I haven't had much time to read Firesong's link, so I hope this is not what he was saying.
Science has roots in what was once recognized as witchcraft and/or sorcery. Science theorises
about how magic is performed. Many areas of science have been opened up thanks to witchcraft.
Medicine, Natural Science, Chemistry, practically any suject has the word science at the end of it.
So I started thinking Philosophy, Religion, Spirituality, and PHYSICS!
According to quantum physics and quantum mechanics all matter is nothing more than trapped energy. Stands to reason, that if thought takes energy, then by thinking or knowing that certain
changes can be, or have been made it's possible to make those changes, underneath all the ceremony, is the basis of magick. The key is the mind. The tools are just playthings for the subconsious.The way science and magick use the energies depends on the Scientist, Spellcaster, or Witch.
