Warning: pedantic language ahead

Poking reality with a stick to see how it reacts is one half of magick. The other half is exploiting that information to make reality do some actual useful shit.

That's the difference, in Edwardian era terms, betwixt science and art.

The occult is just one such stick.

Yes, of course. But you are not obligated to act on that information. Would it be a good thing to do so? Yes. Obligated? No. A requirement of magick? No.

We're all just children with sticks. And we work on the sticks and improve them, and sand them down to be all nice and shiny. Or rounded or pointed or colored or...or...or....
