Just a brief note on Cletus' writeup, above.

If we take the view (as Cletus obviously does not) that the scope of science extends to the whole arena of causality, Cletus' interesting definition:

'using means beyond the scope of science, to cause [...]'
would make 'manipulative magic' a null field.

As a non-occultist, I can live with that consequence, but practitioners less philosophically motivated (dare I say sophisticated?) than Mr Foetus may find Aleister Crowley's definition:

'Magick is the Art and Science of causing change in conformity with Will'
to be less of a strain.

If so, they may appreciate his motto:

We place no reliance
On Virgin or Pigeon
Our Method is Science
Our aim is Religion.
