Notes

"...'magic' [is] the development of techniques that allow communication with hidden portions of the self, and with hidden portions of all other islands in this 'psychic sea'.[2]

"Chants, spells, dancing around a fire, burning candles, the smoke and smell of incense, are all means to awaken the 'deep mind--to arouse high emotions, enforce concentration, and facilitate entry into an altered state." .[3]
