How I define magic

The ability to achieve results through the use of non-linear methods.


Good magic is the ability to achieve desired results consistently, through the use of non-linear methods.


Moral magic is the desire to bring about results without harming innocents....

Of course to some extant even after all is said and done, it is still true, that "I may not know what magic is, but I know it when I see it."

to paraphrase the classic art line.

Acausal in what sense of the word? At the most basic- "having no cause" I have issues with- for if magic works without cause, then nothing I do or don't do really matters. I'm simply hoping that whatever whim bring about such change winds up in my favor.

I find spells and methods can be tweaked, refined, honed and even codified. Though given that magic is still an art more than a science- all of that work also tends to be highly personal- and may even be counter to your own findings.
However, as shared experience increases it also becomes more and more likely that a spell that works for one person will also work for another.
