Science and Magic in the New Millenium
by Carlo Dorofatti
Magick  takes every thought and act for its apparatus; it has the Universe for its Library and its Laboratory; all Nature and all that exists is its Subjects...
There are a great many people who quite misunderstand the nature of Magick. They have an idea that it is something vague and unreal, instead of being, as it is, a direct means of coming into contact with reality.
Alesister Crowley, 'Magick in Theory and Practice'
Magic is the universal Science-Art through which it is possible to work on different plains of reality and on different levels of Consciousness to contact Natural and Divine Laws and Forces of any order and level, outside and inside of us. It’s the science of the correspondences that, according to the Will, applying the right Knowledge and the Energy needed, enables [us] to overcome the limits of space and time, acting “As above so below,” on the “similar which attracts the similar,” where “Thought creates.” Magic is “the art to make things to happen.” In the most abstract sense, magic is a method of taking advantage of the relationship between Will, Knowledge, and Energy.
In a certain sense, magic can be defined as the science not yet known. To quote from 'The Goetia of the Lemegeton of King Solomon,'

Esoteric Physics is the discipline that studies the laws of the universe and all the process through which practical magic works. The main applications and studies of esoteric physics regard cosmology, space and time, the structure of the form, human perceptions and sensitivity and, in a certain way, natural medicines. Esoteric physics explores all the correspondences of the universe with the human microcosms and its subtle and spiritual aspects: it’s a real pathway to knowledge and awareness, beyond this universe, towards the Infinite outside and inside of us. It concerns the “maximum systems” of magic, philosophical[ly] involving, subtle and divine ecosystems and, most of all, the energetic and spiritual complexity of Humankind. The esoteric physics is the theoretical base of the mysticism and operative magic of the New Aeon. But it is also an excuse to tell, with new words and different formulas, things already told and known since always.
The human being is naturally prone to attempt to improve its conditions of life and to research renewed solutions to its existence. According to the ethic values that inspir
