So here’s something I don’t think we’ve discussed here before, so allow me to instigate a discussion.
Magic VS Magick
From as early as I can remember, I was fascinated by magic tricks. Card tricks, coin vanishes, anything really. When you’re that young though you don’t know it’s a trick, and even if you are told it is a trick, that innocent part of your child mentality wants to believe it is ‘real magic’.
What exactly is, ‘real magic’? Definitions will vary from person to person, and so also will the opinion of it’s existence.
However, beyond smoke and mirrors, tricks and illusions, we have an occult phenomena we know as Magick. The spelling with the extra K, popularized by Edward Alexander (Aleister) Crowley, for the purpose of differentiating occult magic, with illusory magic.
Magick, in this sense, is the science and art of causing ‘change’ to occur in conformity with one’s will.
By this definition, doing a spell to win at your next poker game, would be magick, but also if you wanted to drink a beer in front of you, and you pick it up and drink it so it becomes empty, that also is an act of magick. Any successful act, is an act of magick, you caused change to occur in conformity with your will, and intent. It does not always have to be so metaphysical.
I’ve been practicing both occult magic and illusions for a little while now, and there is really a fine line between them.
Whereas i used to be convinced that Dynamo, Criss Angel, Derren Brown and so forth had genuine occult powers, now i know how all the tricks are done that perception has been dispelled. Pun intended.
This does not mean that there are not people out there who do practice both arts, like myself. Just like occult magic has it’s orders and secret societies, where people meet behind closed curtains to discuss their art, so too is illusory magic shrouded in secrecy.
Ever heard of the ‘Inner Circle’? It’s like the illuminati of illusionists. Highly secretive, and always advancing their ideas, perfecting their art.
Now with the new-age shift going on, and the rising popularity of spirituality, occultism, and magic tricks also. What are the chances of there being someone else like me, who investigates and practices both?
What are the chances of some of the members of this ‘inner circle’ discussing the existence of ‘real magic’ and any possible applications it may have?
You could combine both arts and take your magic to the next level.
Some magicians, like penn and teller, have been immersed in trickery and illusion for so long, they have absolutely no conception, faith, or belief in genuine magic, occult forces, or defying the laws of physics. Penn, is perhaps one of the world’s biggest skeptics. He even thinks that the 9/11 conspiracy is BULLSHIT, and people who promote the idea are shameless, unpatriotic, gullible idiots.
On the other hand, there are many illusionists who get into magic because of a genuine interest in occultism and mysticism, like myself. These kind of people with knowledge of both worlds are the ones most likely to end up in the inner circle. Being a freemason, or member of an occult order would probably help too.
Someone like Aleister Crowley for example, who was so adept at magick he used to demonstrate his ability of ‘action at a distance’ and was able to have his friend pick out a randomer in the street walking in front of them. Aleister would begin to synchronize his walking pattern with the subject, who had no idea such a mysterious man was behind him, and suddenly Crowley would drop to the floor, on one knee or both, and instantly the subject would do so also, then get up and look around very confused. Perhaps this feat does not impress you, but it’s just one example. Crowley was also adept at conjuration and summoning spirits, it was his favorite magickal art, and probably due to the incredible results it yielded.
Let’s say hypothetically, that crowley became adept as an illusionist (and who’s to say thats not all he was anyway) and would perform illusions and card tricks for his audiences. Every 1 in 100 tricks he did, could have been a genuine occult feat, but nobody would be none the wiser, because it ALL looks same, it looks like ‘real magic’. Crowley though, most likely would have scoffed at, and shunned such cheap parlour tricks, he wanted the real thing, he wanted nothing more than to dance with the devil himself.
So now both the occult, and illusions are rapidly gaining popularity, would it be safe to say there are people out there who could be mixing the two? In fact, maybe all the tricks are simply tricks, but the fame, wealth, success, and mastery of the art could easily be fueled by demonic (fallen angelic) forces, or some kind of inter-dimensional intelligence or power.
And after all, what would be the greatest trick, the greatest lie, the greatest misdirection and deception, than to have genuine occult power but convince the world you are a fraud, trickster? Being heralded as a great master of illusions and psychology, but never having your occult knowledge revealed to the masses? Pretty sly right? As for a motive behind that agenda, i’ll leave that for you to guesstimate.
Now there are 2 reasons i’m bringing this to attention.
Firstly is the recent film ‘Now You See Me’, which i enjoyed thoroughly and found it very interesting. I never expected to see a hollywood big budget movie made about illusions and magicians. The only one i knew of before this was ‘The Illusionist’. I recommend that too.
If you don’t want to know anything about this film. Do not read this part. To summarize, the film is about 4 magicians highly skilled in their own trade. You have a street magician, a stage magician, a hypnotist/mentalist, and a professional con-man/pickpocket. Take careful notice of the fact this team call themselves The Four Horsemen. This is no mistake or coincidence, think about it.
Each of these 4 characters mysteriously find upon their person, a tarot card. The backs of these cards have the illuminati eye on it.
They say these cards are invitations from a group/organization known only as ‘The Eye’. Every 30 years or something they pick out one or two magicians who have proved themselves worthy to join the club. Eventually, all 4 prove themselves and make it to ‘The Eye’ at the end of the movie. Forgive me because so much in the film isn’t explained, and the ending was a total cliffhanger, so I hope there is a sequel. What was waiting for them at the eye? Their ‘right and privilege’ to learn the secrets of, and I quote: “Real Magic”
Nothing more about it is said!
Don’t you think this is a little weird? Oh, not to mention that the concept used by magicians to perform many tricks, is the same concept used by the illuminati to brainwash people and stay hidden in the shadows. We know this principle as: “HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT”
Here are some of the quotes from the movie:
"First rule of magic, be the smartest guy in the room"
"the bank was the distraction, now they set up the real trick"
"Whatever this grand trick is, it was designed a long time ago"
"I believe what is going to follow…is really going to amaze…"
"look closely…..for the closer you think you are, the less you’ll actually see"
Watch this trailer. The first few seconds show:
•Name ARCO seen on top of tower
•Magician creates bubble inside which a woman floats= ascension of the consciousness?
•Woman’s clothes ripped off = REVELATION, the revealing.
•Hand screwing in and lighting a light bulb = elingtening
•Teleportation device has two cyllindrical ‘towers’ on either side. Much like the Freemason pillars of Joachim & Boaz.
Their symbol looks like a group of WTC-tower-like rectangles. This is what I see in the logo:

The movie shows a lot of locks chained onto railings in Paris, with the keys thrown away, meaning “Secrets that have been locked away “
The logo of the Four Horsemen also looks like a key.
Reminds me of the Vatican Key layout in the Vatican:
The last scene in the movies shows the river bed with hundreds of keys lying around. Keys to secrets being thrown away never to be revealed. It’s almost like the film was used for ‘predictive programming’ or as a secret message to elitists that something big is about to go down. According to the most paranoid of the conspiracy realists, this may be due sometime for this October, or Nov 11.
”An illusion it will be, so large, so vast it will escape their perception.
………They must never, ever find out what we have done, for if they do, we shall have no place to run, for it will be easy to see who we are once the veil has fallen.
Our actions will have revealed who we are and they will hunt us down and no person shall give us shelter.
This is the Secret Covenant by which we shall live the rest of our present and future lives, for this reality will transcend many generations and life spans.
This covenant is sealed by blood, our blood. We, the ones who from heaven to earth came.
This covenant must NEVER, EVER be known to exist.
It must NEVER, EVER be written or spoken of for if it is, the consciousness it will spawn will release the fury of the PRIME CREATOR upon us and we shall be cast to the depths from whence we came and remain there until the end time of infinity itself.”
THE SECRET COVENANT

The second reason is, I started finding videos on youtube, of conspiracy minded people, who know about the luciferian cults, and are convinced that these popular TV magicians, are actually performing occult feats, powered by demons.
Now, i’ve written this up because I don’t totally agree with that at all, BUT i do believe in occult power, and secret societies who also believe in occult power and try to use it to dominate and control everything and everyone. So, there is a grain of truth to this idea, but I think sometimes the illusions are So powerful, that it’s easy for a religious person, or a conspiracy person to rashly jump to the conclusions that something occult is happening.
Here are some more videos trying to prove that these TV magicians are fueled by demons.
Full documentary by the same guy as the dynamo video above, showing how Ghosts/paranormal, UFO/Aliens, and Demons/Occult, is pretty much the same thing. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYoZlURoTj8
I do think his ideas have merit, I just think he’s taking it a bit too far. Just because you don’t understand a magic trick, and it looks like ‘real magic’ does not mean it has to be demons. Come on, let’s not totally abandon our logic here, there is such a thing as being TOO open minded. Maybe many of these people do practice magick and occultism in their spare time, and may even be summoning demons to help boost their career, but as of yet, I don’t think I’ve seen a genuine occult feat on TV, people are not so open about their powers, and with good reason, and those who are very open about it, almost boasting, eventually are proven to be frauds. Usually by James Randi lol. Go figure.
If there was one person, in my expert and professional opinion, who may have occasionally mixed in 5-10% of occult/demonic power in with his illusions and trickery, I would say it was David Copperfield. I love the guy and his goofy personality, but wouldn’t put it past him to be part of some eerie cults of magick. He was part of the inner circle thats for sure, nobody has ever performed feats like him since. Making the statue of liberty disappear, being sawed in half, that’s pretty cool, smoke and mirrors and all.
One instance though, he made The Moon vanish. This was a large widespread illusion, and something he would have no angle control over, yet he did it and amazed thousands. He even got in trouble with NASA because apparently, for the 40-60 seconds it was gone, they could not see it or pick it up on any of their equipment and they freaked out.
Maybe he is friends with the little alien dude on the moon (artificial planetoid) who has control over the stealth/cloak device. lol
So what are your thoughts on this? Whats real and whats not? What does magic mean to you?
Now i’m no psychic, but I get a spooky feeling that the cunning art of deception, trickery, and illusion, is going to get insane over the next few decades. So my advice is to learn up about things like this, learn a few tricks and illusions, learn about hypnosis, and learn about Magick. Or else you may end up exploited and swindled someday soon.
Not everybody uses these powers for good. Keep yours wits about you ;)
Now did you notice what Dynamo did near the end of the video? Made the ‘666’ hand sign right at the camera. If this is new to you, you may want to go back through some of my older articles… or make it easier by simply typing in ‘lady gaga’ in google images. She does all the symbols, 666, circle over the eye, pyramid with the hands, the ‘baphomet’ position, and i’m sure you will find plenty of snake/serpent and Sun symbolism in her videos. People used to represent subtly, but now it looks like they are doing it quite blatantly. Dynamo has also totally sold out, he has Jay-Z (massive illuminati worshipper) on speed dial, performed magic for the british royal family, and is doing commercials and adverts for Pepsi cola.
Sorry Stephen, but you are not as cool, genuine, and ‘down-to-earth’ as I thought you were, your book is totally misleading.
Here is Chris Angel doing the pyramid, and wearing the great seal/eye of providence on his shirt.
Dynamo covering the eye -
Derren Brown emphasizing the one eye symbolism in his own way -
and seen here standing on a masonic checkerboard (temple floor)
CLEARLY there is a connection between the secret societies of the magical illusions industry, and the secret societies of occult networks that dictate every area of our lives.
