This is not just another introduction into "magick" nor has it much to do with the run off the mill book of "magick" where you find at first some talk about spirituality of magick, then somewhere between pages 10 and 20 the tree of life, then elaborate descriptions of rituals and so on.
Magick existed long before the invention of the tree of life. In fact, most of the powerful magicians on our planet do not even know the tree of life. Such "lack of knowledge" does not inhibit their power at all.
Evidently there must be some principle in magick that goes beyond religious doctrine. There must be a magickal science that we can develop by examining the common functioning principle (CFP) of all magick. Equaling magick with the tree of life or any other outcropping of religious creeds would mean to falsely identify the map with the territory. The map is never the territory it represents! Such identification is always wrong, no matter how useful the map may be at first. The magickal systems that have their roots in the tree of life have been useful and still are useful. To some extent they are comprehensive as well. However, the universe is not the tree of life. The tree of life is just another mapping that has been of use for the magician for quite a while now.
present time sees an expansion of magickal methods that has been
unheard of as yet. At the same time students of magick have access
to an increasingly wide range of many magickal systems and traditions
to practice. These systems are vey different from one another. Most
of these systems are not outcroppings of a Judeo-Christian religionism.
Moreover, they are incompatible with the cabalistic system and its
tree of life, but equally powerful and at least equally spiritual.
It is my opinion that the tree of life and all other religious mappings
have no predominant usefulness for the magician of the third millennium
who practices magick on a scientific basis. The science of magick
in its true form is a science, not a religious act as many magicians
are still fancying in our aera. In the old days magick was forbidden.
Very often religion had to be used as a coverup, hiding the true
magickal form which can finally be out in the open today. I will
show in the following lessons why this is so.

The same holds with any magickal practice. Once you know the scientific principles of magick you will be able to work it in any surrounding without the ballast of religion-based "ritual." Converesely, you will be able to set up any magickal practice within the framework of any religious creed if it seems advantageous or if you simply want to do this! Soon you will realize that, contrary to many folks' opionion, magick is so easy that it can be learned in a matter of weeks, not years or decades!
To practice magick free from the ballast of any tradition has another advantage. Freedom of thinking leads to ever new and increasingly powerful technology. It is a well-known fact that tradition was always a roadblock to the advancement of any science, understanding of the universe, and technology, and that especially religion was always an obstacle to science itself. "Purity of tradition" and the belief in the infallibility of books that are thought to be Divinely inspired usually leads to rejection of innovative ideas and quite often to the organized killing of persons who advance such innovative ideas! Tradition cannot live on "as is" when innovation shows new ways that prove to be more useful. Worse yet, if such innovation threatens to free the thinking of people from the dominance of non-creative leeches of the status quo. That's the reason why these traditionalists who typically lack creativity are almost always in the forefront of hostility towards progress. Naturally they hate anything that could threaten their undeserved positions of power! If you want to develop your magickal skills to a maximum, you will do well to get rid of the straitjacket that traditions and the butchers of human freedom have imposed on you!
The purpose of this course is to give you a scientific understanding of magickal practice and a no-nonsense guide to develop the skills that are helpful in this practice.
I do not plan to burden you down with a proper definition of this word
immediately, perhaps with a lot of pseudo-esoteric mumbo-jumbo. You
know that with the word magick we describe a specific class of practices
that we can use to cause change. In the following we will examine what
type of practices fall under the definition of magick and what the elements
of these practices are. From this we will develop an elementary mapping,
or theory, that will help you understand the various technologies, or
systems, of magick and develop your magickal skills easily and rapidly.
What is Magic?
Let's begin with a few scenarios of well-known practices that we call "magick."
Case #1: An old recipe to heal a person is to pull seven hairs of that person. Then drill a hole into a vigorous tree and put the seven hairs into the hole. Then plug the hole with the wood of the same tree. The person will feel better.
Case #2: A "doctor" fabricates a doll. He puts hair and fingernails, or small pieces of clothing, of the target person into the doll. Then, perhaps at a pre calculated time, he goes to a graveyard and puts the doll into an open grave. The person whom he targets may get sick, perhaps may even die.
Case #3: An old recipe against wounds that pus: Take some of the pus out of the wound with a cotton swab and put it into copper sulfate. The wound heals a lot faster.
Case #4: Set up a ceremonial table with candles, incenses, etc. On a piece of paper draw a square with some letters inside. To the left and to the right sides of the square write the names of the people who should fall in love. Project life energy into the letter square and the paper. Then burn the paper.
Case #5: A radionics specialist takes a "black box," or radionics device (click here to see about radionics devices in www.radionics.org). Using a pendulum or the stick pad on the device, she determines the settings of the dials that help in lawsuits. Then she puts the photo of the person whom she helps on the stick pad. She leaves the device "on" until the results show.
Case #6: In a charismatic church the preacher initiates a prayer to heal in his congregation. The person that he intends to heal is far away.
Action at a Distance
MAGICK IS ACTION.
It is action that has the goal to cause an effect, or a change: change in an individual, in a group of individuals, or of a situation. The attempt to bring change is a characteristic of all living beings. It is interaction with the environment.
The second common denominator of these cases is that the target of the action appears to be distant. For the moment, we can say:
MAGICK IS ACTION AT A DISTANCE.
This means that
DISTANCE IS IRRELEVANT IN MAGICKAL WORK.
In this respect, magick expands our capability to act upon our environment.
Now let's consider a third important factor: In every case the magician uses something that represents the target of the action.
Case #1: Seven hairs (with follicles)
Case #2: Hair and Fingernails
Case #3: The same bacteria that are in the wound (incidentally the person who found out about this method very likely had not the slightest idea of bacteria, yet his mapping of the universe yielded a valid result, or technology!).
Case #4: The written names and the visual imagination of the people.
Case #5: The Photo of the person.
Case #6: The visual imagination in the mind of the people who send the healing.
Magicians usually call this representative of the target, such as hair, fingernails, a photo, or clothing, "the psychic link." For our purpose of putting magic into a scientific language, we prefer the term "structural link." The structural link can be in any form that ranges from purely physical to purely mental, or imagined.
If we analyze the six cases above we come to the following conclusion: The use of a structural link to the target makes its distance to the magical operator irrelevant. Therefore
MAGICK IS ACTION UPON THE EXTENDED UNIVERSE, OR ACTION AT A DISTANCE. THIS ACTION IS POSSIBLE WITH THE HELP OF A STRUCTURAL LINK TO THE TARGET.
How can we determine the nature of the
action? In each one of the cases above we can find something that
represents the desired action. The way in which the magician represents
a desired action is very similar to the way he establishes a structural
link with the target of the action.
Case #1: The health of the tree (its surplus of life force).
Case #2: The doll decaying in the tomb where the corpse decays.
Case #3: The sample of bacteria being destroyed in copper sulfate.
Case #4: The letter square.
Case #5: The setting of the radionics device.
Case #6: The visual imagination of health in the minds of the members of the congregation.
THE NATURE OF THE DESIRED EFFECT, OR ACTION, IS DETERMINED BY MEANS OF A STRUCTURAL REPRESENTATION. THIS MEANS THAT IN A MAGICAL ACTION YOU WORK WITH TWO STRUCTURAL LINKS: ONE THAT REPRESENTS THE TARGET AND ANOTHER ONE THAT REPRESENTS THE DESIRED ACTION UPON THE TARGET.
Now we have the following question: How is action at a distance possible and what determines the success of such action? To find out we need to compare magickal practices that bring results with those that do not work. The observation of magicians throughout the ages showed that a magickal practice fails to bring the expected results for one of two reasons:
1. there is psychic defense, blockage, or any other interference.
2. there is insufficient psychic energy raised.
The first point will be the object of a later lesson. You will learn about psychic defense and how to overcome interference.
The second point calls for further examination. We want to analyze what magicians do when they practice their art.
Case #1: The magician does nothing. Is the power within the tree?!
Case #2: It works even if the magician does not raise a lot of psychic energy, especially if the structural link to the target person is good, such as hair, fingernails, or clothing.
Case #3: No psychic energy is necessary.
Case #4: This works only if the magician develops and projects a lot of psychic power.
Case #5: It seems that trained magicians or strongly emotional persons have quicker success with radionics than others.
Case #6: In a charismatic setting the emotional power is at a peak.
Magicians of all ages knew of the necessity to develop strong psychic powers, or magical powers, to be successful. Only if the structural link is effective and when life energy is abundant from some source other then themselves do they not need to raise these powers. They realized that life energy is the medium that makes magickal action possible. In fact, our research has proven that life itself would be impossible without magical interaction with a distant environment:
NO LIFE WITHOUT MAGICK!
A strong field of life force allows quick magickal action. The stronger the life energy that connects with the target, the stronger the action upon the target will be. Magicians of all ages knew that. This power had many names such as Prana, Chi, Psychic Power, Magickal Power, and Mana.
In Western countries several scientists have established scientific models of this energy. The models that they developed were in tune with the knowledge of their times. A scientific model has many advantages. Above all is the advantage that we can develop new technologies from a good scientific theory, or mapping. This fact is as valid for magick as it is valid for chemistry and physics!
The first person known in Western history who developed a scientific model of life energy was Franz Anton Mesmer. He called life energy "animal magnetism." He developed methods to magnetize ("mesmerize") people for healing. He also set up devices that seemed to cause a healing. These devices were wooden barrels that he had filled with iron filings and that had iron rods sticking out. People who wanted a healing held these rods in their hands.
Baron Karl von Reichenbach called life energy "Odic Force." He conducted thousands of tests with more than hundred sensitive people and he developed a comprehensive theory concerning this energy.
Wilhelm Reich used the term "Orgone" for life energy. His scientific theory was the most advanced model of life energy until the development of hyper space mathematics. Wilhelm Reich invented the orgone accumulator. He used this device to charge people with life energies for a healing. He expanded on describing the characteristics of life energy.
Magicians knew all along that life energy is necessary to make their actions work. They knew "intuitively" about it. Magicians usually can feel this energy, as do about 90% of all human beings at the first try. On the basis of millennia of experience, they use many practices to develop strong fields of this energy. These practices include many different methods such as chanting, strong emotional outbursts, group rituals, sex magickal practices, religious emotionalism, and animal sacrifice. An excellent way to have a continuous and abundant supply of life energy is to use the life energy (chi) generators that I invented. You can receive more information about this device in www.orgon.org
Now we are ready for a definition of magic:
MAGICK IS ACTION UPON A TARGET, WITH THE HELP OF STRUCTURAL LINKS AND LIFE FORCE.
FURTHERMORE, WE ESTABLISHED THAT THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE PRACTICING MAGICIAN AND THE TARGET IS IRRELEVANT. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THE STRENGTH OF THE LIFE FORCE AND THE ACCURACY OF THE STRUCTURAL LINKS.
The first thing that we need to do in order to understand magick is to come to grips with its basic elements. This means that we need to learn to understand the characteristics of life force and the nature of structural links. Then we need to learn the methods to raise life force and the methods to establish structural links. With such an understanding we can perform any kind of magic. With such an understanding will we view magick as a technological system rather than some mysterious art that is cloaked in some kind of distorted religious belief structures.
After we have developed a basic understanding of life force and of structural links, we will proceed to increase the range of our sensory apparatus. This will allow us to tune into the effects of our magickal action. It is always better to "see" the target rather than do something "blindly" in the hope that the technology we employed will do the trick. Being able to tune into our magical action gives us the capability to view the impact of our action while we are practicing.
