Hey guys, here you will read a lot about magic and why it fascinates me. But who doesn’t? I love reading mystic stories, mystic creatures of the ancient world, but above all, I most definitely choose to be the great wizard. How awesome are they? Mumbling worlds and producing great energy spells and defeating the great evil on their way.
Anyhow, I’ve put some general info about what exactly magic is. Read & enjoy.
Magic comes from the Latin magic that, in turn, goes back to a Greek word. It is about the art with which it is intended to produce results that are contrary to natural laws. This art uses words, spells, and various acts and elements.
The concept of magic is used both to name occult science with the pretense of reality and the show that, using tricks, tries to deceive the viewer with impossible situations and out of logic. In the latter case, people know that what they are seeing is not real (such as the disappearance of an object or the mutilation of a person ), but fails to discover the secret behind the illusion.
Magic can be understood in different ways. The religion and numerous cults and pagan rituals have a magical or supernatural component. To believe that someone can return from death is an act of faith that, for an unbeliever, supposes something magical (outside of natural laws) and, therefore, impossible.
Magicians, sorcerers, and sorcerers are the ones who administer magic. Some claim to have supernatural powers and others claim to be God’s vehicles. Occultism, esotericism, and superstition are also linked to magical thinking.
Throughout history, magic lost its predominant place in the culture before the growth of rationalism and the replacement of magical thinking by religion.
In everyday language, magic is associated with the charm of someone or something. For example: “When he entered the room, he eclipsed everyone present with his magic,” “The magic of the talented steering wheel was the key to victory.”
It is known by the name of black magic to the series of acts that propose methods and ends badly seen by the society in which they are carried out. These are spells that seek to negatively affect the fate of one or more individuals, causing health problems, accidents, or the loss of their possessions, among other misfortunes.
Through black magic, the domain or control of other living beings is sought, and for this, a series of tools that theoretically give their users exceptional powers are used. It is worth mentioning that centuries ago there was no clear dividing line between religion, science, and these evil practices. It was only with the arrival of the thirteenth century that their roads began to separate.
Black magic seeks to cause harm to individuals or the entire world, given that it is capable, according to its followers, of generating alterations in any inorganic and organic matter, even remotely. The high power of a sorcerer is born from his relationship with the hierarchies of darkness. To counteract its effects, there is white magic.
On the other hand, it is called hematomancia or red magic to those who use the blood and other organic tissues for their spells. Today, many western civilizations consider it a kind of black magic, mainly when the living components used for spells belong to third parties, to someone who wants to affect.
Red magic can have relatively positive goals, such as infatuation and sexual fulfillment, although its use for destructive purposes and manipulation is more common. When using tissues of the person who performs the spell can be considered white magic.
Finally, the magic that evokes the spirits of the deceased and that controls the demons is known as necromancy. For a long time, it was practiced in the courts of kings and pontiffs, until the scholastic theology managed to eradicate it.
