What do we mean by Magick?

As Aleister Crowley, Epopt of the Illuminati, 97th degree Order of Memphis and Mizraim, 33rd degree Scotch Rite, 10th degree Ordo Templi Orientis, "Baphomet" to the profane and "Phoenix" within the Sanctuary of the Gnosis, the Great Beast 666, etc. wrote:

MAGICK is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in Conformity with Will.

...Illustration: it is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take "magical weapons"--pen, ink and paper; write "incantations"--these sentencess--in the "magical language". i.e., that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth "spirits", such as printers, publishers, booksellers, and so forth, and constrain them to convey my message to those people... -- Magick, by Aleister Crowley, Weiser, 1997, p. 126

In other words, the dinstinction between "magick" and "communication" exists only in our traditional ways of thinking. The uncanny Egyptians attributed both inventions to a single deity, Thoth, god of speech and other illusions.
