarks: This Law is so fundamental that hardly any work on magic has ever been published without mentioning it. Remarks: Most magicians quickly discover their own flairs and flaws. After all, this is a large part of what Apprenticeship is all about. The Law of Synchronicity Essence: Two or more events happening at the same time are likely to have more associations in common than the merely temporal; very few events ever really happen in isolation from nearby events. Remarks: This is probably one of the most important of the magical Laws and is directly connected to most of the others.

The Law of Contagion Essence: Objects or beings in physical or psychic contact with each other continue to interact after separation. Almost as good are objects of clothing, handkerchiefs, bedsheets, etc. The Law of Positive Attraction Essence: Like attracts like; to create a particular reality you must put out energy of a similar sort.

Remarks: This Law is often used in attraction spells, by saturating the aura of the magician or client with symbols and energies similar to those wanted. If either of these phenomena happen with psychic energy fields, they could easily cause the effects usually referred to by this Law. The two halves of the yin-yang are opposite in color, but they are identical in shape; thus opposite and similar on two different levels of reality or universes of discourse.

Yet the two halves both attract and repel each other in an eternal circular dance see the Law of Polarity below. Any phenomenon more complex than a bacteria can be viewed on several levels, so you can usually find ways in which any two phenomena can be seen as either opposite or similar, depending on which of these Laws of Attraction you are interested in emphasizing.

The Law of Names Essence: Knowing the complete and true name of an object, being or process gives one complete control over it. The Law of Words of Power Essence: There exist certain words that are able to alter the internal and external realities of those uttering them, and their power may rest in the very sounds of the words as much as in their meanings. Remarks: Many words are names and most have known definitions.

Barbarous words of power are currently, if not originally nonsense words that nonetheless can release certain psychic phenomena and states. Remarks: This Law is based on fundamental human thought processes and does make doing magic, especially with abstract concepts, much easier. Most magicians who do weather magic, for example, personify the winds and the clouds, and thus find focusing their APK upon the atmosphere much easier.

The Law of Invocation Essence: It is possible to establish internal communication with entities from either inside or outside of oneself, said entities seeming to be inside of oneself during the communication process.

Remarks: Either Invocation or Evocation can control the spirit communication processes known as inspiration, conversation, channeling mediumship , and temporary possession. The Law of Evocation Essence: It is possible to establish external communication with entities from either inside or outside of oneself, said entities seeming to be outside of oneself during the communication process.

Remarks: Evocation is the Law that controls most summonings. The Law of Identification Essence: It is possible through maximum association between the elements of oneself and those of another being to actually become that being to the point of sharing its knowledge and weilding its power. Remarks: This is the Law that controls most lengthy or permanent possession phenomena.

The Law of Infinite Data Essence: The number of phenomena to be known is infinite; one will never run out of things to learn. Remarks: The best possible example of this is the Internet. The Law of Finite Senses Essence: Every sense mechanism of every entity is limited by both range and type of data perceived. Remarks: Many real phenomena exist which may be outside the sensory scanning ability of any given entity. This Law may or may not be the same as the.

Law of Infinite Universes. Remarks: This new pattern will not necessarily be a compromise but may be something new. Remarks: Polarity should not be confused with dualism, a mistake that Westerners have been making for four thousand years and which has quite possibly led to more all-around misery than any other theological concept in history see Chapter Dualism assumes that opposites are at war with one another; polarity assumes that they embrace.

Remarks: Magical associations sometimes operate in the reverse of what was wanted; meaningful coincidences are just as likely to be unpleasant as they are to be helpful especially if a lot of emotion goes into the related situations. My guess is that it also ties in with the Anti-Psi talents. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
