Is your model of magick right?
No. It’s not. Mine’s not, either.
We’re much too early in exploring magick to talk about “right.” Everything we’re making now will eventually be supplanted by a better model. We’re at Aristotelian physics, trying to get to Newtonian. No one is anywhere close to Einsteinian or quantum.
So, if your goal is to be right, just bet against every model. Congratulations, you’re right. And utterly useless.
If you want to be useful, aim merely to make a model that’s better than the one we have now. Not right, just better. One that lets you do something new.
You can be right, or you can be useful. But it’s too early in exploring magick to be both.
