Magic is what David Copperfield does.
Magick is what "witches" do. I believe in it ,but that's personal to me.

Miss me?

If using Wayne Dyers's definition of magic, the ability to change one's perspective at will, then yes.

If you consider "psychic powers" to be forms of magic then perhaps.

I think that if psychic abilities were ever proven it would be through scientific means.

Anything related to black magic or voodoo I attribute to your beliefs affecting your physical being. One of the simplest examples - elevated heart beat when faced with certain psychological situations.

Tim.

Edit: I believe anything we consider 'magic' has a scientific explanation and therefore do not believe in magic.

Psychic powers and magic are two different concepts.
